acamper, let me share a link with you on training Kangals. It can be done, but again they are not 'push button' dogs like a German Shepherd or border collie. The pay off? Well they are a highly sensitive, devoted breed, intensely so. They'd give their life to protect you. As a personal guardian, the breed is hard to beat. I raise mine for work as LGD's, and have raised two litters of half Kangal pups (the other half was 1/4 maremma, 1/4 anatolian) and they all came out with predominately Kangal traits/looks/personality, with added sweetness of the Maremma.
Here is the link:
And best of luck to you in your search for the right dog!
