Despite all of my angst around this big, white, fluffy, livestock guardian dog (LGD) of ours (between her escapes, her seemingly endless heat cycle, and the necessity for our newly installed electric fencing), I just have to say that…
She is doing so well!
She has calmed around the chickens and the goats and is so very gentle (though sometimes a bit overly enthusiastic) with E! Not even a year old yet, this LGD of ours has such a sweet disposition and an amazing instinct and I m not sure I have ever been so impressed with a dog as I am with her.
Granted, we still have work to do (she’s a little too curious about the chicks in the brooder in the garage) and training won’t be complete…well…ever, really…but I am grateful for her presence and look forward to continuing to get know her 🙂
