Why Is My Aussie Constantly Attacked By Other Dogs?
My five year old male Aussie Tucker, has been attacked by other dogs on several occasions while we are on walks. Each time he was on a leash and we were walking on a neighborhood street and once it happened in my driveway when we were returning from a walk. All these dogs were pets, not strays and were either just running lose or would break from a fence to charge him.
Tucker is a very intense dog and because of this, we never let him run lose. There are a few dogs that he gets along with very well and these dogs are well trained and respectful to other dogs and people. He is great with people and is extremely intelligent (think this may be part of the problem)
I walk him everyday and now that the weather is warmer, it seems more dogs are lose and the attacks are happening more frequently. Obviously, there is something about Tucker that these dogs don't like but I am not sure what it is or how to fix it. Never had this issue with my other dogs.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
