RCF Livestock Guardian Dogs
LGD'S are an important part of our livestock operations. Our 100 acre farm is in a very rural part of So. Oregon and is shared with coyote, bear, cougar, hawk, eagle, and smaller predator like possum, racoon, crows and rats. Our dogs live with and protect our goats, sheep and chickens.
Abby & Maggie used to be best buddies. As they matured, they began to fight. Now, Maggie is with the does and babies and Abby has been returned to her beloved bucks! Thankfully we have several separate areas so can move our dogs around as needed.
We have at least two dogs in each livestock group. They cover large areas and we do not believe a single dog can adequately protect against a pack of coyotes/dogs or a single cougar.
WE HAVE NO DOGS FOR SALE. WE DO NOT BREED DOGS.
Arrow loves his babies!
When kids are lost or scared, they run to Arrow. You can almost see him smile when they climb all over him.
Mary, a purebred Maremma.
We are hands-on with our dogs but they pretty much come to us if they feel like it. They are vicious with outsiders but are OK with strangers if I take them in the pens with me.
I ask that visitors do not pet or try to make friends with our dogs.
Our two house dogs, Odey and Scottie.
