All Dog Breeds >>Appearance of Anatolian Shepherd
Instinctively protective, the Anatolian is a calm, reserved breed around strangers, showing his loyal and loving nature only to his family. He enjoys children, but should be supervised around them in case he interprets rough play as a need to guard "his" child. Because he was bred to make independent decisions while working, owner commands may not be followed to the letter, but the Anatolian is trainable. Regular exercise and grooming is necessary.
Anatolian Shepherd Training
The Anatolian Shepherd Dog is harder to train than most other dog breeds. He learns new commands more slowly than the majority of other breeds. You will need to be extra patient when Training him.
Anatolian Shepherd Shedding

Anatolian Shepherd Grooming
