Livestock Guarding Dogs, Farm Working Dogs


Wondering how farms manage coyotes, predators? 

Sampson (LGD) Great Pyrenees is gone to heaven fall of 2015. We miss you big dog!

Every farmer wants to be able to trust that their herd is safe. The trained Livestock Guardian Dog(s) can take the worry away along with providing you with companionship.

Did you know?

Predators (domesticated dogs, coyotes, cougars etc.) can kill your equine; Horses, Donkeys and Mules. Yes! I have had students from all over the world send me photos of their horse, donkey and even mule attacked by domesticated dogs, coyotes and cougar.

I have read and seen it all in the business of teaching the owner to train the donkey (mini, standard and Mammoth donkey) Select DONKEY WHISPERER FARM, LLC

Please never leave any equine living alone. All equine are herd animals. They need to live in pairs, please understand donkeys enjoy living with another donkey as donkeys grab the neck in play along with much more donkey behavior. Donkey behavior is one of comedy and can turn violent with a Jack (stallion horse world) smaller animal.

A great fence is imperative to helping but sadly predators can dig under or jump over. Thus why a Livestock guarding dog is essential to keeping your farm safe. All livestock guarding dogs need training and they must have a large farm to run and protect. Truly the livestock guarding dog is a huge asset to the farm.

We love our livestock guarding puppy (almost one now) he is the great Anatolian Shepherd, a farm Livestock Guarding dog, a working dog and one of our beloved pets. When our Great Pyrenees (LGD) dog Sampson died last year we moved over to the Anatolian Shepherd. This is a wonderful smart dog. Not for the beginner trainer. These dogs need a huge area to work, run and play, a great fence is another important factor. If you are a new person in the training of a dog this is NOT the dog for you. These dog need 100% training, as they are smart. The Anatolian Shepherd will memorize his farm, how many donkeys, dogs, horses, cows, sheep does he have. This dog will bark and let you know when any predator comes near the farm or a farm animal is missing.

Looking for a smart healthy Anatolian?

Make sure you find a great breeder to help you fit the needs of your farm. All animals need shelter, food and water.

LGD’s dogs are not herders, nor are they attack dogs!

They are exactly what they are called: “Guardians”.  Their job is to live with the stock and make sure nothing gets in to hurt, steal, or eat it.  Their first line of defense is just their size; they are enormous.  If size and a menacing bark do not deter, they will place themselves between their charges and perceived danger.  If all else fails, they will resort to violence, and woe to anyone on the receiving end of over 100 pounds of angry dog. I highly suggest posting NO TRESPASSING SIGNS, having a great fence with a locked gate.

Testimonial From My Virtual Student In New Mexico, I live in Washington State

Testimonial From My Virtual Student In New Mexico, I live in Washington State

Hi Melody,

I just have to tell you this training with you is one of the most empowering things I have ever done! You are the best teacher. I just got in from a 15 minute lesson with Moby and we’ll do another one later. I made the adjustment to only walk beside him on the walk on (not backward). Omg this whole thing working with him / how I approach him / being the leader is such a powerful shift. I feel I am really starting to soak up the mind frame / energy / attitude you are teaching me with each lesson and it’s deepening my relationship with both of my donkeys. Moby can’t get enough, and Abby is interested and yep, you’re right, she’s learned by watching him. I just did a little lesson with her and I’m amazed.

The hardest thing for Moby right now is the Whoa and extending that time. He wants interaction!!! Ha ha. So the rope all over is easier. But he is getting better and is so willing. I did try a Backup! As he was in my face and he’s got it. My adjustment there is to stay where I am (not move toward him while he moves back, I’m the leader, he does what I ask, I’m getting it!)

Thank you again so much, you really are such a gifted teacher! And so encouraging. That’s what I needed. I wasn’t sure if I had what it took. This is so empowering.

I’ll review the info you sent and send you new tack pics too.

Have an awesome weekend:)
