Tonight in our puppy class Charlie was playing "nicely" with another golden retriever puppy that is about the same age. Both puppies are male. We've been in this class for 6 weeks now. Anyway, after what seemed to be simply puppy play (smelling, nipping, wrestling, etc) Charlie really growled at the other puppy. Both were on leashes, so my husband was able to pull Chalrie away but the growling really bothered me. Charlie hasn't done that with other dogs (both male and female, big and small). Any advice? I really don't want an agressive dog (not that anyone does) so how can I tell play vs. agression?
