Training a Chorkie To Be a Watch Dog
A watch dog just simply alerts their owner to somebody coming close to their property. Even when your pet dog isn't a police canine, most barking dogs will discourage an intruder even if they aren't big. Most guard dogs also make wonderful watch dogs, but not all watch dogs make great 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 quite observant of their environments and will alert their owners to any novel activity in no time. Due to this, they make outstanding watch dogs.
3. Rottweiler - The Rottweiler is a huge German guard dog breed that is deeply loyal to its family but wary of strangers. However, they are not a great choice for novice dog owners.
4. German Shepherd - They are outstanding guard dogs that will notify their owners of any strangers just a little too close to their homes.
5. Akita - They will quickly signal their owners to any unusual activity. They are strong dogs that are not well-suited for the beginner owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.
