Dog scuffle


First off I would like to say I did not take these photos or post these photos to promote dog fighting, but rather to understand what caused this scuffle. Neither dog was injured. One dog dominated the other and it was over.

My first thoughts were, just what did this lady think was going to happen when she walked up to this other dog which appeared to be a stranger? I think I would have kept them just out of reach of each other to see how they would react. Both dogs seemed to be of good nature and trusting.

Notice how the dog on the left with a tight lease looks tense and appears aggresive. The dog on the right stands tall with head up in a dominate relaxed position, but the dog on the left ignores this and tries to get closer.

Again the dog on the left has a tight lease and looks stressed where the dog on the right looks relaxed with a loose lease showing no fear or tension.

I'm not sure which gog started to scuffle but I believe it was the dog on the left with the tight lease and it was over in a few seconds as the relaxed dog dominated the other dog by holding it down.
