Choose your dog's playmates carefully(NEVER go to offleash dog parks), and avoid putting him in situations with dogs that are "rude" in their behavior towards him (if the dog comes across to you as being pushy, obnoxious, snarky or short tempered, or has an "in your face" attitude, take your dog away from that situation).
Make sure that you use a "Nothing In Life Is Free" type approach and that your dog is well trained. Training helps teach a dog to work with you and will help show a dog that you are able to handle life situations.
