From the beginning, domesticated dogs were meant to serve as protection. We all want to keep our homes safe and one of the best ways is to do that is by having a dog. In Utah, we like to think we’re pretty safe, but the added measure of protection a dog can bring will definitely put your mind at ease. Many dogs will instinctually act as home guardians, but here is a list of the top breeds that are known to possess the characteristics that are necessary to ward off intruders.
This breed is known for its physical strength, protection instincts, and extreme family loyalty. This dog will use its strength to knock an intruder down, but is very docile in home environments so your kids and your home will always be safe.
If you have a large area in Utah that needs protecting, the Doberman Pinscher would be perfect for the task. These dogs are extremely fast and can reach an intruder in a short amount of time. They are also extremely loyal and are known as the fifth smartest breed in the world.
Rottweilers were originally bred as cattle protection dogs. They have a natural protective instinct and are relentless when it comes to protecting their pack.

German Shepherds are confident and fearless. They are also extremely intelligent and are quick to learn commands. They also have thick fur perfect to withstand Utah winters. They have a calm demeanor when in a home and are very good with children, but they are quick to react when their family or home is threatened.
These dogs are strong and powerful and require strict training as well as a lot of attention. They are powerful and intimidating, and their extreme family loyalty and alertness make them excellent guard dogs.
