It was an extremely scary experience for me...we were in my husbands Diesel truck which is loud and powerful....it could had been tragic but i got it under control...I dont rely on my dog to protect the house its just the piece of mind that "what if"...When i was younger we had a Boxer and he was the best dog EVER! He loved people as well but one time the meter reader jumped the back fence not knowing our dog was in the yard and he bit him....not major but knew to protect me and my sisters...the meter reader tried to get us to put our dog down but the vet refused stating he was doing what he knew best....protect....Sorry for the long story its just hard to explain....oh and another thing...he doesnt know when another dog i playing to rough...one of our friends has a husky pup who has a temper....last weekend they were "playing" and i noticed my dog had a little blood on him....I just dont know what to do please help
Well this is something he has to learn on his own. Dogs can draw blood even with playing, and I notice my parents boxers bleed a lot on their lips after playtime, no biggy.
As for protecting when your house, you won't know if your dog will do it until it happens to be honest.
The frightened issue I agree with Crio use treats to make it positive or a calming voice when he gets upset. Kids jumping on a trampoline I can understand would be weird and scary to a dog who has never seen it, they are high up and bouncing real high, kinda scares me! haha jk
