Many "guard dog" breeders and seller focus on intimidation. Pit bulls, Dobermans, Rottweilers, and other large breeds are often haphazardly churned out of puppy mills and sold to people looking for a "scary" watch dog.

Never Buy Aggression and Fear
Many people confuse confidence with aggression, but this can be an extremely dangerous mistake. An aggressive dog will give chase and attack out of fear. This dog can become frenzied and out of control, failing to respond even to his handler. Harrison K-9® European German Shepherd personal protection dogs have been bred and trained to eliminate this issue. Obedience to the family and handler is of the utmost importance. Every client receives hands-on training on handling their dog before it is released to the family. This assures confidence on the part of the dog and the family with their new partnership.
Every year, hundreds of innocent people - especially children - are victims of severely disfiguring bites from aggressive "guard dogs" chosen for their intimidation factor, not their character, intelligence, and careful education.
On the other hand, a trained K-9 will always turn to his handler/family for command and control before reacting. A confident dog will chase and attack only on command, or if his handler or himself is physically attacked first. A confident dog is never frenzied, and can be called off immediately and without question. All these skills are demonstrated with every Harrison K-9® sold.
For a family watch dog we have found that the best dog breed for protection displays confidence and courageousness, making the European German Shepherd the undisputed champ.
The European German Shepherd is the most universal working dog bred in the world today. Working dog competitions specifically test for the most desirable qualities for which German Shepherds were originally bred. While the competition and conformation of dog sports has been opened up in recent years to permit other breeds to compete for titles, few other breeds have been able to demonstrate consistency at the level of the European German Shepherd.
Obedience, willingness, and reliability are at the heart of the European German Shepherd. These traits in addition to decades of structured breeding and evaluations, are what make them capable of earning top recognition. The European German Shepherd is well known in the working and conformation world as the top breed and the best of the best. Other breeds just fall short in one area or another. As a individual looking for the best protector and family companion even considering another breed for the safety of your family is settling for less.
