Oh they sure do.
3 GSDs that are not particularly thrilled about strangers during walks (especially at night) is pretty intimidating. I walk often at night because of work and the weather here. During summer months it's just WAY to hot to go further then the end of the driveway. Although our neighborhood and general area is very nice.... it's not gated, and anyone can walk through. You never know who could show up one night.
For the most part, people usually avoid using even the same street as us. lol! If anything was to happen, I would at least have a warning to do what's necessary. I would protect my dogs first, but I know Duke would bite (probably wouldn't hold... but he would rip a good chunk out), Zira would freak out and probably just bark... or run away peeing herself. However, Storm lives for the fight, and the more you go at her... the more she fights back and the stronger her bites are. I have a feeling, as an adult... Storm will have no problem protecting and staying in the action.
Even without them doing anything, I feel they are a good deterrent. I don't understand why anyone would pick a fight with a person and 3 large GSDs. Joke would be on them anyways, I don't carry cash and I never wear any jewelery when I workout or go for walks. All they would win is a hospital stay. lol!
