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

How my dog will react to the burglar is not the issue. It's how the burglar reacts to the dog.

God, this article is as stupid as the "experiment" where some local TV station showed that the club could easily be defeated by simply cutting the steering wheel. Took about 20 seconds with a hack saw.

What that beacon of journalistic integrity failed to mention, just like this hack job, is that 90%+ of thieves prefer to steal something quickly and quietly. Their first choice, unlocked/unattended cars, houses, etc. Once you put an obstacle in their way, they most likely move on to another, easier target.

Sure, most dogs won't attack someone who walks in your front door when no one is home (like in this article), but then they would be taking a pretty big leap of faith when they hear my two dogs barking loudly. As was said before in this thread, when that door opens slightly and you hear the growl/see the teeth, most folks will be happy to leave.

On the other hand, I'd love to see this idiot try the same thing at 2:30 in the morning, coming in through a window with his right arm un-protected. Something tells me the results may not be so rosy for Mr Schettler.

The big one would either play or hide depending on how scary the intruder was. The little one would fight. I know this because she responds aggressively even to welcome visitors while we're home. Half chihuahua, half toy fox terrier, aaaaaall attitude.

I had a basset as a teen, he was a big, floppy marshmallow. We lived 1/4 of a mile off a dirt road in the woods. One day a couple of JWs came knocking. The dog went crazy after these guys. I told them to go away, and I couldn't hold the dog back for long. once they started away, I let the dog loose. He chased them all the way down to the road barking and snarling at them. Then proudly marched back to get a cookie.

/miss that dog

Of course I want the burglar to pet my dog. Now, not paying any attention to the poor critter who's doing his darnedest to suck up - that would be rude.

You can have my stuff, don't hurt my dog.

The dog that would have bitten a stranger who walks into the house when its owner was away is probably the same dog that might bite a stranger while their owner is in the house, and is the same dog that might bite a stranger who wanders into its yard.

What I'm saying is, in a residential neighborhood, having a dog that barks but is reluctant to bite people is far preferable to having a dog that would maul the shiat out of an intruder.

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.


Well trained dogs are a good way to guard your home, just as well trained gunowners are a good way to protect against home invasion.

The problem is too many retards with rotties, pitts, and guns and not enough of the "well trained" variety.

petec: .but many will attack if a member of their pack is being assaulted..


This. My Australian Shepherd would let anyone into the house if we weren't there, but gave the 14 year old that pushed my 5 year old an arm full of holes and is loathe to let someone stand between either of the kids and him.
