December 9 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

As an introduction to livestock guardian dogs, this course will include where to find good information, how to get started with LGDs, and how to find a reputable breeder. You will learn general “rules” for training and keeping livestock guardian dogs, and effectively using LGDs against small and large predators. We will also look at recently completed research comparing various “new” breeds and their effectiveness against wolves. Speakers: Julie Young, Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Wildland Resources, Utah State University; and, Louise Liebenberg, a Livestock Guardian Dog expert, and owner of Predator Friendly Ranching.
