Anatolian Shepherd Dogs

Anatolian Shepherd Dogs are loving and loyal household companions. Protective and alert, they make excellent watchdogs. They also form strong bonds with children, being both gentle and playful. Because they are so big and strong, careful training is needed from an early age. Anatolian Shepherd Dogs are very intelligent, however, and learn commands and rules quickly.

Things You Should Know

Anatolian Shepherd Dogs can live as long as 14 years. Common health issues include eye problems, hip dysplasia and hypothyroidism. The Anatolian Shepherd needs little grooming attention except during their shedding seasons. An occasional brushing will suffice during non-shedding months.

Anatolian Shepherd History

The Anatolian Shepherd Dog originated more than 5,000 years ago in Turkey. Used by nomadic shepherds for herding, watching and guarding flocks, the Anatolian Shepherd had the size, ruggedness and adaptability for Turkey’s harsh terrain. They first became popular in the U.S. in the 1950s.

The Look of a Anatolian Shepherd

Anatolian Shepherd Dogs have large, muscular frames covered in short coats that can come in almost any color. They have large, somewhat broad heads with square muzzles, hanging V-shaped ears and almond-shaped eyes. Their thick tails sometimes curl slightly at the end. Overall, the Anatolian Shepherd Dog has a confident but calm look.

Talk About Anatolian Shepherds  Not for the beginner

We absolutely love our Anatolian Shepherd, Bear. He is a loving, watchful dog who can't get enough affection. He is awesome with children and a very quick learner.

However, this breed does have its own mind. You need to fully understand dog mentality and pack behavior and establish yourself as alpha, or boss, from the get-go. At the same time, Bear is very responsive to reprimands, and a little goes a long way. Calm, gentle yet firm training, and lots of praise goes a long way with our gentle giant.

They like to roam and will do so at every opportunity, so this is not a great off-leash dog. Thankfully when Bear escapes, he knows where his bread is buttered and he always comes back after a short jaunt!
