My husband and I are quite fond of large dogs and wanted a breed that would be easy to care for and train. We also wanted to choose a breed that did not have a strong prey-drive. Prey-drives include the instinctive drives that enable most herding and gun dog breeds (most of the breeds in the United States) to excel in the tasks for which they were originally developed. Prey drives are actually stalking and predatory instincts that can usually be shaped for chasing, retrieving and doing other such things on command. Unfortunately, predatory behavior around livestock is generally undesireable. Even a herding dog must allow its predatory chase instincts to be controlled. It makes little sense to keep a predatory animal when there are choices among breeds that can be safely kept with livestock without chasing and killing these other animals.

We are fortunate to have recently obtained some hard-to-get, new bloodlines from Turkey. These crop-eared beautiful, young Turkish Import Anatolians are from authentic working dog parents in Turkey and are not related to, nor were they bred at the large new professional Turkish kennel operations that have come about in recent decades. Their ears were cropped in Turkey in anticipation of the fact that exportation might not have been possible, as in that case, their traditional Turkish owners would have cropped them later and as young adults, they would be outfitted for wolf territory–wearing spiked collars like their adult relatives.

In preparation for our move to a larger, more remote property with additional livestock, we anticipated that having a dog breed with more protective abilities was a necessity. After two years of research, the decision was made. Only one dog existed that could meet all of our needs: the Anatolian Shepherd Dog. Further research of breeders and bloodlines, and the wait for the best possible animals led us to Gerlach Ranch, Carpe Diem Anatolians, and Basrai Anatolians to begin our pack and the Rare Breeds Ranch Anatolian Shepherd Dog breeding program.

While our dogs are family members first, we highly value their working ability.  They work 24/7, guarding our home, family & livestock.  We only make the occasional show ring appearance to exhibit our breeding stock.
