Dobermans are protective of their owners, and even just the presence of one in your home is likely to keep away creepy people. If your think your wife needs security, get a good alarm and surveillance system, and have her take self defense and firearms classes.

Having a dog trained in personal protection is extremely rare these days because of the huge legal trouble you may get into if something ever happens and you're likely to not be covered by insurance companies. A personal protection dog can not be a service dog too.
