nowwown Posted July 23, 2007 Report Share Posted July 23, 2007 Cody went after a Boxer at the dog park on Saturday. The boxer wasn't even near him and Cody attacked. After we got everyone calmed down, separated, etc. Cody was fine for about five minutes. Then he went after the 8-month old boxer-mix puppy that belonged to the same woman as the original Boxer. That puppy was pretty large and I had a hard time beleiveing her that it was still a puppy, actually. I of course profusely apologized, we checked for injuries (no blood or damage) and then we promptly left the dog park. I just don't understand this. He's fine, fine fine with 98% of the dogs he meets. Then he gets aggressive. It's intermittent and it's driving us nuts. I don't know if it's safe or not safe with him from dog to dog at this point. If it's a dog he knows, like our neighbors' dogs, he's great. Most dogs we pass on the street he's friendly and fine. But it's that once in a while that makes me so scared. To me, they are not being aggressive to him at all. This is the second or third Boxer he has gone after. Other Boxers, he is fine with. But other times it is other types of dogs. Two weeks ago we were walking at an outside "town center" and some folks, like us, were enjoying coffee at outside tables. Cody laid quietly at her feet, then all of a sudden lunged and snarled at a retriever-mix dog three tables away. That dog had been laying quietly under its table so this was also unprovoked. I want to keep taking him to the dog park but I'm not sure it's a good idea anymore. I need suggestions and help!! Please! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
