Wolf Dogs

  • Aired: 07/23/2009
  • 11:01
  • Rating: TV-G
Farmers are well aware that Wisconsin's wolf population has made an incredible comeback. One Bayfield couple has turned to Maremma dogs for protection. They've been used in Italy to guard sheep from wolves for over 2000 years. They look very much like sheep & are raised with the flock. Early exposure along with the Maremma's instinct for protection results in a great tool to keep predators at bay
