GOod job Stella! I have done that before with my aussie, who'd chase a bird to china if I let her..I just yell, BYE I'm going for a RIDE IN THE CAR!
Second question, that scenerio is something that tick me off
I realize accidents happen, but keep the dog on a leash (other person
Hard to say "how" to react..Masi and I were in a class where she was charged/barked at, picked on by bigger dogs,,that class lasted two times for me, and I yanked her out of it, cause the trainer was a freaking idiot who allowed alot of inappropriate behavior to take place.
In your situation, I most likely would have stood up and walked stella in the opposite direction,,(come on let's go) but things happen so fast sometimes you have no time to react
It was totally normal of her to jump up and bark back,,
