    My wife and I have been looking for a watchdog, and came across a 107lb. Black Lab/ Golden Retriever cross who's 3 years old. He's a good boy with some training who's coming over to live Sunday. The problem is now the wife feels scared of the dog, even though he's well behaved and shows no aggression issues. This from a woman who's always had dogs (bred and showed her own too). Shed, What do I do @Stevie???

    If your wife feels scared about the dog, he's going to sense it. Are you able to have like a "test week?" to see if she warms up to him?

    Yes, we can return him if he's not our "cup of tea". Not sure what brought out a fear in her, she loved my last Lab/ Pit Bull cross.

    Sometimes you can just get a "not quite right" feeling about an animal (or person). It doesn't mean there's something wrong with the dog, just maybe not a perfect match.

    Yeah, that was my thought, he's smart and suspicious though. All I need him to do though is bark long enough to load a gun, this is a "never mind the dog, beware of owner" household.

    If the criminal is allergic to being licked that dog might be effective.

    I have a lab/golden mix. He's got a weird vibe the way he eyefucks me sometimes but he is totally harmless. I just can't read him like the others but that doesn't mean he's a danger at all.

    The mix isn't one I'd worry about. He's gotta learn to trust y'all too and it may take some time.

    Be careful. You'll put your eye out if you continue to let that dog abuse you that way.
