The dogs are shown excitedly running after dozens of cows, and goats, as they move the animals across the ranch.  

Their owner Sara Jean Wedel, 26, rides a horse behind and films as the pugs herd the animals.  

Ms Wedel said: 'It started when I felt bad for leaving Paisley inside all day while we were out working, so I started taking her along on short days and discovered she was mimicking the Border Collies.

'I started teaching her basic commands for cow dogs and she picked up on it and loved it. 

'She got to the point where she would get depressed if we left her behind at the house.

'Then when we got Tuff it was the same scenario.'
