These are two dogs which would be perfect for you.
Collins is huge and I'm told pictures do not do him justice. He is naturally very attentive, loves to please and is very easy to handle. If I were recommending one dog to you Collins would be the one. That said, if we did not have Collins I would wholeheartedly recommend Danny Boy. He has the oversized Akita like head that you like, and a substantial body as well. He's only medium size in height but will not look medium size in how he presents himself. Danny Boy's ability in protection is the same as Collins. The only other difference is personality. In everyday life Collins is a quiet dog by nature. His outgoing personality comes out when taken out in public, or when doing something with him. On the other hand Danny Boy has a bigger, more happy-go-lucky personality all the time. As a result of our Naked Obedience Danny Boy will be quiet and still in everyday life (part our house manners) while still being upbeat. For instance when you come home with Collins and tell him to lay down he will gladly do so and probably soon be taking a nap. If you come home and tell Danny Boy to lay down he also will. The difference is Danny Boy will also be wagging his tail looking at you hoping you invite him over to be pet.
You can't go wrong with either dog. I just put them up on our website with Collins in our elite program and Danny Boy in our executive program. The reality is we just purchased them so you can choose whatever program you would like based on training or price. It can be just Naked Obedience, Executive Protection Dog or our Elite Family and Estate Protection Dog program. The training program you choose will determine their price.
