Hello lovely people, I am currently looking for some fellow support as this morning I had a very upsetting walk with my dog Nacho. He is 7 years and grew up in Mexico. I recently brought him over to the UK as I decided to relocate to London. His sole role in Mexico was to protect and hunt animals that came in from the jungle. I never taught him this but appreciated the help so I never dissuaded him from it either. Now that we are in the UK unfortunately his behaviour no longer fits in. In general he gets overexcited when he meets dogs in the park and plays rough. He even growls and barks whilst playing. He always has. He has made a few friends in the park and in general is friendly, however this morning he was approached by a small dog whom he then attacked. The owner verbally abused me, saying that "my f-ing dog needs a muzzle. If I ever see it again without a muzzle I'm going to report you". I didn't even mention that he was on the lead and it was her dog that approached mine because in actual fact he is unpredictable. I never know if he is going to play or attack other dogs. I am quite upset by all of this. I have ordered a muzzle and a NO DOGS coat so that other dog owners don't allow their dogs to approach us but I also fear not allowing him to socialise will make the situation worse. He was in a training school but they have said he can longer participate as they would be endangering other dogs at the school and suggested I contact a behaviourist. Does anyone have any similar stories? I really need some comforting words at the moment. Thank you.
