Tuesday Top Ten: Guard Dogs

Dogo Argentino

Loyalty. Intelligence.  Obedience.  These are the top qualities you will look for in a guard dog.  You don’t necessarily want a dog who will bark to alert you to intruders – that’s a watch dog.  Guard dogs, on the other hand, take care of the problem by taking down the intruder.  Early socialization is important because a guard dog must be able to distinguish between friendly people who just happen to be strangers, and those people who actually pose a threat to you and your family.

So, what are the top ten breeds to fulfill all of these requirements?

10.  Boxer

9.  Chow Chow

8.  Bullmastiff

7.  Dogo Argentino

6.  Akita

5.  Pit Bull

4.  Cane Corso

3.  Doberman

2.  Belgian Malinois

1.  German Shepherd Dog

Check out the complete list of guard dogs on our breed guides page.

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
