Great Pyrenees Livestock Guarding

This is the area we first looked into when we were considering a Great Pyrenees. We had chickens, rabbits and goats we were looking to have guarded against predators and wanted a breed that was known for their livestock guarding ability.

Although we don’t have large livestock, we have friends that have used Great Pyrenees for decades to protect their cattle and sheep.

When we don’t have the answer personally, we are able to seek their advice and provide the best information possible.
