Something scary happend yesterday. The dogs and I were out on a huge field park, doing our usual game of fetch. I didn't notice that there was a guy with his dog walking near us until Raigho decided to go up to them and investigate meanwhile Killian stood near me watching the stranger and his dog carefully.
The owner decided to let his dog off leash and I heard him say "go say hello" out loud before I could tell him it wasn't such a good idea (because Raigho isn't exactly that gentle when it comes to playing based on my experience with him and Killian). Raigho came up to the other dog and started sniffing him. Then out of nowhere the dog bared it's teeth and snapped at Raigho's face making him cry out loud. It only took one second before Killian rushed to the other dog and jumped on him with a menacing snarl.
I had to yell 'aus' in order for him to let go of the other dogs neck and order him 'platz' so he doesn't go after the dog again while the guy was pulling his dog from the collar. The owner put on his dogs leash and left. It was ignorant for the guy to let his dog off leash and say hi to another dog it's never met before in my opinion. He should've asked me for permission first and asked how my dogs handle meeting other dogs.
My hands couldn't stop shaking. Raigho wasn't helping much since he was pretty shaken up and ran away from the scene. I had to chase him down while Killian followed. Thank goodness he was okay. No puncture wounds on his face and neck. The other dog must've gotten Raigho's fur so he was pretty lucky.
Killian is a serious dog. He started training for protection since he was a wee pup and due to that he is very confident and will not back down from a challenge. This is the reason why I don't let him say hi to any dog since a dog's demeanor can change any second and you never know what will happen. This doesn't mean that he's dog aggressive. He is friendly and he's also good with other animals like horses, guinea pigs, chickens and cats. He's just serious about his job to protect his pack. When it comes to Killian protecting me, Raigho and my family. He's scary.
