Basset Hounds are not protection dogs. If you want a family dog that will also be a watch dog - ie: alert family to people or animals on the property - then the Basset Hound works for what you want. But if you want a dog to physically protect your family through barking/biting/charging, ect; the Basset Hound is not the dog for you. Contact your local Personal Protection Trainer that can give you some idea's on what you want. On average, unless you train the dog yourself or pay someone to train your dog, most Personal Protection Dogs are German Shepherds, King Shepherds, Shilo Shepherds, Belgian Malinois, or Dutch Shepherds.
