So we don't really have a need for an LGD right now and plus a second dog is expensive, especially another big dog, but I was just thinking about LGDs the other day and thought of kind of a dumb question... Can LGDs be trained to keep the animals on the property? Or would they just take off? Or is that more a herding dog job? For example, if I got goats, could I let them roam in our woods and/or not fence them in and just let the dog hang out with them and bring them home? We don't really have predators here at least that would take goats so the typical LGD job isn't as necessary so I just wondered if that was possible instead. We have about 3 acres, about half of which is woods, and the neighbors all own woods too, which connects into 2 pockets, but they never go in the woods. But there are neighbors literally right behind us, can see the houses, and we're in a condo/town home development though we're not a part of it. Together the pocket of woods is probably a couple acres, one pockets bigger than the other. But anyway, I guess maybe in this neighborhood a loose LGD might be a bad idea? But maybe not? Would he take off or would he (or she I guess) be able to stay in the woods with them? And also my original thought was not only keeping them in the woods but also even more strictly keeping them only on our property but I guess the woods all look the same to a dog even if I mark it? Again, probably won't get one or if I do, not for a while, but was more just wondering. Not even just for this property but maybe if I ever move to a bigger place. Speaking of which, besides just containing goats, can they be taught the perimeter in general and stay within it/patrol it on their own? Or do they need to be contained? Thanks.
