I hear it all the time - my security system is my dog. 🐕
But will your dog really prevent a burglary?
The answer to this is yes....and no. And sometimes it can depend on the type of dog, and the type of burglar! The general consensus is that a bigger dog acts as a bigger deterrent - not always true! Greyhounds are large dogs, but generally not vicious, and they often won't even get off the couch to greet a new visitor!
Many burglars not only scout out the homes they are going to target, but some actually become buddies with the pets, sometimes over a few weeks of coming and going...treats can go a long way with dogs!
It's sad but also very true, and that's why it's important to make sure your security system is up-to-date and functioning properly. - 10 minutes ago
