frozen with fear...charging dog
usually when i walk django, we walk thru different neighborhood. i am always aware of our surroundings, dogs especially. if a dog is off leash, we cross the street, if a dog is off leash and coming towards us, i pick him up and we go the other way.
well tonight we were walking, approaching a house that had a med. hedge in the front. he had a bit of lead on the leash, i hear someone say,no cody stay here and before i know it, this huge black dog comes running from around the hedge charging us at full speed.
i froze, it happened so fast, django was too far on the lead to pull back and pick up, he lunged at this dog, they had a teeth showing growling session, somehow the big black dog backed away and django just stood in place for a few minutes. i was scared to death of the dog.
my heart was racing, i truly didin't know what to do. i need to be more prepared for the next encounter, hopefully there won't be one. any tips?
