Protection Dog Breeds

Most dogs, once established in their household, will exhibit some form of protective behavior, yet there are specific protection dog breeds that have been created solely for the purpose of guarding territories and people.

Protective dog breeds are different from a typical watchdog, as they do not merely alert their owners of a possible intruder with their barking; these dogs are trained to alert and prevent a break-in or attack from occurring. Some of the most common protection dog breeds are the Rottweiler, Doberman, American Pit Bull Terrier, and the German Shepherd.

The Rottweiler is a very intelligent and easily trainable breed that needs structure to avoid unwanted aggression. Dobermans go to great lengths to please their owners and are very loyal. It is recommended that these dogs be socialized early. Pit Bulls are often a very intimidating breed that has been linked to many attacks, yet owners of these dogs swear they are an excellent breed that if trained properly and not put in abusive households, are wonderful around children and make wonderful companions. Finally, the German Shepherd is a highly recognized breed in law enforcement, giving it the familiarity of a protective breed. There are several other large breed dogs that could act as a protection dog, yet might not be as easily recognized as a threat to an intruder as the breeds above.
