Let’s be realistic and not expect our dogs to shield us from armed thieves. The primary use of a guard dog is to bark when strangers are around and alert you so you can take action.
“A dog ‘resting’ all day will be alert at night.”
ACTUAL RESULT : Depression and unhappiness because the dog:
a. Is lying in his own dirt
b. Doesn’t know his pack (his family) and is therefore unable to bond.
c. Lacks interaction and affection He is lonely and bored.
“A dog has to relate to a pack!” In the case of a domestic dog that’s the family or other dogs it lives with. If a dog is shut away all day, can’t see daylight or is chained up and ignored, it can’t relate to other living beings.
