Now as for the owner. Not going to comment since my response is predicated on me being a 200 pound 6'1 male who is occasionally into confrontation.
Yes, I am working on getting Frodo there. He is doing pretty well in class ignoring the couple of very reactive dogs, hopefully it will transfer to everyday life some day!
also, I must add, its not the dog. There are plenty of dogs around who are reactive/ aggressive, owners make sure to manage them to keep things safe for everyone. It is that particular guy who seems to seek a fight for his dog.
