Is your dog friendly?

My little dog barks at every car door that opens and closes. He sounds so vicious however, if our home was ever robbed, our dog would hold the flashlight for the burglar as long as he received a treat.

  • Yes, our dogs are very friendly, and only on occasion does our male dog not like someone (usually a strange man). They aren't big barkers -- if they hear something odd they may just give one bark, or even worse, they will growl. Luckily they don't have any reason to do that very often.

  • I have four and they are all very sweet and friendly. I just took my stud dog into a store today(rural king) he loved meeting all the people. I test my dogs out once in a while to make sure they are not getting uppity,I touch them while they eat. They are really tolerant;)

  • She is very sweet & friendly, but she's extremely protective - strangers, roaming animals, she goes nuts til we take care of them. If the kids are outside she doesn't take her eyes off them and if they fall she barks til one of us gets to them. She loves the kids even though they're kind of scared of her (she's big!) - she hardly breathes if they're actually petting her and is so gentle if they try to give her treats.

  • My dog is very friendly, until I tell her not to be. You would never know she ever do anything except lick people. She knows how to be nice until it is time to not be so nice. The perfect mix of a properly socialized pet and capable protector. She is a German Shepherd...a product of 35 years of very careful breeding. I love her very much!

  • Yes, we actually put a chip in her. We have some neighbors we don't trust. We thought we'd better protect her, she'd probably go right up to them and just jump around like everyone else. I'm hoping w/age that will change a little bit as far as letting me know someone is roaming around the house.
