OMG! I actually have no idea. One lady let her guy tussle with a 90lb Rottie that had gotten loose!

It worked out OK because that one dog was friendly! They sniffed noses, But by and large as a group they are clueless!

Every now and then they have a dog with big Dawg problems! One 3 yr old rescue had grabbed the 9 yr toy dog and was shaking it like a rag! She was told to institute training with a clicker!!!

She disappeared from the board pretty sure the dog went back. Mostly let them work it out folks!

One thought and I apologize if you feel like I am piling on but for the welfare of the dog and those that love him....I noticed a choker on him in the picture... perhaps you just finished a training session or walk and that is why it is on or the dog is always monitored when it is on. If not, leaving an unrestricted choke collar on any dog can end up resulting in a nightmare...if the tag end were to ever get caught on anything, such as a high spot on a fence if the dog is a jumper...it's a really bad day. I've always been a stickler about this ever since a friend's dog got the loose end of a choker wedged in between 2 pieces of wooden fencing, the dog survived luckily due to someone noticing the dog struggling in it's kennel.

Good catch!
These seem to be popular I never used one in the past but I did have dogs that could ditch collars at will. Proper use of any tool is always advised!

I'm gonna do real good with Rocky guys, will learn solidly from this and move on. Here's him with my 3 year old sharing a good laugh

They look so cute together.

Since there is a 3 yr old involved as well - here is another page you want to dig into Family Paws-New parent classes dog and baby

I just hope you learned a lesson about approaching strange dogs, because that dog could have seriously hurt your dog.


A well bred Dalmatian is not cooky but some Dals from bybs are aggressive, they are very strong and very muscular. My 8 month old male Dal puppy is 35 pounds less than my male GSD and he definitely holds his own against him. They are a guarding breed.
