Your dog should first and foremost be part of the family. However, having a canine companion who could also fearlessly protect you and your less furry family members is not really a bad thing. While these breeds all make great protective dogs, it’s important to train them properly so that they don’t try to “protect” you from everyone.
Some dog breeds tend to pick one human to bond tightly with, and never really establish a close connection with any others. They may even be overprotective of their human, and want absolutely nothing to do with a new person brought into the equation.
Dogs have an amazing ability to capture the hearts of just about anyone. Even the most famous and wealthiest among us are susceptible to their charms. That’s why we occasionally hear about mind-bogglingly generous inheritances left to four legged heirs.
