Does anyone have advice about controling your golden around other dogs? My dog is eight years old and he is a fixed male. We adopted him and prior to living with us he was with other dogs all the time. We have been noticing now that when we take him on walks or when other dogs are walking and he is in the car he wants to growl, or go after the dogs. While we think he wants to play...you never really know what they are thinking. I am nervous to take him to public places becasue I don't want to cause a scene. Does anyone have any tips?
