    Best internment for LGD puppy?

    We will upload pictures when we get some. I am always going outside to work and never remember to take the phone with me. We have a question for any LGD owners. Do you need to brush or bathe them? When we pet her she feels so dirty and gross especially underneath her thick fur.

    Our chickens keep getting attacked, what should we get to protect them?

    Update::: We did end up getting an LGD in November 2019. SHE WAS A GOOD CHOICE! We dreaded the 2 years of trainin, weren’t comfortable getting an adult LGD, were scared of the loses we might suffer from one, but it didn’t go that way. She accidentally killed 1 chicken(yes it was our favorite...

    LGD puppy - does she need a friend?

    Definitely, her mom guards chickens 24/7, and her dad guards goats. She is an Anatolian Shepherd/Great Pyrenees cross.

She really just loves goats(she used to rescue Nubians kids), but she is so busy, and is wanting to choose hobbies that are...

    Best internment for LGD puppy?

    Thank you everybody for the opinions. I feel like there is half the LGD owners who suggest keeping the pup with the chickens from the beginning, and the other half say, to keep them separate, and not give them the opportunity to hurt the chickens. Anyways, we will update everyone in a couple...

    Best internment for LGD puppy?

    We had her sleeping in the barn with the chickens, but is that not a good idea? At night should she stay in the separate pen that she stays in when we are gone?

    Best internment for LGD puppy?

    That’s what we were doing, letting her be with them while supervised, and not with them while unsupervised, but then we thought everyone was telling us to put the dog and chickens together, and not to have them separate. Starting tomorrow, we will start with all @Beekissed info & advice, and see...
