I read recently on another forum that the only thing that will keep coyotes at bay is a GP. What is a GP?

      Green Party. Coyotes hate idealists.

        That might be the initials for the big dog known for guard duty - can't think of it's name.

            I would say Great Pyrenees because my buddy runs several of them with his sheep to keep the coyotes out of his sheep and it works.

              I have a sheep-rancher friend back in Texas who keeps a donkey with his sheep for protection. I don't know how that works, but he tells me it does.

                Knew a guy who had a couple hundred Boer goats. He ran GP with them. Even HE had to feed the dogs out of his truck. He had to separate the dogs out to work the goats! LOL!
                They are beautiful, loving dogs. My wife rescued two. The last died about 2 years ago.

                Does anybody know the trait sought after in the Great Pyrenees breed?

                  I would say it is a great Pyrenees. Bubba, would it be a horse bark? Almost quiet? So as not to scare the sheep?

                    99,
                    Actually donkeys work very well as protection against coyotes. But beware that donkeys sometimes bite the heads off goat kids and lambs. When I was a kid we had a very protective horse that killed a few things by stomping them, including a snake.

                    To answer the question it stands for Great Pyrenees. If you raise GPs with a herd of goats they think they are a goat, and become very protective of the herd.

                      P-h-w

                      I've witnessed our dog walking along slowly, muzzle to the ground and softly barking. Woof, woof, woof! She would do it several times then stop and look around. Always the three "woof" sequence.

                      Actually, the trait is double dew claws. Most show dogs have had their dew claws removed.

                        M.A.T, you're correct about donkeys working well but there is another guard animal that protects against coyotes that nobody mention yet.

                        This animal is instinctively alert and aware of their surroundings, and may draw attention to an intruder by making a startling alarm call that sounds like a rusty hinge. They may walk or run toward an intruder and chase, paw at, or kick it.

                        This guard animal has been known to kill predators (such as coyotes).
                        Watch this short video link below and see this animal in action while protecting the sheep herd and defending off a coyote.

                          I always found a Basque sheep herder, a 30 30 and a couple cases of cheap wine worked fine. Oh, wait, a border collie to run the show. The wine kept the herder in camp. Those were the days you could run sheep on BLM land.

                            Gary Devine, interesting animal. I would never have thought of using one of those.

                              Llamas work well, I didn't watch the video but would assume that's what's in it. I know a lady back in Maine who used a llama to protect her horses from coyotes. Although it worked, I dont know of a horse attacked by a coyote yet.
