I wish we had taken it with us yesterday. We went to a local walking trail, it's paved and by a river, where there are lots of other dogs. I'm a bit nervous to go there as many people let their big dogs off leash with the usual, "Don't worry, my dog doesn't bite.". I had my two sons with me though so I wasn't too concerned.
There was a lady there with a basset hound and a cocker spaniel and my guys started to bark, those dogs went nuts. Growling and pulling at their leashes, she really couldn't control them and was dragging them as hard as she could but it seemed to be all she could do to pull them away. I took my two around the front of my car so they couldn't see the dogs anymore and when we came back around she was gone.
We start off on the trail with my sister and her two little boys and encounter this lady again. She had to drag her dogs off the trail and into a grassy area, they were growling and barking like crazy! My dogs were barking and I would have used the Pet Agree then if I'd had it. I left the treats in the car so I didn't even have those to use as a distraction.
The question is though...why would anyone take dogs out that are that difficult to control??? I'd be terrified they'd hurt someone or something and I'd be helpless. She looked like she was about to cry.
