(Don't watch if you're upset by a dog squabble.) This video is making the rounds, apparently happened last weekend at a pet expo. It's interesting to me the comments, some people appalled at the handler kicking the dog, others appalled at the GSD starting a fight, very, very few people mentioning that the BC's behavior prior to even being left at the stay. To me that handler dropped the ball big time. Had no business leaving his dog. I'm also frankly surprised at the judge and stewards. Usually judges intervene when you can tell one dog is not only not on task in a way that's going to cause a scuffle. And BTW the one dog who held the stay FTW!!! My Bates would have reacted exactly like that GSD. He has surprised me in in the past by not taking the bait, but I would not count on it. If I were in that position, I would have excused myself and my dog - and have. No ribbon or title is worth that kind of bad experience for my dog or another dog.
