Cattle can definitely be 'dog broke.' It just takes awhile, as you mentioned and it takes a dog with a lot of confidence and perserverance, or the cows win. We just never had to take our dogs where cattle weren't used to dogs. Having them in those kind of cattle for one day would be really hard on the dog.


There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

I reduce the "picture size" to 80% before trying to down load them. Hope it helps.
Leave me an personal message if I can help further.

We recently subjected our lives to the presence of a little black terror/angel. Her mother and I have a bond as did granddad. Around 3/8th's Border. I haven't had a pup for better than 40 years. May be delusional, but so far so good. Stay tuned.

Still so far, so good. No ruined shoes but it takes a while to find them. Just started growling out the window at feeding time. Darn sure watches the cows and we have come and sit figured out. DOWN is a priority now. She will be the last pup around here, but may be worth it.

Sounds good. Pictures would be nice.
