we got a great pyrenees puppy and want to train him to be a goat protector. We put a kennel in the goat pasture since hes too young to be turned lose with the goats without getting hurt. We figured this way he was still with the goats but protected, but its driving me nuts leaving him in the kennel. I have had local people tell me not to let him outside of the goat pasture or Ill ruin him, but it seems like even though he's going to be a working dog he still needs to have time to run and play. It just doesnt feel right to me but then Iv only had dogs as family pets. Would those of you who have raised one as a pupppy for protection please share how you trained him? Would letting him out to play with the grandkids and run around the yard really ruin him as a guard dog?
