Training a Russian Toy To Be a Watch Dog
A watch dog basically alarms 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 big. 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, feisty little terriers that are quite watchful of their surroundings and will alarm their owners to any novel activity in no time. Due to this, they make excellent watch dogs.
3. Rottweiler - The Rottweiler is a huge German guard dog breed that is deeply loyal to its family but wary of strangers. Although, they are not a good choice for beginner canine owners.
4. German Shepherd - They are fantastic guard dogs that will notify their owners of any strangers just a little too close to their homes.
5. Akita - They will quickly notify their owners to any unusual activity. They are powerful dogs that are not well-suited for the amateur owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.
