Pia Wood

Breeder of Merit

Old Washoe Ranch

Washoe Valley, Nevada

When we started our farming adventure in 2014, we knew we needed to protect our investment in small animals with Livestock Guardian Dogs. After some research, we decided to try out the Armenian Gampr dog. Over the years, we have grown in love with this breed - there is simply no other breed of dog we will ever have again.


Our 26 acres are in the middle of a large predator zone in Washoe Valley. We have mountain lions, bears, & coyotes that often come through our neighbor's properties. But never, not once, have we ever lost an animal to a predator on our land. Our dogs do an incredible job of protection and never let up.

We have since selectively started breeding our dogs to share this amazing & rare breed with others. Most of our customers to date were originally just visitors to our farm, only to fall in love with our dogs and want one of their own! All of our puppies spend the first three months on the farm with us, get their starter vaccines, and learn from our pack.
