LOL, Kevlar the Shepherd is a big baby!
We don’t have a dog, but my sister-in-law had a gorgeous German Shepherd for protection. He was trained in the Schitzhund (sp?) method. He would likely have killed a real intruder.
With family, though, he was a sweetheart. I miss that dog.
I agree if your dog was trained; but Kevlar was not backed into a corner so to speak.
My father in law had a neighbor who was robbed. He had a St Bernard and a chihuahua. The St Bernard did nothing; but that little one tore the shirt off the guy and he dropped everything he was stealing trying to get away. The St Bernard didn’t have to do a thing.
