Windy Ridge Livestock
Occasionally We Offer Adult Trained LGD. These dogs are over 8 months old and have been out actively guarding our herd. By this age they have experienced a kidding and are well suited to guard their own flock or herd. WE HAVE NO ADULTS AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME!!
Tundra at 4 Months
Belle is one of our foundation females. She is an excellent guard who takes her job very seriously. We have only ever bred her to Tundra as the puppies she produces with him are absolutely beautiful.
The Livestock Guard Dogs here at Windy Ridge Livestock are The Great Pyrenees. We chose this breed because of their docility and kindness towards us and our children and theirfierce protective instincts when it comes to the sheep and goats.
Our dogs are raised with our goats from the age of 2 weeks when we turn them in with a group of along with their mom. At this young age, its beneficial for them to be around what they will one day be guarding. By the time they are mobile the instincts of these great dogs are already at work.
We currently have 16 working guards on the farm. 9 Intact Females named Sasha, Sable, Belle, Pearl, Tola, Marley, Brandy, Moana and Mulan. 4 spayed females Elsa, Anna, Nala and Rapunzel, Our Intact Males are Tundra and Yeti.
All of our dogs are loved on and made over everyday when we chore. We spend more hours in our barn than in our house. All dogs come from generations of working lines and are currently working for us here on our farm.
We have litters arriving throughout the year as farms and individuals need LGD. Females are $550.00 and Males are $450.00. Puppies are raised in the barn with the livestock so as to be better adapted for their new homes and future livestock guardian dogs. Contact Us For More Information and Availability.
**PLEASE NOTE** Our Dogs Are Actively Working Dogs!! They Are NOT Penned OR Tied Up, But Work Guarding Large Fields (25-200 acres). They Guard Anywhere From 25-60 Goats At A Time!! They Are Alert, Agile, and Ready To Chase Predators at a Moments Notice. Puppies Are Raised With Their Mom and Are Following Her and The Goats Around At A Very Young Age!! This Makes For Puppies That Get ALOT Of Exercise!!
