It takes multiple dogs to do the work. A lone dog is liable to get killed. It is a, "my gang is bigger than your gang, this isn't an easy place to hunt so move along situation."

Here's one of our LGD's. She and the others make mince meat of predators:



I've watched them kill and devour predators that were foolish enough to violate their territorial boundaries and try for our pigs, sheep and chickens. Kita, pictured above, doesn't take kindly to strangers messing with her livestock.

Most of the time the predators stay out of the fields but every once in a while a young food hardy new guy will come and make a try and pay the consequences.

If you've got strong predator pressures then have many livestock guardian dogs.

highlands, what breed of dog is that?
I'm trying to research which LGD breed will suit our needs best. I haven't seen one that looks like yours. How big is she? She is quite beautiful!

There were two LGD's involved that were hurt. Just lets you know that even one wolf can do a lot of damage.
