  1. Beginners Goat Raising
    This is probably a question that’s been asked numerous times but we have dogs that never seem to stop chasing my goats when they’re out in pasture, so what’re some good methods to stop them from doing so? My most effective method is keeping them in when the goats are out, but that goes by quick...
  2. Mini Mania
    I apologize if this information is already somewhere else on the site, and I failed to find it. I'm trying to plan a yard and shelter for two pet Nigerian dwarf wethers and need to know the space requirements. (It's legal I checked.) I don't have other pets or kids currently, So I can easily...
  3. Precious Protectors
    My plan was to start out with one female Anatolian and eventually asses whether we need to get another once this one is more on the way toward... active duty I'm gonna say. Alright so I know they are different than house pets and all that, but I cannot conceive of while it's a puppy being...
  4. Precious Protectors
    So if I get a livestock guardian dog and it lives outside exclusively, how will I be able to housebreak it since it is not supposed to come inside? I think it would be beneficial for it to know the rules of bathrooming for situations such as the vet and if for some unforeseen reason they would...

I also have a 7 month old Great Pyrenees (who is absolutely no problem and loves my chickens and goats) and a 3 year old Rottweiler. My Rott is a gentle giant and is scared to death of our cat. My Rott runs...
  7. Goat Frenzy
    Hi- does anyone out there use any dogs for herding their goats ? Seems that sheep are used much more for dog herding trials etc. I was wondering if anyone has any herding experiences of goats vs sheep. I have a small farm and teach dog training and have dabbled in some herding. I would like to...
  8. Beginners Goat Raising
    I'm located in a rural part of southwestern Virginia, so for the majority if the time it's peaceful and quiet here. Unfortunately, the neighbor with the smallest distance between my land and theirs owns two very territorial dogs who are not afraid to be vocal toward me. The past few days I have...
  9. Other Pets
    Duke and Walter were found dumped at about 2 months old. They were full of worms, ridden with fleas, and were very sick. We believe that would have been their last day of life. We were coming home with 2 livestock guardian puppies and a goat in our car, when my Mom said, "Those were either...
