Q: Are your dogs aggressive towards people, like people they don't know, like me!?
A: Ours aren't, but some people have more aggressive guard dogs.
Q: How often do herders get groceries delivered? Do they get to pick what they want to eat? Do they change it up?
A: Groceries are delivered every 2 weeks, herders make their own list and anything goes as long as they don't eat better than I do. They usually don't change it up too much, grocery lists are very similar among weeks as well as camps.
Q: Where are your herders from?
