I live a bit out on a limb and have been thinking about a guard dog (German Shepherd etc) as a deterent.
I know that if someone really wants to do it they will just poison the dog but i dont have anything worth trying that hard to nick apart from other dogs and it will put off opportunists.
I would like to know if anyone knows the actualy law on these things and if someone did break in and get bitten in my property where i would stand.
Would i be better training the dog as a 'protection' dog and therefore acknowledging that it could be dangerous but seen to take steps to mitigate or just basic obedience and claim its a pet?
Lastly, does anyone know where i could get a pup?
