Not a barker by trade but will stand his ground and stare down until compliance. Waits for command then training takes over.

Lab mix. He would growl-bark (hard to discribe starts as a growl and ends in a deep guteral bark) if out of his crate. Not sure what he would do at night if crated. I have had a couple of people think he was going to kill them. The first time he did this was when the father of one of my son's friends came to the door to get the kid. The second time was when the A/c Guys came to replace the outside A/C unit and and the "A frame" unit in the inside unit; the guy was flat afraid of him! The other part of this is Bear was home alone with my son and I think in "guarding" mode. I guess he as done it other times which allows me to know that some one he does not know is around the house.

Jack Russell/Beagle mix that's 40 pounds of love you to death and a 5-pound Chihuahua/Min-Pin that hates everybody except me and the wife. Neither will scare anyone away but both will let us know if someone is at the door.
I have a 3 yr old male Golden Retriever. LOL ... he's afraid of his own shadow. I know this because he barks at it. Guard dog no, watch dog yes. He definitely has a "big dog" bark. He lets us know when anything strange is happening around the house. Lord help any mallard that waddles through the living room. Great hunting retriever.
I feed him anyway.

I have a PITA beagle. He will bark at anything that moves, with a scent, looks/smells/tastes like food, trees, door bells, or the sound of leaves falling.
I have a two year old Labradoodle. She barks whenever someone comes by the house but runs away if strangers try to approach her. She is silly.

This is my boy. He's a Donovan Pinscher. The breed was created as a working dog by a man of the same. The video was taken about 5 years ago when he was a year old. I'm the guy in red.
He's an excellent watch dog. I've don't know what kind of guard dog he is as he's never been in a real fight, but i'm pretty confident in his training.

A Schnoodle...he was 24 hrs away from euthanasia.
He is way cool, and lets you know when something is up.
Had all of the big fad dogs growing up (dobes, pits, etc.)...no big deal...
Plus, I used to actually play a game called "dare the dog" when I was a kid...it involved jumping the junkyard fence, and the guy with the biggest bragging rights was the one who dared to get the furthest from the fence...leanred how to both soothe, and subdue an angry dog...no matter how 'savage' they are...plus, learned more after growing up.
A dog that will sound the alarm is good enough 4 me.
ALso, be aware...many police officers will tell you when they roll up a burglary suspect, they often have a pack of hot dogs or lunch meat in their pocket...
