Training a Dandie Dinmont Terrier To Be a Watch Dog

Top 5 Best Guard Dogs
2. Cairn Terrier - Although small, the Cairn Terrier is intense. They are strong-willed, fiery little terriers that are quite observant of their surroundings and will alert their owners to any novel activity in no time. Due to this, they make excellent watch dogs.
3. Rottweiler - The Rottweiler is a big German guard dog breed that is deeply loyal to its family but wary of strangers. Although, they are not a great choice for amateur pet dog owners.
4. German Shepherd - They are superb guard dogs that will inform 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 beginner owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.
Dandie Dinmont Terrier Information
The Dandie Dinmont is no "dandified" dog; it is rough-and-tumble and ready for the hunt. Yet it functions well as a dignified house pet, affectionate but not doting. It is a loyal companion suitable for people of all ages, but it does need daily exercise to keep it from becoming frustrated. It is intelligent and very independent. It tends to be reserved with strangers and aggressive toward strange dogs. Some dig.
