Rarely seen outside of Italy, the Maremma Shepherd is an old breed nearly 2000 years old. Different theories abound of the breeds origin, what is certain several breeds like the Kuvasz from Hungary, the Pyrenean Mountain Dog in France, the Tartra in Poland and the Akbash of Turkey all share some commonality and characteristics. They’re all large dogs with white or creamy coats, similar in form and structure as well as excelling as a Livestock Guardian Dog (LGD) for their respective countries.
.
.

Due to modernization, dogs no longer are needed to perform task as an LGD because of the disappearance of predators (mainly wolves) from areas of civilization, the Maremma has never stopped working since the wolf has never disappeared from the central Italian Apennine Mountains, making it necessary to continually use the dog to protect livestock.
.
.

The breeds true name is the Pastore Maremma-Abruzzese Sheepdog and with this lays claims of the dogs being two (2) separate breeds. The Abruzzese is heavier boned almost Mastiff like in appearance and named by the region it comes from. Whereas the second type (bloodline) is a finer, lighter boned and considered more ‘pretty’, in appearance and stature. The breed club insist the most correct ‘type’ is somewhere midway of these extremes.
.
.

During the Second World War, the Maremma was almost eradicated by the invading German Army who could not contend with their ferocity as guard dogs and shot them on sight. This eventually lead to dedicated breeders in Italy to continue to breed quality dogs that serves a purpose in both the show and working rings.
The breed was exported to Australia in the 1980’s where the breeds working abilities are most useful with helping keep predators away from a livestock rich country and is the second most prevalent country with Maremma dogs. Although still considered RARE in the UNITED STATES it is becoming common to see them working Livestock and in the Show ring.

The Cimarron Uruguayo is a dog native of Uruguay and are today traditionally known for their round shaped ear crop that resembles the ears of a Puma, an animal they once hunted.
.

The Uruguayan government sent in the military to help eradicate the breed that was once destroying farms, livestock and intimidating many of the people that lived in the rural areas.
.

The breed hunted pumas and cougars in the jungles of Uruguay so much so that they almost decimated the animal from the area.
.

Although the Cimarron Uruguayo is not currently recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC), for the betterment of the breed it appears it will be recognized anytime in the near future. FCI and UKC recognition have greatly increased the Cimarron Uruguayo’s international profile.
.

Cimarron Uruguayo remain a relatively rare breed, especially outside of Uruguay although the breed is increasing in popularity. Unlike most of the modern breeds today, the Cimarron Uruguayo remains primarily a working dog, a true breed of purpose.

The calm before the storm….

Stella (4 month old) is the forth (4th) dog I’ve trained for this client. Already started foundation bite work, obedience and of course she’s housebroken while we waited for her ears to heal. We’re 2 months into training…..

It all comes down to setting a plan and following through.

When you look at the picture, what do you see?…

When you look at the picture, what do you see? A man that’s in shape, fit, muscular, skinny/thin/lithe as opposed to not FAT and athletic.
.
.

This is the idea of what a man that’s in shape would look like. SWIPE TO THE LEFT and we’re back at the picture that brought this post on. I’ve noticed comments on how the dog is too SKINNY but in reality that’s what a dog that is in it’s optimal workout shape should look like. An athlete.
.
.

Again, I’d like for those viewing this post to swipe left again and see what a dog that is too SKINNY looks like and know the difference. Emaciated and peak conditioning are two distinctly different physical forms.
.
.

In the end it comes to perception, you might perceive that the dog in the second picture is too skinny but the reality that’s what’s called “conditioned weight” so if you think it’s skinny, heck yeah he’s skinny but it’s a dog low on body fat and high in muscularity.

whч dσgs hσwl?
.
.

Howling is a normal behavior, sharing with it’s ancestral background of the wolf.
.
.

A dog will commonly howl when the persistent sounds of a siren is heard.
Howling will also occur when a dog is feeling territorial or stressed out. More than likely a dog would howl to alert to other dogs that they’re getting close to their territory or signal them to leave. I’ve witnessed dogs howling after a few minutes of their owners leaving, it’s like their saying “come back home already”
.
.

In the end maybe your dog likes to hear themselves howl, just as some of us like singing in the shower 🚿

Your dog is a living, breathing animal with feelings and emotions rolled up into four legs. Nobody’s PERFECT especially a dog learning a new word, behavior or command.
.
.

A puppy and/or a grown dog learning a new such should be given space to make mistakes. It’s about teaching and adjusting until the dog gets it and becomes consistent with the word and operation of it.
.
.

Life’s not perfect, you’re not perfect and your dogs not perfect. Stop wasting time in hoping for perfection and just train them to do it natural.
