I’ve got to admit that I’m a little lazy when it comes to self-defence. And by that I mean if there is another way to protect myself like buying some prepper spray or getting a taser, I will go do that instead of learning some form of self-defense combative moves.
I know many preppers swear by the fact that any prepper worth his salt will at least need to know what to do when presented with an attacker.
So I’ve decided that the middle ground is the way to go and got myself a dog; not just any dog mind you, a proven protective breed that will not only have the benefits of companionship during SHTF but will also loyally protect you when the going gets tough.
Certainly not every dog breed is suitable for the job (the last time I looked, Chihuahua is definately not on the list). Below is our list of 3 protective dog breeds for a prepper during SHTF, remember to check out the video below for the complete list of all protective dog breeds for a prepper.
3 Protective Dog Breeds For A Prepper During SHTF
1. Bull Mastiff
This breed had unusual beginning. They were breed to keep large estates free of poachers by tracking and pinning without causing harm. A neat thing to have when you think about accidental attacks on people or your homestead is in a place with high human traffic density.
2. Belgian Malinois
Originally developed in Malines, Belgium. Malinois have a great deal of stamina and truly enjoy working. That’s always a good thing to have especially if a prepper is mobile and has to get to a bugout camp some distance away. The fact that they are a very protective breed also helps.
Originally bred for traversing the border of a flock or herd to keep in the right place. The German Sheperd will naturally assume the role of a guardian of the border that it has established. A plus especially for a prepper trying to protect his property.
