Armenian Gampr Livestock Dog

The Armenian Gampr is a landrace livestock guardian dog (LGD). For thousands of years, Armenians have bred gamprs to succeed at this work. More so than some breeds of livestock guardian, the gampr requires a close bond with its human owner, and as a result of that bond, guards all that belongs to that owner. A proper gampr should be gentle, calm, and submissive around its livestock and family, while having the ability to be alert and defensive against all outside intruders. They are typically excellent with children. Like most LGDs, the gampr is slow to mature, and may not be fully reliable with all types of livestock until 2yrs of age. Please see our training page for more information on how to develop a successful working partnership with your gampr.

Gamprs are an extremely rare breed of Livestock Guardian Dog (LGD) from Armenia. They bond closely with their primary owners, and guard whatever belongs to them. They are a landrace, so there is significant variation within the breed, and they remain quite primitive and naturally vigorous in structure and temperament.

All will guard very effectively against animal predators, and many are also protective against unknown people outside the family. Their sweetness and gentleness with their own people and animals is incredible to witness.

Like all LGD breeds, they require secure fencing or an extremely large acreage to patrol, as they will naturally seek to expand their territory and keep predators as far back as possible. Puppies take a long time to mature, and some may not be fully reliable with livestock until 2 years of age.
