well ruger is 10 weeks now. When my other dogs bark it seems to scare the heck out of him. He usually runs to me looking scared. He interacts well with the other dogs now. He got the message not to pester them when spike snapped at him last week. The running from the barking has always been there even before the spike incident. I am really having a hard time with potty training....somedays he has it and then its like he just decideds to pee.
