Being a southerner, I was always told that “The guard dog never attacks where the master doesn’t know.” Don’t be fooled! The guard dog in some settings is not a four legged animal. It is a person who may be a surrogate to do what the master doesn’t care to perform. When there is a guard dog walking around in your office, the boss is well aware of their moves. “Everyone bears watching” should be your motto. Although theoretically guard dogs, unlike watch dogs, are not trained to attack, they can! They have teeth that bite. So keep your “guards up” around suspicious creatures that you don’t trust. Follow your instincts! Your nose is usually not wrong!
