    Thought I would share a little victory moment on my homestead. This is a pic of Sequoia sitting above the chickens watching over them while they finish her lunch at her doghouse on Saturday afternoon. I thought it was really cool to see her doing what she was meant to do so early.

    I know this is a minor victory and we have a long way to go but it was great to see.

    Quote:Thanks, I was really blown away when I looked up to see her at her doghouse and saw the chickens. I thought "now where did she go?" and then saw here sitting on the hill just checking things out. Her sister Genevieve has not surprised me with any LGD traits yet but she is the more docile of the two. Pic of Genevieve below

    That is great! What I love about that picture is that she is completely ignoring the chickens!! Good puppy!

    I love these guys! I got my first one over the summer, and it is amazing how much they "guard" at such an early age. At 3 months old mine growled and barked at a friends' sister and her dog, then came over and sat right in front of me.

    They certainly do know their job.

    Your team is gorgeous!

    Thanks everyone for the polite comments. [​IMG]

    I am having some more success with some commands too. The girls want to jump on me in the morning after I let them out of the chicken run (I put them in there for an extra layer of protection at night) so I have been saying stay down and sit down. They are beginning to understand. This morning they wanted to jump on me but sat down and let me love all over them without getting overly excited. They have very sharp claws and I did take a paw to the face a few days ago. It's hard to control them both at the same time but now with some patience they understand what I want. [​IMG]
