Echo, female, has a 55 pound male aussie shepherd mix best friend, they have similar play styles and love being around each other. There are some issues, the aussie cross is mildly person and moderately dog reactive. Echo has not shown either behavior until now. We let them play off lead in a sheltered part of the complex.

Over the last week:

Aussie mix was aggressive to a RGing 12 week old husky, alpha rolled him sprained wrist. Echo ran from conflict.
Altercation with staffy, no injuries teeth bared + shoulder barges. Echo removed herself and watched from a distance.
Unfamiliar person, Aussie barks and herds, Echo stays away but woofs.
Dog in distance that both were familiar with, both postured and growled, Aussie was taken inside but I took Echo over carefully and she was showing her normal appeasing behavior by the time we got 50 m away and it was a happy meeting.
Echo has started to woof at people while on the porch.

I feel like they are exhibiting pack-like behavior and I'm not sure whether to ease off the play dates or just be hyper vigilant about other dogs and people.
