but if you want a dog like this it takes more work and you got to get lots of experience so it doesnt end in disaster
the dogs best in civil protection ive seen dont usually have calm temperaments you leave them alone all day without work they will eat your house, again not always just from what ive seen, its a lot of work, a lot of dog, a lot will walk all over you.
for protection you got to learn how to train high
If i were you look into some strong show lines, see if you can get a really good german show line, I know it sounds like bad advice but there is the odd rare german show line i have seen with extreme bad nasty civil side, they seem more calm than a working dog but just have a really strong civil side to them. I don't know any breeders that breed for it but just seen the odd few around. The ones I saw were imports from zcech.
Look at the core temperament of the dog what his or her drives are like, make sure the parents if you can are good at it also. Some dogs are just very quick to react to a threat with a lot of aggression. Naturally.
IF you just want a dog that will act like a good gsd then any well bred dog can do.
A dog that is ready to nail someone if he or she feels threaten does not always know the meter man is a good guy lol
