Did your vet check Riley? Years ago I took my first dog to training classes. There were about a dozen dogs of various sizes and I was careful not to get my dog, a siberian huskey, close to the several little dogs. She did great with both people and dogs, but... didn't want to take any chances. What I should have worried about was the doberman in class. It would growl at my dog any time we walked by and we did that as seldom as possible. The instructor insisted that either my dog or I were doing something to cause this. We weren't. The problem occured when we first had to do off leash recall. When my dog started to me, the dobe went after her and grabbed her which of course was "my fault". We then found out that the dog was "attack trained" and the owner was the instructor's best friend. We dropped out of the class and my dog continued to be very well tempered with both people and dogs. Months later our vet discoved a healed puncture wound on her head which he was sure was made by a tooth.
