Watch Dogs

Dogs To Watch Over You

Dogs are great companions, but in todays day and age we may want our dog to be more than just our companion and friend. People are now letting their dogs house sit. Dogs are being taught to watch and guard their owners homes. Both watch dogs and guard dogs bark to alert their owner of an intruder. A watch dogs function ends with the barking to alert their master. A guard dog, on the other hand, is taught to bark and also to restrain or attack the intruder.

If you are interested in a guard dog you should obtain the services of  a professional dog trainer. Some good dog breeds for watch and guard dog activities are Doberman Pinscher, Rottweiler, and German Shepherd. There are many more, these are just a few examples.

Watch dogs are generally smaller dogs than guard dogs. Some smaller breeds such as the toy and miniature are great. These dogs tend to bark a lot, so they are very good for alerting their master that an intruder is present.

Guard dogs tend to be larger like the ones named earlier. The trainability of a dog should be the number one asset for a good guard dog. A dog that is intelligent and eager to learn will retain its natural protectiveness over what it designates as its territory when properly trained by its owner or handler.

Whether you choose a watch dog or a full-fledged guard dog, it is important to always assert your dominance as master of the home and teach your dog to respect family and friends. Your dog should never try to chase, restrain or bite a human being he or she deems threatening without a command from you. A good dog obedience trainer will teach you everything you need to know about these matters and others, so choose who you feel is the most experienced in your area.
