Do you trust your dog's judge of charactor when it comes to other people?

  • Mine loves almost everyone...with one exception. If I'm out with her alone and a male comes up to pet her, she goes ballistic. With only one exception in four years, she will not allow a man to pet her if my husband is not with us.

    If we are all out together, and she doesn't like someone, I know there is something wrong with that person.

  • yes very much so they can sense things that we cannot and sometimes they can even save lives...just like they can sense when someone is going to have a seizure or something

  • Hahahaha...well, good question because my dog loves everyone..EXCEPT, my dad and stepmom. LOL She really hates them with a passion. If they even drive up she will bark and come unglued and she tries to bite them.

    My SO and any of my sons friends...she doesn't bark, she gets in their laps and licks them to death. So, I don't know how to feel about it yet.

  • I don't think dogs really sense "bad" people at all. My mother's dogs love my child molesting uncle. They growl at random people who we know very well. They are just protecting their territory. They pretty much don't like anyone until they know them. I really think some people think way higher of their pets than the reality is.

  • I think they can tell who are good people and who are not. My dogs love just about everybody except for one of my friend's wife. She is a very negative person and they will growl at her if she comes over. They just don't like her. Anybody else and they become 75 lb lap dogs.

  • no, I think a dog is just protecting his territory. Our old dog used to growl at children in the neighborhood!

  • No, my dogs love eveyone. If a burglar came to our house the dogs would show them where everything is and offer them a cold soda to drink while they loaded their car.
