Dachshunds and Pit Bulls on the North Texas Prairie
Sometimes dogs have an "off" day. Sometimes they're going through a phase. And sometimes they are just not too dog friendly. My old agility dog, Fel, didn't like strange dogs, but we kept going to class--just made sure everyone knew to give her some space so she didn't act up. It was fine; there were other dogs there who weren't friendly, so we all kept a respectful distance. The class was very organized and there was always lots of space, so it was not hard to keep all the dogs separate.Dozer is a whole other story. We took him to agility classes when he was young, but when he started acting like a jerk in class, we dropped him out. (We felt he wasn't really enjoying it anyway. Turns out we were right; he's a homebody, through and through.) Every dog is different!
Everyone has a bad day. Sometimes I think when the weather changes they start to feel their oats.
