I don’t know how our dogs would react. Our newer dog is a chow mix but she’s pretty cautious and I would not put it past her to at least bark and growl. Whether she would bite I don’t know. They alert to anyone walking by the house. Our Rottie/GSD mix is big and intimidating but he wants to be everyone’s friend. He did growl at someone he saw approaching the front door. How he would act once they were in the house I don’t know. The problem with pets is often they are reprimanded against barking or growling at anyone in your home, so unless they are trained, they aren’t likely to do anything to anyone once they’ve entered the home IMHO.

My dogs, two shelties, continue barking until I tell them NO BARK. When they bark, whether it be thunder, or a package left on porch with bell being run, or whatever, they usually will not stop until I get up, go look and tell them it is ok and good little guard dogs. :)
That said, I hope I never have to find out. I spend a lot of time at home alone these days, I’m a SAHM, so I love having them and they give me a bit of a sense of security, not as much as my various guns do, but again, hope I don’t have to use them. I will though.
