    Hey all, you guys have been awesome, new issue has popped up. Not really an issue for me because I can't stand hyper - active, mis behaving dogs.. apparently my little girl hates them.. we met a white boxer today that looked like it just ate a whole crate of bath salts. Owner was a neighbor in my new neighbor hood so I wanted to be polite in chatting (never again). It was all good for a few minutes bit after the boxer started getting wild and jumping around (typical boxer antics) esther got low and started growling, she clearly wanted a piece of this boxer. I gave a "hey" (her correction command before "NO") never her name. She sat right next to me and looked at me. Excellent! Repeat and we left. Is this a response to hyper activity? Happened once before with another dog that was acting like a spazz and fighting with another dog. She also broke up an in home cat fight.

    Some dogs just don't like other pushy and rude dogs. It happens.

    My bitch is the same. She's generally dog friendly but will immediately correct/warn a pushy dog that she's not okay with their antics.

    This is ok right? Socially accepted? I think it's just ducky, other dog owner couldn't care less..

    It's pretty darn polite compared to how some other dogs would react, my male included.

    Raine does the same, she never has full out attacked another dog but by the show she puts on with the dogs that don't respect her space and leap all on her you'd think she's going to take a chunk of them. I wouldn't worry about it much unless she acts this way with every dog she comes into contact with.

    Cool, thanks, it's been 2 dogs, both were rambunctious jack asses. I'm good with it.

    Tonka behaves in a similar way. She doesn't like dogs approaching her all crazy and wild. My husband says it is because she is "civilized," which cracks me up.
