Do your homework before you purchase the ANATOLIAN SHEPHERD. This breed is not for the beginner, needs a fence, a fair leader and a job. Exercise is a must. A healthy diet, shedding is a big Yes. Digging, yes. Barking yes. Is it worth it to keep your farm safe? Yes.
The Anatolian Shepherd does not like change so if you decide on this breed you cannot give up. Your dog needs you to be a fair leader 100% of the time. Your dog needs you to care, too many of these dogs are thrown away due to people not understanding the breed is a serious working dog.
You must be fenced and we suggest double fenced with hot wire. This dog is a serious livestock guarding dog. Please note; if you choose this breed your life will never be the same. Kinda like owning a donkey, the dog has a mind of his/her own and is a self-thinker.
“The Bud Man”
GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TWO AND FOUR-LEGGED!
Miniature donkeys cannot defend themselves from the predator and some older and slower donkeys standard and mammoth cannot. A cougar or wolf is a serious threat.
We love living on our farm theDonkey Whisperer Farm. Every blessing is from GOD in Jesus Christ name,we thank GOD every day for this farm. Dogs are a huge part of keeping our farm working to live in peace and harmony. Predators will destroy your farm. If you are looking for a livestock guarding dog we highly recommendMarble Peaks Anatolian and Shepherd Rest Anatolian breeders.
Please remember the Anatolian dog is not for the beginner dog owner. This breed requires a fair human leader, a fence and is a self-thinker. This breed is not for the beginner dog owner. Large fenced farms are a requirement as these dogs love to bark, run and dig!
The Anatolian is a serious dog, built to remove predators from the farm. It is our belief all animals require clean water, fences and shelter to get out of the elements. A vet is required for all animals just like people need to see a doctor. Common sense is vital to the health of your farm animals and the farm you manage. Please do your homework before making the decision to bring the Anatolian into your life. These dogs do not enjoy change, they need a fair leader just like the donkey.
