04 Oct Adopt a Dog for Home Security
Not everyone needs the kind of professional security services Alpha 3 provides in South Florida. In fact, we’d be willing to bet that for most of the people living in Broward County, security guards would be an impractical way to enhance their home security – to say the least.
Thanks to advances in technology, homeowners have a variety of options when it comes to home security these days. You can install a home security system yourself, complete with a video doorbell, or have a home alarm company wire your whole house.
But, in honor of Adopt-a-Dog Month, we would like to remind you of a wonderful old-school form of security that can’t be beat.
Stay Safe with Spot at your Side
If you talk to law enforcement and security professionals, they’ll tell you that having a dog is one of the best ways to protect your home from a break in. Even burglars say that hearing a dog barking is enough to keep them away!
How do you know what kind of dog will provide the best security for you and your family? House Beautiful recommended that readers get an Akita, Bullmastiff, Doberman Pinscher, German Shepherd or Great Dane. They are all wonderful breeds – but some of them might keep friends and family away, too. And not everyone has room for a Mastiff or Great Dane!
Fortunately, the experts all agree that the best dog you can get if you’re interested in your family’s security is a dog that barks. Don’t worry about getting a big dog with a pedigree, head over to the local shelter where you’re sure to find a dog that would offer lots of love as well as security.
American Humane has been celebrating “Adopt-a-Dog Month®” since 1981 in an effort to help the estimated 3-4 million animals waiting in shelters every year get the loving, forever homes that they deserve.
They offer some wonderful resources on their website that can help whether you’re adopting your first dog or bringing home yet another to add to your family, including:
- Is a Dog Right for You?
- Shelters and Rescue Groups
- Choosing a Dog Collar
- House Training Puppies and Dogs
- Kennel Cough
American Humane can also help you find an animal shelter or rescue group in your area.
