I walk Ruby my 3 month old pup (on leash) up our very quiet country lane and of course its surrounded by fields but with high hedges so she can't see over them. However there's a few sections without hedges and there's just a fence and whenever we walk past there and the cows are close to the fence Ruby will refuse to walk past and will want to dart back down the lane. She doesn't shake or pant or seem overly distressed by them, she just wont walk past them if they're too close so I don't know if she's afraid or is just very wary? If they're far enough away she couldn't care less, although she will stop occasionally to look at them, as if to make sure they're not coming close or something. And if we're on the way back home and the cows have come closer to the fence since we walked by earlier she'll park herself on the grassy verge and wont move, nothing will get her to budge. She was introduced to cows very slowly and on her own terms, we'd walk down the lane where they had a few cows in a barn so she could see them from a distance (I'd treat & praise her for just looking at them or being around them and not bothering with them) and if she wanted to be further away I let her, but mostly she just wanted to dart as far away from them as possible. In a way its fine as I'd prefer she be wary of cows and not want to chase them, but considering where we live there's going to be cows around often and of course lots of places where I'd take her to walk there would be cows there too and right now if the cows are too close to the fence she'll just want to leg it back home. So I don't want that to carry on when she's older as it'd be difficult to walk her anywhere around here. I don't know if its something she'll just grow out of as she matures and gets bigger, as I understand how scary cows and horses would be to a small puppy (she does the same with horses too but horses are far less common than cows here). So far she's fine around other dogs (she's met some pretty big dogs too) and sheep and smaller animals like birds and squirrels, its just cows. So I'm just looking for some advice on how I could handle this as I don't want to do anything that could make it worse. So any tips would be greatly appreciated! Also I'd appreciate no one suggest we just walk somewhere else, we're surrounded by fields for miles so there's no avoiding them unfortunately.
