I recently read an article provided by another member regarding rude behavior in other dogs and how our dogs might react. Most people would find this behavior 'agressive' however it states that the other dog is just invading personal space and my dog is just reacting (telling them to get outta my face). This is completely understandable and raised some questions about my own dogs rudeness.
We had a friend over who brought her dog, Lola (a female Shi-Tzsu sp??). The foster parent we had picked her up from informed us that she was a very dominant female. I hadn't really noticed it until she was around Lola. Lola would be sitting on the couch and she'd jump up there and try and push her down by pressing firmly on her neck. Lola would growl and snap at her which would scare her away for a minute but would constantly be at her. I thought she'd get over it after a while because Lola wasn't having it but she kept at it the entire time.
Am I supposed to put her in another room if she's acting like this? Is she trying to dominate? Will she, most likely, be like that with all dogs?
