Why German Shepherds Make the Best Protection Dogs

There are many reasons that a dog can make a great pet, but dogs can be useful as well. They can be gentle and helpful to people with disabilities, and many dogs are good protection animals. By nature, dogs are social animals. This is not surprising, considering the fact that dogs are descended from wolves. A dog pack has a strict social structure; every member has a role, and outsiders are not to be trusted. In addition, properly handled dogs are eager to please, making training a relatively quick and easy process.

German Shepherds are, arguably, the best protection dogs around. German Shepherds are all descendants of herding and farming dogs. Today, this versatile dog is the most popular choice for police and military uses. The breed was officially recognized by the AKC in 1908. You can find more information at its website: http://www.akc.org/breeds/german_shepherd_dog/index.cfm.

The German Shepherd is perfectly suited for the protection role. These dogs are typically friendly and loving to their families, and good with children — though children and dogs should never be left together unattended. German Shepherds are wary but never fearful of strangers. With an average height of 2 feet at the shoulders, with powerful jaws and a lean, muscular body, a German Shepherd is a very intimidating animal, certain to make most criminals think twice. This muscular body comes with a cost, however; this breed requires a good amount of activity.

If you are considering getting a dog as a protection animal, the German Shepherd is a great choice. Owning a dog is a big responsibility, but the benefits of companionship and protection can be well worth the effort. If you are ready to own a dog, maybe a German Shepherd is the right one for you.

Security is always a concern. There is no finer companionship and security then a well trained protection dog. There is no better provider of this type of dog than Wayne Simanovich. He knows what he's doing. Our dogs are big part of our family.
