Posts Tagged ‘Livestock guard dog’

Eber is a great guardian for the livestock, but a really sweet guy to people.  He has an outstanding pedigree full of Turkish imports.  He has a lot to offer the breed and would be very valuable in a breeding program.  We purchased him as a puppy for that reason, but we have decided not to breed these great dogs, so Eber is available.  He is UKC registered and has already had his DNA recorded with them.  Not only would he make a great guard dog (which is currently is doing), but he would be a great show dog, or a great pet.

We refer to this group of sheep as “the wethers”- even though there are a few ewes in the group.  We use them to train our herding dogs.   The sheep with docked tails were “dog broke” sheep we purchased.  We started with good, calm sheep and they have helped teach the new “herding sheep” how to behave.  When working with inexperienced dogs, it is nice to have a group of sheep that are calm and trust the shepherd.    They have a winter pasture next to the barn and Emine prefers to be with this group of sheep in the winter months.
