Bazoaxe - because they don't think you're about to attack a member of their pack. My belief is that some dogs get aggressive towards runners because in its tiny doggy brain they equate someone running near their human (and therefore member of their pack, indeed hopefully pack leader), with a potential attack. So they get in first to protect their human from you, the nasty aggressive runner.

I would have thought its the dogs who think they are the pack leader that become aggressive to others.

Got something to say?
