Hi everyone, I'm currently training my 4 year old rescue lurcher who used to love to play with other dogs but since being jumped on by a friendly but over eager Labrador 6 months ago, has become snappy with very bouncy dogs who approach her.

I've used distraction techniques such as recalling her & playing with her when I see a bouncy dog in the distance & she's happy to come back but last week she went over to play with a dog she knows & is happy to play with, but he was with another dog that she didn't know. Suddenly, without apparent provocation, she bit the unknown dog on the hind quarters! I instantly recalled her & she came back without further fuss, but she had drawn blood from the other dog. The owners were very understanding but I'm a little at a loss as how to proceed with her training.

Any comments, ideas would be welcome.

You need to find better playmates/role-models for her to interact with and regain her socialization skills. Do it with one good dog at a time.
