Garret Wing explains: “Born and bred to fight off lions and hyenas. It will have no problem fending your family from two-legged critters that try to break into your home.”

The Boerboel is a great choice for a protective dog because of their sharp instincts and ferocious loyalty. However, they can become easily bored and destructive if they don’t have an active routine. 

It’s also worth noting that the Boerboel has been banned from some countries, including Switzerland, France and Qatar for their aggression towards other dogs and strangers.

The Rottweiler 

The rottweiler is a safe choice of dog for many reasons.

They’re are highly intelligent, confident dogs who learn quickly the rules of the house. The are very affectionate members of the family, and very loyal too. 

Although they might not be the biggest dog in this list, they are one of the scariest according to the dog expert. 

Garret Wing explains: “The rottweiler is, one of America's well known pets but let me tell you, as a professional pet trainer and decoy who’s taken bites from hundreds of police canines, nothing gives me the chills more than a 130 pound Rottweiler barking at me from behind the fence line.

"I always pray there’s no hole in the fence," he jokes.
