Training with Live Stock

Ever since Miss Kim told me and momma bouts the AKC Farm Dog Certification, I have been looking efurrywhere for farm animals to meet.  The first ones I found were the Rosin Horses.  They are sweet creatures.  We sniffed noses, then I did my sit, down, stay while momma petted them.  As momma put it I used my manners very well.  :)

A few days later in the other Rosin pasture I found some cows.  They were scare of us but one got brave and came close.  We walked up to the fence, sniffed noses and she tried to lick me.  I didn't care for that and backed up.  She might have licked the curls right off my head!  But then momma put me in a sit/stay and gave the cow a pat on the nose.  I held my sit stay and as momma went to give me a treat the cow tried to lick momma on the arm.  BOL!  That would have been funny. I bet she would have screamed furry loud.  You all remember how I scared momma by licking her toes after I escaped my playpen one night don't you?

Next I found some goats on Elva Loop Rd.  They were curious about me but would not come close.  I just gave a sniff from afar.  Catch ya next time!

Momma says she is proud I could be calm around livestock and focus on my training.  I'm one step closer to my FDC title!!!

Puppy Growls,

Pee Ess: We always keep safety of all animals as top priority.  All livestock is safe in their fenced pastures.  We only approach if all animals seem calm and curious.
