    komondorok are stubborn retard guardians that will boneheadedly protect their group, great for keeping cigs away from your stuff but not so much if you plan on ever having guests that mind the smell of dog dreads

    any pibble that wanders into your yard is a write-off though

      These dogs have a job to do, if they weren't good at it people wouldn't get them. If you want an alternative that looks pretty much the same there's Maremma sheepdogs. As always prioritize getting a good ass breeder.

        Yeah he was a massive dickhead, but I never recovered after all the quality time I spent with him. When he was gone, no other dog could possibly fill the hole he left.

          Then maybe he wasn't that bad after all?

                I have been emotionally attached to all my dogs and cats, but that doesn't mean i'm never gonna get another, that's just retarded.

    I'd recommend old English sheepdogs, they have very strong protective instincts, as my sons found out whenever they fought and she would bowl them over by running into them and nocking them over. they also tend to be very energetic and playful dogs that crave companionship whilst still being able to function independently.

        depends, some dogs adore it when you brush them others cant stand it, Mine I just had to keep short because the fucking hated being brushed, but from the size of them I can see it taking hours to fully groom them. it took me physically sitting on her for an hour just to shave her never mind grooming

    there was once an anon that really liked having a female kuvasz around

    apparently the males are too dangerous for most people to take in

      I have been looking at the Kuvasz but it wouldn't be my first choice

        remember that quality of the breeder >>>>>> quality of the breed but some things are consistent about dogs. females are more independent but less aggressive. males are more dominant towards familiar humans and universally aggressive. severe inbreeding with popular sires to produce show and dog sports winners is not the best or only way to make a good working dog.

          Primarily looking for a male since I need that extra level of aggression for guarding.
          Also not even looking at show dog breeders since I need a working dog.

            Females are more directed and purposeful if they're aggressive. Males are just testy and easily provoked. A guard dog should be able to moderate its own aggression because not everything that comes near your property is worth it. Good guard dog breeders will actually try to make all their dogs less insane, but males are usually way meaner to people. Females are just meaner to other female dogs.

              I think that depends heavily on breed and enviroment more than sex.
              I've known/owned plenty of male dogs that were more chill than females, both towards humans and fellow canines.

                statistically, more unjustified attacks are done by male dogs than female dogs, and more of those males are intact than neutered.
