Rottweilers are the best guard dogs. They have more powerful jaws than German Shepherds, so Rottweilers should be number one. German Shepherds aren't as strong and loyal as the Rottweiler, which makes it such a great guard dog. It has more than 328 pounds of jaw pressure when biting, while the German Shepherd only has a 238 bite force. Don't get why Rotties aren't first, Go Rottweilers!

Arguably the strongest livestock guardian due to the natural breeding process and evolution it has been through. Immense strength is its most known characteristic however that is not all it possesses. It is adaptable to extreme temperatures, extremely intelligent and independent so that it can take action on its own to neutralize a threat. The dog are livestock guardians which are the biggest and strongest dogs and out of these specialized dogs it is the biggest and has the strongest bite force. Was bred to deal with wolf packs, brown bears, leopards, lynxes and boars. Definitely deserving of the #1 spot and if not then its cousin the malakli aksaray.
