Guard dogs are a popular choice for animal lovers looking to add some
additional security. While a dog may not completely replace the benefits
of a home security system, a good trained guard dog can keep the house
and family safe.
Some dogs which are often chosen for this role include Doberman
Pinchers, Bull Mastiffs, Rottweilers, and German Shepherds. The reason
these breads are chosen is because they have built-in territorial
instincts. Their size and deep barks also make a great burglar
Training Guard Dogs
Since guard dogs are potentially dangerous animals, they need special
training to insure family safety. Breeds that make the best guard dogs
can also be aggressive. Therefore, guard dogs should always be
professionally trained. Ultimately, you want an animal that can be
easily controlled, yet is territorial about your property.
It's important to remember that owning a trained guard dog is just like
having a loaded weapon. Picking the right breed for the family and
property size as well as training go beyond the scope of this book. If
considering a guard dog please obtain professional advice.
