I have a problem. I've been keeping Rory in our other building away from our dogs. I want him to bond with me, and chill since this is a big change. Well, I let him meet Bailey, Delilah, and Shiloh through the fence today. He had his hackles up but he put them down when he sniffed Bailey. Then he sniffed Delilah, but when Shiloh came over, he started growling and barking, so I took him away. Later again today, I let him meet just Bailey through the fence, and he was fine, but then all of a sudden he just started growling and barking. My mom walked him and let him meet Shiloh, and she said he was fine. His tail was held high the whole time, but it wagged when he wasn't growling or barking. His owner told me he hasn't met a lot of dogs, but he was very playful with them. I know she wasn't lying. I'm thinking he just hasn't met enough dogs and isn't sure about them…? We are getting him neutered Tuesday, could him being intact have anything to do with this? Right now I'm teaching him to sit, lay down, and watch me. After he recovers from being neutered, I can start some training. I don't know how to tell if he is dog aggressive, scared, or just needs to meet more dogs… What does this sound like to you? There aren't any positive dog trainers around to help me…. After he is neutered, should I just take him on walks and have Delilah on the other side of the road and work with him like he is dog agressive?? Also, I think him wanting to herd will be a problem. He'll want to herd the dogs. How would I work with that?
