* The ''[[Series/TheTwilightZone Twilight Zone]]'' ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' episode "The Hunt" depends on this trope, and one Hunt".

* {{Inverted| trope}} in ''Westernanimation/{{Phantom 2040}}'': DV-L is initially uneasy around Kit, so Sagan has to firmly tell him that Kit is a friend. Later on, when they meet Kit as the Phantom, Sagan expects DV-L to attack... but, of course, DV-L remembers that he's a friend and lets him go.

If the dog is attempting to warn its master or another nearby human character but the warning is dismissed (typically due to annoyance at the dog's repeated barking or other unusual actions), it can be a form of NotNowKiddo. Animals can also detect especially good people, if they're a FriendToAllLivingThings.

** Mistakenly believing that [[FakingTheDead Bran and Rickon]]'s wolves failed to protect them, Robb stops putting any stock in Grey Wind as anything but a RightHandAttackDog. As a result, against Catelyn's GenreSavvy protestations, he has his wolf [[NotNowKiddo sent away or chained up]] when he growls at Rolph Spicer and the Freys, whose grand betrayal leads to the deaths of Robb, Catelyn and Grey Wind alike.

** Dogs are some of the most annoying NPCs in the game, and not just because they can sniff you out. Dogs count as witnesses if you kill someone in front of them, so inexperienced players may get tripped up by them. Also, [[SerendipityWritesThePlot since it would've been too hard to create an animation model of 47 dragging them around]], you can't dispose of dog bodies, making it harder to go undetected.

* In ''Fanfic/CandyForYourThoughts,'' [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Duncan]] gets a MoralityPet in the form of a dog used in one of the challenges. Despite being super-friendly, "Mohawk" growls at [[UnholyMatrimony Heather and Alejandro]] when Duncan is eavesdropping on them. It would have saved Duncan a lot of grief if he had paid attention to this, since the pair knew Duncan was watching and were [[BatmanGambit spouting a bunch of lies to mislead him]].
