According to Allen's blog, Home Alarm Monitoring.org, the #1 way to protect your home and family is to have a home alarm system installed . The #2 way is to have a dog. With that in mind, following is a list of the top ten breeds when considering owning a dog for their guard dog capabilities.
The fact that most of these breeds are sweet, loving, loyal, and gentle as pets, makes them even more valuable. In other words, don't let their size or appearance make you shy away from them as companions for your family. As is always the case, do your research. Find the breed that fits you, your family, and your family's needs and you will have the most wonderful friend for life.
