I'm Jan Dohner and I'm happy to be here. We live in a small organic farm in Michigan, where we garden, raise fruit, keep bees, and Shetland sheep - all guarded by our livestock guardians, Kangal Dogs Fistik and Sabir.

I'm also the author of Livestock Guardians; Using Dogs, Donkeys and Llamas to Protect Your Herd (Storey Publishing) and The Encyclopedia of Endangered and Historic Livestock and Poultry Breeds (Yale). I also blog for Mother Earth News on the topic of livestock guardians.
