DH and I are looking for some land. Hope to have something within a year or so. Right now, my goaties are in a pen that has 6 foot high panels. When we get some land, we will finally be fencing in some land for them. Im worried about coyotes attacking them. We have a pretty large population of coyotes here. So, we are kinda tossing around the idea of a lgd. Ive started to do some reading and it seems like the great pyres are the most popular. But they seem so big. Im also concerned they would be to hot in our humid summers. Anybody have any experience with any lgd or recommendations? We have hot, humid summers and relatively mild winters with just a few days/nights getting into the teens. Im not looking for something huge either. We dont have small children and Im not looking for a pet. I want a dog that does his job but is still friendly with its people.
