Maremma Sheep Dog Pups in Training
With many predators lurking in our mountains, including: black bears, coyotes and mountain lions, the Anatolian Shepherd breed is a perfect fit for our farm. We are accustomed to large breed dogs and love the zero hair care of this breed.
The Maremma dogs originate from Italy. They have longer hair, massive size, noble, distinctive-looking dog with a bear-like head. They are known to be friendly and well-balance flock guardian.
The book Livestock Protection Dogs by Orysia Dawydiak & David Sims was our guide for raising working dog pups and is highly recommended.
Checkmate Farms does not sell dogs at this time.
