Can Havaneses Be Guard Dogs?
Wanting to adopt a Havanese puppy and need to know whether a Havanese can be a good watch dog or if Havanese Dogs are protective of their owners?
According to dog trainers, Havanese 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 Havanese To Be a Watch Dog
A watch dog simply informs their owner to someone coming close to their house. Even when your dog isn't a police canine, most barking dogs will discourage an intruder even if they aren't large. Most guard dogs also make fantastic 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 mighty. They are strong-willed, fiery little terriers that are very watchful of their settings and will notify their owners to any novel activity in no time. Due to this, they make excellent watch dogs.
3. Rottweiler - The Rottweiler is a large German guard dog breed that is deeply loyal to its family but wary of strangers. However, they are not a good choice for beginner pet dog owners.
4. German Shepherd - They are outstanding guard dogs that will alert 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 novice owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.
Havanese have a quiet and gentle disposition, but enjoy rowdy play sessions. They are affectionate, preferring to be at their owner's side or in the same room, and will alert their owner to approaching strangers. They enjoy the company of other Havanese. They are intelligent, easy to train and attentive to their handler. Havanese have an alert, gentle expression produced by the combination of large dark eyes, dropped ears, long fur and an endearing habit of tilting their head when listening.
