Shepherds are working breeds that were bred to protect or work with flocks or herds of livestock. Dogs have been bred to herd sheep, cattle, reindeer, and occasionally fowl. German Shepherds are undoubtedly one of the most utilized and loved breeds in the world. They have an excellent work ethic and can be taught to do any job, including service dog training. Breed information is available.
Anatolian Shepherds, or Kengals, are amazing shepherds native to Turkey. Kengals are intelligent guard dogs and require room to run and a job to do. This is my Anatolian Shepherd, Kismet. Kismet has been trained in conformation, obedience and agility. She is a great guard dog for the farm.
