"Not so - calming signal" from Kira.
I hate to raise topics like this, but I feel the need to learn more about this.
As many of you know, Kira is not good with other dogs. She has a timid personality, and apparently other dogs pick up on this, and become aggressive.
For that reason, I've made it my business to keep her away from loose dogs.
As you can see in my many videos, we're always alone with her, and she's fine.
Yesterday, I was walking ON LEASH on a local street. People were walking in both directions, and Kira was walking beautifully. She paid no attention to anyone, just walked by my side.
As we passed another Golden retriever (also on leash), the Golden just burst out into a rage at Kira. Kira paid no attention, and we just kept walking.
The owner stopped about 20 feet behind me, and looked at me to apologize. She said that her dog NEVER does this. I just chuckled under my breath.
Besides the incidents we know about, this has happened on more than just a few occasions.
Has anyone ever experienced having a dog, that simply invites aggression from other dogs?
There has to be some sort of "canine signal" going on here.
