Training a Belgian Shepherd Laekenois To Be a Watch Dog
A watch dog simply informs their owner to somebody approaching their house. Even if your pet dog isn't a police canine, most barking dogs will deter an intruder even if they aren't large. Most guard dogs also make wonderful 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 very observant of their surroundings and will alert their owners to any novel activity in no time. Due to this, they make exceptional watch dogs.
3. Rottweiler - The Rottweiler is a large German guard dog breed that is greatly loyal to its family but wary of strangers. Although, they are not a great choice for novice pet dog owners.
4. German Shepherd - They are excellent guard dogs that will notify their owners of any strangers just a little too close to their homes.
5. Akita - They will quickly alarm their owners to any unusual activity. They are powerful dogs that are not well-suited for the rookie owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.
