I'm going to be looking for an LGD or two in the next couple months. We have an extremely large (260 lbs!) mastiff who will guard the flock when the kids and I are outside with him. He really prefers being a people guardian dog and wants to be wherever the family is, though. I've been tossing around he idea of an Anatolian, but I've heard they can be quite a lot of dog to keep on top of. I'm pretty dog experienced, and i know that some of those "breed finder" websites aree written to scare people from getting anything other than a Golden Retriever. Can anyone give me the low down on how Anatolians are in real life?
