I have been bugging Tim for months (and even more so after our intruder incident down in AZ) to get at least one LGD pup started with the herd. He has always had some excuse for why that was a terrible idea. Until yesterday! He finally said "Okay... just the one" We picked out a male 1/2 Anatolian 1/2 Pyr boy from a goat farm out north of Spokane WA. His mom is a goat guardian and his dad is currently guarding a huge flock of sheep. We are going to pick him up in a week! Here are a couple pictures He looks like an Anatolian with a little too much fur goin' on He's in the middle on the last one Those are his two available brothers at his sides. So now the big question for those of you who have raised and trained LGDs from pups to adults- Any pointers? I'm trying to read up as much as possible, any recommendations? My goats are already decent around dogs, as long as the dog is mellow. I plan on putting him in his own pen in the center of the goat pen so they can all acclimate. Grain will be fed at stations around his pen so the goats associate yummy stuff with him. Minerals and Baking Soda will also be on the outside of his pen. I've read that you don't let them walk off property EVER, that you drive them off and THEN can take them for a walk so that they learn to never leave the property. Any other major important stuff like that? Thanks so much, an I'll keep you all posted!!
