is my puppy a glutten for punishment
My 8 month old german shepherd (on the 16th) likes to go up to other dogs at the dog park and say hi to everyone, but recently he seems to be attracted to the dogs that want nothing to do with him. I had to recall him the other day because one dog growled at him and headed away , but Dexter followed him and kept trying to lick him in the face. Hes done this twice now with different dogs.
Also recently he likes to bother my old shih tzu to the point she gets upset
and growls and bites him in the face. Dexter just stands there and takes it. If she tries to leave he will follow her and try to lick her in the face which gets the whole episode going again. I remove him from the situation but he goes as far as crawling under the livingroom table and licking the shih tzu in the face again. The only thing that seems to work is distracting him .
How can I get him to stop doing this especially with other dogs at the dog park?
