This is our first year using a donkey in the pasture as a guardian animal, Jenny is her name and so far she seems to be working out! She has bonded with the sheep and we haven’t had any problems with predation so far this year, in the yard we have dogs protecting the lambs, we just felt a donkey was easier to keep in the pasture with the sheep, Donkeys are known to be very territorial and protect their paddock form dogs, coyotes and wolfs. #sheepinstagram #sheepfarming #sasksheep #canadianagriculture #canadiansheep #donkey #livestockguardian #jennydonkey #teamsheep #sheep365 #ewes #🐑 #pasture #predation

Everyone has about had it with all of this rain we have been getting. Other areas of the country need it and i would gladly send it their way if I could. Everything is beyond saturated, soggy, and sloppy. Plants are molding and rotting away 😡 Annie of course takes it in stride and doesn’t let it slow her down! Rain or shine this polar bear works around the clock! 🐶 #anniebananie #anniebear #livestockguardiandog #livestockguardian #maremmasheepdog #polarbeardog #farmdogs #farmdogsofinstagram #dogswithjobs #rainraingoaway ☔️

Summer evenings spent on the lawn are pretty great. Days are getting shorter. That means cooler weather will be here soon!

Livestock Guardian 2.0 When I wrote my Fairy Cheesemother and asked her if she liked having a guard llama she wrote back and said yes! She loved her! And better yet...I can have her! Meet Doozy and Emma. Emma the sheep is Doozy’s best friend so they’re kind of a package deal 😍 Thank you so much Vicky for letting Doozy and Emma come live at the farm and protect our herd! #livestockguardian #llamallama #goatdairy

We run 3 large livestock guardians with our stock with great success. Being new to LGDs, I wasn’t sure how this was going to work as far as how much is training and how much is instinct. After raising a few pups now, I’d say it’s 60/40 (but also quite dependent on the temperament of the dog & environment). Before the age of 2 it can be a lot of work keeping them on the right track. This would be a typical training situation for a young working dog by meeting new stock with the right posture. Ber is 1 year old now and much more work than any of our others were but I can say she’s been doing much better after she got a lot of her teenage drama out of the way and probably the better sheep dog and perimeter patrol. She’s starting to really shine now! Goes to show you the ones you really have to work for end up being irreplaceable! Ps. Don’t mind the bloody sheep! He lost his horn in transport. He’s been all cleaned up now! #hardworkpaysoffs #livestockguardian #training #maturity #bersheebathegreat #armeniangampr #rehobothfarm

It's frustrating having to use this head collar all the time. If we don't he seems to have random spazz episodes and rolls around and jumps unless this is on, never mind the intense pulling....anybody else with a big dog or an Anatolian specifically, that have this issue? We're hoping it's just a puppy brain thing he'll grow out of. 🔹 🔹 🔹 Please follow my awesome dog friends Aida💕 - @aidamongrel and Queenie and Jake🐾 - @kingandqueenofhearts_woof 🔹 🔹 🔹 #puppy #puppysofinstagram #dogs #dogsofinstagram #doggy #cute #adorable #love #anatolianshepherd #hound #woof #iloveyou #pupper #canine #bestdogever #bark #goodboy #pup #ilovemydog #doggo #doge #dogphotography #livestockguardian #guardiandog #kangal #healthydogs #sillydog #asd #anatolian
