Can Swedish Lapphunds Be Guard Dogs?

Training a Swedish Lapphund To Be a Watch Dog
A watch dog simply alerts their owner to someone coming close to their home. Even though your pet dog isn't a police canine, most barking dogs will deter an intruder even if they aren't big. Most guard dogs also make wonderful 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, 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 outstanding watch dogs.
3. Rottweiler - The Rottweiler is a big German guard dog breed that is deeply loyal to its family but wary of strangers. However, they are not a good choice for amateur dog owners.
4. German Shepherd - They are superb 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 strong dogs that are not well-suited for the beginner owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.
