Re: Am I really stepping on other people's culture?

It's a difficult one, on the one hand in a culture where dogs are companions etc it's understandable that the idea of eating them makes me feel uneasy, however, to other cultures cows are sacred, what must they think of us?

It's important not to confuse reactiveness and aggression. A reactive dog is a dog who will display a bunch of behaviors (lunging, barking, growling and carrying on) until the perceived threat goes away or he/she moves away from it. A aggressive dog is one who, without trigger will quietly and sudd...
