Pack-Raised Guard Dogs Fight Harder
At about 3 weeks of age, Negri takes pups out to the pastures where the mothers work with other guard dogs on a daily basis. There the pups quickly learn the importance of working as a team with other dogs and they bond with each other and with livestock. She says the best groups of guard dogs include dogs of different breeds, some of which are perimeter animals that circle the flock while others work at a distance, scouting for problem predators.
Negri is an expert on many large breeds of guard dogs, which mostly originate in Europe. You can contact her at her ranch in Winnemucca, Nev., at 775 623-6292 or by email at email@example.com. Her website is: www.lgdnevada.com.
