I have pure anatolians and will never have another breed. My dogs protect my livestock and when people come over they bark a warning but as soon as I say it's okay they relax. This is how this breed should behave if you have the respect of your dog they trust you when you tell them a person is not a threat. When my dogs go out with me they are very friendly and love meeting people, they draw a crowd where ever we go and they love it. I trust them and they trust and respect me. If I'm not home and you come on my property the dogs will warn you off with barking if you listen and back off you will have no problem if you don't, well you were warned. I've had meter readers and ups guys ignore my beware of dog signs but none of them got bit because when my dogs asked them to leave they did.
