Kangal, one of the most well-known livestock guardian dogs in Turkey, mainly comes from the sub-province Kangal, located in Sivas; and found primarily on the plateaus and northern part of Central Anatolia to the Marmara region. A Kangal can chase a wolf for miles to repel the attack and neutralize it, a distinguishing characteristic of Kangals, known worldwide, and making them preferred for livestock protection. Kangals are vigilant, always alert, and possess high intelligence, courage, and power to secure the herd of livestock against predators. In addition, Kangals are family dogs due to their kind, tolerant attitudes towards children and their territorial nature. Kangals are intuitive and are suitable for working all day in the fields. They are not to be kept on a chain or work under the command of humans since they are free-spirited dogs.
