Default What would your dog do if......

Picture this scenario:

My SUV is loaded up, and on our way to the local trails for hiking. It's me, my wife, two of my daughters, and Kira.

On the way, I fuel up the truck, and the attendant offers a free exterior car wash at the same location.

I finish fueling, and pull into the automated carwash. At that point, the car wash attendant asks me to get out of my truck. Kira had her car restraint on, and my daughter thought we were all getting out, so she removed it. Kira jumped into the driver's seat, and waited for me to come get her. The truck door was closed.

Unexpectedly, the car wash attendant opened the door to the driver's seat, and Kira was sitting right there in his face.....

If you had to guess, what do you think Kira did?

What would your dog have done?

Just curious.

Thanks.

I'm guessing Kira barked at the guy and he had to take a quick trip to the head. I know Raina would bark as soon as the person touched the door handle. I'm not sure what would happen if they actually opened it as no one has ever tried.

My dog would not be in the situation. He would be crated in the back of the truck if I had kids in the vehicle--I would be concerned about what might happen with with a belted dog next to kids in a wreck.

Given the situation though - Grim would probably go ballistic; he made one person pee her pants once. Beau has not developed any defense around vehicles I think because from day one I took him anywhere and everywhere and he is used to people getting stuff from my truck and he is still young (about a month younger than your dog).

My GSD would have stayed put and not made a peep. I take her to all different places in the car and she has never barked at anyone. Stare, yes she does stare them down and in a silent deadly kinda way. I think Kira surprised you in this situation and possibly didn't react at all. How long do we have to wait for the answer?...I have to go to the store

My dogs also would not have been in that situation. I wouldn't have walked away without my dog and would have let them know there was a dog in the car.

Raven and Kaiser would be fine. Raven would likely lick the guy and Kaiser would run out past them to me. Holly would have scared the crap out of the guy barking and snapping.

Kira
1. Nothing
2. Moved to another part of the vehicle.
3. Jumped out.
4. Put the vehicle in drive and drove to the butcher shop with your wallet that you left in the console?

Idk for certain what my dogs would do. They don't bark at the people who walk past our vehicle, but as for a stranger opening the door, its never happened.

My dogs would have either kissed the guy or just jumped out and headed towards me . I have no idea how Kira would have reacted but I'm going to say she was surprised and just sat there.

It's a wild guess, but knowing my puppy he'd have jumped out as soon as the door was opened. I'm guessing Kira did the same?

A few months ago, Hans would have done nothing or maybe would have given kisses.
Today, he would bark his Czech guard dog bark and make the poor guy doo his pants.

I think Kira did nothing.
