  • That depends on whether the intruder thought to bring biscuits with him.
  • That was a pretty hilarious find, subby. Who's a good boy? Huh? Who's a good boy? You are!

  • Most of the dogs I've had would bark up a storm if a stranger approached the house. Once they got in the dogs would usually stop. Their attitude was " Hey , I let you know they were coming now it's your problem"
  • Here's pretty much what mine would do..

    "I brought you this, you should throw it... repeatedly"
  • Dogs are the EWS that allow you to get your 12 gauge!

    /Does your dog bite?
  • My dog would make an excellent welcoming committee.
  • A few years ago I came home from a show pretty late. Got in the door and didn't turn any lights on since I was heading right to bed. Opened the bedroom door and heard the dog on the bed stand up. Took a step in and heard the low growl. I'll never forget that sound....he was ready for business and I don't think I've ever been as proud of him as I was right then.

    Had to turn the lights on to wind him down. It pissed off the wife but she understood since it was less inconvenient than having to drive me to the ER for a bite wound.
  • My dog would protect the house.

    Mine too. Expect to be tail-wagged to death!
  • If mine wasn't sleeping soundly, she'll do the bark on approach. This is her warning to those approaching that they will be licked and sniffed to death.

    /speaking of my coonhound, she cleaned out one of my electronic mouse traps the other day--setting it off in the process. Now if she'd only catch the damn mice...
  • I love the fact that the rottie proved itself to be a big ol' baby.

    Some dogs are territorial but if they are used to humans will generally not attack if the human comes into the house, even alone. In order for a dog to be a guardian it has to be TRAINED to be a guardian.
  • My pair of elite guard cats would instantly trigger your allergies by leaving a thick cloud of black, white, and tawny cat hair behind as they take station under the bed and behind the bookshelves, respectively.

    / My brave, dedicated guard cats. *sniff* I'm so proud.
  • When I was young, we had a dog that wouldn't back down from strangers until given the OK from my mother. She was the only one he'd listen to. After he got the OK, he was your best friend.
  • My dogs will bark, sniff, and drool then lead interlopers to the cat food.
  • It would be interesting to see that repeated with the woman of the house at home. My old retriever would bark and growl at people that came by the house if it was empty or I was there, but as previously stated "I warned you, now it's your problem." I always said, as long as they bring a tennis ball or a bone, the bad guys could clean out my whole place.

    With my wife in the house he suddenly became Cujo. I had to call him off me a couple times when I was sneaking in after a late flight arrival or night at work and she was asleep. That growl is disconcerting when you're halfway up the stairs and it's coming out of the dark right in front of you... He was really protective of her and more than once he went 'Meth Lab' on some creep that set off the wife's danger radar. Me? I made sure he knew I was the alpha so he looked to me for protection.
  • My dog would protect the yard with his life, however he would only attack house intruders if they knocked or rang the door bell first. If they just walk in, he will wag his tail and lick their faces. He thinks that if they knock or ring, then they are strangers, but if they come in unannounced, they must belong here. Nice logic there, doggie.
  • My dogs hardly every bark (French Bulldogs) and are friendly as hell. Lately, however, the female has been running up to me barking and growling, with full mohawk. This now happens about 2-3 times a day, even if I have been sitting quietly with her in the same room for the past hour. Soon as she sees it's me, she backs down, then 20 mins later does it again. And she can pick out a squirrel two blocks away, so it's not her eyesight.

    I'm starting to think I'm possessed or have cancer or something.

    This. Before watching the videos I figured the Rottie and the German Sheppard would be big babies. I figured if any dog actually gave the guy hell it would have been the Stratfordshire or the Papillon. Nailed the Brittany response: don't even get out of the chair...just give a "What's up?" look at the guy as he passes by.
  • He would bark his fool head off, but settle down once they scritched him behind the ears.

    Is your dog missing its nose?
  • My border collie would bark but just love them to death. My Akita mix doesn't even react well to relatives of ours who he hasn't seen in awhile and doesn't take to being startled.
  • My cats would just run and hide.
  • HighlanderRPI: Good doggie!

    No.

    My dog does the same thing. Chain of command is daddy, mommy, doggie. Chain of protection is daddy, doggie, mommy.
