Well, dogs do have a history of hating mail men. And op, im guessing you didn't exactly train your dog to be a guard dog. Dogs aren't violent animals that will just attack a random human being on pure instinct. they need to be trained to do that.

@25: I don’t think so. It’s a dog’s natural instinct to protect his or her home and pack. If OP got attacked within the confines of his own yard and his dog didn’t react something seems to be wrong with that dog.

Usually if a dog sees his owner getting attacked, they react in a protective way. It's not their natural instinct to attack humans but it is their natural instinct to protect their owner (or pack, like the person above me said).

My dog was home when we got robbed and acted like nothing was wrong. My mom thinks she just layed on the couch and watched. My dog isn't the brightest star in the sky.

If I yell "OWW" my dog would attack the other person and stops when I say it's ok. A fun game to play with the family :) luckily that ones the smaller dog...

@37 - yes, that's the correct word. Dogs usually see any humans or other animals in their household as their pack so they would be protective of them.

My dog just walked up to the men who robbed me at gunpoint and then gave them a good long sniff, turned around, and sat down. I like to think that he did it because he was smart enough that if he attacked them, they likely would have hurt him since he is small. Or because what they were doing was laughable and not really scary ... That's probably not why though.

Or maybe it was just because he saw interaction between you and the mugger in your yard, but when the mailman came he was defending his terrotory since you weren't (perhaps) around.

You can't rely on your dog to protect you, when it comes down to it, they're probably just as scared and confused as you are in that situation, no matter how big and scary they look!

The best way to avoid this is to train your dog specifically for self protection by having commands for attacking, ceasing attack, and specifying a target.

It is where they teach the dog to attack on command, it is really cool. I have seen some of the classes and the dogs are super well behaved, they have to be or they can't learn it

75- uh, DUH. Dogs are usually very in tune with the 'vibes' people send out. if they can tell you don't like them or their owner, they will act accordingly. my dog loves everyone... except people I don't like. then she'll avoid them. EVERY dog does it. anyways, there's a saying- judge the deed, not the breed. because your mom got chased by a rottie doesn't make them all vicious. educate yourself.

I never said they were all vicious... I love rotties jackass. I've just never seen one not be protective. That's all I was saying. My mom got chased because she seriously pissed one off by hitting their owner. I left that out to keep the comment short. If you think I'm hating on bully breeds just know I own two pits. I'm not uneducated. As I stated, I've just never seen one not be protective.

I like how you call me a jackass, then message me, then BLOCK ME so I can't reply lol classy Anyways, you should watch how you phrase things because you certainly come across as doggy racist. I sincerely doubt your pits exist,because if they did, you'd watch what you say. people like to take things about 'bully' breeds and twist them.

I never blocked you.... Why the fuck would I do that? I called you a jackass because you were being really bitchy in the comment when I was further explaining myself and you just flew off the handle.

I do have pits. I never said that I was suprised their dog didn't rip their throat out. All I said was "I'm suprised they just sat there." Most dogs have some kind of reaction like barking or growling at least. That's why I said what I said.
