We just got a Polish Tatra puppy, a rare LGD that is said to be amazing - all the perks of a Great Pyr, but said to stay with the sheep and not wander. We will see, but she is awesome so far, and SO smart and calm, considering she is still a little puppy. I can’t wait to see what she’ll be like as an adult. We keep her and the livestock in a barn at night until she is big enough to protect them. My question is, should we get a second dog so she is not as lonely out there? We don’t need two for predators, as we mostly just have a rare coyote, and only two acres pastured right now, so she can handle it when she is older. I know people have very different opinions on this, but wondering what is the best choice for our situation ( 2 acres, 5 sheep, a dozen chickens). The extra cost is not a factor for us, I want the dog to be happy even if a second one isn’t needed practically. But will the sheep be enough company for her? What are the downsides to getting a second one, besides the costs of course? Any thoughts on this or experiences shared is appreciated!
