We're just starting to build on a square six acre parcel (420' x 644'). Building the house and barn at the same time with visions of several sheep and/or goats and chickens along with rabbits we already have. Will probably only have a couple of acres in pasture, due to house/barn/garden/pond layout. We're on a fairly busy county road and are really resisting putting a fence around the whole thing. We know we want to get a dog at some point. Really like the idea of a LGD but it seems we may be too small for that. We want to do some intensive grazing, but with just a handful of sheep or maybe even a couple mini cows there isn't much need for "herding". We're townies now, with no dog. At the farm it will likely be outside all the time. I know favorite dog breeds come down to simple preference. But...if this set up was you what breed would be best??? Thanks!!
