What is the Kangal breed?

The Kangal Dog is a native Turkish livestock guardian breed, and in Turkey this historic breed goes by no other name. It is registered in the USA by the United Kennel Club (UKC), a respected registry for over 100 years, whose focus is on the "Total Dog."

The Kangal Dog Club of America (KDCA) is the National UKC Breed Club for the Kangal Dog.
