Walkabout

I believe they have some of the same characteristics as Pyrs. I don't know where you live but no matter where, they must be contained with a minimum of 5 foot fencing.

Tie outs are inappropriate since they need to be able to patrol all corners of their fenced area.

They are independent by nature and think for themselves. That is why they are used as guardian livestock dogs. They don't need humans to tell them how to do their job.

It's dangerous to allow a walkabout since he could be stolen, hit by a car or come into some other danger.

I should also advise that if he isn't neutered, that he needs to be neutered. He may be making unwanted babies along the way for females who, sadly, are not spayed.
