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.

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.

You’d think a dog resembling a cross between two of the most common GUARD DOGS in the world would automatically make the list. Well it did, the BEAUCERON rarely seen outside of its country of origin FRANCE is the breed.
.

.

The BEAUCERON is an old breed developed in the plain region of La Beauce, FRANCE. A multi-purpose dog primarily bred as a livestock guardian has evolved into a sporting, police, protection and GUARD DOG. The breed possesses a strong but subdued personality which is possibly why it hasn’t received the same notoriety as the MALINOIS, DUTCH or GERMAN SHEPHERD all of which are known to be high PREY oriented breeds.
.

.

A large SHEPHERD type dog weighing upwards of 130lbs, yet athletically gifted. The breed is utilized by the military in its native country so for GUARD work in a home setting isn’t asking much at all. With strong DEFENSE and PREY drives, both keys to a great GUARD DOG the BEAUCERON is a formidable foe.
.

.

Maturation is slow and socialization is a must so training is important while the dog is young as they can be destructive. Do your due diligence in finding the right temperament for your home as the BEAUCERON can exhibit a “Sharp Shy” attitude. They’re loyal when it comes to family but can be a little testy around small children. As with all the dogs on this list, training is important to maximize its potential for any type of protection work. The breed exhibits an understanding of retaining information when being taught to do a specific duty.
.

.

Some defaults: Hip dysplasia and Gastric torsion are common within the breed. Average life span of up to 12 years, they’re as hardy as they come. A cousin of the breed, the BRIARD would be an alternative breed to consider sharing many similarities as the BEAUCERON appealing to those seeking big shaggy type dog. Lastly, the breed is known for is rear extra dew claws.

Possibly the most controversial breed on the list, speak to an owner of a PIT BULL and you’ll hear positive and endearing comments. To everyone else, the breed is public enemy number one. Note: included in this ranking will be the AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER as they have similar temperaments and abilities for GUARD WORK, everything else, the breeds aren’t the same.
.

.

The PITBULL was bred to be a FIGHTING DOG, while the AM STAFF was the show counterpart. Throughout history it was widely known to be people friendly as aggressive dogs were not tolerated, so back then to tout the breed as a guard dog goes against the grain. True DOG MEN would have another breed protecting their kennel and property.
.

.

With an overwhelming loyalty of family and home, the right balance of DEFENSE and unlimited amount of PREY, guarding duties is second nature for a task as simple as a GUARD DOG. Add a great aptitude towards training, aloofness towards strangers, superb athleticism ranging from 30 to 80lbs and always on alert helps this breed to fit in an experienced home in need of a comparable GUARD DOG. Today the breed has evolved into an all around dog excelling in sport, service, police and even herding work.
.

.

Indiscriminate breeding of inferior dogs has lent to the majority of problems we see today. In recent years the breed has been misrepresented by both unfit ownership and media. Despite negative media reports the PITBULL excels with children due to their high toleration and even temper. Although the breed can be aggressive towards dogs and animals, early proper socialization, firm training and compatible ownership can control their behavior. Overall the PIT BULL is a cut above the rest in a smaller but just as powerful package .
.

.

Some defaults: Hip and Elbow dysplasia, heart disease and patella luxation. Otherwise a very hardy breed. Photo cred: tagged

If you were asked to physically describe what a GUARD DOG breed would look like, the PRESA CANARIO would come to mind. The PRESA was bred to be a CATCH DOG (a dog used to catch large animals in hunts) a farm dog and guard throughout its history.
.

.

A large, muscular and athletic dog weighing in at around 130lbs. It’s a beast of a dog with fluidity, a slight attitude problem and a commanding presence which places it a HIGH INTIMIDATION factor. Dog and human aggression is also a concern. Firm training, early socialization and a direction of what you want from your dog is recommended.
.

.

The breed has caught the attention of many large dog enthusiast in recent years. As mentioned in the criteria breakdown, DEFENSE drive is the backbone of an optimal GUARD DOG. Its the second dog on the list (behind the CANE CORSO) featuring a balance of both drives, rather than just high DEFENSE. In my opinion the PRESA is better balanced dog than the CANE making it a more suitable choice as a sport or personal protection dog and therefore gaining a notch on this list.
.

.

Overall the PRESA isn’t the definition of a guard dog as would the TIBETAN MASTIFF or the NEO but because of its balance of drives, fierce loyalty for its family and the ability to further develop as a protection dog sets this breed apart from the others.
.
.
Some defaults: Hip and Elbow Dysplasia, Epilepsy, Entropion (Cherry eye) and for male dogs Crytorchidism (where one testicle does not descend) Maturation is slow in this breed as is the majority of all MASTIFF. The dogs take well to both warmer and colder climates, preferring cooler.

Prior to 1988 the CANE CORSO was non-existent in America. By 2014, it ranked 47th according to AKC registrations. On this list the CANE is the first GUARD DOG to exhibit a balanced ratio of DEFENSIVE & PREY drives.
.

.

At an average of 110lbs the CANE (pronounced ka-nee) is smaller than most MASTIFF. In recent years, 140+lbs dogs are becoming common, as long as their bred physically sound with a great temperament. Luckily for the breed, their are many dedicated enthusiasts that are focusing on working dogs rather than the show world.
.

.

The CANE CORSO is considered the only “Coursing” MASTIFF in the dog kingdom. Coursing; a sport of hunting game animals such as hares or larger game with sight rather than scent. There some debate over their history but that’s for another post. Overall this original idea of the breed contributed to a higher prey drive and athleticism.
.

.

The CANE excels as a personal protection and sport dog. Their high aptitude and athleticism is a potent combination and as mentioned in the beginning, the breed exhibits a balance of PREY and DEFENSE drives with the latter being useful for GUARD DOG duties. In a home setting, the CORSO is always “Johnny on the spot” and with some formal training, this breed excels as a guardian.
.

.

A loyal and docile dog around family settings, the breed can be stubborn and do enjoy their alone time (A plus for guard dog duties) with this lending to a moody and temperamental dog at times. When around small children and other small dogs, supervision is advised.
.

.

Some defaults: Hip & Elbow dysplasia, skin issues such a demodectic mange and gastric torsion (stomach bloat) otherwise the breed is a hardy dog with an average span of 9 – 12 years.
