A Working Farm Dog

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Jenna gets a chance every day to move our sheep around, whether they need it or not.  She loves it and it reminds everyone who’s the boss.  She’s very very good at it.  She came to us trained, so we had to learn how to give her herding commands.  I’m positive she’s way smarter than us about it.  She’ll occasionally shoot me a look like… Really woman?  Is that what you want me to do?   Smart girl.  She’s the perfect farm dog.

    The other dogs realize that she is the alpha and they don’t defend the sheep?

    Hi Sandy! Actually FiFi’s the alpha dog. We introduced Jenna to the guardians very carefully and made sure they understood that she’s ours and under our protection. They ignore her now but I would never leave Jenna in the pasture alone with them.
