She brought out another dog, and Reno started doing his growling thing - she wasn't expecting it, I don't think. She asked if he was growling at the dog, and I said yeah...she basically said to keep him away from other dogs, as he's at the age of "turning". I told her about the guy who let his dogs approach us and told her about Reno's reaction, and she said it was a dumb thing for me to do to allow them to approach, and that if Reno bit some dog we'd get blamed and it wouldn't be worth it. (which I know, but there wasn't much escaping them - the dogs were on flexi leads, and coming at us - owner doing nothing to stop them) That's why I'm looking for a safer way of getting him around other dogs. (through a fence at first?) She did hear him do his whining thing, though, and she went over to him and made him sit by her side, which we do as well, and he was quiet and still - for the most part.
I would think that without any sort of socialization, that he would get worse? What do ya'll think?
I'm trying to get him to do the "look at me" and "leave it" stuff...any suggestions on what I can do at home to help teach him this? So far, I've tought "leave it" by putting him on leash with high-value treats on the floor and made him leave them alone and giving him better treats when he did what he was told...but I've only done this inside so far. Any other methods to try? I do say it on walks when he's sniffing something I don't want him to and jerk him, which seems to have helped too. I haven't done much with "look at me" yet...only practiced it once.

my dog isnt dog aggersive, hes dominant(sp). He will not growl, look at, lunged, bark, or pull towards another dog. But he will fight another dog.
Your dogs sounds to be fearful.

1. to have your dog be able to interact with other dogs safely
2. to have your dog act sane when other dogs are in line of sight.
Those are very different goals.
if the people say their dog is friendly, say nice, but mine is not and he is in training, please keep your dog away..
