When you have never trained a dog before, the thought of dog training may seem intimidating as well as exciting. Of course, there is a lot of excitement associated with it but you have to do your homework before commencing the training. Otherwise things may not turn out the way you expected them to.
First of all, you must know what breeds make very good watchdogs. Seek professional assistance if you have to and if you have a very busy schedule, it would be wise to outsource the training responsibility to a professional entirely. Even if you cannot find or afford a guard dog breed, there is nothing to worry. Dogs that are friendly in nature can make good protection dogs with the right training. After all, noticing something wrong is an inherent quality of dogs.
Keep in mind that living with the breeds that make good guard dogs can be difficult. They have very high levels of drive, intense desire to work and are very assertive. Their behavior could be challenging even. If you want to train them thoroughly, prepare a routine for the dog to follow. There are some clubs where สอนตัดขนสุนัข is encouraged.

If you have adopted a grownup dog, training it would be a bit difficult than training a puppy. However, it is not impossible. Talk to the dog’s previous owners. Find out how well the dog performs as a protection dog. If you have adopted a puppy, spend time with its parents before taking it with you.
Regardless of age, some dogs are not satisfied by being only guard dogs. They feel there is more to do and if not given enough tasks to carry out, some of them can be very excitable. This is not a good thing for a protection dog. Another negative aspect of their character is predatory aggression. Not all guard dog breeds have this aggression in their nature but some do. Watch out for signs that hint this aggression.

Consult a reputable veterinarian about which tick and flea preventative would suit your dog the most.
