Best GUARD Dogs To PROTECT Your Home!

Hi everyone, it’s Chris! Welcome to World List. For people who want a dog who can provide
loving companionship and protect their home and family: Here are 8 of the best guard dog breeds in
the world! 8. BANDOG
The bandog is also known as the American Bandog Mastiff and has unknown origins, but is thought
to have emerged as a breed sometime between 1250 and 1300 and to derive from other types
of mastiffs. It’s not the type of dog that is typically
leashed or chained, but instead prefers to roam freely around the house and yard as it
goes about its duties protecting a property and its inhabitants. The bandog has a powerful and stocky build,
as well as strong limbs, a broad skull and muzzle, and upright ears. Like many dog breeds, the bandog has received
a bad reputation due to its imposing build, and is banned in certain places throughout
the world. Due to their large and imposing build, some
people find the bandog intimidating or misinterpret them as dangerous, despite their tendency
to be friendly to anyone who isn’t trying to harm their guardian or family. When it comes to most breeds of dog, no matter
how large or small, the most important thing for ensuring they’re not unnecessarily aggressive
is to raise them properly. A good guard dog is protective, but not vicious,
and understands when it’s appropriate to attack. Generally speaking, different breeds need
varying amounts of guidance. The bandog requires attentive and consistent
leadership and obedience training. 7. NEAPOLITAN MASTIFF
There are several mastiffs that could make this list, but when you see the Neapolitan
Mastiff, you’ll understand why this one made the cut. They’re experienced guard dogs that have been
a protectors of homes and of countries for a long time. In fact, Neapolitan mastiffs were used as
“war dogs” during the days of the Roman Empire, which is indicative of how far back the breed’s
history goes. Like most guard dogs, they’re independent
and loyal, with large builds. While they look intimidating, Neapolitan mastiffs
are known to be very kind to children, and have very sociable natures. With this breed, you’ll get the best of
both worlds in terms of a tough but friendly guard dog, as long as they’re trained properly
from a young age. Oh, and did you know? Fang from the Harry Potter films was a Neapolitan
Mastiff. No wonder Hagrid liked him so much. 6. BOERBOEL
The Boerboel is a very special guard dog that was bred in South Africa as the only dogs
to protect the homestead. Its origins are unknown, but it’s evident
that the Boerboel was bred to be lean, muscular, and strong. These dogs are known to be one of the most
powerful breeds in the world, and their “no-nonsense” personality has led them to do good jobs both
protecting people and places. When the owners of a South African diamond
mine realized they could use some extra protection, they bought and imported Boerboels to fill
the role. An adult Boerboel typically weighs between
150 and 200 pounds. The average height of an adult male is 24
to 27 inches, while females usually range between 22 and 25 inches. Despite its strength and large build, the
Boerboel is known for its gentle demeanor and makes a loving and attentive companion
that wants to spend time with its owner and to know it’s doing a good job. Furthermore, it loves being exercised, which
is a perfect bonding activity and demonstrates the breed’s physical capacity to fulfill
their guard dog duties. 5. ROTTWEILER
Based on its popularity, the Rottweiler is one of the best breeds of dog to have as both
a guard dog and a friend. Some people fear adult Rottweilers because
of their large size or because of their misconstrued reputation as aggressive. However, if you ask anyone who’s had a Rottweiler,
chances are, they’ll vouch for the breed’s likable nature. Rottweilers were originally bred as herding
dogs and to protect livestock from predators. Farmers noticed their loyalty and protective
nature, and eventually, the Rottweiler’s role transitioned to the home, and they’ve
been excellent guard dogs ever since. The Rottweiler’s physical appearance comes
in handy when it comes to discouraging potential home invaders or anyone else who may be thinking
about harming their family. Because of their usefulness as protectors,
law enforcement agencies often use Rottweiler’s in their K-9 task forces. Don’t the breed’s toughness dissuade you
from considering one as a pet, however, even if you aren’t necessarily looking for a
guard dog. Rottweilers are known for being loving, loyal,
and wanting to please their owner. If you give them the chance to adore you,
they will do so – you just have to let them be themselves and raise them the right way. These dogs are highly intelligent and trainable,
as long as you’re willing to make the investment of time and effort! As far as their protection skills go, the
American Kennel Club labeled them “World-Class Guardians”, which is high praise indeed. 4. TIBETAN MASTIFF
During its early days the Tibetan Mastiff was born and bred by Tibetan tribes, as well
as tribes in Nepal, Mongolia, China and India. The tribes wanted and needed a dog that would
look out for them in the harsh conditions of the Himalayan Mountains, and the Tibetan
Mastiff has fulfilled this role for millennia. It was actually their success in doing their
job that led to the Tibetan Mastiff being spread all over the world. They’ve even been used to protect royal palaces
from intruders – and to great effect. The loyalty of this breed is so absolute that
they have been documented taking on terrifying animals such as wolves, bears, and leopards
to keep their masters safe. The size of the Tibetan Mastiff fluctuates
depending on its fur and gender, but they typically grow to be, at minimum, 26 inches
tall, and have been known to reach a height of up to 3 feet at times. An average adult weighs up to 160 pounds. While the Tibetan Mastiff is big and heavy,
it’s also impressively agile, most likely because it was originally bred in the mountains
and had to move well through the snow. These dogs can be a bit stubborn and don’t
do well with traditional training, but if you play your cards right, the Tibetan Mastiff
will respect you, and protect you. Before adopting any dog, it’s a good idea
to research their training requirements, and this is especially important when it comes
to breeds known to have tricky temperaments. 3. GERMAN SHEPHERD
When it comes to famous dog breeds, the German Shepherd ranks near or at the top of the list,
and is not just known as a popular guard dog, but as a well-favored pet in general. German Shepherds are known for their undivided
loyalty to their master and family. They’re smart, courageous, and easy to train,
and are also known for their willingness to lay their life down for their owner if and
when that time comes. These traits have understandably earned the
German Shepherd a great deal of respect and praise. If you welcome a German Shepherd into your
home, it’s beneficial to get one while they’re young to ensure a strong connection. However, as many adopted shelter dogs have
proven, dogs of all ages can make great companions, and it’s never too late to develop a bond
with a canine. German Shepherds are intelligent dogs but
require a lot of guidance as puppies. They also need a lot of exercise in order
to keep them at their peak physical condition and in top-notch mental health. On average, the German Shepherd can be around
2 feet tall, and males can weigh up to 90 pounds. And with a potential 10 year life span, this
dog will keep you safe for a while. As always, it’s important to consider how
long your new friend is likely to live before you commit to dog ownership, so you’re prepared
to provide for them for as long as possible – ideally, for their entire life. 2. DOBERMAN PINSCHER
At first, you might think that the Doberman Pinscher is a dog type you might want to stay
away from, even if you’re looking for a good guard dog. This is because the Doberman Pinscher, much
like the Rottweiler and several other large dog breeds, has had its unfair turn in the
spotlight as an alleged “aggressive” breed. But the Doberman Pinscher is an ideal breed
for many and is known as a great guard dog. One of the biggest reasons Doberman Pinschers
are reliable guard dogs is their fearlessness nature. They know how to stand their ground and protect
their owners. And it’s not just bravado – their bodies are
made for this kind of work. Doberman Pinschers are sleek yet muscular,
making them fast, agile, and strong. Their body type and shape allows them to move
easily, whether walking or running. Despite their reputation as aggressive dogs,
Doberman Pinschers are quite intelligent and are known to learn quickly and respond to
commands, and can form loving and affectionate relationships with their masters and family
members. They need a lot of exercise and are better
off when kept indoors with their owners, rather than left outside to their own devices. If you’re thinking about getting a Doberman
Pinscher, make sure you’re prepared to put the necessary effort into raising it to be
the great guard dog and companion it has the potential to be! 1. GREAT PYRENEES
The Great Pyrenees was bred specifically for protection. They have an inherent determination to ensure
the safety of their families and property. They were originally bred in Europe to protect
livestock – a task that reportedly requires little to no training and simply comes naturally
to the breed. The Great Pyrenees is highly intelligent. They can remember exactly how big their “home”
is, for example, and patrol it without command or instruction, ensuring that no unwelcome
invaders cross the perimeter. If you have two or more Pyrenees on a single
plot of land, they’ll work together like a security squad by branching off in different
directions and patroling separate parts of the land so that nothing gets by them. At a height of 32 inches and an average weight
around 120 pounds, this is one dog you’ll want in your pack. They also have great personalities and double
as faithful companions. They’re very calm and gentle to non-threatening
individuals, especially those they’ve formed connections with. Thanks for watching! If you have any stories about your beloved
guard dog, be sure to share it in the comments below! While you’re at it, don’t forget to subscribe

    If you're a home owner check with your Insurance policy and check the list because, owning most listed here will increase the cost.

    You have some good choices on here, but, you missed the pit bull. My Dad has a red-nosed female, and she is the best protector (outside of the German Shepard). I had to keep her at my house while my Dad was in the hospital, and my brother came over. She knows him, but here at my house, he reached out like he was going to touch me, and she went crazy. I also have two young boys here, and she would attack a fly if it tried to touch one of my boys. She is a beautiful and loving dog. Pits are only aggressive if they are trained that way or if they feel threatened. People have such a bad outlook on them, but they really are not that bad. I love all dogs (especially mutts), but my favorites are German Shepards, Pit Bulls, and Chows.

    My dog is a pitbull she is the best

  5. Lizzy Peer says:

    I totally agree with the Rottie. My brother in law's Rottie, Storm, was such a protector. He was half Rottie and half German Shepherd, which made him such a perfect dog, despite having to use jumpy cords to make sure he couldn't houdini himself out of the backyard. He was so intelligent. If anyone broke in, we know that Storm would be on them in seconds. Yet, when the first pit bull was brought him when he was abandoned at 5 weeks, Storm was gentle and caring like I was told that he was the same when my sister's black lab cross Destiny was a puppy.

    Half your list are mastiffs, which one would if been enough. I'm a gsd owner and lover, and as a overall guard dog family and extremely smart dog , the German shepherd is 2nd to none. That's obvious if you open your eyes. You left out many great dogs, especially the pit bull. These were the golden retrievers of there day. Amazing family dogs and highly protective of there families. IF YOU CANT KEEP YOUR DOG IN YOUR HOME. DON'T GET ONE!

And she loves to play with stuffed racoons and squirrels! She stays up all night and barks at anyone who comes in the door. Even my mom! But sometimes, if shes grumpy enough, she'll growl at me to stop petting her. But I still love her no matter what!
