A dog is not only a friend and companion with whom you can play ball and lie on the couch in an embrace. She is able to make life easier for a person, to be an assistant in the hunt, guide and bodyguard. The protective qualities of dogs are also known, for the sake of which they are often bred.
Alabai, or the Central Asian Shepherd Dog, is perfect for protecting a large territory. If you need to look after a house with a huge plot or you are engaged in the protection of objects, Alabai can be an excellent assistant. This is a strong and hardy dog, unpretentious and feels great on the street. However, the Central Asian Shepherd Dog has a steep disposition, and it should be started by a person who will be able to cope with the dog. A training course for such an animal should be mandatory. Alabai is unlikely to be able to become a companion dog, responsive to the slightest change in the owner's mood, but if you don't need this, then your home will be under reliable protection.
Caucasian Shepherd Dog
The Caucasian Shepherd Dog is another large dog with a developed guardian instinct. Together with the inherent distrust of strangers in this breed, these qualities make the "Caucasian" an excellent candidate for the protection of the territory. Unlike the Alabaevs, the Caucasian Shepherd Dog is able to be not only a guard, but also a devoted friend. She also needs a master whom she will respect, but after the dog understands his place in the hierarchy and agrees with him, she will become a loving and devoted member of the pack, who is not afraid to entrust both the protection of the house and the children.
The German Shepherd is not as strong as an Alabai or Caucasian, but if you need a dog that can guard the territory, but at the same time live in an apartment, know how to be a bodyguard and take part in games, intolerant of outsiders who violate the boundaries of its territory, but tied to household members, this breed will be a great option for you. This is an intelligent and loyal dog with a calm character, suitable for a wide variety of services. German Shepherds are characterized by high learning abilities and are capable of much to win the approval of their owner.
Black russian terrier
Black Terrier is a dog breed bred in the USSR. It is perfect for sentry duty, tolerates cold well, has long limbs and powerful jaws, which leaves the intruder with little chance of escape. The black terrier lends itself well to training, and it will not be difficult for the owner to develop the necessary qualities in him. However, the black terrier is not a dog that can be chained and left to guard a country cottage, coming only occasionally to feed the animal. This dog needs full contact with a loving owner and his family.
