Can Standard Schnauzers Be Guard Dogs?
Wanting to own a Standard Schnauzer puppy and need to know whether a Standard Schnauzer can be a good watch dog or if Standard Schnauzer Dogs are protective of their owners?
According to pet trainers, Standard Schnauzer 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 Standard Schnauzer To Be a Watch Dog
A watch dog simply notifies their owner to someone approaching their property. Even when your pet dog isn't a police canine, most barking dogs will discourage an intruder even if they aren't large. Most guard dogs also make excellent 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 intense. They are strong-willed, feisty little terriers that are very watchful of their surroundings and will alert their owners to any novel activity in no time. Because of this, they make excellent watch dogs.
3. Rottweiler - The Rottweiler is a huge German guard dog breed that is greatly loyal to its family but wary of strangers. However, they are not a great choice for amateur canine owners.
4. German Shepherd - They are great guard dogs that will alert 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 strong dogs that are not well-suited for the inexperienced owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.
