Our dogs are not only our fur babies, but they serve as our protectors and cuddle buddies. Nothing gets past a dog, they have much better hearing than we do.
When they see something out of the ordinary, they may just watch it to assess whether or not it poses a threat. Once they do decide that the object is a threat they will sound the alarm by barking. Some dogs keep their distance and bark while others may charge full-speed ahead at the intruder.
In this video, Charlotte, the dachshund sees the intruder and sounds the alarm. The intruder, a plastic bag, doesn’t seem intimidated so Charlotte runs away. But keeps her eye in the bag barking every so often just so everyone else knows! Then she all of a sudden gets a burst of courage and chases down that bag! It is clear the bag knows it has lost this day! Bottom line – don’t mess with Charlotte!
