Yes, I am thinking of that. The other day he started something new: growling at other dogs. I know it's because other dogs have tried to attack him in the past week, so I did get a prong collar. He's so afraid of being attacked that it's attack or be attacked. He did not have these issues
when I first got him. It's only within the last couple of days, and yes, I know it will take patience. I will do what's right. I yell at other dogs coming toward him now (that is, dogs that are barking and snapping, and obviously after him), and that helps some.
I reassure him not every dog wants to hurt him. Why can't people follow the leash law and watch their dog?
Several service dogs have been attacked in my area, and yes, it does bother me. It's not the dogs, but the people who are stupid...just sad the other dogs pay the price, you know
