I posted this under Goat Frenzy before I realized this forum existed. I just brought home my first goats and guard dog. Two boer kids, 4.5 and 2.5 months old, and two pygmy kids, whethers, a few months old. I also have a 10 week old pyrenees / maremma cross puppy. Until we picked him up, the puppy slept in the barn with the goats but basically had free run of the farm, and followed the farmer around on his chores. I don't have fencing up yet (ground frozen) so the goats and the dog have been in a 10 x 10 pen in the barn. We have been letting the dog out to eat, potty, and he follows us around while we work around the barn. At intervals, we put him back in the pen. He seems fine with the goats, a little too playful at times but nothing serious. Are we being too indulgent with the pup? I know his job is with the livestock, but we want him to love and respect us also.
