Best Guard Dog Breeds

The top guard dog breeds are excellent at defending people, property, and possessions.

1. German Shepherd

 The German Shepherd is one breeds that most people picture when they imagine a guard dog.

2. Cane Corso

Since they make such excellent security dogs, let's be honest: all it takes is one glance at one.

3. Akita

The Akita may not be the most terrifying breed of a guard dog on this list, but occasionally a little cognitive power is required in addition to all that muscle.

4. Bullmastiff

At 552 pounds per square inch, this breed's bite force is the strongest of any dog breed.

5. Doberman Pinscher

Although the Doberman's size, obvious force, speed, and vigilance may appear to be its best qualities, it is its intellect that makes it an excellent guard dog.

6. Komondor

This Hungarian-bred dog is much more than just a sheepherder; it feels compelled to watch out for the family and is naturally protective.

7. Giant Schnauzer

Say hello to the Giant Schnauzer, the larger relative of the Miniature Schnauzer, which you might be more familiar with.

8. American Staffordshire Terrier

The Staffy is one of the most misunderstood canine breeds. These dogs make fantastic pets since they are kind, kind, devoted, and adorable.
