My, almost 3 yr old Maremma came from a sheep farm. She left there at 4 mths old, but I didn't get her 'til 7 mths old. She tried to herd me and my 5 cats. If you have a herd they you should be good to go. I think their herding instinct is natural. Just bring her to the herd and see what she does. You should know she will always bark a lot - at everything - even just into the air - to scare away any wolves that might be thinking of approaching. She will destroy your house if left loose, alone and bored as a puppy. Kennel her! Mine is very affectionate and we love each other dearly. Oh, and she is 93lbs. You must also exercise her a lot.
