PostSubject: Less tolerant in class   Thu 13 Oct 2011, 10:34 pm

Reuben has never really got on with an 8 month old Bull Mastiff at class, Max is very big, loud and in your face and constantly barks.
On Saturday they were both at Flyball together and got on fantastically, they were playing together and Reuben even stood in the ring to encourage Max to come over the jumps.

It was great to see them both play together so I was very suprised to see that tonight Reuben would not entertain him at all and was quite snappy with him.

Class is held in a church hall and I wonder if this environment has an affect on behaviours?

a bit like dogs getting on when there off lead but feeling trapped when on lead

It could well be the fact as linda says of the space.

The church hall is confined, whilst at flyball its outside and there's more space x

I'd go for the confined space too, but maybe also less to keep them occupied and a slightly different social group of dogs ?


Church halls always have weird smell too

Reubs was on lead on Saturday, Max was being naughty and refusing to go back to his owner.
Last night they were both on lead

It could be any of the above but perhaps it could have been you? Were you holding the lead tight? If the other dog was getting on your nerves then perhaps you tensed up and Reuben reacted to it? We do it without thinking about it.

I've noticed that if I tense up at all when holding Ruby's lead she picks up on it straight away and her fur goes up at other dogs but if I'm totally relaxed and let the lead go slack she doesn't bother. I tensed up one day when a jack russell that I'm not sure about came over barking in her face and she reacted straight away.

It's just a thought, I'm not saying that's what it was, I'm not as clever as Adam spinner smile

We had a similar situation before.

Kai hated a boxer josh that went to puppy classes, yet he lived nearby and whenever we met up the hills they would run together off lead without any problems!

Never did figuire out why! Maybe to do with the dogs thinking they're 'top dog' in the hall x
