Do pit bulls make good guard dogs?

No. Pit bull type dogs are loyal, but are friendly and gentle by nature. On the other hand, pit bulls are intelligent and easy to train. However, although they could be trained to guard, it is important to understand the damage this can do. Pit bull owners and advocates battle daily to help eradicate the negative image which has been forced upon these dogs. Training them to be “aggressive” or “scary” will only do further damage.
