SundaesChild: Tat'dGreaser: Wait a minute, every single thread about guns and home protection have taught me that big dogs are the only way to guard your home.And a gun will do what for you if you don't happen to be home?
Dancin_In_Anson: My Golden would not only want to play, but for a treat she'd serve up the combination to the gun safe.
Treygreen13: How my dog will react to the burglar is not the issue. It's how the burglar reacts to the dog.

nickerj1: She actually gets whiny when she sees kids outside playing cause they're her size and she wants to go run and play and dance with them.

Skyd1v: We have 2 dogs, a big intimidating German Shepherd and a short, frumpy Bassett Hound. One day I got a letter from the scooper service that they would not be coming out anymore until we did something about our "aggressive dog" .Now, I knew the Shepherd looks vicious, but I have never once seen him act it. I gave the service a call to get this hashed out.Wasn't him. Only thing he was guilty of was pestering the scooper techs with tennis balls. But apparently every single one of them is scared to death of the Bassett. According to them she lies in ambush and goes for the back of the legs when they get close enough./has to go to doggie day camp on those days//apparently her attitude improves when she isn't on "her turf"
ha-ha-guy: It all depends, I had a malamute who was a giant baby, right up until a burglar tried to break into my house via the window right next to the crib. The dog was stabbed by the burglar's knife and needed stitches, the burglar was found by the police a block or so away, passed out behind a small shed from lack of blood (the cops just followed the blood trail).I don't care if my dog won't protect the flat screen when I'm not home, after all I have home owners insurance and I'd rather not have some dog prone to overreacting when people come onto his territory. What I do what is a dog that will fark shiat up when I'm not home, but my wife and six month old son are.Basically my malamute was unhappy about the whole "strange man comes through window next to baby" thing and the moment my wife screamed he went from unhappy to "you know what solves all kinds of problems? Biting this dude repeatedly." When no one is around, he's welcome to help the guy load the TV for all I and my 750 dollar deductible care./the day the dog came back from the animal hospital he limped over to the easy chair by the window the burglar came through, sat down behind it and locked his eyes on the window, ready for round two
FarknGroovn: kisseswookies: My dog takes that as her sign to run in the opposite direction as fast as she can.My shar-pei consistently runs away from threats as fast as possible in the completely opposite direction. If I want to see what may be in my yard all I have to do is walk directly opposite his path when he bolts.So far the list of things he consistently run from:GeeseDucksRabbitsDeer - Scary to run into these guys at 5:00 AM...Coyotes - I usually run with him on this one...Skunks - he got sprayed once. Safe to say he did not like it.PeopleHe's like a reverse tracking hound.
EatHam: meat0918: I've only ever been bit by small dogs.Big dogs warn you.
suthrnrunt: Matt Foley: tweek46420: kobrakai: Treygreen13: Husky Doberman, 85 lbs. 2 seconds of chin rubs and he will show you where we keep the valuables.103lb Doberman.... puts up a good show till you pull out the biscuit... then he'll hold the door open for you.
Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: "Hey! Hey! You! There's food in the fridge! Can I have food? Hey! You with the TV! Can I have food? Food! In the fridge! The food! The fridge! Food!"My guard critter can be defeated with 4 dollars worth of sliced ham from the grocery store.
