has worked dairy goats in a farm setting - moving
them from pasture to pasture, taking them out in the morning,
and bringing them in for milking, as well as generally guarding
them against predators/intruders, serving as nanny to the young,
and keeping the escape artists at bay. She does not know what to
do in "competition style" herding .
Bonnie never grips and uses body language to accomplish
her goals. She is gentle with the babies but
will get as tough as needed to get the job done. She does
not quit on the job.
Bonnie hunts pests within her
territory. She barks treed and also uses
tracking skills to problem solve.
Bonnie is soft-natured, easily
discouraged by correction. A moderately active dog, she
has an awesome on/off switch.
She is very gentle with and
protective of and children that she is bonded to.
Bonnie's boy is autistic and she
serves as his therapy dog, she goes with him to all his
occupational therapy sessions and the OT has utilized her
in teaching him many things.
She will bark whenever anyone comes to the
door, but as soon as they are allowed in, she is happy to greet
the visitor well.
This girl is so nice and well rounded! PRGN!
Sounds like a solid working partner and a well rounded farm
