    Are you still having inter-dog issues?

    I personally would explore behavior modification, both human and dogs, a bit more. If you want tips on training this to a manageable level, let me know :)

    Koko, you need not defend your story nor your stance. Once again, I was trying to STOP the speculations regarding whether the dog you encountered was unprovoked or not. That was my intent: to STOP...
