Can dogs really tell if someone is bad?

I have a 3 year old mixed breed dog. She's pretty big (75 lbs) and I've never had an issue with her being aggressive towards anyone. Well my new boyfriend came over last night and my dog tried attacking him. From the moment she saw him, she started barking and growling. I had to keep them separated until after he left.

Even now, when I say his name she starts looking for him and growling at the front door.

I'm wondering if maybe my dog can tell that my boyfriend just isn't a good person... Is it possible?

  • Sounds more like you're not a good leader. You boyfriend is from outside your pack. He's an invader. Your dog is the alpha in your pack, you are the subordinate. You dog doesn't like the challenge to his authority within his territory.
