Longhorn Safety
Posted on Jul 22nd, 2020

Date: July 22, 2020
Subject: Longhorn Safety
We want to remind everyone that Longhorns are livestock, and like most livestock, they can view dogs as a threat. There are a couple of things you can do to keep you and your dog safe if you encounter Longhorns in the road. 
1.) Turn around. It is never a good plan to walk through a herd of livestock with a dog; no matter how big or small the dog. 
2.) If the cow makes an aggressive move towards your dog. Let the leash go. Dogs are much faster and more nimble than we are, they are also much faster than the Longhorns, so do not make it a package deal. 
3.) Make noise and wave and clap your hands to get them moving a different direction. 
I would be happy to schedule some time with any residents that would like some training in this area. These Longhorns are very easy going, but they are big and they can hurt you if you panic or lose your balance etc.
