Don’t be afraid of livestock guardian dogs


Don’t be afraid of livestock guardian dogs

Due to the growing wolf population in the Engadin, more and more flocks of sheep are guarded by livestock guardian dogs.

How do we behave if we come across a herd accompanied by livestock guardian dogs during our hike? And what do we do if we are out and about with a dog ourselves? The people responsible for the Engadin sheep alp Val Gianduns in S-chanf provide information on site about the behavior of these animals and show us how to ensure safe encounters with livestock guardian dogs in practice.
