Maggie is becoming grumpier the older she gets. She is worse on lead but can avoid others. But even off lead she responds to friendly overtures with an air snap and clearly unfriendly body language. I get she hates boxers and labradors from past offence, but it is generalising and today a perfectly nice overture was rejected absolutely. Is this curable? Not sure how to manage it, I have made sure we don't stress but she is pain ion the butt around other dogs. Yet LOVES others. Not much of a player.
I have tried walking alongside other dogs and over the walk she does settle but doesn't actually get friendly, just ignores them rather than reacts to them.
She isn't biting but it is stressful.
I am pretty sure she would settle over time with an introduced dog to the house ( very tribal) but casual meet and greet she is a horror.
