    Heineken is my first line of defense

    This is my first line if defense. Didn't teach him a thing but he gives a low growl when he hears people pull up outside, a few short barks (meanest, loudest bark I have heard from a dog) if someone knocks or rings the doorbell, then he will come get us after assessing if they are still trying to enter, and calms immediately upon command. He's definitely the smartest dog I have ever owned. He picks up a new trick in about 3-5 tries. I feel bad for anyone if they still try to intrude after that because if he doesn't stop them, I certainly will but I doubt he wouldn't take care of business himself. Now the only thing to teach him is how to get me a beer like the dog from Shooter. Heineken.jpg

    If you have a dog that is kept outdoor never totally rely on it to warn you of strangers. While someone may be a stranger to you he may be your dogs best buddy. The guy that talks to him and brings him treats every night while you are asleep.

    Here is our "baby". She has hit 70 lbs and has a bark that will scare the bejesus out of you. If you ring our doorbell, she slams the front door with her body. I really dont know what she would do if someone tried to enter the home unannounced other than bark at them. While laying in the den with me, if she picks her head up and stares outside, know someone is moving around whether it is a neighbor or a kid walking by. If she hears the noise again, cover your ears.Maggie2.JPGMaggie1.JPG

    Show me a forum member that isn't a dog lover and I'll show you a three-dollar bill. My two lap dogs are plenty loud enough to alert me of anything near the house.

    Great Pyr, here. 150lbs of the hairiest, laziest dog you could ever encounter. That is, until someone tried to enter the wrong motel room one night. If you took "Missy," or "Liberty," and colored them white, you would get an idea. Loves his cats, though. When we get the laser toys out, for the cats, Jeep just lays on the floor and lets the cats run right over him. He is actually Jeep III

    Well no more. Thats her job and I have been trying to deter it, shame on me.

    So tonight I will be working drills with my dog, good girl when she aleerts me of something, and then teach her to relax when I control the situation.

    I know its been discussed a million times, but a dog is a great set of ears and a great alarm system. Don't take it for granted like I have been.

    My Wife does the same thing to our little rattie.... I counter it with praise and say good girl. She love it and so do I... I can't tell ya how many times I knew someone was at my front door long before the doorbell or a knock ever sounded. Heck it's better than radar; well maybe not that good, but better than my ears can muster anyway.

    Here are our two four legged alarm systems:



    Mercedes on the left is slowing down, but Mickey on the right is only about 5 and very vocal. We won't be without at least one German Shedder, er Shepherd.

    Since this thread started, I found and got my white GS. Her mother is 90 lbs and father is 120 lbs. She's 5 mo's old and as tall as I am when she stands up..... with big paws that makes her thump thump thump thru the kitchen. A real sweetheart. But, she has a bark that would wake the dead..... and that's when she wants to play. We'll see how this all goes.

    Cool

    My Max finally woke up from page 1.

    Really do not know what he would do to someone but he guards the outside from the inside and has great hearing and a doberman's bark.

    My little winnie does her best to be tough, but even her toys get the best of her....
