What Are The Top 3 Territorial Dog Breeds

Bull Mastiff

An alpha mix between the Bulldog and the Mastiff; the Bull Mastiff is incredibly loyal and supremely protective of his family. Though he loves nothing more than to spend time with people he knows, naturally, he wary of strangers. His impeccable physical attributes and bold personality is intimidating and dangerous for intruders. Therefore, regarding the situation, you will need to closely monitor any introductions of new people; you need your dog to know the difference between friend and foe.

Doberman Pinscher

This slender and athletic dog was bred from the Rottweiler, Greyhound and Terrier breeds to create a slick but equally loyal working dog. Personalities are very well known to differ between individuals but the Doberman Pinscher stands above others in such a list because it is also known as the fifth smartest dog in the world. While his cleverness is a asset that demands daily nurture and effective interaction, as well as proper training, the bond which is possible to form with these dogs is immeasurable. He will fearlessly protect his family by those who he sees as a threat.


The over characterized long white fur of a Komondor shapes him in the appearance of a sheep although it is his instinctively protective trait which has made him more applicable for the role of sheep herder. This dog flourishes in an active lifestyle where his intelligence is tested often and challenged routinely. Along with his loyalty and courage, the Komondor will show his devotion to you by keeping an eye out for anything or anyone who may disrupt his territory.

Like all dog breeds, their behaviors strongly represent their level of training. Be sure to do your research and train your dogs as best as you possibly can.
