Until the cows come home

I did some fun Off Leash training with a clients dog today, Cooper is a 7 month old Golden Retriever that I have off leashed trained and we are starting to up the distractions to make the training.
Doing off leash work around cows is always fun, it is not safe for the dogs or the cows to have the dogs charge the fence and bark, it stresses out the cows and can affect their final product wether milk or meat.
I loved watch the older cows come up to the fence and they pushed the younger cows into the center of them. What a primal behavior for them to protect the young.
Max does a great job as the cows are both curious and cautious, Max has been trained to ignore distractions and sends good energy to the dogs I train.
