Farm Dogs – Livestock Guarding Dogs

 

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 the Donkey 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 recommend Marble 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.

Donkey Training 101 Video On Demand – Train The Owner To Train The Donkey

Did you know the best person to train your donkey is you the owner of the Donkey?

The donkey is not a flight equine usually. The donkey is seriously a thinker. The donkey is always going to try and survive any issue that may harm him or her. This means you the owner need to show the donkey you will lead and not follow. A leader is a leader 100% of the time.

Extroverted donkeys or Jack behavior can challenge you. All animals and people can spook when scared. The horse is the flight equine. “More Go Than Whoa” Remember some horses are INTROVERTS. 

Introverted donkeys will not move their feet or lay down when scared or feeling stressed. “More Whoa Than Go” 

tubaropehalterdwf124cr

Learn the signs of stress, relaxation along with how to lead your donkey and never pick a fight with donkey as you will lose. Donkeys are deep thinkers. If you do not have a plan with a donkey the donkey will get a plan and sooner than later the donkey is leading you.

If you would like to learn how to train your donkey using resistance free methods check out our SELECT VIDEO ON DEMAND and purchase our rope halter with matching lead line. These training tools are an essential part to you learning to live in peace and harmony on your farm. Donkeys need to trust us humans first.

Next we train the donkey to follow us as a leader. Never let anyone abuse your donkey, not another human or animal. Great fences help keep your donkeys living in domestication healthy. A donkey who is in fear has a very difficult time learning just like humans.

Humans have a very difficult time learning anything new if they are stressed or in fear. When you can understand the donkey’s behavior and control your energy, emotions, voice, timing, reward system. The release is when the donkey learns.

The donkey is amazing! I did not ride my donkey or horse for three years due to a serious injury. Guess what my Mammoth donkey did not need a tune up. My horse did 🙂

Donkeys are smart not stubborn. Learning to train a donkey will change your life forever as this is a journey into self awareness. I am accepting a limited number of one-on-one students in 2017. I have been training the owner of the Donkey worldwide since 2010.

Enjoy your farm, enjoy your life.

Training the owner to train the donkey saves donkeys lives from auction, sales and slaughter. We purchased our twenty acre farm in Sequim, WA with nothing on the land.

We are hosting our first live student here on the farm soon. Our virtual Video vault will be up and running soon helping more donkey owners learn how to train their personal donkey themselves.

Stay tuned as the Donkey Whisperer Farm has big changes coming in 2017.

Thank you for re-blogging this post.

Sadly the donkey is still the underdog of the equine world making education difficult to find for the owner of the domesticated donkey. Here on the Donkey Whisperer Farm we work hard to train the owner to train the donkey and provide educational support for the health and well-being of the donkeys domesticated environment, shelter, pasture, toys, another donkey to play with. Donkeys need another donkey to live with. Geldings enjoy living with another gelding. Jennies with another Jennie. A Jack (Stallion) should not live with another donkey. Inner breeding can start as early of six months.

Many people think the donkey is easy to keep healthy in domestication. This is not true! The donkey evolved in the desert requiring us humans to learn the strict diet of the donkey and more.

If you need help learning how to prepare your donkey for the trimmer or more we are working very hard to help you. Our Donkey Halters are a tool for you the owner to train your donkey. Please never leave any halter on your donkey while not in 100% attendance to avoid self-mutilation or death.

We are all about donkeys, mules and horses!

Donkey Whisperer Farm is all about donkeys, mules and horses! We celebrate, educate and promote these magnificent and intelligent beings. We are dedicated to building public awareness about equine personality, behavior and are deeply invested in educating and empowering you with safe, holistic, resistance-free training methods that foster a strong bond between you and your equine.

The Farm

Nestled in the breathtaking Dungeness Valley on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State is a magical place known as the “Donkey Whisperer Farm”. Twenty acres of sprawling pasture, Paradise Paddocks, and a state of the art barn is home to “Rio” a magnificent Ambassador for the American Mammoth Donkey, “Tuba” and “Oboe” two rescued Standard Donkeys and three adorable Miniature Donkeys, “Rocketman”, “Maximus” and “Roy”. Joining this menagerie of Longears are two gorgeous horses; “Miss Lily” a purebred Palomino Quarter Horse and “Miss Trophy” an elegant black American Saddlebred.

Donkey Whisperer Farm is also home to trainer and animal behaviorist Melody Johnson and her husband Scott. Here, Melody’s life long passion for equines drives her commitment to sharing and educating the public about donkey behavior and welfare and teaching owners and caretakers natural and progressive training methods for donkeys, mules and horses.

As Melody reflects, “In 2007, after purchasing an untrained twenty-month-old Quarter horse filly, a nine-month Mammoth Donkey gelding and a thirteen-year-old Miniature Donkey gelding, I began looking for a natural approach to training my diverse family of equines. I clearly needed training tools and instincts that crossed species lines without the use of resistance or punishment, but at the same time kept me and my equines safe.”

Nearly a decade later, the foundation of Melody’s Online Training Program is natural horsemanship, resistance-free techniques, balanced energy, leadership and great respect for all equine. She calls upon her spiritual intuition and gifts from Jesus Christ, which include her unique ability to bond with equines, empathetic nature and natural instincts.
