What type of guard dog training is this?

A while back I went to visit a distant relative of my husband, and it was the first and last time that I did. She had a GSD and she had to lock him up in a room before we could enter her home. Once we were inside, she let him out and he more or less just watched us. Then when we were ready to leave, she had to lock her dog up again, she said that he would attack us if we were to attempt to leave while he was loose. She said that he was trained this way. I always wondered if this training was common in guard dogs. Then a few weeks ago an acquaintance of mine said that he was attacked by a GS while visiting a friend because his friend left the room and he stood up and walked across the room and the dog attacked him for not remaining seated, he said that the owner stated that his dog was trained like this. What the heck type of training is this?

Never heard of such a thing. Keep in mind a lot of people (maybe this is the case and maybe not, I'm not judging anyone) think they have a PPD that will fight an attacker/intruder and what they have is a noisy pet. IMHO

The kind where I would demand the dog was put up behind a locked door before I came to the friend's house!

An untrained, un solcialized GSD, no special training, they'll do that naturally if you let them

This is a GSD that is unpredictable with weak nerves. This type of behaviour should not be bragged about. Ugh....

Can't help but feel bad for the poor dog. He/she just needs strong leadership & training. Not to be locked in a room when someone visits to cause more of a panic & the need to be suspicious when it's unwarrented.

This is bad yes, but does it have anything to do with their herding characteristic?

Er, speak for yourself/your dogs! Sounds like a dog with some major issues to me. Definitely not properly trained, but perhaps something no amount of socialization can "fix". Just not a stable dog.
