The number one GUARD DOG and it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, is the GERMAN SHEPHERD. The epitome of a BREED OF PURPOSE, it has remained ever so popular because of its adaptability to almost any situation and duty that is presented. The SHEPHERD is considered the most recognizable dog in the world and has been ranked in the top 10 in registration (AKC) for the last 40 plus years.

As a GUARD DOG, it not only excelled but pretty much set the standard. The sport of SCHUTZHUND initially began as a breed suitability test for GERMAN SHEPHERDS and is the benchmark for dogs being considered for PERSONAL PROTECTION, POLICE WORK and as a GUARD DOG. Even with accomplishments as such the dog is first and foremost a family dog and with proper training and socialization, a highly recommended breed for those seeking a great family pet and protection.

I’ve mentioned how important DEFENSIVE DRIVES are to the build up of a quality guard dog and the SHEPHERD is no slouch in this department. It comes very naturally to the breed, inherently as it has been bred as a working dog for over a hundred years. A large dog and athletically gifted, it has the size and agility to take down a potential intruder.

Adaptability is the universal language of this breed, cold or warm climates don’t affect the breed and its usefulness as a herding, service, blind, therapy, search and rescue, a host of purposes that most other breeds couldn’t even begin to cover continues to place the SHEPHERD as a top performer.
.
.

Unfortunately, it’s become difficult for a novice dog owner to find a quality Shepherd today. With so many types (European, American, working and show) and each one producing a type of temperament, it is best to go with a reputable dog man in aiding in this endeavor.

Some defaults: a hardy breed that has a healthy life span of 10 to 14 years with many similar health issues as other large breeds including hip, shoulder and elbow dysplasia. Epilepsy and Dwarfism are common hereditary issues within the breed as well.
