1. Um, yeah btw… I'm a woman who have not only owned 3 rotts but I took in ADULT problem children. My last was already 5 yrs old, no socialization, no training, very "mean" afraid of everything, uncontrollable in public, to the point of having to spend his first 6 months w me in a muzzle because of his poor upbringing to that point and his unpredictability. Within 1 yr of love, socialization and training … he was a TOTALLY different dog. I took him EVERYWHERE off leash, unmuzzled and trusted him in every situation. I am a single woman with no special training or powers!

  2. Raised German Shepard imported puppy's i.luv the intelligence courage instinctive protector all around family dog and man stopper in one my opinion best dog

  3. You should check out catahoula for protection. Super smart and easy to train. Mine is loyal to the death 👍

  4. No more dogs for me… My 16 year old beagle died last year, and I was devastated and heartbroken. My best friend was gone forever.
    I'm not strong enough to deal with that kind of heartache again.

  5. I have a Siberian Husky. I can say he’s very sleepy, but when he wants to play he goes. Doesn’t listen. We can only make him do stuff when we have food in our hands. Maybe that’s me. He will be aggressive with anybody or dog or animal. He’s not socialized becuz we live in the country. Extremely athletic and fairly strong. Would be aggressive to anyone even if I was there, but I’m certain that he’d lose it if someone tried to shove him aside and do something to me.

  6. My favorite home protection dogs are chihuahuas. We have a pack of 57. If an intruder comes on our property, our pack of chihuahuas attack. They are kind of like a school of piranha on a capybara.

  7. Akita is best for Nieghbour’s as they very quiet and if they get noisy than the alarm bells should ring for the owner

  8. My pointer/retriever mix is the best guard dog ever. If he spots an intruder, he retrieves my shotgun, then points at the intruder. Sometimes he even retrieves the body.

  9. The odds of having a natural dog (no protection training at all) that will protect is slim. This has been tested on many occasions and proven the dog wouldn't protect. In a lot of cases they will alert but not protect. This is easily tested. Find a local trainer and set up a test. I've shepards, rotts and several others that the owners thought they would protect only to turn tail and run when pressured.

  10. Many thanks.

    I will be moving to a 3-bed apartment in a high-rise shortly; what home protector do you recommend please?

    My GSD is not likely to come with me and fit because he is so used to open areas and running free.

  11. Excellent overview! I've had Dobies for years, and when properly socialized, they pose zero problems with children and dogs they know. They need to be exercised every day however. They are very intelligent, witty, and loving.

  12. Good video, I like it. However my list would be a bit different. Here it is in order preference German shepherd, Belgian malinois, dutch shepherd, doberman, Dutch Shepherd, and cane corso. The others are not very bright, don't bond well with their owners, or constantly challenge the owners status in "the pack" and pose a liability when around other people, or other pets.

  13. I used to have a corgi and once she chased off someone who broke into my house. My little tiny short corgi.

  14. I would agree it’s all except for Boxers .. these guys would lick an intruder to death . They are however an amazing companion and clowns lol

  15. Thank you for including the Akita, They can be a wonderful protective dog. Because they bond with only a couple of people or family they will be very protective of those people. I had an Akita bond with me and it was wonderful. He protected me on several occasions. Thank you again p.s. I believe it is important to get an Akita when the are young so it can bond with you.

  16. Please excuse my lack of knowledge on the Doberman, which I am interested in. Would the best style be the Europe Doberman or USA Doberman please?


    AND there is no Caucasian Shepherd or Fila Brasilero (sp) on that list!? WOW!

    I have never owned a Fila but did tons of research on them! They will absolutely defend home and family without any sort of guard/protection work.

    Caucasian Shepherds……………lets put it like this; everyone one I've own was unwrapped, bonded with me and my family, and then protected us like nothing that I can describe! Absolutely no training for guard,protection etc was done with them. Now I did extensive obedience work with them but that was it. Also, that whole socializing thing (taking them around different places, people etc) I do not do! If any visitors come over, I put my dogs away.

    If you are a person that has a properly secured yard, live in relatively secluded place (I have no neighbors for about two blocks), EXPERIENCED ENOUGH TO HANDLE A CO, need a protection breed (that needs little to no training ),then I HIGHLY recommend a Caucasian.

    They are low energy, they LOVE their family ( and really like to be around you), their defensive drive is a thing of beauty, for their size they do not eat much, etc. Perfect addition to a family that needs a dog for protection and to love/companionship!

  18. Bring a hot dog and my rott would take u to the goods. Got cheese? Hes ur bestie.
    PS ur spot on regarding the rott & women. Mine was my best friend.

  19. My forst dog was a boxer so i was so happy to see them, they are absolutely amazing family dogs but very energetic, i mean like if you thought you were taking them out for a walk nah, they’re taking you out for a run. Theyre also pretty good with strangers, at least mone was, he would bark at you a lot but as soon as you came inside it was all love from him. I miss the guy.

  20. My neighbours have 2 cane corsos, let me tell you, they dont have a lot of visitors, these dogs are an awesome guardians , but one time they got robbed because dogs were locked.

  21. I've a Newfoundland, it was 2 years old when a person was over my house. We got into an argument I was sitting down, the man hit me in the face, my Newfoundland jumped over my sofa and took the man down,never even drew blood,the man ran out the door my newf laid back down I couldn't believe it!

  22. I'm curious about a dog breed that would be okay with smaller animals. I have 2 toy dogs and a cat. I plan on moving out to the country and would like a dog for protection and to be a beloved pet. I would like medium-large size. Any Suggestions? Edit: I'm leaning heavily on the Doberman even though it's bigger than what I had in mind.

  23. Can someone help me find the perfect dog?
    I have decided to get one for company and to feel safe when walking and working out outside. So I would like it to look intimidating and a plus would be if it could actually protect me if needed. I have never owned a dog before and I also don’t weigh much at all. So the dog i get has to be easy to train and easy to handle. (I also love in Scandinavia so for the sake of the dog, tolerance of both heat and cold would be good too)
    I would be so thankful for a little help.

  24. No hate but a airdale would could be a great addition To this list i know people Will be like there BAD guard dogs i know everthing but have you Owned on they are naturally very nice To their Family mine would Never hurt anything that was innocent it somehow always knew when something was a threat or no one time we were at The cottage and he was playing with ducks then we were at The Woods and there was a bear it was approaching US then My Dog chased after it barking biteing it He chased it up a tree airdales have Been known to actually kill bears To protect their owners and their only 60 lbs dogs and can stop a man and they Are great with kids and really devoted family dogs loyal affectionate family dogs good with cats dont shed good gaurd dogs overall goodboys rip Reggie Miss you!

  25. U don't have to train any breed (or other) to trust only you. Just go through the basics with the same as with U own kids

    Same as withe all my dogs.
    They ALL protected me and gave me more than any human could have, but didn't.
    4 legs, beats 2 anyway!

  26. This video disappoints me. A multitude of these dogs could be really dangerous in the hands of a novice who believes their “protector” needs “very little training”. I’m typically a fan of these videos, but this one was rather disappointing to me.

  27. I came for information about doggies and got a lecture on manginism about how strong and capable are single moms. How disappointing, I've been subscribed to this channel for several months now…

  28. Great video and very informative!!! What are your thoughts on the Kangal or Anatolian Shepherd as guard dogs for the home? ☮️🖖🏽

  29. My buddy sonic (GSD) patrols the house when we're asleep, has chased out an intruder that tried to break in, and alerted us when a "so-called friend" went rogue and tried to thrash the place.
    I love him to death.
    I call him the 95lb teddy bear.
    Anybody that doesn't know how good of a dog he is gets scared when they see him, but if you're a decent person, he won't do crap to you, but if you're a threat even in the slightest, forget it.

  30. they always say 88 pounds for a large male my last male was nearly a hundred and thirty my male i have now is a hundred and twenty two both purebreds with papers and great friendly and very protective

  31. The only thing I have a problem with is the boxer. Great dogs but every boxer I have seen has a problem with other dogs. Other then that a great breed.

  32. In my life, we have had a German shepherd, several Rottweilers and now our first Akita. I would say the Rotties are truly fearless, more so than my limited experience with Akitas but I think my Akita would more horrific if he got on someone. I love walking them together at night, so peaceful with no worries.

  33. I am glad you mentioned the Beauceron. I have yet to see one in person but I know a forester in Idaho that has one (as well as several other dogs). They are so interesting in their appearance….I see Doberman, I see German Shepherd and Rottweiler…..a mix of all of them.

  34. Our English Mastiff is a slob, and I don't think she knows how to bite, but "NOTHING" escapes her attention. If a bird lands on the feeder, she checks it out. Anything she doesn't like, causes a loud blood curdling bark. It is always worth checking out. She knows I'll take care of the problem..

  35. Thank you for saying a woman can handle a Rottweiler-I am a 56 year old female, got my girl from the Humane Society three years ago, and my girl is Simply Perfect In Every Way-"from teddy bear to grizzly bear " is sooo accurate-but what an excellent animal-could not love her more, she is a happy, healthy beastie, very good with cats, children, smaller dogs, dogs her size, just a jolly girl until she gets the idea (with aggressors) that she should not be. She can be a pushy broad, but so am I, and she and I both understand who the boss is. Beyond that, loyal, faithful, trustworthy, beautiful! It is awesome to walk her down the street and those individuals who are talking to themselves on street corners will cross the street, instead of attempting to engage with me. She and I have full faith in each other! One of my sons picked her out for me, because he said he can happily move on with his life because he knows if she's there, Mom will be, too!

  36. I’ll stick with my guns!!!!! Don’t have to feed them or train them and they will never die and will always be there for me!!!!!!!!

  37. This list consists of dogs that's good for Homes with out kids. especially the Akita. Hell they are banned in most places and there's a reason why

  38. *asked-not axed, *characteristics, not kakteristics, *chronological? in order by date? date in reference to WHAT?, *KAH-nay KOR-so, *infrastructure: structures and facilities (e.g. buildings, roads, power supplies) needed for the operation of a society or enterprise.

  39. No pitbull?

    I don't agree with the Akita if you have another dog(s). My Akita messed my Rotty up. Had to get rid of it.

  40. No.1 chihuahua, even if they bite your nose off and piss in your mouth they will alarm you whenever a single pen falls on the carpet they will rip apart an intruders Achilles tendon and all your friends they are kind to no one

  41. The seemingly little known Black Mouth Cur! Velcro dog, High drive, athletic, very intelligent naturally (there known to train you!) and overly protective. Only issue is there exercise needs, essentially farm dogs lol

  42. Yes, thank you for pointing out that women can handle their dogs just fine. I live with two big knuckleheads that are half shar pei and half english mastiff. They were never easy dogs, even as puppies, but well worth it.

  43. I love big dogs, used to have a Siberian husky, but they just don't live as long as a smaller dog. My last dog was a rat terrier and he died at 17 years. Getting two more next month.

  44. I know a Rottie owned by a single woman. comes home, has a beer and sits out back. Dog is all over her. I walked in the house and rottie was under table, got and came at me. He found my knee, i put his leash on and we went bike riding. "Oh he's never done that" This constant distraction kept the dog in circles. He was a small handful, yet a few blocks, short break, back home. Took the edge off…then sniffed and pee'd on the bike. Id brought it out ahead of me, then the dog. Im not upset if the pack leader (the bike) is my boss. Rottie and blue pits. they breed them in apt.'s and use vet's from their homeland to say its a mix. 18 yr old woman had a blue pit and forgets the "terrier" I ask for thoughts on jack Russels and evryone disliked them. My neighbour takes his out 3- 4 hours daily. Best Jack ever. She had two young kids. I knew a st bernard thetook the baby's skull like toy. Of course, people 25 and under cant grasp the workload. i dont let pups even get near the gate, never on it. It's this simple-dogs arent deaf nor understand english. Say the command, follow through. Get the dog back and beside you. hell, i wake mine up from a sound sleep, use "off" and pull his collar (not the choke) and him off, then i laydown. One last point re: Rottiesare great dogs, ive just seen so many bad, nervous, etc. People get them for image ( not all, but mom buggy and b
    rottie sees somethingand takes off. She had a 20' ft retractable on an 85 lb dog. Dont buy a corvette if youve never done it.

  45. You missed the part where the giant schnauzers bark excessively, like all terriers, They see a mouse and can't get it, they'll stand over the hole and constantly bark..
    a constant Giant bark from these big dogs will turn you into the neighborhood nuisance real quick…

  46. I have a pitbull terrier and am training her to be protective, am also an amateur. Is that ok with me training her, I also do training research and watch videos

  47. No training necessary? all dogs should be trained and if you don't train your animals you shouldn't be allowed to have kids either.

  48. I'm quite a ways away from moving out, but when I do my dream trio of protection dogs is a male rottie, a female Doberman, and a male either German Shepard or Boxer. You just can't trust people so I really want some doggies that are sweet to me, but are not afraid to tear some idiots' butts up.

  49. never underestimate a labrador. I learned this when play fighting with a friend as teenager. his black lab got between us, pushed me up against a wall, standing with his paws pushing my chest and barking and growling in my face. shocked the heck out of me.

  50. Wow interesting that Rottweilers caused too much damage to criminals much more than German Shepards good to know. Rottweilers used to be illegal or borderline illegal and as feared as pit bulls now

  51. Lol 😝 plus many males seems to forget that not only do males are different sizes and heights so are females and there are too many short guys so many males might not be able to handle a large Rottweiler!

  52. Wow 😲 how is the beauceron or any dog good at problem solving?! Good god I need that! 😂 lol ! I never heard of that dog and it looks so much like a Doberman!

  53. my rott bitch has been dead many years now. i miss her still. she was everything i could possibly want from a dog. she was a much better dog than i was a human.

    some of the dogs shown here have one advantage over a smaller mutt. the small cross breed mutt, may be an exceptional dog. it may be very intelligent. it might be a valiant companion and protect with its life. but the one advantage of owning a dog like a rott, is that an intruder may very well take one look at your dog and instantly decide against his intended bad actions, and walk away.

    a dog with a reputation like those in this video can therefore "win" the battle without lifting a finger. no battle to win because to battle to fight.

    you will want to get your dog trained. think of your dog as a white slate. nothing is written on the slate unless you put it there.

    i also had a fila brasileiro. if you own a few acres the dog my do very well for you. he wants so much to fit into the family. but i will not dispute their reputation.

  54. 99 percent of dogs need additional training for home protection. There is a small percentage that will do protection but calling it back will pose a problem. You need to train for this, dont be ignorant. Your dog can be put down if it isnt trained to stop or retreat when needed.
