Max, robot guard

hello, I'm trying to recall a short science fiction story I read back in the 60's, it may be even older of course, about a robot that inadvertently kept its master out of the camp, and the master's fight against the robot's intelligence in order to get back in. I can't remember what the answer was which enabled the master to outwit the robot. Maybe someone can help.

@LizzieLiz,
Sorry, it doesn't sound familiar to me.

@rosborne979,
Robert Sheckley's short story. There was no "answer"... after several attempts he just crawled into the camp Smile . By not responding to the robot's [Max] questions, the A.I. presumed it was an animal, therefore represented no potential danger to the camp.
