Training an English Foxhound To Be a Watch Dog
A watch dog merely notifies their owner to somebody coming close to their house. Even when your dog isn't a police dog, 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 quite watchful of their surroundings and will alarm their owners to any novel activity in no time. Because of 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. However, 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 signal their owners to any unusual activity. They are powerful dogs that are not well-suited for the novice owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.
