    Hi. Just wondering if anybody has any experience with dogs who get excessively over excited with other dogs?

    When Sammy (ridgeback x staffi) see's another dog, all he thinks about is going over there and trying to play with it. If not managed, he charges and almost throws himself at other dogs. He can play too rough, and is a little devil to recall!

    I manage this by recalling him before he see's the other dog and taking him over on a lead.

    However, has anybody had this with a dog and if so what did they do? Or does anybody have any suggestions as to how he can be calmed down? Unfortunately because of the way he looks, he does intimidate people.
