A viral video shows what happens when you put your hand near a Doberman dog in guard mode.
The clip opens with a man telling a Doberman Pinscher, “Peaches, guard.”
The dog immediately obeys his presumptive owner, and the video quickly takes a frightening turn.
Peaches growls and shows his teeth every time a hand comes near his face, getting more defensive as the video continues.
At the end of the video, the Doberman, looking even angrier, dives off of the couch towards somebody behind the camera.
The video ends just as the dog leaps off the couch with his mouth wide open, leaving viewers to assume the tense situation resolved safely.
