There are several livestock guardian dogs. Each breed has different characteristics. After researching the different breeds carefully, we decided the Great Pyrenees was the livestock guardian for us, mostly because of their people friendly demeanor as well as protective nature. We want to have family, friends and people interested in our farm visit us, and we enjoy being interactive with all of the animals, so we weren’t interested in having a breed that strictly bonds with the goats and not us as well. We chose our dogs from other farms that have similar livestock and goals as to what we have; goats, chickens, ducks, guineas and a mini pig. So all of our Great Pyrenees come from working lines. We also felt that having AKC registered dogs with a history of good breeding standards as well as guarding livestock was important.
