There are quite a few Livestock Guardian Dog breeds, many of which have left their native countries in such small numbers as to remain an almost total secret beyond their countries' borders. Others have become so accepted that they are exhibited regularly at dog shows around the world. The following is a nearly complete list of the known Livestock Guardian Dogs, their native countries or areas, and links to related WWW sites. If you have a site that you would like added to the list please e-mail me at the address at the bottom of the page.
