Tonight at dog class during the free play, Havoc started biting the other dogs' backs and necks as they chased. One instructor said to the other, "Hey, he's starting that Shepherd back biting thing!" He was corrected. (I was kind of happy that my verbal correction had a bit more effect than a spray bottle.) Anyway, what is this behavior...is it herding or bullying?? Is it a shepherd thing?
These trainers are great and I found their correction suitable to my obnoxious 6 month old. He's becoming unruly when other dogs are chasing about.
Any advice or opinions would be welcome.
