Great Pyrenees Dogs

When you raise livestock, you are concerned with predators. Some animals are more susceptible, like sheep. Your predator types and predator load vary depending on where you are. Maybe it’s bears, coyotes, hawks, or other dogs. In our area, our primary concerns are coyotes, dogs, hawks and black vultures.

Farms use a variety of animals as guardians, including donkeys, llamas, and dogs. We read a lot about each of these kinds of guardians before deciding on dogs. You can find a summary of the differences here.

Our guardians are an integral part of our farm. The animals listen to each other. They each respect and react to each other’s concerns. It’s a beautiful and amazing thing to watch.
