I have dogs, but I am afraid of dogs ..This can't be normal.

I have 2 dogs. My male Akita is 125 pounds and my female Boxer is 50 pounds. THey are very good dogs. The other day my hubby and I were walking and we happened upon a dog, at his own home. He was not on a leash and the yard wasn't fenced in. He barked at me and I grabbed my husbands arm. I was afraid of him. He was harmless. I told the boy in the back yard to come and get the dog and he did. What is my malfunction? I love dogs, so how can I be afraid at the same time?

I would consider that normal. I like dogs but if one jumped out at me like that and growled I would be scared too. I hope you were ok Feona!

I think the fact that I know my dogs is probably the reason. But I do tend to get scared of other ones. I am alright, it just scared me. thank you.
