The 11 Best Guard Dogs for Personal Protection
1. Central Asian Ovtcharka: Faithful Guard Dog
When a stranger arrives at the farm, the female Ovtcharka runs out to meet him. If she feels threatened she attacks, from the waist down. At the first sign of her distress, the 200-300 pound male, who has been observing from afar, comes running. He doesn’t mess around. He goes straight for the intruder’s head.
This Russian guard breed 4000 years old, originating in the steppes of Central Asia. For millennial these guard dogs have protected flocks and shepherds, and they require little training. Despite their ability to be ferocious, they are tender and loving to their family. They are gentle with children, kittens and any creature that you designate as part of the pack.
