on the other side of the coin, lots of big dogs don't know how to interact and play with small dogs.
a neighbor has two friendly lab girls, smallish, 45 lbs each. they didn't know what to make of my ollie. he didn't bark at them and didn't run away. one of the girls would nudge Ollie in the hindquarters or midsection, I think to see what he'd do. He'd just look back at her like, "what?"
5 big neighborhood dogs walk together twice a week. big doby, greater swissy, newfy... can't remember all of them. so ollie was like 6-8 months old, and they all wanted to meet him (the humans), he came out, and all 5 big dogs, surrounded him. Ollie obliged and stood still, even lifted his leg so they could smell his junk. about 3 minutes of one way sniffing. ollie had enough, put his leg down and growled quietly at them, to back off...
the doby promptly, fell into a deep play bow.
