|I've noticed that if Kato is playing with another dog and the play gets a little rough, each dog steps it up a notch until it crosses that line between play and just being mean. It's quick and no dog gets seriously hurt, but it does look/sound nasty.
The dogs get over it quick and soon learn how to work with each other better.
Sanka, on the other hand, has gotten snapped at for what would look like no reason. But it's actually the dog picking up on a very subtle thing. Sanka will air hump. It usually doesn't bother other dogs. I can see it coming. He just gets this look in his eyes. The dogs that don't like it pick up on it faster than I can and will tell him off right quick. It's amazing how good they can read each other.
So, like mentioned above, there may have been something you just didn't pick up on. The first time Sanka got bit for the air humping thing, I hadn't the slightest clue what happened. Now I can look back on it and realize it.
Kato also usually just gets out the way or corrections or fights, but every now and then, he's just on his high horse. And any dog getting snarky with him will be met with equal snark. Don't know why exactly, but it happens.
I like to think we all have those moments. I can remember saying things during a basketball game I'd normally never say. Just got caught up in the moment I guess.
