    Meet Toby and Oliver, my new LGDs! They're Colorado Mountain Dogs and are 4wks and 4months old. They're staying with mom for another few months but I can't wait to work with them!!

    They'll be guarding chickens and goats from coyotes, bears, and mountain lions as well as the usual small predators. We also have horses but they don't need as much guarding.

    They're a little expensive, the pups are $850. They come from a proven line of working dogs and learn to guard from their parents who are working on the ranch, so you pay a little more for that.
