Important Things to Know Before Owning an Anatolian Shepherd

Let's go ahead and knock the negatives out of the way. In my personal experience, my dog is the jealous type. However, she gets along with well other dogs on the condition that I am not around. Another con, she doesn't deal well with children. There are no children in my household which may be the contributing factor to her dislike when they come around. They seem to make her uneasy. That being said, I feel that if you have an Anatolian as a puppy and raise it with children in the household, that it would be a more positive experience.

Otherwise, she is a great addition to my household. She is simply amazing. She is very intelligent and was easily trained, granted she has a stubborn streak. If someone is at the door, she will respond immediately. You can tell that she has a need to keep the family safe. She loves car rides and traveling with her is easy.

These dogs are not meant to be cooped up all day and will need room to run. Be sure that you are willing to devote a generous amount of time to training as they are a stubborn breed.
