I have not tested my current labs. I haven't really initiated a test on any of my previous dogs, but they were tested by the real thing a couple of times.
My last yellow lab was really aggressive and seemed to always be in condition yellow....no pun intended. She was a great watchdog. Quite a few times she would hear stuff at night and alert us to the presence of 4 and 2 legged varmits. She was the early warning system to allow us to get the Mossberg or Glocks into play.
As for testing, good idea, but I would want to know when my tester was going to show up and perform the test. I'd hate to think aww its my cousing doing the test only to find out its a meth head in my kitchen instead.

I like that they added the teasing part. I HATE when people tease other people's dogs.

I told the one that was on the ground that if I ever saw him doing that again I was going to let the dog out to chase him (my dog was a sweetheart and anybody that has ever had a St. Bernard knows their mentality, but for someone that doesn't know they just see a 100# plus dog chasing them). Obviously I wasn't really going to let my dog out to get him but it did the trick, I never saw those kids again and the crossing guard that worked in front my house said that she saw them walk on the other side of the street after that.

If the show is the one with the two former thieives, "To catch a thief" I think is the name, they always "break in" when the owner is not home. I have wondered if the dog would do "a better job" if the owner was home. I had a Lab mix that if she did not know you would bark like mad, if we were home. I was told that she never mae a sound if we were away. She was also locked in a kennel if we were not home not left running the house.

She's 20LBS of pure muscle and energy. She actually tore the curtains off the curtain rod trying to get thru the kitchen window at the meter man. If you come to the front door, let me greet you first. She is only the early warning system, the alarm comes next and as you can see, the mossburg will greet you should you make it past both.

Heidi, my German Shepard mix is an excellent watchdog. She barks just like she's suppose to, in fact she starts barking before someone can even get inside, I should have plenty of time to unlock the safe and grab my 12ga if she goes crazy in the middle of the night. Course the 9mm is already handy so even if I cant get into the safe I've still got something.
When only cops have guns, it's called a "police state". Love your country, but never trust its government.
