LOL, good answer! It's the truth, some people have a lot of nerve to try and turn it on other people when they were the one in the wrong. I had an incident the other morning when an off leash came up to me and my dog, my mindset it to first control my dog and calmly walk away from the area, if the dog escalates I will escalate and try to ward the dog off, if that doesn't work me and my dog/dogs will defend ourselves and not be victims.
One day, some idiot had his Border Collie purposely try to stalk me and my female Bulldog. The jerk was over 60 yards away from his dog and I had my dog on a long line and on a down stay. I waited for the owner to call his dog back but the dog charged my female, BC was lucky my girl wanted to play, he went running to his owner when he tangled with her for a couple of seconds. The owner also finally started running over to get his dog. No apology from the owner as he inspected his pooch and I held up my long line to indicate to him that he should do the same.
