So where to begin. Loaded up Pandora for our trip to the park yesterday. Took her to the ball field that has a gate so she could run free. There is a short path we have to take to get to the ball field so as we where walking we come upon a woman behind us with an ankle biter(chi). The field also has a walk track around it. As i was approaching the ball field to let her run this lady passes with her dog. My first thing to do was to tell Pandora to sit and stay. As to not try to go over and play with the dog. She done as told (i was so proud cause I am still working on these with her. She's a stubborn puppy). This woman had to pull her dog on around the track cause she was trying to come toward Pandora but she just sit there. I was such a proud MAMA! That just made my day to know that when it really is called for she will do it.

YAY~~PANDORA!!!  You reacted just exactly like I would have done...a good 'sit/stay' in a questionable situation w/ another dog---especially a small uncontrolled one---was an excellent thing to do.  It takes the tension out of the situation for both dogs, because they aren't standing there glaring at each other, it reinforces a GOOD behavior in your doberman, it gives your dog something to focus on besides the little dog on the other leash, and most of all, it lets anyone that happens to be watching KNOW that your doberman is well mannered and knows how to behave.  Kudos to you and Pandora!
