I have a good size APB, and when we take him to the dog park, he always take
the submissive role, allowing a little beagle (it seems his best bud at the
park) to always take the top when playing.
Of course, he is fixed, and very laid back, but when pushed far enough by
our other APB pup, he will let him know who is "da boss". >> Stay informed about: Dominance Issue
