Training a Jagdterrier To Be a Watch Dog
A watch dog simply alarms their owner to someone approaching their property. Even when your pet dog isn't a police canine, most barking dogs will deter an intruder even if they aren't large. Most guard dogs also make terrific 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 very watchful of their surroundings and will alarm their owners to any novel activity in no time. Due to this, they make exceptional watch dogs.
3. Rottweiler - The Rottweiler is a large German guard dog breed that is deeply loyal to its family but wary of strangers. Although, they are not a great choice for amateur dog owners.
4. German Shepherd - They are fantastic 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 uncommon activity. They are strong dogs that are not well-suited for the amateur owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.
This terrier breed is a clever hunter, unrelenting, tough, and robust. The Jagdterrier is unafraid of the most formidable wild game and very intent in the pursuit of such game. The breed is highly intelligent and affable with its master and other hunters. Considering its determination to work, and its combustible energy, the breed should not be selected strictly as a pet, though they are totally people friendly. Dash, gameness and pluck are all descriptive of a properly bred Jagdterrier. The Jagdterrier, bred solely by hunters over its existence, has maintained the fearless characteristics of early day den terriers.
