I agree with carina that with unknown dogs it neads to be controlled. Daisy is a lot better I said it to the trainer and she gave me name of someone else for small dogs.
WeeGrace, I never thought you were anti-Boxer at all. Sorry, I did not mean for you to think that. I WILL say, I've been around many different breeds in my lifetime and the Boxer definitely has a unique (& seemingly rough) way of playing. Boxers are powerful, but most don't know it. Actually, most non-Boxer breeds will not play with them for that reason. They are a powerful breed but don't know it.
I just took the time to teach my Boxers how to behave around other animals. They even love cats. Generally, Boxers are absolutely wonderful family dogs...most seem to have an instinctive passion about children. Mine had never been around children until my grandkids came along, but have shown loyalty to all of them. Heck, my 3 yr. old can walk the older one and control her (under supervision, of course).

But, then again, I'm an owner who believes the dogs should be under the control of their owner.

Ok am I the only one who thought, "Good girl Grace!" For turning and growling at the other dog?

Puppies have no manners and sometimes, rambunctious puppies, need other puppies to step forward and lay down the law. They all want to scuttle back to mama at first, but they need to learn to socialize with other dogs.

However.....

If I paid for a class that was suppose to be all small breed (because that is what I was comfortable with) then that is what I would want....

I never said otherwise....just said it in a different fashion.... & I was just making the point that dogs of different sizes can get along with training. I did initially say these puppies, of such tender ages, should have never been allowed to roam about with no control.

Might want to re-read what I said..... I never disagreed with the gist of the discussion.

That sounds a lot like what happened to my Cici at her puppy class :\ It happened the week before class was over. I learned my lesson and I will never let that happen again, I'd rather interfere even if the trainer says not to. Just make sure she's doing fine now and plays appropriately with other dogs now, because Cici turned reactive and does not like dogs at all now, so now I have to dedicate all my time in her training so hopefully one day she will be able to interact without feeling threatened.
I don't know why other people would let their pups intimidate another pup even if they are just playing, when one has their tail between their legs it should be a sign to stop IMHO :\.

Debra fully agree that dogs who know each other and are in controlled situation get on great daisy and her cousin who is a retriever have a wonderful relationship she is like her cousins baby lol. The retriever is very protective of her

As regard to how she will react to other dogs ill did out this weekend as we are going to her cousins house. Hopefully she will jus be as interactive and happy as usual.

Yep I was proud sort of when she stood up for herself but she was very uncomfortable with the situation!!! She is her usual bubbly self and currently fighting with her new dress lol.
