How to help puppy cope with other dogs
So I have a 5 month old cockapoo who barks a lot if he sees another dog, and sometimes certain people. Generally while he is barking like crazy if he sees something he backs up and tries to run away, for example I just had a small incident with my neighbor's bulldog. We had both let our dogs out at the same time so my puppy started barking, my neighbor did not have his bulldog on a leash so he came over which scared the shit out of my puppy, and the barking became yelping and running to the door trying to get in. I let him in to separate him from the other dog where the barking then resumed.
My main concern is I think he is going to escalate issues with other dogs with this type of behavior, he has gotten into a few fights that didn't look like play fighting with 2 other dogs, I separate him when something like that happens, no injuries occur, so maybe they are just playing? Should I be worried about this behavior? I think the obvious answer is he needs more socializing, but every time I have tried something like that occurs. Around most people he doesn't act crazy and actually loves to cuddle with my wife and I, I also might just be paranoid, so H&A, recommend on for my puppy!
