Qualities of family dogs are different that qualities of guard dogs and sometimes a family dog is not a good guard and vice versa.

If you are looking for a family dog, you can choose good family dogs based on three major factors. Temperament. This is the dog’s personality. You should be looking for an agreeable temperament. For instance, a calmer dog has the ability to form strong bonds and be a great companion for your kids. The second factor is size. Size should be looked at in relation to both temperament and energy level. Some larger dogs tend to be docile, while some smaller dogs can be excitable. And the last factor is energy level. This is a matter of preference for your family. Be realistic about the lifestyle you can provide to a dog that needs more exercise than average. If you can’t meet a dog’s needs, his excess energy can lead to behavior problems down the road.

On the other hand, guard dogs must be agressive. Aggressive behavior, however, is not the only characteristic of a good guard dog. In fact, it does not necessarily play the largest role in guard dog selection. When choosing a puppy that will one day fulfill the role of backyard guardian in your home, keep the following characteristics in mind: moderate aggressiveness, alertness, intelligence, dominance and loyalty.
