I’ve decided – I’m an argumentative cow…

I did like the article, thought it was witty and engaging, and really good at seeing the “other side” of the story.

However I would be mortified if Rafe ever attacked another dog for simply bumping into him.  And I would tell him off.  He has been attacked, and I didn’t tell him off for defending himself.

But I wouldn’t want him to barge into another dog.  And if he did, and he has in the past, I’ve told owners of dogs which have growled or snapped at him that he deserved it for being rude.

How else are puppies supposed to learn how to behave unless they have interactions with older dogs that will say no to them?

So, yes, I agree with a lot of what she said, but no, I don’t agree that it is unfair to set high standards for your dog’s behaviour.
