Anatolian Shepherd Kangal Dog Breeders
TAKAS Anatolian Shepherd Dogs | VOLKODAV Central Asian Shepherds
Takas Anatolian Shepherd Dogs & Volkodav Central Asian Shepherds grew from a lifelong fascination, love and immersion with the Anatolian Shepherd Dog of Turkey, and Central Asia Shepherd Dog. Native Anatolia & Central Asia Shepherd Dogs are not show dogs or family pets. By definition the latter negate the duty and character of the former. Yet a show dog can pique interest in the history of nomadic cultures that is the Anatolian Shepherd Dog & Central Asia Shepherd Dog; and the family guardian can foster pride in the duty and bravery of its Çoban Köpeği forebears and relatives. Takas Volkodav exists to share the unique qualities of Anatolian and Central Asia Shepherd Dogs; the stories of their lands and peoples, and to preserve the heritage of Anatolian Shepherd Dogs and Central Asia Shepherd Dogs working in their native environments.
