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 alarm their owners to any unusual activity. They are powerful dogs that are not well-suited for the beginner owner, but are almost unparalleled in their loyalty to their owners.
