A watchdog, also known as guard dog, is used to guard against and watch for unwanted or unexpected people or animal. The dog is discriminating?? so that it does not annoy or attack familiar people.
Both guard dogs and watch dogs bark loudly to alert their owners of an intruder’s presence and scare away the intruder. The watch dog’s function ends here; whereas a guard dog is capable of attacking or restraining the intruder. For example, a German Shepherd is often large and strong enough to attack an drive away livestock predators such as wolves. Some breeds such as Thai Ridgeback are an excellent watchdog but not in guard dog. This is because they bark loudly to alert their masters of intruders but are given to assertive behavior.??
The following pedigree breeds are the best as watchdog:
- German Shepherd
- Giant Schnauzer
- Belgian Shepherd
If the risk is from human intruders, a suitable dog can be simply trained to be aggressive towards unrecognized humans and then tethered or enclosed unsupervised in an area the owner wishes to protect when he is not around (such as night time) the stereotypical junkyard dog is a common example of this??. Other guard dogs intended for police or more supervised work are trained to bite and guard.
