From Dog Breed Info: The Maremma is a friendly and well-balanced flock guardian. For several decades, it has also achieved success as a companion dog. Sober and dignified, this loyal, brave and determined dog makes an excellent guard dog without being a constant barker. It is correctly described as affectionate, but not dependent. Working lines that are put out to work will not easily follow your every command submissively, as they are bred and trained to be independent. You must display calm, but firm, confident and consistent leadership toward the dog in order to make it listen. It is said you have to be very consistent with the Maremma but if you are you’ll have yourself an extremely loyal and attentive dog. Also be careful if you live in an apartment. They are accustomed to wide open spaces so if you do live in an apartment make sure to walk them and get them out for some exercise. In the mean time please enjoy these great photos of the Maremma.
