Historically  the country of origin of this breed is Turkey. KANGAL is one the oldest breed, ever existed in Asia Minor. These dog mostly used like  shepherds. Kangals perfectly protected  livestock and owner from wild animals. In our days they also, as before, perform their functions on pastures. Living in such conditions, the Kangals inherited good health and staying power, because they should work in different weather.  

  And now we want to tell more about Kangal's character. First of all they  

are clever, thinking and quick-witted dogs with a stable psyche. That's enough to watch their games and communication (for example, running around the building one after another, dogs calculate partner trajectory and meets him at the oncoming move). Kangal is very proud and freedom-loving dog, who won't  bring you repeatedly a ball or slippers on command. No, he will show his respect to the owner and do this command one or twice, but then just look in dog's eyes and You'll understand that there's no sense to continue this. Kangals a well-trained dog with whom you should communicate on equal terms. When you communicate with Kangal, he feels not the only intonation of the voice but also the mood with which the owner came home.  Dog perfectly understands the owner. At the same time Kangal is В тоже время кангал это watchful guard, which will not allow a stranger to invade the territory controlled by him, but at the same time he will not bark for no reason.

  The dogs of this breed do not single out one owner in the family (lack of dominance over the owners). All members of family have the same authority and it doesn't depend on age. Perhaps, should notice their extraordinary love to children, whom kangals , ready to forgive everything. 

 Taking part in dog shows, people very often are interested in dog's wool, wondering how pleasant is to touch this. And everything is simple. Kangal's wool can be called "self-cleaning". It means, that enough wool to dry and makes the impression that  the dog was washed.
