When it comes to protecting your home there are several types of dogs for the job. Some are alert barkers, meaning they will let you know anytime anything moves outside your home that is “not supposed to be there,” or when someone knocks at the door, rings your bell, etc. (Shetland sheepdogs excel at this!) Then there are guardian dogs. These breeds will not only let you know there is someone around, they would do something about it. This list mentions the 10 breeds that take guarding your home seriously.
1. Giant Schnauzer
The Giant Schnauzer is not only intimating due to its size, but they have a menacing bark and fierce bite. I have known owners of these dogs that could not have company over because they were over protective and under socialized.
