Yes, Afghan Hounds are good Guard Dogs. Their temperaments make them attentive and cautious, leery of new acquaintances, and steadfastly loyal to their masters. It appears that the females take on a more protective role than the males. Huge size and an extremely loud bark is enough to deter burglars.

Afghan Hounds as Watch Dogs?
It is the typical one-person or one-family dog in Afghanistan. It is unlikely that you will find this hound eagerly awaiting your guests. Instead, he is most likely to anger them by ignoring them. However, it is not a good watchdog, even though some breeds of hounds might bark once or twice when a stranger enters the home.
Are Afghan Hounds Aggressive?
In the Afghan Hound, there is no aggression, but the dogs can tell the difference between strangers and friendly companions, and when that happens, they will let loose with a vicious bark. However, when they get to know you, they are friendly dogs. They have a casual demeanor, but they clearly want some alone time, so it’s best to allow them to be. Afghan Hounds display their familial love in a childlike way, sort of like clowns. In general, strangers are standoffish and hesitant around each other.
Afghan Hound Background
Background Analysis of the dog’s DNA revealed that the Afghan Hound is an ancient breed, likely tracing its roots to one of the first dog breeds known to exist. The Sight hounds are an ancient breed of domestic dog, as well as one of the first to be bred and popularized in the modern era. Afghanistan was the go-to destination for nomadic tribes. In the dessert and mountain regions, they also used hawks to hunt. Between 1914 and 1918, Afghans nearly disappeared from the face of the earth. They went completely underground and remained hidden only in a few places. Afghans today are largely descended from a group of people who were brought to Scotland from the desert regions of Afghanistan in the early 20th century. The American Kennel Club (AKC) awarded this breed recognition in 1926 with the Afghan Hound Club of America (formed in 1937) serving as the Kennel Club of Afghanistan.

Family and Bonding
Afghan Hounds form a strong attachment to a single person or a whole family, and sometimes both. They’re also known for being extremely independent. The Afghan Hound is a loyal pet, but it’s not likely to be as dependable as a Lab. The vast reservoirs of energy in these dogs means they prefer to be alone in the backyard running it all out.
Because the Afghan hound’s size and it’s very loud bark makes it an excellent guard dog for the family, When they want to be, they are awake and aware. The powerful bark will serve as a warning to keep others away. In my opinion, I think that if there was an intruder, he or she would definitely think twice about breaking in.
