Livestock Guardians

Using Dogs, Donkeys & Llamas to Protect Your Herd

By Janet Vorwald Dohner

Livestock Guardians by Janet Vorwald Dohner

Well-trained hardworking dogs, donkeys and llamas are an increasingly popular and effective solution to livestock predation. Properly selected and managed, these guardian animals protect sheep, goats, and other livestock from wolves, bears, mountain lions, coyotes, and many smaller predators.

This complete guide to working with guardian animals shows you how to select the right breed for your needs, establish deep bonds between guardian and livestock, and train your guard animal to carry out his duties reliably and effectively.

Dohner’s practical advice will help you successfully integrate a guard animal into your farm for years of inexpensive, nonlethal safety and security.
