Livestock Guardian Dogs (Utility)
Pyrenean Mountain Dog and Tibetan Mastiff
As Livestock Guardian Dogs are split between the Utility Group and the Working Group in Australia. As explained in Livestock Guardian Dogs History, these dogs live and blend permanently with the flock of domestic animals whether they be sheep, goats, cattle or more recently domestic fowl. In this section although the Tibetan, Pyrenean and the Spanish Flock Guardian Dogs bear the name Mastiff, this is technically a misnomer as these three breeds were developed as Flock Guards and still work as such today.
