Looking for a great guard dog? Someone to protect your home, family or property and watch for unfamiliar people or animals? Please do not confuse a guard dog with an attack dog, because a guard dog knows not to attack familiar people. He/she is not vicious.
Certain breeds are prone to be better guard dogs than others as a result of their genetics, training and socialization. The purpose of a guard dog is to bark loudly to get their pet parents’ attention and scare away the intruder or predator. According to the American Kennel Club, guard dogs tend to be “loyal, fearless strong and watchful.”
