Can Boykin Spaniels Be Guard Dogs?
Thinking to adopt a Boykin Spaniel puppy and wondering whether a Boykin Spaniel can be a good watch dog or if Boykin Spaniel Dogs are protective of their owners?
According to pet trainers, Boykin Spaniel 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 Boykin Spaniel To Be a Watch Dog
A watch dog just simply notifies their owner to somebody coming close to 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 great watch dogs, but not all watch dogs make good guard dogs.
Top 5 Best Guard Dogs
2. Cairn Terrier - Although small, the Cairn Terrier is intense. They are strong-willed, feisty little terriers that are really observant of their environments and will alert their owners to any novel activity in no time. Because of this, they make exceptional watch dogs.
3. Rottweiler - The Rottweiler is a huge German guard dog breed that is deeply loyal to its family but wary of strangers. Although, they are not a good choice for rookie pet dog owners.
4. German Shepherd - They are great guard dogs that will inform their owners of any strangers just a little too close to their homes.
5. Akita - They will quickly alert their owners to any unusual activity. They are strong dogs that are not well-suited for the amateur owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.
