The Top Ten Protective Dog Breeds
If you have seen I am legend, you will fall in love with these dogs
I currently have 2 right now and they are VERY protective of my family. - Pegasister12
Yup, 100% true. Here is a story.
I went to Poland once with my dog to see my grandmother. She had a dog. Once, I had the task to feed him. But when I did, he jumped and bit a piece of my cheek off. My dog saw that and almost killed that other dog. He sat by me when I cried and always kept that dog away from me. He was at a leash, but it broke. When it was fixed Coraggio (the name of the dog) always stayed with me and kept that other dog away from me, cause the leash was a bit too long. - PugLlama
My dad had a German Shepherd and when I was young I would play with him but sometimes he didn't like it so all he'd do is nibble at my ear.
I had a retriever lab and has now passed away but twice we got robbed an she would hold them down till the police came but they are also loyal and my dog Mess was the best dog ever
I have a black lab mix she is the best dog. She is VERY protective of our family. She is also VERY gentle. And I would have to say that she is the best dog I have ever had.
I had a black lab when I was seven. She protected me and my friends. Labrador Retrievers are pretty protective. - surfacing
I love labs but mine isn't very protective. In fact she'd greet a burglar if one came to my house - PianoQueen
Rottweiler's should be 2 - CRK10
I own a 3 year old male Rottweiler and he's the best thing that happened to me.
There is a Rottweiler on our road and he barks at us when we walk by
When I was a baby and we went on a walk, my Rottweiler would literally check on me every few minutes.
They are nicknamed Velcro dogs - KimNoel
This is the best dog breed in the world
SCRAP this dog, its only feature is to be aggressive, they are not cute just dangerous and have place on the planet.
Dobermans can protect a big spot of land becuse they can run fast!
But they are not good with children and are not good family dogs.
We have had many dobies, and they are great family dogs. None of our dobies were ever aggressive to the kids, but our poodle was!
My bullmastiff Gus will do anything I ask and would protect me to the death if need be, always let's me know if someone is around but never in an overtly aggressive way. Wonderful family dog my kids can use him as a pillow, jungle-gym, or anything in between.
I love Bull mastiffs
I currently own a 5 year old Bullmastiff named Diesel. This dog would literally protect me to the death, yet he has been trained to do so. He makes a very good protection dogs and I don't think anyone would be messing with me any time soon!
My bullmastiff passed away three months ago. We are still grieving... He was the most awesome pet. So kind and extremely protective of his family. He was always by my side. So loving to all of us. Best dog!
I have a Husky mix, and he is VERY PROCTECTIVE. He is super sweet and kind to everybody, but even if me and my dad are wrestling, he gets extremely upset because he thinks we are hurting each other. He is very protective of our house and yard. Many people think huskies would leave with a burglar and aren't good guard dogs, but I have to disagree. My husky is an excellent watch dog with excellent hearing, and he is also pretty intimidating being so big and with his sharp teeth and fierce growl and bark when he is upset.
Pits are loyal misunderstood dogs they do what make their owner happy but they are protective and keep their owners safe
I think this should be number 1!
Pit bulls are known to be aggressive because owners don't know how to take care of them properly search up Cesar Millan and find out how to really take care of you dog.
In illonois were I come from in a tiny town were my uncle comes from had 18 pit bulls every house got robbed except uncles houses
I used to have a giant schnauzer. Wait no it was a miniature schnauzer sorry. They were great dogs. When I was about 2 they would always be by my side, since I had epilepsy. They watched me eat jello when my dad fed it to me, and if any dropped, would kindly make sure to clean the floor right away. These are great dogs
My border collie is very protective (she's fence aggressive but the sweetest thing you'll ever meet) - Mockingjay05
My border collie isn't that protective, but that's just her personality.
Chihuahua's are a very protective breed. Mine saved my life, and I will always be grateful. They may be small, but they are smart and agile. If I had to chose between getting attacked by a big dog or getting attacked by a chihuahua I'd pick the big dog. A chihuahua who has labeled you a threat to their pack, will not back down. they deserve far more respect as a breed then they get.
I would pick a Chihuahua because a big dog could rip off your face in one bite
Very protective... Love these dogs! They just want to protect their owner. They are very sweet in my opinion.
Very good dogs and they will absolutely let you know if someone's around!
No, they're just nasty and love intimidating people like they're so tough
My friend's golden retriever who is only 2 months old barks at me when I enter their house. She is sweet when she gets used to you, but she will bark at anyone who didn't come about 6 times in a row.
These thing are not protective I hit a friend who had one of these and the dog did nothing
My sis has one of these breeds and their VERY protective
I had 2 of them they both died though
From newborns up, if they are a part of the family, they'll die to protect them. Pronouns can be applied in various ways and still be valid. Go Boxers!
Should be ranked above pitbull. Maybe 5or 6 on popularity
Great for protecting kids
Beagle are so protective that people use beagle to protect their family
Yes a bit too protective in my opinion. There's one chained up down our road and I'm scared because it barks at EVERYONE that walked past and jumps and stuff
Newfoundlands should defiantly be number 1
It is a smart dog its colour is beautiful
Very protective! Love them!
I love st brenards. they are adorable as puppies and even though I don't have one of my own, they are so awesome, and I really want one. They are protective as well. I love this breed of dog, no matter how much it sheds or drools.
A pug on this list. Seriously? I like pugs but they're not "protective dogs." Although there were cases of pugs saving people, those were not from dangerous people or dangerous animals.
My pyrenees always lies by the front door of our house,and when someone opens it he barks,to make sure it is someone he knows.
Dachshund is the best
They are always paying attention to threats, I love these dogs!
They are protective, but since they are so smart, they understand easily when someone is nice or threatening.
One of the best dog breeds for kids. They are very gentl and friendly around infants and children. In packs, they can hunt lions.
They are very protective and they are pretty big.
My aunt’s yorkie barks at everything
Don't let there friendly appearance fool you! They don't look like the type of dog that would be a guard dog but they are! They also are not recamended for families with children.
My family owns one Kuvasz and one Akbash. They are both a pretty mellow breed indoors but need a lot of room to roam and a 6 foot high fence. they do better in the country and need a job to do in order to be happy. Ours keep the chickens, ducks and csts safe from raccoons and coyotes. They're stubborn, but sensitive and need gentle, consistent training.
My daughter had one. He was the most protective dog I have ever been around and would bite anyone who came near me or my daughter.
Yeah they bark at anything and everything, even thin air lol (I have one)
Any dog that's chained up is a no for me...
I picked this dog because there the only dog that go for the throte like a tiger there killers scairy dogs would be beter suited living in th wild dangerious
Little dog with such a loyal nature, with a little more bone than a toy fox terrier, but not as high energy as a rat terrier. Such a loyal dog breed with eyes only for you, they will follow you to the ends of the earth and never leave your Side, if you come accross a bridge on your travels and you decided to jump off that bridge your mini foxie will jump off straight after you before he views your splash...they are easy keepers, and as noted they are such a loyal breed, and they don't change loyalties very easily, they don't care if you live in a huge mansion or you live in a shoe box just as long as they are with you.
I think this will also protect
My dog is very protective but also sweet
They are very protective
