Also wondering...and you would know better than me for several reasons...think the dog was "for real?" If it was a run at your dog-like animal (the pug :twisted: ) that you blocked just by being between that dog and your dog-like animal...just wondering if it was asserting dominance or actually planned to have a go at your dog. Sorry about that experience, in any case, that must not have been fun.
Anyway, I think Tim's suggestion is good. At the very least a "possession is 9/10s of the law" rule...if either dog(s) is out there first, the other doesn't go out there. Is that possible?
