We might get a GP 😂 I can be the leader but my husband is a softie 😂GP’s were my first LGDs. Despite their tendency to roam, they are friendlier and somewhat easier to handle. If you have a lot of people coming in and out, GPS are the better option.
Anatolians are a more intense breed. They tend to be more distrustful. They have more of an attitude and you MUST be the leader or they will take over and be the boss-and that’s not good.
I started with Sentry, 1/2 Anatolian, 1/4 Akbash and 1/4 GP. Then I got Sheba, 3/4 Anatolian and 1/4 GP. Now I’ve added Buford, AKC registered Anatolian.
Go over to BYH and start reading up on LGDs. Lots of information, I have a thread for each of my dogs. Paris was the first, a free throwaway chicken killer. It took 2 years, but I turned her around, into the best chicken protector ever.
My 2 GPS taught me more than I ever taught them. I loved Anatolians from the start, but felt I needed a better education on LGDs.
