So I was walking Cookie with a friend of mine in the woods earlier today, and we came across 3 German Shepherds and a Staffie. Every time my friend saw a German Shepherd, she was very reluctant to walk down the path and insisted on taking a different route through the woods to avoid the German Shepherd. I agreed but tried to persuade her only a small amount of German Shepherds are aggressive, and it's about how you raise and train them. She reacts the same way with any Staffie. I can understand how she could be nervous, but it's a shame, as so many GSD and Staffies are really sweet. Has anyone else had similar experiences?
