Miracle on 24 Paw Lane
Let me tell you why:
I can not tell you the countless times we have run into loose dogs that either would confront Brut or worse, would want to be friendly. I have been lucky with theses confrontations never to have a dog fight on a walk, but the ones who were completely oblivious to Brut's warnings were the ones who scare me the most. They just insisted on getting closer and closer to Brut while Brut will lunge and growl at them. I could never understand this behavior and it was pointed out to me that these dogs are under socialized in the comments of a post I wrote HERE. Never once has Brut hurt or even come close to touching these dogs, but there is a lot of effort on my part to make sure that didn't happen.
But something different happened this time while Brut and I were out that night. And I can't even begin to tell you the amount of awesome it was.
If that wasn't enough awesome, we ran into a small group of teenagers after that and Brut didn't flinch an inch. Which was completely incredible! He had quite a night and I couldn't have been more proud of him!

That was good communication. It is surprising that dog's don't always manage to understand one another; you would expect them to. This also happened to us and other dogs too.
Pity more dogs are not socialised properly to learn that no ie a growl means no. Glad the walk went well. Have a super Saturday.Best wishes Molly
That is awesome! So glad you and Brut has a good experience.
