Livestock Guardian Dog (LGD) ever watchful for predators

Never let anyone tell you that it's not possible to farm in predator country because it is. Shepherds and herdsmen have been doing it here for centuries and without fences. The difference here is that the sheep are never without a shepherd and LGDs present.

 

There has been lots of bear activity in and around the village over the past days so the dogs were on high alert. We also have wolves and lynx in the area so the dogs have to work as a team to maintain an effective deterrent.

 

I was walking with Bandi, one of the village shepherds and five of his livestock guardian dogs.
