· Just choosing the correct breed of dog will take care of a lot of your problems for you. Some breeds of dog are highly territorial and will guard their home with little training. I have a neighbor who owns a Rottweiler/Boxer cross, however, who will not even bark at anyone hanging around his house. Sometimes even breeds that guard normally need a little encouragement.
Even the smallest dog can serve as a guard dog to protect your home from burglars and other threats.

For centuries, people have used dogs to guard their homes when they are home or away. When you are looking for a dog to protect your home against intruders, you will need to decide whether a guard dog or deterrent dog works best for you. The primary difference between the two is that a deterrent dog will raise the alarm that someone is attempting to enter your home by barking while a guard dog has the physical size and strength to stop an intruder in their tracks. Guard Dog® Home & Away kit comes with a 3-in-1 keychain pepper spray and a 3 oz. pepper spray with a wall mount for home use.

No doubt, dogs are selfless guards. They are ready to protect you or your family from threats, even if that requires putting their own lives at great risk. So, if you have security concerns over your home or some other facility, then placing a dog on guard is a very smart move.If you have babies or very small kids at home, this nanny of a dog is for you. The Akita has a very huge appearance and strong protective instincts. Unlike most other guard dogs, it investigates quietly and doesn’t bark except things have gone seriously wrong. One major downside of the Akita is its tendency to be quite independent, a very bad one for a dog of its size. In addition, the dog needs regular training. Of course, this would require extra dedication and skill on your part.This dog is friendly with not only children, but also with other domestic animals. So, if you have got cats or other pets at home, the Newfoundland poses no threat to them. Otherwise called “”, Newfoundlands are very gentle, and they have a huge appearance that could threaten and knock down intruders. And they are very easy to train. Aside being friendly guards, Newfoundlands are very strong and can do heavy labor. You may not know this until they display their amazing strength when it comes in handy. Keep in mind that this dog has a thick coat that must be brushed regularly, and it needs regular exercise.My Rottweiler Capone was doing some Home Protection Alarm Test around the backyard, the Rottweiler breed is well know for their protection skills and is consider a guard dog. The Rottweiler will do anything to protect a member of the pack and that mean even if his life is on the line. Thank you for watching make sure to LIKE my video and don't forget to SUBSCRIBE.

Protect your home and family--and provide them with a loving friend-- by giving them the gift of a guard dog.

Step 1: Pick the right breed
Pick the right breed of dog. German shepherds and Doberman Pinschers make the best guard dogs due to their protective nature. However, even gentle dogs can be good guard dogs with the proper training.

Remember that guard dogs are a form of security, like an alarm, but they are not attack dogs.

Step 2: Socialize your dog
Socialize your dog before beginning guard-dog training. Socialization is the process of getting the dog used to loud noises, such as traffic and thunderstorms, and getting them to recognize family and friends. This way the dog will be able to discern between normal and threatening scenarios.

Step 3: Begin basic obedience training
Give your dog basic obedience training. Going to classes and teaching your dog to follow basic obedience rules will establish you as the leader.

Start your dog's training at an early age. This gives the dog a better chance to learn new things before developing bad habits.

Step 4: Practice positive reinforcement
Practice positive reinforcement. Reward your dog with treats for good behavior and ignore them completely when they behave badly.

Step 5: Identify property boundaries
Identify property boundaries to your dog during their guard-dog training. Train your dog to recognize your property as their territory. Use positive reinforcement to drive this point.

Step 6: Control barking
Control your dog's barking. Using positive reinforcement, train your dog to bark when someone comes on to your property and to stop barking when given a specific command.

Step 7: Be consistent
Be consistent. The most important thing to remember when training your dog is to be consistent with your commands and the way you say them. This will help your dog understand you better, and will improve the results of their guard-dog training.

Dogs have been man's best friend for an estimated 15,000 years, when Eurasian gray wolves were domesticated.A simply watches the home and alerts others to the intruder by barking. Watchdogs typically are smaller, more excitable breeds that will bark vigorously at the presence of an intruder or in most situations they experience as out of the ordinary. Many small and toy dog breeds, which would not qualify as guard dogs are excellent watch dogs, as their only duty is to alert their owners with their barking.
