- Livestock Guardian Dogs are an effective and proven, non-lethal method of direct and indirect predator deterrent.
- Deterring predators, results in fewer livestock losses.
- Fewer losses means that herds can be kept smaller as more are likely to survive.
- Fewer livestock, especially fewer goats, increase carrying capacity for grasslands and therefore increase wild grazing populations that are the natural prey for area predators.
- Fewer livestock losses also result in less retribution killings and less indiscriminate trapping and poisoning of endangered apex predators such as Snow Leopards, Gobi Bears and Wolves.
Smaller herds result in less competition for spring grass, and less over-grazing. This enhances the ability of grasslands to recover with stronger root systems, which in turn reduces erosion and slows the desertification process.
