SS Cressa Posted November 30, 2011 Report Share Posted November 30, 2011 Lately I dont know why, Cressa acts spooked walking past a couple black German shepherd. The dogs doesnt look at her, snark at her, or generally acknowledge her present(or doesnt till she yipes). 1st time I saw it was at nationals. I went outside to potty her and we walked past a black GSD. The dog was gazing at its owner the whole time... Cressa saw the dog and immediately her ears went back, tail tucked, and slicked past it like it was after her. Then once we had walked past it she "yelped" and snap the air toward it. As if it went after her. The owner looked startle and almost started to apologize when I was like your dog didnt touch my dog. We were about 3+ feet away and I didnt know what her issue was till after she yelped. We were going different directions in both incidents. She did something similar at this last trial. We walked past a black GSD and once again she started to slink like it was after her, and yelped when we pasted it then snap at it again. It was a different dog then the one at nationals. SHe doesnt connect(we are 2-3 feet away) and it as if she is protecting herself from an attacked from the GSD. Was going to find the owner and see if I can get Cressa to tolerate the dog. I know a lot of dogs cue off Cressa intentness. She has been attack from a GSD dog before like 4 years ago ("at a play date" which we never did again.) and her arch-enemy is a female belgium malinois. She doesnt like GSD but has never done these behaviors before? Most dog she just ignores. She doesnt normally like going near GSD but generally she just gives them distants. Has anyone dogs done this before? How did you handle it? Ive never had her act competely spooked by another dog before. ETA: These are the only incidents that have happen so far. the one that attacked her was a sable. the ones she is terrified of are black.
