Do you have livestock or fowl that needs to be protected? There are several different methods that can be used. A livestock guardian dog is one of those options, but there are pros and cons. See if an LGD is right for you:
The pups will be four weeks old tomorrow. They are just adorable. Their individual personalities are really starting to come out. Little Diamond girl is so saucy and tends to 'talk' Anatolian Shepherd at us rather than bark!
Full and Half, two lovely Dutch marked Anatolian puppies having a good nap! Although it is not easy to see in Gunther's photos, he is actually Dutch marked. In this litter of Gunther's there are three Dutch marked Anatolian Shepherd pups!
At just 8 days old I went to check on puppies and look what I found! One little puppy climbing away! Although she must have become tired and fallen asleep as she was passed out cold up there! :-)
Lane's grade 7 class were all required to make a "Passion Project", he chose Anatolian Shepherds as his topic! Here is a short video clip of the creative portion of his presentation. He was asked to present the project in front of the school board. Way to go Lane!
it is official Calypso has lots her girlish figure! We are expecting puppies around February 5th, 2016! Keep posted to our blog or Facebook page for updates!
The Romanian government, which is largely made up of hunting senators, has voted to limited the number of lgd's that a shepherd can use. This is happening in Romania, where Europe's largest population of Brown Bear and wolves can be found. We should be educating more on not overworking our dogs, versus cutting back. Without my Anatolian Shepherds the wolves and coyotes would destroy my flock.
