Livestock Guardian Dogs (LGD) –Great Pyrenees
We offer the below options for our Great Pyrenees LGD’s:
- Puppies at weaning: $750
- 1-year olds, trained with our LGD’s: $1,750
MJ and I decided when we got our first two Great Pyrenees, one male one female, that in addition to using them as LGD’s for our flock of St Croix hair sheep, we would also breed them and raise the puppies to be LGD’s as well.
The mother and father have been with us since they were three and four months old and have been fantastic guardians. The eat, drink, and sleep with the sheep, moving from paddock to paddock with them on their rotational grazing cycle. They have a giant igloo that MJ made me buy so she doesn’t worry about them in bad weather…but they never seem to use it!
