I did a search and did not see anything come up but if there is a thread on this topic a link would be appreciated. Cassius like most pups gets over excited when he sees other dogs. He wants to meet and play. If it seems the other owner is willing to try and introduce their dog we get close slowly and I make him sit. This lasts about 1/2 a second and then he wants to play. Thing is he wants to jump up and go right into full play mode and it either scares owners or upsets the dogs. Today I saw a really neat boxer/mastiff mix and the owner was totally alright with having the dogs meet. Cassius just would not calm down enough to have a "polite meeting" and since she as boxer/mastiff she would jump right into the playing as well. We tried a solid 5 minutes but the dogs just wanted to be nuts. He goes to daycare and our dogwalker even brings other dogs to walk with him twice a week but still he's nutso when we meet people in the park and on the street. At obedience he wants to meet other dogs and does his whiny woowoo distracting everyone..haha. It's a total bummer because now it's spring and there's always people with dogs at the park etc. and I feel like I have to avoid them. With people he's great (though he does like to jump, which we are working on).
