Pack and myself were enjoying this evening out on back patio after hottest day of year when we heard small dog(s), blood curdling squeals and commotion! This got Spock and Eva alerted and upset. Sounded at first like couple coyotes were attacking a neighbor's small dog(s)?
Looked over fence toward street and saw some familiar dog walkers cautiously headed past house. Pulled this video clip off Nest camera and was able to review commotion. Turned out a man with three small size dogs on leashes was headed up the street when they approached a couple walking a white bulldog (behind car across street), then all hell broke loose!

(Our (2) Dobes and neighbor's (2) Great Danes chimed in at 0:44s)
I pass this white bulldog daily on my walks with Spock and Eva and there is never any problem. All always pass by peacefully. Those three small dogs are new to walking on our street. At least these three dogs weren't on Flexi-Leads, however they almost managed to pull the owner into a foray with the bulldog. Obviously these (3) particular dogs shouldn't be walked together with that kind of behavior.
As mentioned in another thread, I normally walk our two Dobes on separate walks, unless I have my wife or daughter with me, as second handler. The dogs need their own time with me and I need the extra exercise! I have seen multiple dogs get worked up, when walking with one handler, feeding on each other, just like in the video.
Even Spock and Eva did once, when I walked them together, coming out of our front door, headed to nearby park. They saw two squirrels on front walkway of our property, got excited, then started talking smack to each other, loud. Back inside house for one of them!
That's the day my double Dobe walking stopped! Didn't want to chance having to handle two Dobes with an aggressive, loose, rogue dog approaching! Eva would be behind me cowering for cover and Spock would be out front telling Fido to bring it on!
