Hi Jacqueline and compatriot farmers. I bought Guardian dogs for my vineyard and my neighbor's sheep. No depredation since. I bred my wonderful Akbash-Maremma mother and had 9 beautiful puppies. I kept 2 and my vineyard friend took 2. Craigs List blacklisted me from offering the remaining 5 to shepherds and vineyard owners.
