I live in a town and we are to keep our dogs on a leash when out in public.
I always walk my dog on a leash...living in a condo that is how it is. My hava is well behaved on a leash...I'm so proud of her.
lately I have noticed a new person that has a much larger dog, a boston terrier and it is always hyper and pulling on the leash...as it pulls the woman along.
Yesterday I am walking my dog (on a leash)...I notice this same woman lets her boston terrier's lead extend really long so her big dog can get up close to my dog without even asking me this woman does this!!....then she says "aww my dog just wants to play with your dog." I am like what?? I immediately pick my dog up and go the opposite way. And say "no no!! oh no you don't!" "Please get your dog back away from my dog"....then I hear a sigh and geez from this woman.
My hav always hides behind me as she is scared of this big dog. The woman does not seem to get a clue or care.
what do I have to do to let this woman know I donnot want her dog near my hav? why do people think they can just help themselves to someone's dog? Everytime I see this woman with her boston terrier she is unable contain her dog.... the dog is always pulling the woman along and leads the way...right to my dog!! The woman gets upset that I wont let her big dog play with my hav...I always have to go other way.
I saw poor freddie and what happened to the poor guy
I fear this same sort of thing from aggressive dogs...esp with owners who have no control.
Any good ideas on the right thing to say to these kind of people?
they seem to think I am snooty or something as they give out a
sigh of geez when I say No please get your dog back.
Now I just avoid this woman & her boston terrier.
