    Hi, I have a deaf Dalmation. 2years old.
    When younger he would approach other dogs in a friendly way. They unfortunatly would growl or attack him, the usual reply from owners, they’ve not done that before. Now he goes for them before they can do it to him. I would like to stop this behaviour..
    Thanks Gill

      Hi Gill.
      Unfortunately when this happens to a young dog this habit is very hard to break.
      I would recommend that you begin by sitting on a park bench for example where there are high dog traffic and teach your dog to sit beside you in a calm fashion when it notice other dogs. You have to notice the dogs tells when it gets excited or aggressive and break it’s focus by pulling the leash quickly.
      When your dog stops paying attention to other dogs you can move on to dog meetings. Start slow with a older calm dog that can teach your dog how to behave.
      Of course if you feel like there is a chance that your dog or the other dog could hurt eachother you should contact an expert dog trainer to help you.
