I worry about the same thing...
And it is time to go back to training. Daisy gets agitated and jumps on Riki, then he growls at her and they sound menacing. Since they cannot back up their bite, yikes.
When we were in training, Riki was taught to sit and/or walk by without barking. He actually got the point where he did very well. When a dog walked by at first, I would have him sit and I would give him a treat. He was a terrible barker at other dogs. I also have to be careful I am not pulling on the leash as he reacts to my "fear." If he starts now, I tell him easy easy and he usually listens.
The challenge is Daisy, so I think we will go back to our group training class and work with our trainer. I don't like her jumping up on him and agitating him as he is the one with the huge bark.
