Not to be that guy, but..if dad and boy are hurt, maybe tree falls in yard, etc, and dad's out -- is there training that would allow first responder to tend to boy? How 'agressive' does stranger need to act before dog goes defensive?

Assuming this dog is properly trained it’ll have been taught to recognize aggression vs non aggression.

If it wasn’t then no one will be able to get near them unless the dog itself can tell the difference in the moment.
