Home security is a crucial part of prepping and during SHTF we can’t rely on apps, CPI, ADT, or any other security system. One great option is guard dogs for home protection. Having a dog, in general, can be a good basic security system since most tend to bark when they’re alarmed. But there’s far more to security than just a barking dog.
Big dogs are especially comforting for home protection but … which breed should you invest in?
There’s no “one dog breed fits all” because it depends on what you are looking for in a guard dog. If you have a family, and especially young children, you’ll want a dog that is loyal to you and your kids. It’s a huge investment in time, money, and training, and you want to make sure both the dog and the family get along.
