Well I finally found her pimp

Ya cost me money till she healed. And they quit letting us take NTS credit cards on the lots.
My "baby-girl" is NOT shy about letting you know that if you should try and come into my house or my truck, you most definitely will NOT make it out
I have trained protection dogs for years and I have never had such a natural "student"!
Listens perfectly off leash and does exactly what I tell her (the dog NOT the kid)!
If I invite you in, she is great! If she is in a neutral area (dog park, pet store etc... great) but it would be unwise to try and lay a hand on one of my three girls!
This is a picture of her and my 2 yr old daughter... the dog is 11 mos in this picture and 100 pounds of SOLID!
* please forgive the messy house... this is our 100 yr old remodel !
It's funny how she ALWAYS looks like she is "on duty"!
Watching over the little one
Getting brushed with a baby-doll brush... she is the gentlest animal ever with this kid. The kid even uses the pup as a step stool to reach the counter!
You did the right thing. This is one of my favorite Massad Ayoob training videos:
Great video, in fact you'll notice at about 1:40 minutes into the video the other guy asks how the situation of unknown people at the door could be handled better and the first thing the guy mentions is equipment !, he recommends closed circuit TV, or more specifically a Video Surveillance system, which are available now a days for just a few hundred bucks.
There is no mention of peepholes, in fact he suggest not standing behind the door where a peephole would act like a bulls-eye if they were incline to shoot through the door.
Interestingly he doesn't mention or suggest a guard dog either? Probably not because a well trained guard dog wouldn't be useful, but because he knows that most people don't have the time or inclination to properly train a dog, and many people don't like dealing with all the dog crap all over the yard that comes along with it.
A video surveillance system, doesn't crap, doesn't need to be fed, continues to do it's job without any intervention even if you go away for months at a time, is accessible via the internet, and keeps a 24/7 video record of everyone who comes and goes on your property. Show me a dog or a peephole that can do that?
Jeez, peep holes, burglar alarms, attack dogs, semi-automatic pistols or an assault rifle for an strange knock at the door! In my 67 years, neither I nor any member of my family has ever been burglarized or assaulted. My wife once had her purse stollen. That's the closest we've been to a crime scene. Maybe I've just lived in very sheltered parts of America. If so, I feel sorry for those of you who feel they need all this added protection.
This horse has been dead for a while now.
