    yard dog

    Dear teachers,

    Could you please tell me what a 'yard dog' is? Is it a dog to guard one's home or is it simply a name for any dog? I have consulted my dictionaries but failed to find the explanation to it.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: yard dog

    Yes, it means a dog that stays outside all the time, in the yard, or grounds around a house. It would normally be used to describe a dog that is used for guarding property and not a pet dog which would normally be kept inside the house
