BonaFide Dog Academy Training Tip of the Day
Many dogs who are perfectly comfortable meeting other dogs when they are off leash get very nervous when meeting a new dog while they are on leash. this is because the leash restricts the dog's ability to move around, investigate the new dog appropriately, and, if need be, move away from the dog if things aren't going well. Never force your dog to meet another dog while walking him on leash. If he acts scared or uncomfortable, respect that and move on without allowing the dogs to get close to one another. Forcing an on leash meeting may very well end up causing more problems than it is worth.
