Orchard Guard dog?

by Arden Delidais

We have owned many dogs and enjoy them. Can a Great Pyrenee be trained to patrol an unfenced orchard in the country? We have terrible deer, elk and moose problems. We live in central Alberta with lots of snow load the last few years.

Well, yes but it will take a lot of work. orchards are not like living charges with which they will stay much more readily as they aopt them as charges.

in the case of unfenced territory, they would rather have a tendency to chase off the pest .
I would suggest some sort of fencing to show them the borders of their territory.

How far would the dogs be from your house or barns? Are there farm animals close by?
