Thirty years after the return of grey wolves (Canis lupus) to the French Alps, the number of livestock losses is on the rise despite livestock guarding dogs (LGDs) being widely used. Their relevance is, therefore, questioned by some sheep owner associations. To date, no study has investigated how LGDs interact with wolves in pastures. We present th...

Exchanging experience and finding solutions to problems facing the use of livestock guarding dogs (LGDs) in modern societies were among the goals of a meeting organized in Portugal from 20th to 21st October 2015 within the scope of the LIFE MedWolf Project (www.medwolf.eu). The meeting was attended by 16 specialists from around Europe (Portugal, Sp...

Conflicts between wildlife and humans are of global importance and are increasing. These conflicts may negatively impact wildlife, humans, and other resources, primarily livestock. Human safety and economic well-being can be adversely impacted by depredation of livestock and perpetuation of wildlife-borne diseases in agricultural systems. Conversel...

The wolf’s return to the Alps has led to dramatic changes in shepherding. Despite the extensive use of livestock guardian dogs (LGDs), depredation is increasing in some areas. In 2013, we began a research project on internal and external factors that can influence effectiveness of LGDs on pastoral units (PUs). We observed night-time interactions be...
Data
Background Livestock guarding dogs (LGDs) are one of the most representative working dogs, but few studies have been conducted on them, especially on the interactions with predators and their effect on them. LGDs do not completely prevent losses from wolves and do not avoid them coming back, suggesting that no long-term avoidance learning occurs. T...

Dogs have been employed to protect an array of resources from various species of offending wildlife. Historically, livestock protection dogs (LPDs) protected domestic sheep and goats from predators based on development of a strong bond between protected and protector. Within reason, developing that bond between a LPD and other species of livestock...

Europe and North America share a similar history in the extirpation and subsequent recovery of large carnivore and ungulate species. Both continents face challenges and opportunities for managing human-wildlife conflict at the junction of livestock production and wildlife conservation. Predation of livestock and disease transmission between wildlif...
Conference Paper

S'il est encore difficile de proposer une date précise sur l'origine du chien, les recherches en biologie moléculaire et en archéozoologie semblent s'accorder pour placer sa domestication durant le Paléolithique supérieur, bien que certains auteurs annoncent une origine plus ancienne. En revanche, ces recherches ne permettent pas d'expliquer quels...
