Can Japanese Chins Be Guard Dogs?
Wanting to adopt a Japanese Chin puppy and want to know whether a Japanese Chin can be a good watch dog or if Japanese Chin Dogs are protective of their owners?
According to dog trainers, Japanese Chin 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 Japanese Chin To Be a Watch Dog
A watch dog simply notifies their owner to somebody approaching their property. Even when your pet dog isn't a police dog, most barking dogs will discourage an intruder even if they aren't large. Most guard dogs also make great watch dogs, but not all watch dogs make great guard dogs.
Top 5 Best Guard Dogs
2. Cairn Terrier - Although little, the Cairn Terrier is mighty. They are strong-willed, fiery little terriers that are very watchful of their environments and will alarm their owners to any novel activity in no time. Because of 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. However, they are not a good choice for rookie 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 alert their owners to any unusual activity. They are strong dogs that are not well-suited for the amateur owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.
Japanese Chin Information
The Japanese Chin is a devoted companion, relishing a warm lap as much as a boisterous game. It is sensitive and willing to please, tending to shadow its owner. It is a friend to all: strangers, dogs and pets. Its playfulness and gentleness make it a good child's companion for equally gentle children. The breed has been described as almost catlike — some even climb.
