Livestock guardian dogs offer protection against small and large predators, including WOLVES!
As an introduction to livestock guardian dogs this course will include where to find good information, how to find a reputable breeder, and how to get started with livestock guardian dogs. You will learn general “rules” for training and keeping livestock guardian dogs, and effectively using them against large and small predators.
We will also look at recently completed research comparing various “new” breeds and their effectiveness against wolves.
Louise Liebenberg, a Livestock Guardian Dog expert, and “owner” of Predator Friendly Ranching, will present along with Julie Young, a Supervisory Research Wildlife Biologist with the Predator Research Field Station for the National Wildlife Research Center (USDA-WS) with an appointment as Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Wildland Resources at Utah State University.
