Overview
Originating over 6,000 years ago in Turkey, the Anatolian Shepherd were bred to be used as a guardian of both property and livestock. This breed was noted for being able to make independent decisions as well as for their ability to withstand harsh climates, which was necessary for their nomadic way of life. This ancient breed is regarded as the national emblem of Turkey.
Character
The Anatolian Shepherd is large and bold. This breed possesses great endurance and is extremely agile. They are confident, reliable, proud, and hard-working. A majestic and noble breed, the Anatolian Shepherds versatility enables them to fulfill such duties as companion, guardian, and show dog.
Temperament
A loyal, deeply devoted, and intelligent breed, the Anatolian Shepherd is calm, affectionate, and brave. They are possessive and protective of their family, home, and territory. Due to their large size they are not recommended for homes with small children. They will generally get along with dogs and other household pets they have been raised with. They are wary and suspicious of strangers. This breed has a tendency to bark loudly for extended periods of time and is prone to digging. The Anatolian Shepherd may be stubborn and dominant. They are not recommended for the sedentary, apathetic, or novice dog owner.
Care
The Anatolian Shepherd requires brushing once a week with special attention given to the coat during the heavy seasonal shedding. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary. This breed is highly susceptible to fleas, ticks, and fly bites. They may also be prone to hip dysplasia, eyelid entropion, sensitivity to anesthesia, and hypothyroidism.
Coat
The Anatolian Shepherd has two basic coat types: short and rough. The short coat is approximately one inch in length; the rough coat is approximately four inches in length. The neck hair is longer and thicker than the hair on the body. This is a double coat breed that has a thick undercoat. The color of the coat is typically fawn with the mask being black. However, other frequently seen colors are brindle, pinto, or white. The Anatolian Shepherd is a seasonal heavy shedder.
Training
This breed must have early socialization and basic obedience training. They will not respond to harshness or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with respect, firmness, fairness, patience, consistency, and love. The Anatolian Shepherd requires a dominant owner.
Activity
The Anatolian Shepherd needs an inordinate amount of exercise and thrives on being given a job to do. This breed is not recommended for apartment, condominium, or city dwelling. They do best in a rural farm setting where they can romp and roam; or in a home with a large securely fenced yard.
