When you’re happy, your dogs happy. When your sad, your dog is hanging around next to you wondering what’s wrong.
.
.

But what else do they have to do but watch and study your every moves observing closely for the signals that your mood has changed. Humans use language (words) as their queue but a dog being around us all the time are able to see our body language, change in tone and smells to know something’s changed (mood)
They have perfected the ability to read our body language.
.
.

An example of a dog’s understanding of body language is how they always seem to find that one person in a room full of people who doesn’t like dogs. That person would tense up, change their body posture and stare that dogs are immediately attracted to the person’s behavior and view it as a “challenge” putting the dog in a defense mode to check them out.

Cheat sheet.
.
.

Any trainer will begin housebreaking, leash work, house rules and scheduling the minute they bring home their puppy. So why wouldn’t you train your puppy from the beginning?
.
.

Can an old dog learn new tricks? Of course they can, but when will you begin training them “these tricks?”
.
.

Training begins with the first “sit” Train them right and consistently making sure that the dog understands what is expected of them. In the end, no ones to blame but yourself when the dog develops behavioral issues that could of been avoided by doing it right the first time.

In the next few posts, I will be reintroducing the list of Top 10 Guard dog breeds and the reason why I choose them. This is the breakdown as to the criteria that I used for that list.
.
.

With 300 plus breeds of purpose to choose from it was difficult as I’m partial to many of them. Many on this list are dogs that I’ve personally had experience working/training/owning.
.

.
The focus of this “list” is to educate a future owner of a “guard dog” and to share my knowledge and personal experience of each breed so they can better decipher which breed is better suit for there purpose.
.
.
CRITERIA: 
.
.

Physical; with size varying from 40 to 200 plus lbs. for a typical guard dog. It would be the discretion of the potential owner on the decision to choose.
.
.
Drive; the majority of “guard dogs” rely on “Defense” drive, defined as “A means of protecting something from attack” Defense comes down to a response called – Fight or Flight.
.

.
A dog’s self-confidence in a stressful situation dictates what he’s gonna do when the pressure is on. A dog that exhibits a strong (FIGHT) drive will stand his ground (ideal for a guard dog), whereas a dog lacking a strong defensive (FIGHT) drive will be unsure in the situation choosing to run (FLIGHT) and react cowardly.
.
.

Aptitude; the word STUBBORN is attached to many of the breeds listed. In the breakdown I took into consideration their trainability as well as sociability with his master and family.
.
.

Overall; intimidation factor, history and stigma all played a role as well with my experience with the breeds.
.

Humans do a fantastic job at making things more complicated than it should be. Ownership of a dog should not be stressful.
.

Invest the time to find a good trainer and do your part. Start young, be committed and have fun. Mistakes will happen, but learn from them instead of fretting from them.

No matter how many mistakes your dog makes or how slow they progress in understanding, they learn by those mistakes. Don’t get upset over their mishaps. It’s never too late to train your dog, read a book, watch a video, hire a trainer and implement the lessons you learned so they can do better next time.

You can purchase a solid door, the best locks, bullet proof windows and even an alarm but nothing beats owning a dog as the best deterrent that money can buy. Speak to the majority of law enforcement officers and you’ll hear that a home with a dog is less likely be burglarized.
.
.
Why is that? It’s the one intangible that a criminal has little answers to dealing with. They can pick locks, break doors, climb buildings but once encountered by a dog that has been properly trained to protect and commit, then the odds are in you’re favor.
.
.
But before you get excited and go out and purchase a dog, read the rest of this post. “If a dog has never seen it, chances are he wouldn’t know how to deal with it” My clients have heard me say this time and again, but what exactly do I mean?
.
.
A dog is acquired for the purpose to protect, breeds such as Rottweilers and German Shepherd are usually thought of because of their rich history of being a legitimate guard dog. Yet simply purchasing a “guard dog” isn’t going to solve your protection needs.
.
.
So let’s go back to my quote, “if a dog has never seen it, chances are he wouldn’t know how to deal with it” The majority of dogs that has never been formally trained does not know how to handle a legitimate situation such as a break-in or home invasion robbery because “he’s never seen nor experienced an episode as such” and wouldn’t know exactly what to do.
.
.

A little known instinct would kick in “fight or flight” and if given a chance to run the dog will do so. Now they’re is always the exception to the rule but in my experience I’ve dealt with many dogs choosing the flight versus the fight.
.
.

This is what you should know about a “home protection dog” This is not a guard dog, as a guard dog is a dog that is placed in an area to guard and this is not a personal protection dog, a dog trained to protect your personal similar to a K9 police dog A home protection dog is for the purpose of defending ones home. He is a dog that is loyal to its family and household and is fairly obedient as well as social.

If you are ever in the market for a dog as such, don’t just trust the words of the breeder as his job other than finding a good home for this puppy is to sell you the goods and that usually goes with telling you what you want to hear. Some formal training is needed to fully have confidence that your dog will do the job if your ever in that predicament. A police dog isn’t one cause the breeder bred him to be that, as a dog for the blind isn’t one also because of the breeder. It takes training to achieve that, a reputable breeder will put the genetics together but it takes training to get the results.

I’ve been lucky to have owned and/or trained every breed of dog that I’ve ever wanted too. The #doguedebordeaux was one of my favorites breeds to own, I had two (2) males that did bite work – Reno and Slob. I’ve yet to see one in 30 years that would actually work as hard as the ones I had.
.
.
I must add that owning all these majestic dog breeds only helped me better understand the differences of behavior from breed to breed as well as gain an overall knowledge in dealing with each one with the respect that comes with ownership of these dogs.
.
.
Quick story: I noticed the bags of dog food would be raided and slobbered by one of the dogs but I couldn’t figure out which would do it since they were in kennels. One day I looked out the window and noticed Reno pop his gate open, go into the bag of food, eat a few large gulps of dog food then retreat back into his kennel, all the while closing the latch behind him. Smh this guy was too clever for his own self.
