Guard Llama – The Animal
Did you know that the definition of a Guard Llama is described in Wikipedia as “A llama, guanaco, alpaca or hybrid that is used in farming to protect sheep, goats, hens or other livestock from coyotes, dogs, foxes, and other predators? Llamas have a calm temperament and do not generally pose a threat to humans. They may appear less threatening to your neighbors or farm visitors than a large dog. Llamas do have to be socialized with people or adult llamas can become dangerous. They also do not actively challenge fencing which is a strong benefit many believe. Wow, we didn’t even know a thing like this existed!
Guard Llama – The Company
To make things even more interesting for Guard Llama’s all over the world in 2017 a personal security device company was featured on Shark Tank looking for investments. Guard Llama from their Twitter feed was a personal security device that dispatches the police to your exact GPS location with the push of a button. By the end of the pitch, they did get an investment offer at the time from Barbara Corcoran. In 2019 one of the original partners ran into legal issues. Ultimately the Shark Tank deal fell through. As of 2021 the Better Business Bureau lists the company Guard Llama as “Believed to be out of business”. Many customers had previously complained that they were unable to cancel their service.
