What dog can I get that is a good watch dog but still good with children?
We want to get a dog that will protect the house and the family but that will be safe for my 2 year toddler too - well, to be honest the dog will have to be sturdy and patient while my son learns to correctly handle and behave around the dog! I know that all dogs need to be properly socialized and trained but I have heard that certain breeds of dog are genetically better choices when it comes to protecting home, family and children...Any adivce?
