    DefaultTiny vent

    I am walking the dogs on leads down a country lane !

    A Labrador bitch off lead with her owner strolling behind her comes up to the dogs and attacks them twice.

    Any apologies ? Not a one

    I told them that if their F£$%^(ng dog is dangerous it should be on a lead !

    No comment

    That's all

    It wouldn't be so bad, but a couple of days previously my pups were off lead in the local park and met up with a Weimeraner that also attacked them ! Fortunately neither of mine are aggressive dogs and they just let it pass

    That really is all.....thank you for reading

    Have your dogs been properly socialized? Many times when another dog attacks its because of a sign that the dog gave off.

    My dogs are absolutely harmless. I always leash them up when I see someone coming. I don't know the other dogs behaviors or if people are frightened of dogs. It's a simple courtesy, that takes seconds to perform. I must have leashed my girls a dozen times when we were swimming a couple of days ago. It's part of being a dog owner.

    > Some people shouldn't be allowed to have dogs (or any other pets for that matter).

    I really hope Samson and Jasper are OK. Emma got attacked (for 7th or 8th time in her life, by different dogs) last summer by a lab bitch and she has just now came back to be confident around strange dogs again. Just like yours she's NOT aggressive by any means.

    Thinks like this just ruin the rest of the walk (and even the rest of the day), doesn't it.

    I agree Veronica

    My last post got lost in the ether but my boys don't have a bad bone in their bodies and would and have backed off from confrontation.

    How many dogs do they have to meet when they are without aggression to confirm that they have been adequately socialise ?

    That is very rude! But happens all to often, unfortunately.

    This has happened to Eddie a few times, always by the same breed, bulldog or boxer - the big ones, and he does nothing to incite it except breathe! The last time it happened he was busy staying out of the dogs way behind my back, he knew that dog was mean! And, yes it takes time to get his confidence back.

    I took Buddy over to a friends the other day. She has recently moved closer to me. If was the first time Buddy had seen any of her dogs. There were 2 Labs, 3 Wirehaired Pointers, and a 12 week old Spinnoni Italiano (sp). Three of them were unneutered male showdogs. I was a little concerned about taking Buddy into their territory. I shouldn't have been. Everyone got along just fine. All six were in her new house. Boy did we have fun. Goes to show you that dogs can be taught to get along without attacking another dog. Glad they weren't hurt.

    Oh my---you put down my feelings in a nutshell. It is simple courtesy and it is amazing how so many people just don't have it. I remember with my past dogs getting "My dog won't hurt yours--she's friendly." I'd yell back that mine weren't so friendly and they better get their dog before it gets bitten. I lived in a condo and had to walk them and they were attacked by dogs off leash which basically made them dog aggressive. There was another time when a jogger was running down the street and my neighbors dog was at her heels barking. The poor woman was petrified yelling she was afraid of dogs. This dog was maybe a foot in height and she was scared to death. Can't imagine a big dog coming up to her.

    Phoebe is finally on an electric fence and doing well. But, I am just waiting for the one dog off-leash who comes to great her. Hope they are friendly.

    Going off leash is great. I wish my dog was capable of it---wish I was capable of it. Just wish more people had the courtesy you described.
