Not much protection against bears with lapdogs or bagdogs.
"The term Bandog (also known as Bandogge) originated around 1250–1300 in Middle England, referring to a mastiff type dog that was bound by a chain during the daytime and was released at night to guard against intruders."
"Early incarnations of the Bandog probably had bloodlines from bull baiting dogs and the Guardian Mastiffs or the cross of both like the war dogs used in the Crusades."
I think those dogs are no good for company. I prefer people.

"Variations involved other animals being baited, especially bulls. Bull-baiting was a contest which was similar to bear baiting in which the bull was chained to a stake by one hind leg or by the neck and worried by dogs. The whipping of a blinded bear was another variation of bear-baiting. Also, on one curious occasion, a pony with an ape tied to its back was baited; a spectator described that "...with the screaming of the ape, beholding the curs hanging from the ears and neck of the pony, is very laughable"."
