    Llamas are better, … Llamas are better, sheep are scared of the dogs, llamas will kill coyotes to keep all livestock safe.

    I absolutely will! … I absolutely will! Do you like the German shepherd? I like them because they were bred to do the job of livestock guardian and herder in 1. A lot of people know them as military/police dogs bit forget their history as they were bred to both guard sheep from predators and also herd them doing the job of 2 in 1. I will do all i can to get this video popular as im very fond of livestock guardians and their jobs!

    I loved this video! … I loved this video!! Liked and Favorited! I love all breeds, but have a special admiration for the livestock guardian dogs as aside from representing 1 of the oldest jobs of dogs, they also have an important job and save lives of both predator and prey. The Anatolian, CAO, Maremma, and Great Pyrenees are awesome.

    We had a Lab/Akbash … We had a Lab/Akbash? who just died. He was a 100+lb white teddy bear. He was silently alpha everywhere he went and guarded our small boys from 50 feet away for 13 years. If coyotes were howling, he’d quietly walk the perimeter and stay up all night, then come in and look around to see all was in order. A good dog is gentle with kids but somehow puts out a crazy vibe to other animals. We stumbled into understanding what a herd/guard dog is all about at our local shelter 13 years ago. Nice film.

    This is such an … This is such an awesome video. I just hope that a family without a lot of knowledge of these breeds doesn’t think they can have one in a family pet neighborhood and expect kids to hang all over them. I work with quite a few LGD on ranches and in family homes, while some are great, others are dangerous with incorrect handling and management.

    Nice parity/ … Nice parity/coexistence with a surrounding wildlife! Good job! Though, you should try a Cocasian Mountain sheep dog…

    Think that this … Think that this story misses something…. Macedonian Sharplaninec dogs by me are the best for this type of work. Their senses are more developed,they sense all predators far more earlier, and their abilities are greater then other breeds and more efficient by securing their perimeter, they are more sturdy,agile,strong,brave,consistent,loyal,and durable.
