WHY 'CHOOSING A PETRELLA?
question asked by many is why many people prefer a Petrellas dog to other
breeds or other maremmas.
One of the reasons is due to the fact that our dogs have shown excellent
both at work and in the defense of families showing an equilibrium that is
not easy to find in this breed.
One of the problems we often have with these dogs is due to the
behavior that these dogs have in contact with strangers.
Many dogs are overly territorial and this creates big problems if they are
left free in the pastures or if we have a guest in the house.
Our dogs in the presence of the owner show no aggression and even if let
loose in defense of a flock do not attack humans limiting itself to ward off
predators for which they were selected.
This feature might seem insignificant to many but it is important for
those dogs used in defense of sheep and cows in protected areas where
meeting between tourists and sheep are order of the day.
This explains the reason for the success of these dogs through word of mouth
of people who have seen them or had created a "tell a Friend" that has made
them extremely popular.
This explains why a noble family, personality of culture and music choose to
have a Petrella to guard their villas.
The method of selection guarantees dogs stronger and lowers the risk of
having problems: dogs, in fact, at birth suffer a natural selection dictated
by the nature without recourse to drugs and only the strongest specimens
arrive at adulthood.
average litter is never more than five samples, and once weaning dogs are
fed exclusively in a natural way with raw meat.
Bitches do not get to do more than three or four litters in a lifetime and
the dogs are not used in the selection remain in the group.
The only treatments that our dogs suffer are the pesticides..
Puppies also are not kept separate from other dogs and undergo training to
stay in the group done by the other members of the group that reinforces
them at character developing in them a strong equilibrium behavior.
The new owners also are supervised and instructed to breed them in the
correct way avoiding or reducing future problems.
Then here is easily explained why too many people prefer our dogs even if
sometimes they are great champions.
