Son had a pair of them, the bitch would kill and bury every strange dog or cat that entered their yard. Just his experience with Akita's. Cheers NC

Land of milk and honey...for s...


Buy a Smithfield or a Heeler, unless you just want to impress people.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

Too risky. A barker would be a better choice. You could get yourself a neat small dog that would either warn you or ward off some intruder. Try a Border Collie and buy a couple of pistols to have around the house.


Good advice ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Everyone's needs are different but I won't have a dog that bites. I just want em to wake me up so I can address the problem if there indeed is one.
My Mountain Cur doesn't miss a thing and acts like she'll take your arm off but shes harmless. I do however think she'd bite someone in self defense.

Yep......a watchdog's all I need.

Course it doesn't hurt if they'll hunt a little too.

Most dogs will do both to a degree given the chance.......even mutts.

Do you want it for actual guard dog duty or just for the alarm/deterrence?
