Links to LGD's and other Guard Animals

Admin, Can we have these links posted as a sticky or sub-title site inorder for people to add links?

I have gathered some links from post's here and from my own research.
I think it would be helpful for people that are new to owning Guard Animals to have quick access to links, without having to go through all the post to find them.

Thank you for your consideration,

Basic principles of Kangal training - excellent article although breed specific, can be applied somewhat to some other breeds as well.

CAO and Cousins magazine, very good source for breed related information.

Goatress, really like the kangal mexico link. Lots of great information. The more I read of Kangals, the more I like them. I have to quit this or I will be bringing many dogs home from your house. Thanks for the info
