I am all for mans best friend & really like dogs.
"Well, when my friend is in his shop and wife tries to come in, Bear stops her at the door. No way, no how is she going to get past."
That is funny in 1 way & not so funny in another.
What if your friend some how got hurt in the shop & needed his wife or paramedics to come in the shop to help him? Not so funny now is it? I think I'd some how retrain the dog to go get help if needed. Then the dog would really be his masters best friend.
