Coming out of the woods today we practically walked into a dog who was...well let's say less than friendly shall we? On leash and under physical control so no harm done, just lots of noise and lunging. Anyway, for the first time since I've had him Spencer reacted badly. His hackles went up, he stiffened and he made those huffing noises. I carried on walking, encouraged him to come with me and rewarded him when he did. He kept turning to look back with a bit more huffing but I kept encouraging him along and rewarding him for walking with me. I didn't make a big deal of it, just a "let's go" and a finger snap, same thing I do when I want him to come with me at any other time. Did I handle that right? Anything else I could have done or should do in similar situations? He was his usual friendly self with all the other dogs we saw so I assume it was the fact this one was having a go that caused him to react but I'd rather him ignore it than react back.
