anyone got any ideas on this? I know Rotts and Shepards and whatever are popular but those are big and eat a lot. A big dog runs a good chance of getting shot the first time it finds a real predator and then all that training, feeding, rearing is lost forever.
Anyone think that running beagles or some other breed might work as a sentry system? I can feed at least four 13 inch beagles for the cost of one larger dog. I'm thinking a dozen beagles to three shepards or Rotts in terms of cost and upkeep. Mine is a good sentry for four legged intruders.
I don't need the dog to attack. It'll just die in the process. I want my dog(s) to harass from dense cover and raise a loud rukus.
