I have Rotts on the outside and a Miniature Schnauzer on the inside. Who thinks his Ballz Klank no one gets near the exterior of the house without him sounding off. He also recognizes the various vehicles we have and he family incoming alerts when they are on approach

I only have a couple of guns and one of them, usually the one I carried that particular day, will be on the nightstand next to my bed along with a knife and flashlight - extra mags go in the drawer of the nightstand.

One dog, a Blackmouth Cur, does a decent job of alerting us to anything, but she is still not up to where my last best friend was. Spike was a Rottweiler/Chow that was the perfect friend/watchdog. Big boy, big bark, very protective. He made it to 14 years old and now we're trying to get this new girl to learn exactly what goes on at our place and where she fits in.

even if the dog only alerts with loud barking, it's still a good deterent and a good alarm system for the owner. i have owned few large breed dogs in the past that were very agressive and a gun would more than likely have been used to put a BG out of his misery after one of them had gotten hold of him!

Hidden in easy spots to get to within reach of my bed are two 9mm handguns with three extra magazines and a 22lr pistol with four extra mags. Wife has her 9mm on the night stand and an extra mag. I have four flashlights and two knives on the nightstand. I can have my AR-15 in hand in about 15 seconds and I keep seven of those magazines loaded (for the zombies, of course). The AR-22 is handy with three loaded mags. Our next home defense buys are a pump shotgun and a S&W Governor.

And let's not forget we have two big dogs that love to alert us to noises that are not normal. Man's best friend can keep the bad guys from even trying sometimes.

I don't think you can over do it.

AND, I don't think you will ever hear anyone say "The problem last nite was I had a couple of guns I didn't need"

Yeah I agree. But really one fully loaded firearm and a flashlight is all that's needed. I just sleep better with my setup

Seems to be a consensus here, dating far back in time. Dogs need us because we have thumbs , we need dogs for their heightened senses, together we have rolled through the pages of history together in a semi partnership.
Here's my two bugler/ mailman / any damn thing for the jack Russell noise, intruder detectors.

When I go to bed my carry weapon is put on my dresser next to my bed (Glock 21) and my Mossberg 500 is about three feet away from that. And I have my five year old Pitbull and my 4 month old Pitbull ready to wake me up if they hear anything. I work third shift so I sleep during the day. But when im at work my wife is home with the kids and she puts her Lc9 next to our bed when she sleeps. And the dogs will bark if they hear anything. And if all else fails she knows the combination to the safe and she could choose any weapon she wants to protect herself or my kids.
