For many people, a dog is not just a tamed animal, but a real friend. A representative of the Turkish Kangal breed can become such a friend. Such animals differ in some features that are not inherent in any other dog. So, for example, they have strong protective instincts and are also loyal to their master.
It was these huge, loyal, powerful dogs that were one of the first who began to serve faithfully to man, protecting homes, livestock, and the lives of family members from wild animals and from intruders.
The largest, most powerful, fearless dogs were used as producers. Breeders focused primarily on growth and watchdog ability.
