|I think you may have to watch closely and learn the signs that something is going to happen BEFORE it happens. Then redirect, separate and teach and alternative, more appropriate behavior.
I know The Pug sometimes gets a bit bully. She starts by tracking a dog with her eyes, very still, only her head moves. I have learned that as SOON as I see that, I need to call her (I have classically and operantly conditioned her name), then ask her to do something for me (a simple "touch" usually does it), then tell her how wonderful she is and the moment is over.
BEFORE I figured it all out, she could be on a dog quicker than you can blink. Now she just gets a little still, then looks at me for direction.
Is there anything you can think of that triggers it? With The Pug, it is a bit of resource guarding her people. Is it a resource? A certain place? Something the other dog does? A time of day? What is the common denominator?
