nature vs nurture: training a chihuahua guard dog

I am teaching little Oedipus to hunt, because I think he would make a beware-of-dog-sign-worthy guard dog. No thief would suspect the chihuahua with huge paws until it was too late. Because of his height disadvantage, I think we'll replace "go for the jugular" with "go for the achilles, wait for the victim to fall down, then go for the jugular."

That is my ultimate goal, but we're taking baby steps. I started by rubbing old socks with hamburger and letting Oedipus chew them up. That should get him thinking along the right lines.
