Guard Dogs for Herds

Some breeders have guard dogs to protect their sheep or goat herd from wolf attacks. These dogs live with the herd all year round and develop a very strong attachment to the animals in the herd. They are trained to dissuade the predator; as soon as they sense a potential danger, they interpose themselves between the intruder and the herd by barking. Whenever possible, go around the herd in a calm manner (do not raise your arms or stick), keep your dog on a leash and get off your bike.
In case of good or bad encounters with these dogs, you can fill in a questionnaire on the website:; this will help us to improve the cohabitation between the mountain users.
You can also go to the state services website for more information:
