Item Description...
Simple text and expressive photographs demonstrate how guardian dogs--in breeds imported from Europe--are raised with sheep and instinctively know that there job is to protect the herd from predatory animals among the Rocky Mountains.

Publishers Description
Like other livestock in the Rocky Mountains, sheep need protection from predators, such as coyotes and wolves. Guardian dogs help ranchers protect their flocks. But they are not the typical herding dogs, and they are not native to the region. The breeds were imported from Europe, where they have been guarding livestock for thousands of years. As puppies, they are placed in fleece and learn to identify with the smell of sheep. It isn't long before they meet their first sheep and mingle with the flock. With little training, the dogs instinctively know that their job is to keep a lookout for danger and now and then do some babysitting. Cat Urbigkit's engaging photo-essay shows how guardian dogs form a bond with the sheep that lasts throughout the dogs' life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A wonderful book for young dog lovers  Feb 2, 2007
I don't normally write reviews, but when I saw that this book had not been reviewed yet I had to stop and write one. My [...]son took this book home from his library at school and we have really enjoyed reading it together. The photos are beautiful and touching and it is teaching us both how these animals relate to each other. Who would have thought that little puppies would join their parents and learn how to guard sheep at such a young age?! Who would have thought that puppies and lambs could play together? And that the sheep actually look after the puppies and that the adult dogs actually help "babysit" when a sheep has too many young to handle? The pictures tell the story even if you can't read the words yet. I saw my son "reading" the book again on his own today and then we read it again tonight. He has asked a lot of questions about the photos. My son loves this book and so do I which is why we have decided to purchase one to keep. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have!
