HomeSecurityGuru.com has recently published a Family Watchdog and Guard Dog Guide which provides details on different types of dogs and recommendations on the best breeds for various home security needs. The guide first explains the difference between watchdogs and guard dogs. There are distinct differences, strengths and weaknesses between the two and if a homeowner has decided to get a dog for home security purposes they must first decide which type of dog meets their needs best.
The guide outlines desirable characteristics for both guard dogs and watchdogs, as well as specific information for the breeds of dogs that inherently possess these characteristics.
Below are some the breeds included in the guide:
- Doberman Pinscher
- Giant Schnauzer
- Bull Mastiff
- German Shepherd
- American Staffordshire Terrier
- West Highland White Terrier
- Bouvier des Flandres
- Dogo Argentino
In addition to information on the various breeds, the guide also goes into detail on which dogs to avoid as watchdogs as well as how to care for your dog. Homeowners should keep in mind that the benefits of owning a dog also come with a number of responsibilities which need to be considered prior to making the commitment. It is also noted in the guide that a watchdog or guard dog is not a replacement for a home security system, explaining that they should be considered a part of a person's overall home security options.
