Livestock Guardian Dogs-using them effectively

November 5 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

20.00 – 30.00

Two expert speakers on ‘Using Livestock Guardian Dogs Effectively’. Livestock Guardian Dogs offer protection against small and large predators, including WOLVES!
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 LGDs, and effectively using LGDs against large and small predators. We will also look at recently completed research comparing various “new” breeds and their effectiveness against wolves. Register on line: http://bit.ly/JacksonSmallFarms
Louise Liebenberg, a Livestock Guardian Dog expert, and “owner” of Predator Friendly Ranching, will present along with Julie Young, Research Assistant Professor in the department of Wildland Resources at Utah State University.
