Not a typical husky trait. They will alert, but are usually either friendly or aloof.
I think you are right. People like paramedics should be able to get into my house if necessarly, however, In 99% of democratic countries, as long as someone is on my property uninvited I have the right to defend me, no matter if that person actually wanted to steal or not.And it might land you in legal trouble too, depending on the laws where you live.
Interesting solution.What you can do is train your dog to bark when he sees people on the property. Even if he's wagging his tail and super happy while doing it, a barking dog is going to be more intimidating, and it will alert you that someone's nearby so you can take action, whether that's telling your dog that everything's fine or calling the authorities.
Defending yourself or your family, home, etc, is different than having a dog that attacks people.I think you are right.

I believed that US is the country where you can so easily own fire weapons and just shoot the people that cross your territory.In the US
I never lived in US, however I always believed is a country where you can own a fire weapon and when you see someone on your property you shoot and then ask why the person is there.There's multiple US states where an intruder could sue you because your dog attacked them, though I don't think it's very common. But I was more referring to the case where the dog attacked an innocent party on your property - there's lots of democratic countries where that would get a dog labeled as 'dangerous' and can result in serious legal issues for the owner. Again, I can't speak for Romania, so that's something you'd have to look into yourself if you want to know for sure.
I didn't expect this answer from a US citizen. In case you didn't know, US has an image of a country where you can expect to be shot on street."Uninvited" is not actually accurate either. In many places, it is not considered tresspass unless you have posted no tresspassing signs and/or have specifically told the person they are not welcome on your property. Simply walking up to your door does not necessarily equate to the right to defend yourself. And most stand your ground, castle doctrines, etc, only apply if the tresspasser has or is attempting to enter your dwelling - not simply entering your land.
Then why it is so easy to obtain a gun? In EU, Norway isn't part of EU, however I'm sure it is the same situation, you can't claim your right to own a gun, you have to be a hunter or to be part of the military to own a lethal gun, and a civilian can really difficult obtain a non-lethal weapon by requesting to authorities, then doing a psychological test, then signing 100 documents, then waiting 10 years for a review and after that you might receive your non-lethal gun.There's multiple US states where an intruder could sue you because your dog attacked them, though I don't think it's very common
Nothing political here. I don't know what do you mean? I was just surprised hearing about US not allowing guard dogs to attack intruders.This is a dog forum. We don't allow discussion of politics
I think in America many of you have unenclosed yard, which is not the case where I live, we have very tall, sometimes barbed wire fences which looks like a military base fence, so clearly if someone is struggling to climb the fence doesn't want to take a shortcut. Most of the robbers are not murderers and will try to steal unnoticed without threating the victim's life, so you are right, I would probable get sued by the robber's family if he would get killed or hurt while stealing from my house, however sometimes you might encounter murderers or even psychopaths that don't even want to steal, just want to murder. What I'm trying to say is that I live in a very isolated neighborhood. I would feel a lot safer knowing I have in yard a fierce dog that is able to rip the face of an intruder(nowadays we keep dogs as pets, however I think one of the main reasons humans needed dogs in the past was for their fangs and claws, either for hunting animals or defending from other humans). Or, I would feel safer to have a gun. I understand that husky aren't the dogs for that, anyway I bought a dog to keep it as a pet not a guard dog, it was just a second bonus of owning a dog.taking a shortcut through a yard might be breaking the law
