My cocker spaniel puppy is 4 months old, and is well behaved in most areas and has an excellent tempermant. However if he hears another dog bark he barks back and softly growls under his breath. he does the same if he hears a dog on the TV. We have 2 older dogs but he has never had a problem with them and they do not react to barking dogs. I want him to be like that. I have a few ideas but im not sure which one to go with so i thought i'd ask first so i dont try everything and confuse him!
He doesn't go to attack other dogs, if he encounters them he gets excited and wants to play, but if they bark behind a fence etc he will bark back.
