Guard dogs are trained to be very independent. Unlike personal guard dogs, they are not prone to affectionate relationships with humans. They do not accept food from strangers and immediately alert them to their presence. These dogs are trained to guard the great outdoors and their acquisition starts at around € 11,000.
Personal protection dogs develop loving relationships with their owners and are very protective, especially with children. These are accessible from € 17,000.
