  13. There were other women such as Ethyl Conrad that were very influential, but for the most part sheepdog handling and trialing was considered a primarily man's sport.
  14. Believe it or not, but it was fairly uncommon even as the late 1970s to see women working sheepdogs in the public arena.
  15. Here's a link to a short clip of a German Shepherd and a German Tiger dog in a tending contest. This is typical of the type of work tending dogs are used for in Germany: https://stockdogsavvy.wordpress.com/2015/02/19/shepherds-contest-bavaria-1963/
  16. I can totally relate to that. I was doing contract work during that season of my life, so it worked out well for me. I was blessed to have family minding the home fires.

  19. May be of interest to some. The Department of Interior has been testing ways to implement stockdogs in their management programs for several decades.

  20. A DECADE OF USE OF LIVESTOCK GUARDING DOGS: http://digitalcommons.unl.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1042&context=vpcthirteen
  21. I ran across this letter the other day. It wasn't that many years ago when Livestock Guardian Dogs changed the face of a decade of change in predator control policies that neither the livestock industry nor the environmental community happy with. The Taylor Ranch employed LGDs in the 1970s as part of a study where Maremmas worked alongside Shar Planinetz (Sarplaninac) and Anatolian Shepherds. The first Maremmas were introduced to the U.S. in the mid-1970's by the Hampshire College. jeanne
