Default Dog or alarm system

How many people here own a dog rather then an alarm system?
I have always had a dog in my house and I think people think twice before
breaking into a home with a dog.

I have dogs and an alarm system and with the warning signs and the dogs I have had no problems what so ever but living in the sticks is also a plus.

Dogs, with phony stickers for alarm systems. Everybody around knows we have dogs, which are behind a privacy fence. Their barks make them sound like a couple of killers. (Ever seen a dog lick a person to death?)

I got a mutt. She's a pitbull/boxer/American bulldog mix. Got the barks of a ferocious killer, but the lick of a cow. She's friendly for the most part, but to hear her bark should deter any would be robbers.

I am sorry to hear that. I would be quite upset.

On topic, I live in a suburban area with a lab. She always barks when someone comes on the driveway. I feel no need for an alarm at this time.

Two dogs that I love dearly and a pretty high-tech alarm system (cellular comm with web/pda access, X10, e-mail notifications) that I installed myself. Next step is a couple of exterior cameras.

Both. I believe in the concept of defense-in-depth. Monitored alarm, good locks & windows, dog, locked gun cabinets (totally out of sight), and an insurance policy. Oh, and I keep my mouth shut about the guns (one of the most important security measures and surely the cheapest).

Dogs are great for when you are home. Trust a dog over an alarm but alarms are nice when you are not there esp. having fire alarm so if you house catches while you aren't home it gets caught fast.
