IS there a book on "How to avoid moron dog owners 101"?? I think one needs to be written. Yesterday My daughter and I took Bella for a walk around the city and stopped at a park for my daughter to play at. There is a NO DOGS allowed sign inside the fenced in play structure so Bella and I sat on a park bench and watched our girl. We were sitting there minding our own business when an older gentleman walking a little bichon was rapidly approaching us. Bella was just sitting at my feet and about 10 feet away was his dog....is your dog friendly he asked? I said yes BUT.........he dropped his dogs leash to just run over to us before I could finish saying what I wanted to say. So, here comes the little white dog over to Bella and luckily Bella is very friendly with dogs but she is just a pup still and as we all know the non DA can be short lived in the pits but also with bullys. I grabbed his dogs leash as he came closer to us and gave his dog back to him. I said that I would never just let your dog approach any dog by letting his leash go because you never know how the other dog will react. I said some dogs can be dog aggressive and then your little dog could have been hurt. He just looked at me and said "oh, okay" lets go boy these people don't want to play with us.....REALLY??? :hammer: And then I also always seem to come across people lately who are walking towards us and say.....My dogs friendly....you can say "hi". And here I am walking away from them saying "no, that's okay" my dog doesn't need to say hi" :cool: I just get so irritated with people like that! Okay I vented :) Anybody want to share there encounters with MORONS feel free :D

Lol! Being educated in the dog world really makes the morons show through....But amongst many things people couldn't grasp. They never ever could grasp "It's not in our jurisdiction." or "We're full, sorry."....People can be frustrating.

Amen to that :)! It has always amazed me how many people who own dogs have no clue about them.....I know we all need to start some where and we live and learn through trial and error but I just can't believe the ignorance out there. I have many moron dog owners in my neighborhood. Dogs that never go for walks or see anything further than there yards. Lots of dogs around my area with lots of behavior issues but the owners don't do anything with them as far as training so they just sit in a house all day and go crazy. No mental or physical stimulation unless you call looking out a window "mental stimulation"......poor dogs. I feel so bad for all of them :(

That's sure true, a lot of people feel very little responsibility towards their animals. It's a shame. They don't enjoy interacting w/ them, I don't get why they want a pet at all.
My son found a toy jack Russell stray recently, and when we couldn't find the owner, we felt responsible for finding a good home for her, we didn't want to give her to just anyone who wanted her just to get her out of the way. luckily we did.
An old buddy of mine used to say that 95% of people aren't worth knowing ( so he wouldn't be surprised that u meet a lot of morons)...Come to think of it, he was a little cheerfully aggressive too, sort of like a human pit bull.
The dogs make us easier to approach of course, I hadn't had a dog for many years, until getting my male 15 mos ago...I couldn't help but notice that people who would never approach me before, suddenly felt very comfortable demanding my time. Couldn't decide for a while whether I liked that or not...Guess all in all, I do. Morons and all.
But, rocco is an impressive little guy, and goes Nuts when he encounters most other dogs ( no barking, no aggression tho, and I work on this over the top reaction to dogs w/ him every day) , so NOBODY sends their unleashed dog his way. That's something I haven't had to deal w/ since he was a very young pup. The female is another story, she's easy to meet.

yeah those are the worst. Gargamel does not do well with dogs coming at him off leash. He is OK when they are both leashed but off leash dogs he wants no part of. I have a golden who lives 3 houses down from us who has come at Mel and bitten him. He is a barker and never fail when we walk by he is in the window barking up a storm. Now Gargamel is always on guard if he is out and totally on edge.

The other day I am walking and didn't notice the owner had both his dogs out on leash up the street, I was too buys looking in their yard where they are usually tied out. I cross the street to be on the other side and his golden starts growling when we are a ways away. He says "wow they really don't like each other huh" I said, "not that it matters, but I think its your dog who has the problem with mine" and he decides to cross the effin street. I am like "are you effing serious dude I don't need your dog stressing us out, get away, why are you coming towards us???" He said well they are neighbors and should learn to get along and maybe my dog will stop barking at him. you take him on so many walks it seems he is always barking. Making it like its MY fault I walk my freaking dog and HIS dog barks up a storm. UGH it took all I could muster to just walk away without telling him how stupid he is.

I am sure we all have many many stories about this situation, unfortunately. Thats just one of mine.
