Do any of your Staffies have guarding instincts? Frank has absolutely none, not even when the doorbell rings or even in the car. The only time I've heard him bark is when you play with him and even that isn't guaranteed.

No guarding instincts here.

She runs in the opposite direction when the door goes. The only time she barks is if we put the TV on slow motion, for some reason she hates things moving slow.

Yes Molly is an excellent guard dog. Runs to the window when she hears the gate and then to the door barking her head off. She sleeps in our room sometimes and if she hears anything outside at all she will let you know, only trouble is she frightens the life out of ya with her barking. Harley is copying her too lol!

Mine are fantastic guard dogs. Sometimes it can get a bit too much when they are both going mad at the doorbell but I would prefer that than nothing.
My OH used to work in a prison and the inmates used to say that they would avoid houses with dogs as they are too noisy so for that reason I dont mind at all.

Tara (my first staffie) was a fantastic guard dog as well. Jack is the only staffie I have owned who was not great, he only reacted when Chloe did and I am sure half the time he did not know what he was barking at.

Stel barks at the door, and buddys started copying. He doesnt know what his doing, he never did it before Stel came along.

Both of them have none when out, had a jogger running up behind me, both dogs off lead, he made me jump out my skin and the dogs carried on playing, didnt even look up at the guy lol!

Georgie didnt but now she does I am sure its to do with her getting older. She practically throws herself at the house door, then if all else fails sticks her head out the cat flap.

If I go to the hand car wash she goes mental at the guys cleaning the car, if she is in the garden she also has a bark too, but I only let her in the garden if I can see her.

Strange though if we are out and about like at Flyball and dogs are going mental and barking she NEVER barks EVER

They say that Staffies will let the burglar in and even help him load up the silver lol, but the minute someone does something to you or one of the family its like a different dog.

They will protect you till the death.

They are both good guard dogs, which i quite like as my boyfriend works shifts aswell so they bark if anyone comes near the door or garden. Diesel used to like barking at any animals on the tv but weve managed to stop that.
Only been at flyball once, he didnt bark but he kept whining.
