What to do when dogs charge your dog?
We live on a ranch with 10 dogs (only 2 are ours) and when I take Ruger for his walks occasionally we get charged by some of the other dogs. They run up to us barking like crazy. So I just step between me and my puppy and tell the dogs "ah ah"
They have been introduced one dog at a time and they have all done well. However, when it is the pack all together they try to gang up. They have also been known to attack other dogs...needless to say, I am not a fan of these dogs.
The breeds that make up this menagerie are aussies, heelers, catahoula, border collie, and now my GSD. They are friendly to me, but when my family visits I tell them not to try to pet any of them. A perfect example of not training and socializing the dogs you bring home.
I guess my question is more what can I do to train them not to do this. I know they are not my dogs, but maybe if I could give treats or something? I'm pretty effective stopping them, but I would rather them not do it at all especially with my puppy.
Advice from those of you with large packs would be helpful.
