Purebred Anatolian Shepherds - Livestock Guardians


We occasionally have puppies available. Our pups are purebred, sold without papers only. If you are considering adding an Anatolian Shepherd to your farm or ranch we suggest researching proper training techniques for livestock guardians. Most of our females seem to have a natural instinct to guard larger livestock but our males have needed direction in how to properly behave with our goats and sheep. In our experience, the males tend to mature slower than the females and need a firm but loving hand to correct unwanted behavior. As for training them to protect poultry, this takes a lot of time and patience on the owners part. And... not all Anatolians are meant to guard poultry. If you are interested in speaking to us regarding a puppy, please feel free to contact us directly. Thank you


Please call 559-676-6705 for more information


*We do not offer shipping on our puppies, we prefer to meet the prospective owners in person and to see if the person and pups personalities are a good match. We believe the puppy should have a choice in who it's new family will be as well.
