    dee…it would be useful if you started to note down what happens with the greets with different dogs…try and find out if dogs are entire/castrated…girlies not spayed/spayed had pups then spayed maiden etc etc….

    some of the differences will be very subtle ….the real important ones are how entire dogs…maels and females now react to him…

    widget, entire dogs loved him pre castration  😀 he loves any dog.

    really, i think he needs to see dog say hello move on atm. over the last three days, we saw one dog. one.

    the last time i let him meet a dog then play, i looked to see if other dogs were around first but then a dog on flexi came into view and he was off. not popular as he squashed it. in fact he was accused of biting it. i wont tell you what she said but it wasnt pleasant. seems like the grass is greener…………

    also, the way handlers deal with their dogs reaction, which, in the main, is to tell their dog off for grumbling/telling max off  :-\ . they seem to think their dog is going to turn aggressive so stop them telling him.

    went to different woodland park while visiting a friend yesterday, full of dogs at the weekend pretty quiet midweek. didnt think to ask sex etc  😛 on lead at all times.

    little cocker on flexi, max eager. both wanted to bum sniff without allowing the other to. got tangled. went in opposite directions.

    6 month choc lab girl came from nowhere and bowled into us. i had time to brace, max stunned. it was jumping up for my treat bag and her mum(?) joined in. ignored max. girl got dragged away. difficult to see what was going on it was so frenetic, but she interested in playing. we followed at a distance, max pulling like a sled dog.
    we went a different way.

    stopped at a bench, max settled nice, man with cocker following quite far behind. max spotted her and stayed down facing her as she trotted up to him. gentle tail wag and got up once she was with him. polite nose sniff then playbow. he then trod on her foot, lol, and she decided to follow owner, he wanted to follow but i said this way and he came to me.

    leaving the park, saw a med x young boy max barely pulled to greet, long nose sniff then both wanted to bum sniff without being sniffed. didnt get tangled this time. both started to go into play mode so we walked on.

    later went for walk locally, saw dogs on other side of road and max ‘oohh dog’ but that it. dog in garden going fruit loop, max reacted to that.

    to pub garden, let him loose. landlords jr came to tell him this my place through gate, waited to recall and he did. jr came under the gate and TOLD max. he agreed it jrs place jr marked and max didnt. jr kept eye on max at distance, max didnt go back to him.

    busy day.

    sounds good…so no other dogs showing any form of fear aggression ?

    oopps, forgot the jr. but i think it was that type anyway. i heard a big bark and he had apparently snapped once at max then strutted away

    not subtle and real fear…not home guarding or resource guarding….and max showed extreme confusion..thats good  🙂 if owners happy i would now let him start to play….
