Red or Blue healers are mid size dogs that are half dingo great in the house and wilderness and will alert you to any thing and wont back off from any thing. I have one.

My girlfriends grandmother has a 110lb german shepherd. The a good dog once he knows you. Wont let any one in the yard if he doesent. Hes also a very obediant dog. Hes never on a leash and the yard is all his. Wont bark or go after any one unless they cross onto the driveway.

Rotties and a Miniature Schnauzer make up my early warning system.... Rotties give visual deterrents, tend not to socialize bark with other dogs, and have a big throaty boom when they cut loose.

The Mini Schnauzer walks around and thinks hiz Pelotas clank like Hells Bells...He has a warrior heart, can sense when a family member or friend is coming before the rest of us come to the same realization. And if anything comes near or into the house little King Leonidas lets them know "This IS Sparta!"

Both these breeds are lovable, protective, loyal family members

if a person can have one, then a large dog outside is always a good deterent. and it doesn't have to be aggresive either. someone meaning ill intent doesn't know if the dog is aggresive or not and if it's large enough, they generally don't want to risk finding out.

a dog on the iside of the house is a good deterent if it's a barker. if a person again is meaning ill intent and they hear a barking dog within the house, they have no idea as to whether it's large or small or aggresive or passive.

i know of people that have large aggresive dogs, that if their home was wide open and nothing locked an were gone for a couple of days, they would more than likely return to find things just as they left them!

having a barking dog is just another good source of warning and protection. i have found the more i spoil mine, the more protective of us they are. they love getting attention and treats!

For us, we have four dogs. The Miniature Schnauzer is the one who starts the barking. Then the others follow. Our Great Dane's bark I imagine would be terrifying to someone breaking into our room in the dead of night.

Plus she's huge. One of the sweetest dogs I've ever had, and I have almost no confidence she will attack someone if needed, but she's physically huge and her bark matches. Definitely intimidating. A perfect early warning system.

Let's see... I think a picture is in order...

The brown medium sized one is a German Shepherd mix, to give you some sense of the Dane's size.

Most any dog should work well, even those who bark at anything. I had a dog which barked at most things, but his tone changed dramatically when there was an intruder and everyone immediately knew it! Unfortunately this particular intruder happened to be a new mailman... Didn't hurt him but he did pin him to a wall outside the front door and shredded his pant leg. Anyway, the sound of your dog barking at the neighbor kid and barking, snarling and ripping into a bad guy are very distinct.

Agree 100%. I've got a Red cattle dog and he's a good alarm system as even people walking out on the street raise either the hackles or he growls/ barks and he's always in the backyard.
During the day if we're at home he'll lick you to death or want to play but at night or when we're not home he's a different dog.

These are fiercely protective and loyal to their "family" and their reputation here in Australia is such that even 1 that is a complete ***** has that "reputation" behind it of being an aggressive breed.

The best ones ive had are my current ametican bull/ pit mix and a great dane. Ive seen people cross the street to walk by my house lol. The dane sounded like a train comming down the hall way and when he hit the door the whole house moved alittle. He could look at you over the privacy fence too. His bark would scare people away long before they even seen him.

My Akita has a very unsettling bark and she is about 90 lbs. I know I wouldn't chance it if I didn't know her. Plus she rarely barks, so when she does the pistol comes out.

My Shepard/chow/pit mix also nasty bark and has an attitude to match.

The wife's Pomeranian is quite the early warning system, I swear when she is barking she is saying to the other two " hey guys I heard something!!! Go check"

+1! I have a blue heeler. He will bark at people walking down the sidewalk (it's about 15 yards from the fence). He will defend anyone he knows. He's loyal, obedient, and protective.
