We are getting into things here that are beyond a web board discussion. Many times a dog redirects in this type of situation because of frustration, improper movement from the handler (and therefore not aggression) or frustration from the handler which will change certain dogs attitude very quickly. It's impossible to tell over the Internet. Give the wrong dog a "pop on it's nose for disobeying his master" and it could get very ugly very quickly. We need to understand that we train for our ego's, and our dog's performance is only a mirror reflection of what we have put into him.
