The 10 Best Livestock Guard Dog Breeds

Dogs have been living and working with people for centuries.

One of the earliest jobs that our ancestors trained and used their canine friends to do was to work as livestock guardians.

Protecting and watching over domestic livestock to ensure that they don’t become an easy meal for wild predators was, and still is, an important task.

While technological advances have changed and modernized many aspects of farming, the role of the livestock guardian dog has remained largely unchanged.

For starters, LGDs are typically large or giant breeds, as this isn’t a task for a small dog.

They usually have thick all-weather coats that make it possible for them to spend most of their working lives outdoors.

They also need to get on with or at least tolerate the constant presence of the livestock, and they need a calm, patient, and alert manner and exceptionally strong guarding instinct.

In this video, we’ve listed the top 10 Best Livestock Guard Dog Breeds.
