Many people consider keeping a dog a good security measure, yet few home owners understand that dogs, particularly guard dogs, need training to enable them to behave appropriately. Many dog owners neglect to provide proper shelter for the animals and feed them only on left overs.
Proper care includes feeding, housing, visits to the vet for regular vaccination, treatment and parasite control (i.e. worms, ticks and fleas)

The article states that German Shepherd dogs are the best breed as they are good guard dogs and pets, but we at TNR Trust would like to add that our Kenyan Shepherds are great pets as well, and many of them are born with this guard dog-attitude. But, no matter what breed of dog you get, they will always need attention, food, water and training to ensure their behaviour.
