Can Schipperkes Be Guard Dogs?
Thinking to get a Schipperke puppy and need to know whether a Schipperke can be a good watch dog or if Schipperke Dogs are protective of their owners?
According to our chart, Schipperke Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of breeds that are considered the best watch dogs.
This dog is not recommended to be a watchdog.
Training a Schipperke To Be a Watch Dog
A watch dog simply alarms their owner to someone approaching their house. Even though your pet dog isn't a police dog, most barking dogs will deter an intruder even if they aren't large. Most guard dogs also make fantastic 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 mighty. They are strong-willed, feisty little terriers that are quite watchful of their surroundings and will notify their owners to any novel activity in no time. Because of this, they make outstanding watch dogs.
3. Rottweiler - The Rottweiler is a huge German guard dog breed that is deeply loyal to its family but wary of strangers. However, they are not a great choice for rookie canine owners.
4. German Shepherd - They are superb guard dogs that will alert 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 powerful dogs that are not well-suited for the amateur owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.
The schipperke is a bold companion, even though it can be an independent and headstrong one. This little dynamo is happiest when busy, poking its nose into every cranny and ever on the lookout for adventure. It is reserved with strangers and an alert watchdog. It can make an amiable and pleasant house dog but needs daily exercise.
