I was going to make this thread last Monday but totally forgot till a recent thread. When i had Barney, I never came across one anti social dog but now i've seen a large rise even worse at companion shows. Last Saturday I was at a shelter show and there was at least 3-4 fights by the end of the day about the same last year, I saw many dogs growl and snap. I was in the ring with a jack russel twice the first time it was opposite me and I watched it trying to attack another dog while being handled by a 12 year old, this dog kept lunging. The second time she was next to Maya and the dog tried to do the same, I had to move away as I did not want to cause a fight as Maya won't tolerate it. The stupidest part was that second time was for friendliest dog :blink: thankfully the judge saw the dog wanted to get at another dog and never placed the dog. Monday we met several dogs, there was 1 fight and many growls at Maya or even the Chinese crested I was walking around, some full on lunging to get at other dogs. I was told of the dogs is apparently a top show dog but she always has issues with the dog if other dogs approach hers, it was a Euraiser. I thought the idea of these shows was for friendly dogs but I'm really starting to not want to go to any if they are gonna keep being like this.
