This has actually happened to us…You’re walking down the street with your dog, and some guy walks by apparently minding his own business. Your dog then begins to uncharacteristically act out of sorts, and instantly the guy jumps out of his skin – really triggering your dog now. Clearly, your dog knew from the start... Read more »
