Dogs can protect your home and defend you when there are dangers — well, keep it in mind — only in some cases.
Some of you may ask ”Do burglars really avoid houses with dogs”.
Check the top 5 facts below for deep insights.
Proof 1. About 34% convicted burglars surveyed said that a dog inside would change their mind before breaking into a home.
Proof 2. A report of the US Department of Justice concluded that:
”On average, burglarized homes are less likely to have dogs than non-burglarized homes, suggesting that dogs should be a substantial deterrent.”
So your big & barking dog would be an effective theft deterrent in deterring those coward burglars.
Proof 3. True stories. A great number of posters shared their stories on how their dogs protected their homes against burglars.
”When he was about 7, my mum was home alone one evening when she answered the front door to a stranger… Our dog went utterly berserk, hackles and fur raised, lips pulled back, teeth all on show, barking and growling like mad… She has no doubt that if the man had got in, or if she’d let the dog out, our boy would have attacked the intruder.”

Proof 5. Video recordings. There is a video that records how well-trained or untrained dogs protected their little owners.
