What kind of dog should I get?
Looking to get a dog to train as guard dog. I'm already leaning towards a German Shepard. No Pitbulls or Rottweilers, but would consider a exotic breed. Any suggestions?

Re: What kind of dog should I get?
Uh, do you mean an ATTACK dog, capable of taking down a man and chewing his face off?

A guard dog that just guards and alerts can be a little chihuahua if he bark loud enough.

My mid-sized terrier it a great alarm, and is not afraid to run down an intruder and bite the shit out of him. That's enough time for me to get in a defensive posture and take care of business, if you know what I mean.

However, the best dog is ONE YOU CAN TRAIN to do what you need him to do. A big pit bull who won't follow your commands is a lawsuit waiting to happen. That's why they are a problem breed.

A German Schutzhund (a Shepherd specialty breed) has shown up in my research time and time again as the best all-around "guard" dog, if properly raised, socialized and trained. But we're talking a big dog and a bigger commitment to training.

I'm not a pitbull hater. I personally don't trust them though, and haven't heard about many police or security forces using them.

I want a dog that police or security forces would use, I know they use German Shepards.

Re: What kind of dog should I get?
I'll second the mid sized terrier. They're fun as hell, smart, protective and so god damn lovable. Not to mention its easy to find a breed to fit your specific needs. Everyone will probably mention bigger dogs but IMO when SHTF you're better off with a small dog, medium dog and a large dog and then breeding them to suit the specific situation.

Assuming the dog will be OUTSIDE, I'd like to suggest a beagle. I have one. They're extremely smart, loyal, protective, and loving. Ours weighs about 60 pounds. While they're not the biggest dogs, they're all muscle, and could take out anybody. They howl, or "sing" as we call it to alert you of something. Some people are annoyed, but I think it's beautiful. Ours would make an intruder wish they'd never come within a mile of our yard.

The dog is also used extensively by Unit Oketz of the Israel Defense Forces. Oketz favors the slighter build of the Malinois over that of the German Shepherd and Rottweiler which were employed formerly. Malinois are the perfect size to be picked up by their handlers, while still being able to attack their enemies, and their shorter coats and fair and neutral colors make them less prone to heatstroke.

Mals are nice dogs. Smart as they can be and busy, busy, busy. A working GSD (German Shepherd Dog) is also very, very active, but I think a Mal tops even them. You'd have to be a real busy person with either one of them. If their energy isn't channeled, they can be destructive...or worse. hf

Being far more ignorant about Beagles than I'd like to admit, why did you say "outside" dog? And yours is smart?
Can you give an example?

Reason I'm asking, a beagle showed up at my house at the end of last winter. No one claimed him after trying every resource I could to find his owner. So, he's still here. Sometimes I think he's outsmarting me; other times I don't think he has a brain in his head at all. His nose seems to be the control system of his body.

He's adorable, loving, funny, but tries to be the top dog and intimidate my GSD. More courage than brains. Also extremely possessive. Of me, his crate, his toys, his food and water. Anything.

So, will you tell about yours?

Husky's are jumpers and escape artists....better have a high fence. Very intelligent, not so much guard dogs. Akitas are good guard dogs as are GS. Remember, most thieves will not enter a yard with a big scary looking dog in it. Good luck...and visit a shelter...lots of good pups there.

German Shepherd. They will make a better guard dog. Especially if you have the money to have it trained.

Pit bulls are good at laying waste to other dogs and critters, but they would probably be too friendly to would be thieves.

Rottweilers are intimidating but they end up big and fat and lazy.

Doberman Pincers can be trained to be a good gaurd dog and they are intimidating as well.
