Hello! This is my first post to encosh, I hope it is helpful. This research project in the United States quantified some of the specifics in livestock guardian dog efficacy in the US Northwestern Rocky Mohntains. It followed several breeds of dogs (kangal, transmantano, karakachan, akbash, etc) and evaluated several variables in what determines guard dog success and their impact on local wildlife.
