    "If your dog doesn't like someone you probably shouldn't either?

    Has this been true for you? Or it hasn't made any difference?

    yup. Dogs can smell deceit and anger and all other emotions.  I trust my dog when he don't like somebody.

    If we look at the large number of innocent children who have been attacked and maimed by dogs it is hard to justify the alleged "infallibility of dogs".
    Also, if we add up the numbers of dog owners themselves who have been attacked by their own dogs we see another argument against the infallibility of dogs.
    Lastly, there are numerous cases of dogs who have eaten part of their dead owners immediately after the death of their owners. Does this mean the owners were bad people?

      Hi Oztinato! I was coming from a "by and large" context where most dogs can make  a noble and loyal companion.
      I agree with you in the happenings of these incidences you mentioned.

    I've had two dogs at different times in my life. Both were basically very friendly dogs but I did notice that they both reacted to people I didn't like pretty much the same way. My little 18 pound Bilbo would bark and my 85 pound Duchess would growl. So is it that they didn't like the person or were they reacting to me not liking the person?

      A very good question regard in tune with you rather than sensing the another. I think it is the former with observation of seeing eye dogs and assistant dogs in my life.

      My inital feeling was that it could be both . But after Tim having experiences with our sensitive guide dogs then  they sense and know the other foremost then. I have got to say the guide dogs have always held a very big soft spot within me..

    If the dog threatens the baby, the dog is gone.
    If the dog threatens a potential romantic partner, it may be doing this simply because it isn't acclimated to the person and will change. Or it is badly trained.

      Oh yes if the dog is not warming to a baby or little child then you do need to remove the dog no two ways about it.
