Top ten intimidating dogs
Bringing a guard dog into your home does come with a whole lot of extra responsibility though.
A guard dog, loosely defined, is one that protects property and family (sometimes called family watch dogs or protection dogs).
Contrary to popular belief, small size doesn't necessarily an apartment dog make — plenty of small dogs are too high-energy and yappy for life in a high-rise.
Being quiet, low energy, fairly calm indoors, and polite with the other residents, are all good qualities in an apartment dog.
And, though it’s dangerous to suggest this, certain breeds are more prone to thick-headedness than others. They might make a fun and devoted family pet, but beagles are consistently ranked among the least trainable dog breeds. Unfortunately, their intelligence level is more along the lines of a Tauntaun. I wouldn’t call one of these dogs dumb to their face, but let’s just say that intelligence isn’t the standout trait for this breed.The muzzle is long, and so affords the leverage for an extremely strong bite.The Doberman stands on its toes (not the pads) and is not usually heavy-footed. Traditionally, the ears are cropped and posted, and the tail is docked. Dobermans have markings on the chest, paws/legs, muzzle, above the eyes, and underneath the tail.If your dog is one of these breeds, don’t get mad at me!Instead, console yourself with one of the following points: Even dogs of the same breed can have widely varying abilities. After all, dumb dogs can be just as cute, funny, and lovable as smart ones.
