My dogs are very sociable if someone comes into the house or if we take them some place where there are other people and animals such as the vets. However if someone or some animal that they don't know comes on our property they bark until we tell them it's okay.

I find this study interesting. Use to be the "theory" was that dogs showed affection so you would feed them. Or that as long as you fed them they would hang with you. I always believed that dogs felt true affection of a sorts, a true devotion. I have read many stories of dogs staying people who abuse them, and of dogs living with a homeless person, who had very little food fro himself much less his dog. I think this article kinda explains it.
