Well-trained hardworking dogs, donkeys, and llamas are an increasingly
popular and effective solution to livestock predation. Properly selected and
managed, these guardian animals protect sheep, goats, and other livestock
from wolves, bears, mountain lions, coyotes, and many smaller predators. Jan
Dohner's Livestock Guardians,   the complete guide to working with guardian
animals, (  HYPERLINK "http://www.back40books.com/item.asp?n=97815

to select the right breed for their needs, establish deep bonds between
guardian and livestock, and train guard animals to carry out their duties
reliably and effectively.  Dohner's practical advice will help anyone
successfully integrate a guard animal or animals into farm life for years of
inexpensive, non-lethal safety and security. This brand new book contains
