Since 1994 I have been involved with dogs, beginning with my lifelong passion for Golden Retrievers. Over the years we have raised dogs, obedience trained and enjoyed them as part of our family. In more recent years we have added the Polish Tatra Sheepdog, a working dog that protects our livestock on our small family farm. We strive to acquire the best bloodlines and genetics to generate the best possible dogs that we can pass on to others.

Do Polish Tatra Sheepdogs like water? Do they like other animals farm and Yorkies? How many are there out there? Do they have a good demeanor?



The Polish Tatra Sheepdog is not known for liking water. They are fine with farm animals as they are livestock guardian dogs. They can do well with small dogs as long as they are socialized with them as puppies, but if they are not, then they are not good with small dogs. They have a good temperament, but they are a working dog, not much of a companion or family dog.


Polish Tatra are said to make excellent conpanion dogs, security police dogs, and rescue dogs. For these reason the breed was nearly lost due to the world wars. Tatras are livestock guardian dogs, however very dissimilar to there cousin breeds Kuvasz, Marremas, & Great Pyrenees, being boasted due to better breeding. They are not known to be aloof or wander as the other lgd breeds, and superior


Well, Anonymous, in one comment you say they are "not much of a companion... dog" and then you turn around and say they "make excellent companion dogs". Which is it? Personally, I think they're great companions as long as they are raised that way but that's just my humble opinion.


Our Tatra Mountain sheep dogs love paddling, but not interested in swimming much. They are a dog that need socialising with people, children and other breeds very early on and regularly so that they relax and becime unfazed. Some small breeds can be very aggressive to large dogs like this, so you need to watch out for that as that can create problems


My Polish Tatra Sheepdog loves to swim with us. He's calm and friendly around other dogs (unless provoked) and has learnt to tolerate cats. They are not a common breed, not even in native Poland. As for his demeanor: he's one of the best dogs I've ever had. Even with lots of people around, he remains friendly and calm. His only weak spot is his hunting instinct; despite constant training, I can't trust him around deer, hares and other larger wildlife.


All of ours love to either jump in bed and crush you all night or lay right next to the bed never far away. They look, and sniff at day old chicks each spring. Commands from youth trained to where they can work to bring home and entire flock of sheep or even the geese with little effort. Our male stood his ground against a black bear nearing the newborn lambs while I went for the riffle inside. He stood, and the medium sized bear turned and walked away. If around cats from birth, they pay little to no attention to them. Kids can lay on them and pull ears and noses. Door knock, or car door slam, they alert to the front hall. They know the difference between farm vehicles and others. They follow up and down the fields for hours and when tired, just sit on a hilltop between the fields and the barn like we will just wait for you to go home for now. Smart, easy to train, and a families best friend.
