Give it a herding job
This breed requires a great deal of space and lots of exercise. It needs to have a job, especially herding (this is their primary purpose).
They are also very protective, especially when it comes to their territory and food. I would only suggest this breed to an experienced dog handler, as it is very difficult to gain and maintain a dominant position with such a large,stubborn breed.

A dog that always has your back
They are very calm, playful, and easily trainable. If not properly trained or socialized, they may be very dangerous to those outside their family.
These dogs make excellent guard dogs and absolutely love children. However, small children should be supervised when playing with them. Being so massive, they can hurt the child involuntarily.
Please consider the time you have for them. They are satisfied being by themselves only if they have very large areas to patrol. Otherwise, they need a lot of attention and exercise.
They never back down in front of an attacker. I have experienced this firsthand meeting a bear in the Carpathian mountains. They will have your back at the cost of their own life.
