It's all the way down, but not rolling over -- like if you told him to down (except that he doesn't down on command yet), chin on the pavement, butt in line with the rest of his body. I can believe that he's sensing aggression, although neither dog we've approached has been aggressive towards him.
When the dog gets to him he gets up and stands very still with his hair slightly raised and his tail up but not wagging, while they sniff him, today the dog licked at him and he kind of turned his head away but didn't move away. Does that sound like submission?
Should I assume that he's sensing aggression, and keep him away from the dogs that cause this response?
