The Anatolian was developed to be independent and forceful, responsible for guarding
its master's flocks without human assistance or direction. These traits make it
challenging as a pet; owners of dogs of this breed must socialize the dogs to turn them
into appropriate companions. They are intelligent and can learn quickly but might
choose not to obey. According to Turkish shepherds, three Anatolian Shepherd Dogs
are capable of overcoming a pack of wolves and injuring one or two of them. These dogs
like to roam, as they were bred to travel with their herd and to leave the herd to go hunt
for predators before the predators could attack the flock. Therefore it is recommended
to micro-chip and tag pets. This breed is not recommended for living in small quarters.
They do well with other animals, including cats if they are introduced while still a puppy
and have their own space. They are very loving and loyal animals who do well with
children. They mature between 18–30 months. Both puppies and adults seem to have
little interest in fetching or chewing. Rather, they prefer to run and sometimes swim.
