Whenever James takes his dog for a walk, before attaching the dog's lead, he stands by the front door and calls the dog's name towards him. He does this even if he can physically feel the dog already waiting there. Otherwise, James might die. What's the explanation?

James is blind.He have to make sure it is his dog , so that the dog will take care of him while walking.James might die of road accidents if the dog is not his dog.
The dog is trained to kill anyone who tries to leash it without saying its name first. I assume he is blind because the question says "physically feel" instead of "see". Even if James is blind, I'm sure he could identify his dog by touch.
Whenever James goes out with the dog he enables a complicated and lethal system of booby traps. The system is voice-activated using the dog's name. The important part is standing by the front door; if he's elsewhere in the house he'll trigger the traps.
All answers here seem legit. Here's my shot:
I think James is not blind but the dog is blind and can attack if some stranger touches him. So James calls the dog's name and the dog knows that his owner is approaching him.
James lives in an alternate universe where dogs rule over the human race. The dog is blind and needs James to guide him around the futuristic city of Barkington. People are treated like trash and the "bad ones" get sorted out rather quickly. If your human doesn't do as he was told you might aswell get a replacement. "The dog's lead" is literally a block of lead James has to carry around in order to have his movement hindered. If he was to walk around without it the police would shut him down and James would be euthanized. James has to say the dogs name so he can fetch the lead block and attach it to his collar.
The lead is protected by a voice password, which is the dog's name. And he is blind, so he can't leave his house without his dog
