Do you think she's taking crap from her "friends" because she's known them longer?

IMO you should train her to not even look at other dogs. If you're doing flyball then that's what she should be concentrating on. Period. You have to make her stay focused.
I do not tolerate any snarking from either of my dogs. It's not acceptable behavior. I do my best to not let them get to that point. If they do they get a NO and a correction, preferably a bonk lately.
There is nothing wrong with supervised play with other dogs. I just think when it comes to training classes, competitions, public encounters that only the best behavior is acceptable when it comes to our breed. JMO
Most owners are idiots...sorry ...so you have to keep your eye on them as well. I'm always asking people to not approach me and my dog with out me being aware of it.
Our dogs don't need to be all friendly with other dogs. They have us and that's enough. Again, JMHO.
Many people try and think too much about the APBT being non-DA, or "Friendly" with other dogs. IMO, anyone who owns an APBT should consider the dog DA, regardless of incidents or other reason. This breed, regardless of how hard people try, will always have DA in it

I will not do agility off leash unless it's a fenced in area like "Over Rover" where the Bull-ympics was held. They have 4 trials a year, two of which I can compete in. That's enough for me! I barely have time now to train.

And I totally agree that our dogs need to be the best behaved, by far. It's in Inara's future to get her CGC, and hopefully her TT. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to keep her a good representative of the breed.
