A dog that respects their owner will naturally defend them. This is achieved through the maintaining of a clear hierarchy between the dog and the owner. This is sometimes seen by how some dogs might hump the leg of a female owner. Although cute, it displays that the dog believes he has certain dominance over the owner, and therefore has the right to hump her leg. Bull dogs, specifically, are more prone to being vicious, which is why people tend to use them as guard dogs. But this can be also looked upon as your own life being put at risk with a vicious animal in your company. Pit bulls have been known to turn on their owners. For this reason, if you are considering having a pit bull as a guard dog, professional training is definitely required to make sure a proper owner-animal relationship is established between you and your pet. Any good and loyal pet will mimic their owner's every move, so when training the dog, you have to be very confident of what you are setting out to do, otherwise you will not build a strong bond of confidence with your dog. Proper obedience training is the best way forward, establishing a verbal command between you and your pet - this is done by action and reward. Have treats ready, so that when the dog does something right, you can reward them with a treat. This way, the positive feelings from treats are linked with the action and command. The intonation of the words can also affect the reaction from the dog. For example, some commands are better said in a very low whisper, to draw the dog's attention to the command more. This way, the tonality may indicate fear or worry from the owner.
I live in the uk and own 2 pitbulls Brother n sister they are brilliant Guard dogs... But I have not had to train them to protect, I have always treated them well and and in return they are very loyal to me and are willing to protect me and my family and property.. So I would advise you just to treat the dog how you would expect to be treated and you will find that the dog will find it has a 2nd nature, that been to protect its master..
At nite walk your dog around you backyard and when your dog hears a noise he will look at the direction of the noise so when he does give him a hot dog. And slowly he will know what to do
Yall are all dumb. Pit Bulls are born protective and territorial. They will naturally protect there owner. As far as making it meen there is no sense in it. If you treat the dog right it will protect you,. If you don't it may turn on you to. Also females are more protective then males.
Ive had rotts before and pits are actually better guard dogs give it some time and when you hear something n your dog is around you, say with a very concerned voice what is it girl what is it make her notice your concerned voice and if she react to the noise give her a treat and pet her . But then again her old owners might have turned her into a real wimpy dogg already
A dog that respects his/her owner will naturally defend them but obedience training is a good idea.
When you first get your dog don't let no one touchi him or her andu getsomeonethe dog knows toact like there hitting you thatshow I trained my dog I think its the best thing to do
I have a beautiful girl pit that is about 4 months old. I want her to be protective of my kids and us. But. I'm afraid that I'm spoiling her to where she wont do that. I treat her like my kids and she copys my every move. Even when I go to the bathroom she sits at my feet. Am I goin about this the wrong way???
Pit bulls have a bad rap from people like you. The dog will automatically protect its home and master. Making an animal vicious should be against the law. If planning on being an irresposable pet owner than you had better be prepared for the lawsuits you will get when your dog bites someone or worse. I have friends with pitbulls and stronger breeds and all of them are very friendly. Maybe you should move to a better neighborhood where crime and violence aren't so high.
Yo fags gottta stfu what if we just want a fkin gaurd dog and we happen to have a pitbull if he asked how to make my rotwiller a gaurd dog I wouldnt see your retarded fkin comment
Pitbulls arent the right dog for guard dogs,,,mayb you should try a rottie dobberman or german shepherd pitbulls arent bred to be aggressive to humans my pits are more dog aggressive than anythign.
You should NEVER get a dog for the sole/only real purpose of being a guard dog. They are not security systems, they are living beings in need of social interaction. Shame on you!
