My Old English Mastiff at about 18 months of age. Not overly aggressive, but a great early warning system. One "WOOF" from her will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck.

Lol...that's no lab.

That's what I meant by "lap" dog. 100# German Shepherd

Good watch dog for sure....but dumb.
My neighbor's dog is the same way. A large, black hound who charges the fence barking at anyone who approaches. Used to do that to me as well when I walk by or out doing the lawn. The owner is an old woman who has trouble controlling her so she's kept mostly behind a chain fence.

One day I got fed up with it and just got a small bag of dog biscuits to keep it occupied. After tossing it a biscuit a couple of times, she continued to come charging up to me, but with her tag wagging and begging/whining for a treat. Now she loves me and the kids. Gets along real well with my little dog as well. Happy to say, that really made our relationship with our neighbor.

Dogs are just better than people.

The last batch of next door neighbors moved into town from the country. (Small town)
They had a lab that was a great farm dog. His problem was he thought I was an intruder when I'd go out in my back yard.

So I first asked the owner if it'd be ok to give the dog a treat once a day.

The owner thought it'd be ok.

So every time I came out into the yard and the dog barked, I'd say "Bad Dog! No Biscuit." If he didn't bark, I'd say "Good Boy" every time and give him a milk bone once a day saying "Good Boy".

Didn't take him long to figure it out.

Got to the point that when I'd come home, that dog would be in the shade on the east side of the house and come tripping over to the west side where we bordered, sit patiently and wait for his milk bone. And quit barking at me every time I was out.

Heard him barking like mad one day. Stepped out and there were two utility guys from the city checking gas lines. He wouldn't let them into the fenced yard. Being a small town, I knew them and offered to hold the dog while they did their check. They were a little dubious until I let myself into the yard, told the dog "Sit" and when he sat, handed him a milk bone and clipped a leash on his collar. (I sometimes looked after him when owner was away). The utility guys did their thing and left the yard. I unhooked the dog and joined them outside. They both commented that they were glad I was there as he acted like he wanted a piece of them. I told them it wasn't an act.

He'd learned wife and I were part of his people and no longer barked at us. Utility guys on the other hand are considered intruders.

Maybe if you do the "Bad Dog, No Biscuit" routine with your neighbors dog, it'll learn to hush.

My wife and I feel really well protected by this guy.

I thought that we were going to have to put him down when all of the neighborhood kids started to disappear. But we started feeding him more and he calmed down. Eight lb. of sheer terror!

1911MKIV,

I like the pictures of Charlie. His expression makes him look like he is considering which part of you would taste the best.

We have a GSD named Rudi who is momma's boy and protector since my wife has cancer and now disabled and home alone when I'm at work. He loves kids and is a great pet but puts up with no funny business. There have been a couple of salesman that came to the door that wouldn't take "no" for an answer until my wife asked if they really wanted her to open the door with the snarling dog looking at them through window next to the door. They quickly decided to move on.

Dogs are great to have around and I know Rudi would lay down his life to protect the family. When we're at our place in northern Michigan in the boonies, he follows the grand kids and keeps a close eye on them.

So far he is the only rodent that I have encountered in my house to date.

Ha, ha I could tell it looks VERY much NOT like a Lab, but I didn't dare write something like:

"I'm 53 and have owned dogs since I was 16. Many times more then one at a time, and that is NOT a lab on the picture!!!"

Just don't mess with a mans best friend so if you say its a lab its a lab

Well he is going for the leg (always) when he decides him self. When ordered to attack he goes for the gun hand (if no gun just the hand he likes best).

I agree and support the OP post. I have 3 yappers who alert my family any time a person approaches our house. Although annoying to my wife, I feel much better knowing that our loyal dogs have that instinct to alert us when non-fmaily members are nearby.

My homeprotection is a German Shepeard (trained as a army K9). No one can get near my house with out my dog telling me. He is backed up by my two hunting labradors (black = the mother. Yellow = son).

My dogs are like a constance burgleralarm. No matter if they are in the house, outside the house, in the car or if I'm camping.

Even a small "PET-dog" can do a difference. All you need is a warning in order to get the upperhand and "get ready"



those are wonderful looking dogs

As a tactical move. I trained my dog.

To pretend to be dead at the first sound of gunfire.
