The list is coming to an end and another Cold War dog is on top, do the RUSSIANS know something we don’t? At 1-A the CAUCASIAN OVCHARKA is one of the oldest GUARD DOG breeds listed, opposite its counterpart in Russia being the newest dog on the block. The ALABAI and CENTRAL ASIAN OVCHARKA are breeds similar to the OVCHARKA, and considered under the same ranking.
.

.

A breed native of the Caucasus mountains, it is one of the oldest molosser breeds sharing its heritage with many of the Soviet funded Red Star Kennel, a military based K9 facility. The breed was utilized in many of the new breed creations the famed kennel produced for military use during the Cold War.
.

.

Throughout my rankings I’ve touched on how important DEFENSIVE drives are for the construction of a great guard dog. The OVCHARKA is the epitome of what we call a DEFENSIVE monster. I read somewhere describing the breed, to get chased and bit by this breed is like getting hit by a 357 magnum. I don’t know what it feels like to be shot by a gun but I do know what it feels like being charged and bitten by this breed, and I’ll say you’ll probably not be alive to tell the story of how you got away.
.

.

.

The OVCHARKA is a true working dog thats comfortable as a family dog. Due to its untrusting nature, he should not be trusted around strangers. An extra large dog with some weighing as much as 150lbs with thick coats, the breed does well in colder climates but can acclimate to warmer weather. A experienced and firm handler should own this dog and training at an early age is highly advisable since the breed is very dominant. Although the breed is a loyal family member when raised socially, I wouldn’t advice young children without supervision.
.

.

Some defaults: as with all large breed, hips, shoulder and elbows are of concern. A relatively modest life span is to be expected (9 -11yrs) especially for a dog of this size.

A relative newcomer in the HISTORY of dogs, the BLACK RUSSIAN TERRIER was created in the late 1940’s to be a superior GUARD DOG. The now defunct RED STAR KENNEL, a branch that developed dogs for the RUSSIAN MILITARY is behind the breed. Also known as the TCHINORY TERRIER (meaning BLACK TERRIER in Russian) the BRT was specifically bred to be a MILITARY, POLICE and GUARD DOG. A purpose driven WORKING DOG during the Cold War, it is believed that seventeen (17) breeds were mixed and matched to create the BLACK RUSSIAN.
.

.

To RED STAR KENNELS and the RUSSIAN breeders who were motivated in creating the breed, TEMPERAMENT was of the utmost importance. Their ambition was to create an aggressive, assertive and alert dog, able to handle extreme pressure under any weather conditions. Alas a true military dog was born.

.

.

Although the breed is only years removed from its intent of it’s original purpose, the breed is still as hard as nails. An extremely DEFENSIVE driven dog, it takes very little to spark them. They’re weary of strangers and have excellent vision and scent discrimination, pluses for a GUARD DOG. With PREY drive in overdrive and an athletically gifted frame with some topping 130lbs this breed sits steadily on top of the GUARD DOG list.

.

.

In recent years, the BRT has garnered notice outside RUSSIA, gaining AKC recognition in 2004 where conformation is stat quo. This may eventually lead to a watering down of the breed, but luckily they’re still many WORKING representatives. This dog is not for the novice, a strong handler and experience with WORKING DOGS is important as well as working with a knowledgeable trainer. Highly trainable and always willing to work, the breed come with a downside. They’re known to be stubborn, hard headed and most importantly challenging authority seeking to be an ALPHA.

.

.

Some defaults: Hip and Elbow Dysplasia. Since it’s still a relatively new breed, it’s generally a hardy breed with an average life span of 12 years.

The first of the GERMAN breeds to make the list and one that the average person would recognize over the majority of GUARD DOGS previously listed. The ROTTWEILER, ranked 9th most registered dog according to AKC registration continues to be popular despite being labeled the second most DANGEROUS DOG BREED by the Center of Disease Control.
.

.

Initially developed in GERMANY to be a CATTLE DOG and BEAR hunter, the breeds purpose has changed in today’s world where they are now utilized for POLICE, MILITARY, SPORT and of course GUARD WORK. A robust medium to large breed the ROTTIE is known for its biting prowess and once latching onto someone, it will through its body weight the opposite way to throw them off.
.

.

Although highly driven in both DEFENSE and PREY, the latter drive is commonly used to train the ROTTWEILER in SPORT and PPD training. Alert and responsive, trusting little of strangers makes this breed ideal for GUARD work. Lots of socializing and firm training early on is encouraged and when done successfully the breed excels as a family dog, but note MINOR CHILDREN should be supervised when around this breed.
.

.

With a larger than life presence, size, biting power and intimidation being a huge factor an intruder should think twice to approach its home. Many have said that the ROTTWEILER gives the appearance to be slow afoot but “get chased by one and see how slow they are” The breed is truly an ALPHA dog and has its reservations around other dogs.
.

.

Some defaults: Hip and Elbow Dysplasia is prominent within the breed. Adolescent arthritis and cataracts is too. Cancer and a high susceptibility to the PARVO VIRUS as a young pup.

Ever heard the quote “shoot first, ask questions later” well that pretty much sums up the quick fuse of the FILA BRASILEIRO. It is the only breed in conformation shows that it’s not mandatory for a judge to touch the dog. In fact if a Fila does not react aggressively towards a judge, then it is faulted.
.

.

This act of aggression is a character trait and a natural instinct of its temperament and a testament of its extremely high DEFENSIVE drive or as it is known within the FILA circle as OJERIZA defined as a dislike and distrust of strangers in Portuguese. The FILA would rank higher if its not so DEFENSIVE MINDED as some of its aggression is based on fear. I’ll break down on a later post what I mean by this.
.

.

A true Breed of Purpose, a large DOG with some as heavy as 150lbs, primarily bred to hunt JAGUARS and GUARD land and property in its native country of BRAZIL, The FILA doesn’t need much PREY drive as it’s OJERIZA is more than enough to make up for its lack of. Athletic, agile and graceful are all touted in the breed. With its powerful CAT like movement they can haul their large body quickly anywhere in a property.
.
.
With all of this being said, the FILA make excellent FAMILY dogs and a great pet for CHILDREN as they are generally highly tolerable of them. Be advised that a FILA will hardly relate to other PEOPLE as it would its FAMILY. This dedication is an ode to an old BRAZILIAN saying “As faithful as a Fila” Alike many breeds they can be STUBBORN and hard to deal with but unlike many MASTIFFS they require a stringent socialization training especially if living the city throughout their life. They don’t take well to other animals.
.

.

Some defaults: Hip and Elbow Dysplasia. Due to their unusually high croup (rear legs)They’re also prone to bloat or gastric volvulus distention. General life span of 8 to 10 years. An experienced dog owner should consider this breed, not a newbie.

actual and factual

Easter edition: German immigrants brought the Easter “Hare” to the Pennsylvania Dutch area during the 18th century.

.

.

According to tale, children would make nests in their caps and bonnets before Easter, and the Easter hare would bring colored eggs to the children who were good.

.

.

This concept stuck as the egg-laying bunny we idolize in our culture and the tradition has since evolved over many years to the present day where we hide the Easter Bunny eggs around the house or yard, color our own eggs and receive chocolate, jelly beans and other small gifts.

We’re at the halfway point and the remaining breeds from here on out are the cream of the crop when it comes to GUARD DOG duties.

.

.

The BOERBOEL at #5 is not only an exception but the rule as it’s a beast on four legs. The BOERBOEL is not as vocal as some of the dogs on the list but their bark will scare your neighbor down the block. Imagine a 150lb plus GAME PIT that’s ready to go on a whim yet complacent that it knows it doesn’t have to be loud to get your attention.
.

.

The breed is renown for his GUARD DOG abilities in its native country of SOUTH AFRICA as the word “Boerboel” derives from “boer” (pronounced boo-r-bull) the AFRIKAAN/DUTCH word for farmer while the word “boel” is an old slang for DOG translating as FARMER DOG” It is today widely known as the only South African dog breed created to DEFEND (hence guard) the homestead due to its strong territorial instincts. The HISTORY of the BOERBOEL was for the purpose of being a GUARDIAN and it upholds this ideal to the fullest. A little less known fact coming from a couple of old time breeders was one of the reasons the dog was bred for was to keep people of color in control.
.

.

A large, powerful and nimble breed the DEFENSIVE prowess is on point, pair it with its high PREY drive and the dog will hunt down any intruder and bring’em back to your door step to show you what they found. One who is interested in the breed should be an experienced large dog owner. This breed needs early socialization and training to get them to understand what is expected of them. This is surely the breed that starting at 10 weeks versus at 10 months will make the difference.
.

.

Some defaults: Hip Dysplasia and other joint issues. Juvenile Epilepsy and Bloat are also as well. Generally another very hardy breed with an average life span between 10 and 12 years.

The AMERICAN BULLDOG doesn’t have the flair as say a PRESA, PIT BULL or CANE CORSO does when one thinks of a premier GUARD DOG but don’t let the breed fool you. It ranks with any of those breeds with a true working dog history and titles to boot.
.

.

They’re three types of AB’s, the JOHNSON, SCOTT AND STANDARD TYPE, the last being a cross between the two former types. Ranking will be based off the STANDARD which in recent years has become the prominent and identifiable type of the breed and it’s in this cross that the best WORKING representatives has come about.

.

.

Some believe the AB to be the original BULLDOG brought over by EUROPEAN immigrants in the 1800’s. Those dogs were raw and bulldoggy, today’s STANDARD are more refined and athletic ranging in the 90 to 110lbs with some even larger. The breed has a rich history as a FARM GUARDIAN and CATCH DOG working closely with its human counterpart. A well grounded and loyal breed, it truly makes an excellent family dog making it a pleasure around children. These attributes along with a fearlessness towards strangers is a major plus for GUARD DOG duties.
.

.

The breed is exceptionally PREY driven a typical bulldog trait, mix in a optimal balance of DEFENSIVE drive to which it propels the breed as an above average GUARD DOG. This blend has also allowed the breed to excel in the dog sport arena (SCHUTZHUND, RING SPORT, PERSONAL PROTECTION) where it holds a heavy positive presence.

.

.

Some defaults: Hip, Elbow and Shoulder Dysplasia. Skin issues, joint and ligament mainly ACL tears and Cancer. Some dogs may exhibit breathing issues. Overall a hardy breed with a life span average of 10 to 14 years.
