| | Reactive (not aggressive) towards other dogs. What do I do?
My dog will (it seems random) lunge and bark at other dogs when we are on walks. Usually bigger dogs. I have to hold him back and we walk away. He calms down once the dog is out of his sight.
I don't know what he would do if I let him go. He is not aggressive that I know.
He is a year and i have had him for 3 months.
I can't get a sense of what is upsetting him. I usually cross the street if i see a dog coming. His former owner said he gets along with other dogs and usually ignores them. I don't know how true that is, but he does not ignore anything. He watches people and dogs when we go out.
I took him to a dog park and he was fine except he barked more than the other dogs. I think it might have been too much for him. It was too much for me. I think we will not do dog parks. He has plenty of room to run around here.
I will praise him when he does not react, but what do I do when he does? Give him a treat when he calms down?
