My Golden is more into squirrels and rabbits, but he'll bark which is good enough for me.
She's usually behind the inside door. The drivers usually leave the packages on the porch without any trouble. This was an unusual case with both doors being open. However, unless your property is posted, I completely agree with you.
Abby the Wondemutt loves delivery drivers.
She thinks they taste delicious.
My Boy (a Blue Pit Bull, best dog I ever had by far) lost his battle with cancer two years ago.
My other Pit Bull, Whitey, has never met a complete stranger he didn't absolutely love, and he's met many people. I could turn him loose in a room full of three year olds and not look back.
Our other dog was a rescue from the pound. A strange dog, lab mix, that is afraid of everything. I mean every dam thing. Prolly abused.
Our dogs stay inside, bark incessantly, etc.
That said, when folks have come into the house or yard to check meter, fix hot tub or deliver pizza, they get no trouble from the critters. The Punta-pet can be a little snappy, but no contact.
We always properly introduce our Rottie’s to the deliver fella’s and hand them treats to give to them.
Don’t need any problems
IT's pretty simple. I keep the Jack Russell inside and leashed. Simple rules keep the elder girl safe and the younger generation safer
No, owners are responsible for controlling their dogs.
Was watching North Woods Law, about New England game wardens. One dog came roaring out of the house door which hardly had a porch of any size. Amazed that the warden didn't shoot it. He was there on lawful business and put up with that nonsense. Don
My dog is everyone's friend - until they try to walk into my yard or house, then she turns into cujo! I tried a professional trainer, but she said she's so bonded to me no amount of training will change that. She's a rescue. I adopted her at 3 years of age and have had her for 4 years now.
I wouldn't want it any other way either!
Wow...hope you have good insurance.
Like in the WWII movies I have little decals on her side:
My two sons
My daughter in law
On guy selling lawn care
Couple of guys in my VFW post
All nipped for getting too close to me. Shes getting better, but I still don't trust her around people if they interact with me.
I still love her and will be with her as long as God allows it. She will never be abondoned.
Simply stated you are an advocate of ignorance.
A bit of advice for you; you can be right or you can be happy. They wont always come together.
My dogs are rather intimidating looking, but their bark is worse than their bite and they never follow through with intimidation. Both UPS and FedEx have bribed my dogs with treats and it is nothing buy tail wagging after that. I suspect it is part of their training as it must be a daily occurrence with all drivers. USPS is a different story, as they simply stick postcards in my mailbox saying undeliverable.
Offering a dog behavior class would be awesome but the final responsibility is on the dog owner...

My dog is a pit mix on the smaller side. He looks mean and will growl at a low tone if someone comes to the door. This doesn’t bug me. When we were moving some stuff in we had the door unlocked and some drunk guy walked into our apartment mistakenly. He was going to his friends and had just gone up the wrong stairwell. Well he had to deal with my gun being on him and my dog on his legs. He left pretty quickly returning later to apologize.
One thing I’m happy my dog does is how he takes on the protector role when I’m not there. If I’m at work and my other half is at home he goes full sheepdog. If she’s walking him and people come near he will plant himself between her and the other person. My girlfriend gets embarrassed that he growls and barks at other people but I’m not bothered by it. I’d rather him be alert and attentive, than aloof and lazy.
He’s got a thick collar on usually and and patch on there in big red letters that says do not pet. Most people keep their distance. He looks super sweet but he’s a mean mother****er if you cross him. I don’t have any current pics but here he is at 6 months

Lots of dog lovers here an GT. I don’t think anyone would want you to abandon your friend
What you are sensing is concern of someone getting bitten seriously enough to warrant a lawsuit or the dog being put down.
The risk and the outcome are all on you and I say this as a lifelong Rottie owner.
That your dog has bitten multiple times and may still bite again is concerning
Not criticizing just contemplating the situational risk
That's a problem, and at some point you are going to have to deal with it, either by keeping her muzzled or confined , or by getting her some proper training.....if at some point she bites the wrong person, you are looking at civil repercussions, and possibly even her being removed and euthanized.
Do something about her behavior, please, she's you best friend and she would die for you, but you need to do your part to protect her as well. The loyalty goes both ways, and she is counting on you to protect her.
Our UPS guy used to lean out his window and tie bags to tree limbs so he did not have to get out and face our Rottweiler.
FedEx and the mail man all knew he was all bark, but not the UPS guy.
Baron only ever bit one person and we can't actually confirm that because it was a guy in a hoodie in the heat of summer that strolled up our driveway. Baron escorted him off the property at a full run!
I'm not sure I'm understanding you-- are you stating the dog owner is not responsible for controlling his dog?
There are two residences in our neighborhood that USPS refuse to deliver to because of the dogs.
