I believe, thought I am far from and expert, they are at least partly the same breed? A friend of mine was telling me about his dog, an Akbash, and it sounded so familiar I looked it up in an old dog book. No Akbash listed, but the dog I remembered was, an Anatolian Sheperd. Googled it a while ago, and they may be the same dog. Further research required. The Akbash, Anatolian, Kangal (Karabash) is a big controversy. I own an Akbash or Akbash type Anatolian if you are in that school. I think the Akbash and Anatolian have different confirmation in addition to the unique color of the Akbash. Also, I believe the Akbash is a more fleet footed animal. They are very fast and athletic. As to strength, I cannot say. I believe this would be more a degree of tempermant and socialization so it is not a fair question. Both are very beautiful animals and I would suggest you learn about them firsthand. My Akbash spends most of his time laying at my feet or guarding the gate and keeping an eye on things and you would think he is a doormat until you come in uninvited and then you will think again.

Both the Akbash and Kangal dog breeds from Turkey are livestock guardian dogs. Both breeds can be fearsome animals, but are not fearsome animals if treated properly. The Akbash is the stronger breed. Personal experience: I have 4 Akbash dogs (two males two females) and they are truly the best a man can have . One does not train this breed, but allows it to find its own place within the family. This breed is completely independent and suffers no fools. They will not leave the property or try to escape if it has a job guarding sheep, goats, chickens or other dogs. Do not think about this breed if you do not raise livestock . These dogs are dominant, but only fight to protect their charges. As far as strength, it can only be measured by the love and honor the dog feels towards you. If you are looking for a fighting dog, step away from livestock guardian dogs because if you don't allow this breed to be free, it will make your life so miserable you will wish you never had one.
