A guard dog can be a wonderful addition to any home. The likelihood of your property being burglarized goes down considerably when these dogs are present in the home. It is important to note that these breeds require adequate and proper training to help transition the dog into your home.

Home owners need to be aware of this before purchasing or adopting a dog breed with aggressive traits. Improper training or neglect will result in a very aggressive dog that can be dangerous around small children, the elderly and other dog breeds. Here are the best guard dogs to own for 2019.


19Rhodesian Ridgeback

Originally from Southern Africa, this dog is known for its ability to keep lions away from prey while the dog’s master makes the kill. This semi-domesticated ridged hunting dog is loyal and intelligent, but is very aloof to strangers. They also require positive reward-training, avoidance of rough treatment and good socialization skills since they can be over-sensitive and may develop an aggressive side.
