Dohner, who has more than 26 years of experience with guardian animals, helps owners understand the keys to effective livestock protection: careful selection of the right guardian animal, proper guardian livestock bonding, dedicated training, and ongoing problem-solving. Several chapters address the use of guardian dogs; these chapters explain how to evaluate, train, understand, and socialize these hardworking canines, along with info on guardian breeds from around the world. Additional chapters on livestock guardian donkeys and llamas help readers select and train these animals as well.
