If the person was kicking your dog in a corner and not stopping of course stand up right away for the dog, but for little spats like that it's really not worth the breath or aggravation.
I think telling my dog "NO" in a situation that he (and I) think is correct is just going to make him think hes being a bad boy. She ended up leaving as I started to walk up to them, which left me thinking I did something wrong.
