Lola works sheep and poultry. She can easily move her flock of sheep by gathering, or driving- although she prefers to gather. Although she is very enthusiastic about everything, she is very gentle and nurturing with babies, and adjusts her herding to be gentle with them. She prefers to drive but will nip flanks and has special barks that she sometimes uses when herding stubborn ewes.
She is very biddable and will easily call off even though she would rather keep working them.
If given the opportunity Lola will start checking new places for mice.
Lola announces the arrival of strangers, but does not show aggression to them unless they pose a threat.
What a whole hearted sheep enthusiast she seems to be!
PRGN…. Sounds like a great dog who thrives on her job.
