One of the more interesting areas are guard/protection dogs, and how to use them, and namely the breeds, and or special mixes of several breeds. ( I will cover those in another article).
This is about facts as I have found them to be from many sources. We all have our favorite dog(s) that is for sure. Every time on any forum, when “what are the best dogs” comes up, and everyone hops on the bandwagon. Most of the breeds I will talking about I have never owned, been around many of them , hunted behind and with some of them, a few I've never seen in person.
Very much the guard/protection dog. Family is first, all others standby to get out of the way. Very intimidating beast. I have a friend who has one, once he knows you it is okay, but you have the feeling he just wants an excuse.
They scare the bad guys, and will defend your family and home. They work great in pairs. They have become very popular, and you need to check ,and make sure they are not coming from a puppy mill. I have hunted behind these dogs and they are fearless.
great dogs, very smart and have a rep also. Hard to get one that has no problems waiting in the future.
My Akita topped off at 125 pounds and was intimidating if you didn't know her. Great dogs.
In addition I am looking at them for other uses as well, that will be in another article and or in my book.
