10 Best Watchdog Breeds To Consider


Best Watchdog Breeds

Even the most cuddly dog can, by nature, be considered a good watchdog. You see, some breeds inherently bark and make noise when they feel threatened or suspicious about something. A watchdog is great to have to help protect your house and alert you if, say, an intruder was trying to get into your home. If you’re thinking of what breed would be the best watchdog, keep reading…

First, it’s important to know the difference between a watchdog and a guard dog, is that a watchdog will typically not engage in a threat. That means they will not bite or attack, but rather just let out a warning with their bark.

Truth be told, whether you want one or not, you may end up with a watchdog because that’s just how certain breed interacts. For example, I have a hound/pitbull mix and he barks and barks when the doorbell rings or he hears something, but he definitely would just pee out of excitement and jump on a person.

So, if you’re looking for an almost guarantee way to keep your home safe, you may want to get a watchdog. Again, these breeds shouldn’t cause any harm to their threats, however, every dog is different.
