And this is making finding information a challenge. Let me explain. I want a dog that I could train to guard an orchard and garden from maurading wildlife. I have no livestock. About a 3 acre area. Every night. I don't want a dog that will bark endlessly, I don't want a dog that feels the need to kill it or chase it for 10 miles. Just make it go away. I want the dog to know the mailman is cool, the kids and cats must be tolerated. So is this a guard dog? A watch dog? A dog that herds animals away? A LGD? (Probably won't bond with Apple trees, lol. What instincts would the dog be working from? And breed suggestions? Training suggestions?
