Oriana's Maremmas

Thanks to Oriana for her 'interview' on her life with maremma sheepdogs

What is your breed? Maremma

When did you start with these dogs? 7 years ago

What made you choose your breed? History and size

How many do you have? One (2 in 8 weeks time...)

Describe how your dogs live with you

Warlock lives in a larger than normal town block.  
He guards house, car, block, us, old lady accross the road, next doors children and anything else he can see.  
He is well known all over Bathurst NSW and is often in the paper.  He goes to many community events to meet new people and dogs and he is able to promote Maremmas as a well tempered and friendly breed instead of the aggressive dog most know of, tied to trees in paddocks.  

He is extremely intelligent (as most are) and can generally see things before they happen.  He is very happy with a rub on the tummy and also sitting on the front verandah watching, watching, watching.  

He has shown quite a lot and does well there.  Our new bitch will also show and be just as well socialised as Warlock.


  1. Congratulations on your new baby girl !! I hope she is all you hope for and shines bright for many many years to come.

  2. Oriana will have to let us know when the new baby arrives and give us a photo update!
