CCF's Livestock Guarding Dog Program is considered one of the most successful conservation projects in regards to human / predator challenges, and currently involves 121 working dogs.
In 2008, CCF successfully bred and placed 42 Anatolian and Mongretolian (¾ Anatolian ¼ mongrel) puppies. Another pup, "Isha," has been placed at the CCF director's house as a pet and left intact for possible future breeding. She is also being trained to detect cheetah scat.
A highlight of the programme in 2008 was the placement of one male puppy in the Mara Conservancy in Kenya to live amongst the local Masai and guard their livestock. In addition, CCF received two new breeding dogs early in 2008, thanks to the SPOTS Foundation in Holland and two generous Turkish Kangal breeders.
