I've owned 3 large dogs over the years -- Great Dane , Pyrenean Mountain and now a Belgian Shepherd. All were/are household pets but also served as guard dogs , that is to say would look pretty fierce and bark an impressive warning. They obviously wouldn't follow that up with an attack or they'd have been put down so anyone could walk in if so inclined. However it was a different matter once the visitor was on the premises. If they didn't like the look of him they'd be fine until he started to leave. They'd then keep him there until someone they knew called them off. That didn't happen often but all 3 have done it . I understand that this behaviour is not uncommon among the large breeds and I've heard some hilarious tales resulting from it.
Just thought I'd share that with you     .

I have actually seen this myself, many years ago with a terrier type mongrel we owned. she let some workmen in the yard to work, and although there was a lot of barking, we had told the guys to ignore it. BUT, when it came to finishing time, candy (the dog) would not let them out the gate. she sat in the way and every time the work guys tried to pass, she would lean one way or the other and bare her teeth. It was so funny to watch, and the guys would not pass her.

We have a German Shepard that does the same, our son came back from Australia recently, she had not met him before, and first day back he walks straight into the house and the dog is just laying there, but she does let him leave

My two bitches allow uninvited intruders to leave unmolested -provided they're wearing body armour and can run faster than they can.
