Using an ATM alone is risky these days, especially at night. Security cameras, cubicle-type walls, and even armed guards have been set up at certain locations to discourage muggers and opportunists, but there's one defense mechanism that could prove to be even more effective - and all it will ask for in return is a treat.

That's right. Photos are appearing on the Internet of people carefully positioning their canine crew behind them while using ATMs, and while these pups may look cute and cuddly at first glance, there's no doubt that any hand that comes near their human while banking is most likely not going to come back in good condition. "This is a good strategy. I would be way too distracted trying to pet the dogs to steal her information," one social media user alternatively stated.

If you're thinking of adopting a dog and need yet another good reason to, here you are. If you've already got one, it might be time to start enlisting them as your official cash withdrawal guard dog. Scroll down for all the proof you need.

she looks like the wife of that guy that breeds and trains massive security dogs... judging by most of these images, they used his dogs for the photoshoots.

The way she's standing, a thief would already get half of what he's looking for... her PIN.
