We are staying at my parent's condo untl our place is ready on Feb 1. There is a dog that does not like Chef D. Every time the other dog sees him the dog goes nuts. They have never even gotten close enough to sniff each other. Once the other dog starts barking and going after him Chef just walks away. He can't be bothered by bullies.
So today I went to take Chef out. As we come off the elevator the dog attacked Chef D. We were completely blindsided as we were coming out the door (they were off the left and out of view if you were in the elevator.) I was able to get Chef away, but not without a few cuts on his face and chin. I have to say I'm proud of how he listen to me to leave. I didn't even realize he was bit until after we got outside. Not sure if Chef got to the other dog. they went up the elevator. Chef is not generally aggressive, but it's possible he did in defense.
Anyone else have this problem? There are 2 other dogs who bark like crazy at Chef D also. Again they have never gotten close enough to sniff, so it's not like Chef did something to them. Does he just have one of those faces that makes other dogs crazy? Lucky for me, Chef just continues to walk if they start barking at him. He never even barks back at them (he did today, but hey he was attacked for coming out of an elevator).
In NOLA he was very well socialized with other dogs and people alike. The dogs in this building are just down right mean. Not even sure the point of this. We are moving out next week, I just wish the elevator doors were made out of glass so I could prepare. Now everytime the doors open I'm going to be scared he is going to be attacked for simply walking out of an elevator at the wrong time.
