Default An intruder comes into your house, what would your dog do?

Be it day or night, you are not home or are home up doing things, watching TV, having dinner or in bed asleep.
What would your dog (or and any pet) do.

Watch what happens: Dog vs intruder

First, ours is totally deaf and has one good eye. So if Indy would happen to see the intruder, he most likely would want to be friends.

Our Male V seems to have a second sense on good guy/bad guy.

He loves everyone!
But a couple of times he has placed himself in front of my wife and made her stop walking. He was growling at the approaching people (young men).
There was also a delivery person that he did not like either. Most of the time he jumps in the delivery vehicle looking for a treat.
I am confident he would alert to bad intentions. Not sure he would attack.

Our female V would lick them to death.

My hound is a lover. He would lick the wounds of the intruder after the white dog is finished with him. ............

Little shit (shiatzu) will bark his most ferocious bark and if you didn't immediately give him one of his treats, he'll eat you from the ankles on down! He ain't afraid of 100# dogs and if he doesn't know you, well, your in trouble!

My previous dog would have done exactly what I wanted her to do. And she's done it before. Had a Doberman and she really didn't like strangers. It definitely took her a bit to warm up with friends where she would no longer greet them with a growl. Of course, that was all in my presence, can't say the exact same would happen if I wasn't in the house.

Anyway, I had to travel for a bit, so my parents watched her for me. While there, my dad and his neighbor were working on something outside. Dog was inside. Neighbor came in to get something from the counter. She greeted him and began growling and snarling at him when he tried to grab the item. The neighbor had to call my dad to retrieve the item and defuse the situation.

I was handling an insurance claim this summer when I rang the doorbell. The guy had three small dogs that started barking. One went bonkers. He put two of them in a pen and let me in. He said "They don't bite", so I went to pet one which immediately bit me on the knuckles. After I pulled my hand back the guy said "Except for that one. That one bites". Thanks, but it is a little too late.

Another time I was inspecting a home without the homeowner there. They had given me permission to inspect (roof,exterior) without anyone there. I had worked my way around the front and right side but needed to go through a gate to check the rear of the house. I walked through a gate and started looking at the rear, checking it for damage. When I entered the gate I had the thought "I bet they have dogs", but it didn't quite register.

As I was inspecting the rear gutter, two dogs came out of a box that served as a doghouse. I was standing right next to it. One was a boxer the other was a pit bull. Thankfully, they were friendly, otherwise they would have eaten me up with no chance to escape. I have since started being a little more cautious when nobody is home.

If the intruder was inside, then he would be OK, because my dog would be outside, where dogs belong.

I may not be the smartest guy ... BUT I am 100% certain this test and these videos are not a good indicator of how dogs may react. Any "Dog person" knows that dogs are a amazing judge of character . I have seen the friendliest dog go ape shit at someone at my office that we later found out was a real piece of crap. I feel like this scripted guy casually walking into a house does not represent how these dogs may act if someone actually BROKE into the house with malicious intent . I know for fact when we are home anyone that comes to our house and Rex doesn't recognize the vehicle (which he does know our family vehicles) he goes absolutely nuts to protect me , wife , kids . If we let them in and he knows its all good all is well . different example ...... Halloween we get ZERO trick or treaters living somewhat in country off a main road . The other night 4 older teens in costumes stopped their car in the middle of the road and came to our door and rang the bell . Holy crap !!! dog went full blown crazy and I literally could hardly contain him enough to crack the door and tell the kids I had no candy . Say all that to say I believe if someone came to my house with malicious intent my dog would know and protect us with everything in him to do so . And also think a lot of dogs are smart enough to know if the person on the other side of the door or in the house has good intentions or bad ones and will react accordingly . Just my .02 and I may be dead wrong .
