A Rottweiler makes a good guard dog because the dogs are gentle and loyal protectors. The breed is known for being territorial.
The German Shepherd is a popular breed that is exceptionally trainable, family-friendly, and naturally excellent at protection. Other options include Great Danes and Boxers.
Every year, about 4.5 million dog bites occur in the U.S., according to the CDC.
The list of dogs that bite most, according to PuppyLoverNews.com, includes chihuahuas, pit bulls, German and Australian shepherds, cocker spaniels, Jack Russell terriers, Pekingese, Papillions, Lhasa apsos, bulldogs and bull terriers.
Big dogs have a stronger bite. The jaws of a Doberman pinscher, German shepherd, pit bull and Rottweiler have more power behind their jaws than a tiny dog. Plus, big dog bites are reported more often than small dog bites.
