Encounters with livestock guarding dogs in tourism areas

Celia the shepherdess guides her 400 sheep and goats, as well as 6 Cane di Pastore Maremmano Abruzzese livestock guarding dogs and her 3 herding dogs to graze around the ski slopes around the lift stations and the Bergrestaurant K2 above Sulden. The K2 is a very popular and easy to get to destination for tourists.

Despite this, we would ask you to always treat the dogs with respect.

  • Keep your own dogs on a leash.
  • Stay calm if the dogs approach you.
  • As a general rule, do not pet the dogs.
  • Never feed the dogs or sheep.
  • Go around the flock without disrupting the animals.
  • Thank you! The shepherds and shepherdesses
