So what would be a good guard dog for my home ? I read everywere that dobermans are on the top 10 for guard dogs . Can sumone steer me towards what kind of dog I'm looking for then?
Around here its nothing but lil young kids going around stealing electronics and tv's I doubt they would hurt anyone or a dog. If it came to that it would buy my family some time, time to call the police and u know pull the gun . Young people will be scared of a dog. Everytime I try to get a dog I get lectured, I'm going to get one reguardless , I'm just looking for one that fits me best .
Its on the top 10 best guard dogs . Security system won't give me what a dog can . A dog is not going to be only a secruity system, its also guna exercise with me and drive around with me. The way u guys make it seem that their good for nothing.
I'll admit, Ididn't read through this whole thing. Probably just half of it so maybe what I"m about to say has been said.
First, any dog larger than a chihuahua that is barking will deter against petty theft. Sometimes small dogs will be a deterrent also. If your husky is a barker when people come around, then she will probably get the job done. However, somebody that is determined to get to your things will
take your dog down.
Second, you say that you're looking for a dog that fits you best but we don't actually know much about you. If we know nothing other than that you want "a guard dog" how can we, a community full of knowledgeable doberman owners, help you know if a doberman is a good choice for you?
Finally, the guard dog thing is commonly misinterpreted. The doberman is a breed designed by humans as a personal protector
. If somebody challenges you or tries to attack you a doberman will defend you. Please note that the common word here is "you" and that is because Dobermans were not bred to guard stuff but to guard their people.
I do hope you heed our advice and don't just buy a doberman from the first person who will sell you a puppy. Dobies are riddled with health problems and there are many less-than-stellar breeders out there who don't test their dogs for possible health issues. This usually leads to much shorter lifespans, a lot of money given to a vet, and so much heart break. We aren't lecturing you, attacking you, or trying to be nasty. We are just looking out for what's best for the breed and for possible future owners.
