I feel like its probably a chihuahua or other small breed. They tend to attack when they panic more than larger breeds. Sounds like you have some training to do either way.

I feel like if you're dog attacks you over a pumpkin breaking over you're knee, you didn't train it very well. So I don't have sympathy because a good dog that's trained right won't attack you.

*clears throat* Today, I saw the pumpkin I had put out for Halloween was starting to get mushy. I went to put it in a trash bag when it slipped out of my hands and burst over my knee. My dog heard the noise, ran into the kitchen and attacked me out of panic. FML

maybe op recently adopted the dog and is still training them. even if not, op still doesn't deserve to get attacked by a dog.

Dang 15 and I'm usually really good with grammar! And to everyone else, I suppose they could still be training it, but even an untrained dog shouldn't attack the owner. And I kinda doubt the dog would be trying to get op out of the scene, with all of my dogs they would have attacked the remains of the pumpkin. Although I could be wrong, I'm not a dog phycologist

Well, at least your dog is protective enough, you can sleep safe at night. Just train him not to panic at every loud noise in the house.

It's probably not very protective if the owner is the one attacked, that sounds more like aggression to me.

Is that how you deal with the rest of your problems? Just out of curiosity.. If your child misbehaved do you just get rid of it? If you the owner/trainer can't be responsible for something you took upon yourself to watch over and love you shouldn't have gotten it in the first place.. That just applies overall in life; perhaps I'm over reacting to your statement but that's what I got from it.

Sorry OP, that must have created a real mess! On a side note, dogs are great companions and can be great for protection too- maybe you should look into some training classes.

my giant Newfoundland that I got a few months ago is like this. he's 9 and his previous owner must've not been the nicest. I'm usually just standing there like "oh lord please stop before you smash into me".

I think you generally want a guard dog to attack people BESIDES you when there's trouble. Unless you like to play life on hard mode.

It's possible the pumpkin was out the front and the only way to get to the back bin is through the house, or some similar scenario

A dog shouldn't be panicking over a sound like that, not to the extent that it attacks it's owner. Sounds like you and your dog really need some training courses.
