Top 5 Best Guard Dogs
2. Cairn Terrier - Although little, the Cairn Terrier is mighty. They are strong-willed, fiery little terriers that are quite observant of their environments and will alarm their owners to any novel activity in no time. Because of this, they make excellent watch dogs.
3. Rottweiler - The Rottweiler is a large German guard dog breed that is greatly loyal to its family but wary of strangers. However, they are not a good choice for amateur pet dog owners.
4. German Shepherd - They are terrific guard dogs that will notify their owners of any strangers just a little too close to their homes.
5. Akita - They will quickly signal 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.
