American Pit Bull Terrier
Also known as a Pitbull
, Pit, Pit Bull, Staffordshire Fighting dog, Bull Baiter dogs, The Irish name of Old Family Dog, The Yankee Terrier, and the Rebel Terrier.
Pit Bulls are quickly recognized as being a powerful breed with the solid brick like head which stands out between the cheeks with a powerful jaw. Well trained and groomed, Pit Bulls are thick muscled with well sprung chests. Although stocky and bulky, Pit Bulls are considered to be agile. Although the Pit Bull Terrier has a strong desire to please, it is often misunderstood and evoke more response be it fair or unfair. By no means are these dogs anti-human. They do have a natural aggressiveness to other dogs and animals, but not toward humans. The Pit Bull is a good natured and amusing at times, and for sure a very loyal pet. The Pit Bull is also highly protective of his owners and property. Although misunderstood, a properly raised and trained dog will coexist well with children and will have a high tolerance for child's play. Proper training is essential when the Pit Bull is a puppy. The dog must be taught respect and understand it's role. The Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan is a great source of reading for training a Pit Bull Terrier.
To guard and protect your property, many dogs can be considered. The top dogs for protection in no specific order are the Thai Ridgeback, German Shepard, Neapolitan Mastiff, Bullmastiff, Doberman (females are more suited), Rottweiler, Fila Brasileiro, Ca de Bou, American Bulldog, Cane Corso, Tosa Inu, Akita Inu, Giant Schnauzer, Belgian Shepards, American Bulldog, Dogo argentine. The American Pit Bull Terrier does not have natural guard dog instincts, however the mere presence is a deterrent to intruders and burglars. A Pit Bull will generally threaten the intruder by it's mere presence and it's sometimes misunderstood demeanor. The intimidating appearance of the Pit Bull makes it a solid protection dog in particular if trained to attack.
All of the dogs and breeds noted are considered to be excellent choices. The bottom line is the training the dog has had. Temperament and breeding lines are also a major factor in separating superior guard dogs from your run of the mill junkyard dog. Loyalty to the owner is also a major factor. There are differences between a guard dog and a watchdog. A watchdog does just that. He alerts others if an intruder is present. Watch dogs are usually your smaller toy type breeds who yelp more than anything. These dogs are effective as watchdogs as their sole purpose is to alert the owners by barking. In many cases, a watchdog is no match for a guard dog who can be trained to restrain an intruder or become an attack dog. One thing to consider when using a trained attack dog is that in many cases and states, a trained attack dog is considered a weapon and laws regarding attack dogs are strictly enforced. Attack dogs can also be trained to attack upon command. Dogs are naturally wary of strangers. Guard dogs will ultimately perform based on many factors, once of which is the dogs ability to handle stress. As mentioned, there are many quality guard dogs, a Pit Bull is quickly recognizable and commands the respect of any stranger. A trained Pit Bull will both guard and protect your home, in many instances through intimidation alone!
