|I definitely wouldn't be training the dog in any guarding behaviors, but it seems that just having the type of dog, or even just a big dog, is often enough to deter people with malicious intents. We would probably be moving to a kind of dangrous area and I'd feel better walking a big dog down the street then a little one.
And we would never, ever keep a dog outside. I told my hubs when we get another dog we'll have to get a bigger bed for us all to sleep on =] I was just wondering if there were any dogs that do better then others in hot climates because we might be moving to the SW, and are very outdoorsy people who like to hike and camp often with our dog. For example, I think Salukies were originally bred in a desert climate, and Rhodesian Ridgebacks because they originated in Africa, but I'm not sure of either having a higher tolerance, I'm just guessing =]
