This article by Massad Ayoob is not just an excellent article about dogs and protection.
It mirrors my own personal experience. I recently acquired one of these exceptional dogs. I can tell you first hand that everything in this article is true, and good advice. These dogs are amazing. They are also high maintenance. It is not an easy road to raise and train these wonderful animals. It is, however, worth every minute and dollar spent. My protection dog is a German Shepherd and he continues to amaze and delight me on a daily basis. I could not ask for a better companion and protector. And he is my 5 year old granddaughters best friend. I would highly recommend a protection dog to anyone who is truly serious about home and personal defense. Just be prepared for a very large personal commitment.
