TOP 5 GUARD DOGS & HOW TO TRAIN THEM

When I was a kid, we've had about 11 huge dogs at home, and 40% of them were guard dogs. I know, it really IS a scary place to invade.. But guard dogs aren't just for protection- they make great companions- best friends, even.
Before, we had 1 rottweiler, 2 german sheperds, and a couple few I forgot (sorry). Bottom line is that our home was really protected, along with the tall gate that comes with the whole security issue. Moving on.. I will enumerate the TOP 5 guard dogs which are highly recommended for those who could afford it, because great dogs like these come with a bigger price that the usual dogs. Without further chit-chat, here they are:

5. GIANT SCHNAUZER


The Giant Schnauzer is a large, powerful, and compact breed of dog. It is one of the three Schnauzer breeds. Like most large breeds, the Giant Schnauzer needs a fair amount of exercise.

4. AKITA


The Akita is a strong, independent and dominant breed, commonly aloof with strangers but affectionate with family members. They are known to compete in many dog competition sports, yet some are known to be intolerant of other dogs and require a knowledgeable and firm handler

3. GERMAN SHEPHERD


As part of the Herding Group, the German Shepherd is a working dog developed originally for herding and guarding sheep. Because of its strength, intelligence and abilities in obedience training it is often employed in police and military roles around the world.

2. DOBERMAN PINSCHER


In many countries, Doberman Pinschers are one of the most recognizable breeds, in part because of their actual roles in society, and in part because of media attention. Careful breeding has improved the disposition of this breed, and the modern Doberman Pinscher is an energetic and lively breed suitable for companionship and family life, along with great security and protection.

1. ROTTWEILER (MY TOP PICK/FAVORITE!!)


The Rottweiler was employed in its traditional roles until the mid-19th century when railways replaced droving for getting livestock to market. While still used in herding, Rottweilers are now also used in search and rescue, as guide dogs for the blind, as guard or police dogs, and in other roles.

So, which guard dog do you prefer? Is it from the TOP 5 I have given, or is it from your own choice? Come on, let me know! :)
