I just got back from a walk on Mina and we had a run in with two loose dogs. We were walking past a house and before I had time to do ANYTHING there were two ACDs hovering over Mina. Both of them growling, with hackles up hovering over her. Mina immediately went into uber submissive mode and rolled on her back and started licking her lips while I yelled for the owner to come get their dogs. Everything turned out as well as it could have, Mina remained on her back while the owner came and got his dogs and we escaped without a fight. But what if Mina weren't uber submissive? What if she would have reacted or even just tried to stand her ground? Is it really that hard to keep your dog under control?
