Thanks. It takes a lot of effort and hard work to keep them looking this good plus they stay with me in the house. Look a Mastiff or Neo mastiff were basically ment for sitting at the doorstep of the castle or house and not allow stranger etc into the house or castle. They are not that active a breed, but are very good at guarding.On the other hand, a Rottweiler will patrol and guard the property. Guarding comes naturally to these dogs.
The important thing to note here is that these dogs are not recommended for first time dog owners, as they can become dominant and very aggressive if not trained and socialised properly and can do a lot off damage to anyone including its owners if not trained and socialised properly. They are unlike other breeds that you train once and thats it. These breeds need constant training and reinforcement. They are not dogs to be left on the percy of servant, or left outside the house without love and care, etc.
My dogs stay with me inside the house and are reguraly trained and socialised and hence are a pleasure to have. That is why I have had Rottweiler for the last 20 odd yrs in my house.
It may sound easy to train and socialise dogs but actually it is not and I once again will not advise you for these breeds in the begining. If you are still adament and think you can handle it then go in for a female Rottweiler or Neo mastiff and get a trainer from the begining, who does not hit dogs to train them.
Another thing you should think about is the purpose of the dog. Is it guarding or watchdog. They are two different things. If you want a dog that will bark at strangers or do you want a dog who will attack starngers. Just a dog barking can be scary for most people. Stray dogs if you dont mind are excellent guard dogs and very hardy. I have personally kept some at my farm in UP.
Bhopal is a hot place but if you can provide proper cooling in summer and care, I would suggest go for a German Sheperd. They can be easier to train as compared to the above breeds or a Great Dane. But remember with any large breed, training and control is a just otherwise you or any one else can get hurt badly. Its not a joke or being macho, its a responsibility and liability.
