He has a very fearsome sounding bark, but in truth is a big baby - he treats my cat as his master ever since she taught him a hard lesson about not being too friendly.

A woman who owns a great pyranees told me that they have a tendency to roam if they don't have clearly defined (fenced) boundaries. Another way to let them know their home turf, she told me, is to take the puppy on a daily walk around the perimeter of the area they are protecting. I'm assuming anatolians could be similar? They like having a herd to protect, they aren't going to take off on some mission in the bush and leave their responsibilities at home.
A fence is certainly important. I wouldn't say pyrs and anatolians roam, but rather are expanding their territory. Mollison's "the map is not the territory" fits them well.
