You and your doggo are walking along the sidewalk in peace and relaxed. Suddenly, another individual is coming your way also walking with their doggo. Your buddy saw his buddy and starts to bark excitedly and lunges toward the other dog.
Not only does this type of behavior is rude and inappropriate, it could lead to someone or someone’s buddy becoming seriously injured. Also, you surely do not know how the other dog will react with your buddy’s enthusiastic greeting and can return an aggressive behavior.
Now, let us look at it from a different perspective:
You and your doggy are walking along as above, however, this time your dog just calmly walks by your side totally ignoring the other pair as they also walk by on their side of the sidewalk.
Isn’t this a much better scene?

However, you can also train older dogs to behave in walks but will take a little longer. No matter what age your dog is, learning to behave while around other dogs can save him and the other dog from any serious injury or fights.
