Great advise from Adara & mmctaq.

NewDobyLuva - the lunge is not normal and you have some work ahead of you.
While not justified, your dog was fearful and possibly viewed the 5 on 1 very negatively & threatening.

The retraining as discussed above, should start on a 1-1 ratio and work up to bigger distractions.
- kids need to be instructed to approach this dog in single file / and gain success, moving forward

You have to remain calm & focused on your dog's trigger.
- the owner can help to clam the dog with their own confidence, projected voice instructions, touch, etc.
