Can Bedlington Terriers Be Guard Dogs?
Thinking to get a Bedlington Terrier puppy and need to know whether a Bedlington Terrier can be a good guard dog or if Bedlington Terrier Dogs are protective of their owners?
According to dog trainers, Bedlington Terrier Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of breeds that are considered the best guard dogs.
This dog is not recommended to be a watchdog.
Training a Bedlington Terrier To Be a Watch Dog
A watch dog just simply notifies their owner to someone approaching their home. Even when your pet dog isn't a police canine, most barking dogs will discourage an intruder even if they aren't large. Most guard dogs also make terrific watch dogs, but not all watch dogs make good guard dogs.
Top 5 Best Guard Dogs
2. Cairn Terrier - Although little, the Cairn Terrier is intense. They are strong-willed, feisty little terriers that are really observant of their surroundings and will alarm their owners to any novel activity in no time. Due to this, they make excellent watch dogs.
3. Rottweiler - The Rottweiler is a large German guard dog breed that is deeply loyal to its family but wary of strangers. However, they are not a great choice for beginner pet dog owners.
4. German Shepherd - They are fantastic guard dogs that will notify their owners of any strangers just a little too close to their homes.
5. Akita - They will quickly notify their owners to any uncommon activity. They are powerful dogs that are not well-suited for the newbie owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.

It enjoys its creature comforts and is a fairly quiet house dog. Even though it will seldom initiate a fight, it will not allow itself to be intimidated by other dogs and can be a scrappy fighter when pushed. It will give chase to small animals outdoors, but it can usually coexist with them indoors.
