Q: Which dog is the best guard dog to have in an apartment setting?
I am a 20 year old female. I am moving into an apartment by myself in a new city. It is too late for me to find a roommate so I decided I need to get a dog. I cannot decide which dog would be best as a guard dog to protect me. I am stuck with either a Rottweiler or a Doberman. Does anyone know which one would be better for me?

I'd say a Doberman. Rottweilers are nasty they also have lock jaws so if you ever did get an unwelcome visitor they'd have a nasty bite that would last a long while. (Might not be a bad thing for you) But yeah i think Dobermans are easier to house train.

If you want a dog to naturally defend you then don't go for one of the true guarding breeds like a rottie. Trouble will follow if you allow this breed to think it is their job to protect you. The minute you allow an untrained rottie to stand in front of you then they have taken the leadership and will make the choices when necessary. A trained dog is a different matter but that takes thousands of dollars or pounds whatever.
DON'T GET A ROTTWEILER!

i have 3 dogs 1 is a husky malamute and she is afraid of everything because when she was young she never got socialized. But when my dad acts like hes gonna hurt me my dog is right there beside me and barks her really deep voice bark and bites him. I think she dose this because im the youngest and she thinks im "defenseless".
Get a really Big Poodle! poodles are considered the smartest dog in the world! get him/her when they're a puppy and work on training
Answer by Tommy
get 2 dogs. Get a Labrador because they will attack when they need to, but their bark is so scary and loud that it would scare away any intruder, and a German Shephard, rottweiler, doberman, which ever one of those, because they WILL attack if there is a threat

I would recommend for you a Great Dane. Yes there larger but they are great apartment dogs. First off there huge! any one would be afraid of that thing. And there loyal and great companions. (=

Before you choose a dog for an apartment, choose an apartment that will accept the dog you are looking for.
