Temperament of the Dog

The Anatolian Shepherd Dog is affectionate with his own family but suspicious of strangers who must be formally introduced to the dog so that he will accept them.
He is very, very loyal and possessive of his home and family (as if they were his sheep). He tends to bark at night to warn predators away unless he is inside. He can be a very fierce fighter if he needs to be.

Full socialization as a puppy is a must; obedience training is an absolute necessity. It is recommended you do not add any guard training to this dog since he is naturally a fierce protector. Early and consistent dominant leadership is necessary with an Anatolian Shepherd.

The Anatolian Shepherd is not a dog for beginners as he is stubborn and dominant and must be trained firmly and consistently starting at a very early age. He needs a good and strong trainer.

Anatolian Shepherd Dogs need a large, secure yard, including a 5-6 foot fence and locked gate. They are very suspicious of strangers. Anatolians bark at night if left outside. Many of them are diggers.

Better suited to an indoor or outdoor lifestyle?

He likes to guard his territory and family, so being outside is fine with him. He tends to bark at night, so he needs to be put inside unless he is actually guarding livestock.

Are they suited to homes with kids?

Sensitive to corrections and eager to receive affection, Anatolians are patient and protective with children of the family, but may accidentally knock them down. Children should always be supervised and properly introduced.

Health and Care

Genetic Problems

The genetic issues are dependent upon the lineage of the dog, so ask questions of the breeder. Some are prone to eyelid entropion, hypothyroidism, or hip dysplasia.
Anatolians are very sensitive to anesthesia.

Immunity in Anatolians is slow to develop, so extra vaccinations against things like parvovirus are often necessary. Have the immunity tested after the recommended vaccinations to assess the need for more.
