I've had dogs charge me and my dogs before, thankfully my guys where well trained and listened to there leave it amazingly (thank god as my one was VERY DA) i was the one that chased there dog back home. people got mad saying there dog was nice, but i informed them mine wasn't and what would have happened had the dog gotten close enough to my girl and legally it would be there dogs fault as he was off leash.

dunno situation would have went down ALOT diffrent if my girls didn't have such a stong leave it. :S

Yep, was not one, but three dogs took after myself and our dog Mickey the AmStaff. The only thing I could do was yell at the dogs and try to kick 'em when they got too close, the little bastards were moving all around us in different directions trying to bite Mickey as she was trying to defend herself. I so wanted to let Mickey go off leash to defend herself, but she was so furious I think she would have k/o'ed all three dogs. We just keep moving, kicking and yelling until we got away....Most likely the best idea...

i had a shephard attack me and loki when he was 11-12 weeks in the frest beside my home, I had loki onleash and and teh shephard wasnt , I seen him coming and the owners werent far behind they yelled up ahead its ok they were friendly. The male attacked him and I had to get himoff the owners were useless. and then a few weeks later an offleash black lab attacked him { not as serious as the shephard} but still.the owner got her lab off him and checked with me that loki was ok she was a bit more responsible then the other owner and I think it woke her up as to how her dog acts.

Crazy story. Very tough situation. Seems most dogs eventually give up and it was smart to keep a cool head.

After those incidents how is your dog with other dogs now?

Ah, there are a few neighbors that think its ok to let their dogs walk without a leash even though there is a leash law. Kangol is highly DA. On several different occasions one dog in particular, whose owner lets it walk like 5 houses ahead, has tried to approach me. On all those occasions I have told the owner he needs to leash his dog because I won't be responsible for what happens. I took it upon myself to call AC and report the situation just to cover my bases. I don't usually walk until 11pm to avoid situations like this but every once in awhile I still see the dog, but never the owner because he doesn't walk up as far as the dog. He calls the dog's name and she turns around . Thank goodness Kangol doesn't always see her. Anyway, about six months ago when his dog tried to approach Kangol I told him that just because he thinks his dog is nice doesn't mean my dog isn't an a hole and that I would tase his dog if it came anywhere near me. :)

I walk with dog mace for that reason. I will protect my dogs in anyway including kicking the poodle that comes after them ;) If anything I am saving their dogs life, my dogs may not start it but they will finish it. I have even maced the owner when he got mad at me for macing his dogs, then called the cops. He left real quick!

he's actually great with other dogs with the exception of when rocky was around they couldnt be together. But then again I dont leave him unattended with other dogs and we try and limit any dogs he comes in contact with now just for his safety as we found out what he is capable of when him and rocky got into it. he plays with our other dogs here though and hasnt had an issue as of yet.

My story.

Over the weekend just hours til the super bowl, me and my wife decided to take our dogs to a local park on the edge of town. I like this park due to its being somewhat secluded, rarely visited and forested. We have one pup of 7 months and another adult about a year and a half. To a certain extent my wife claims the adult and I the pup. So that day my wife was walking the adult Lex and I was walking the pup our usual routine. My wife was ahead of me by about 20 yards. She suddenly stopped and looked back to me and telling me to look ahead. I could see 2 dogs barreling down the hill with their owner running behind.
Let me say Lex is an intense dog but will not start a fight unless it's brought to him.
In my mind I was thinking of how bad this could end up. The lead dog was big, probably 100-120 pds (my would be a shepherd mix, probably overfed) The dog behind seemed less of a threat, just curious. As the various scenarios ran through my head I handed the leash to my step son and hustled to get to my wife. I saw Lex stand his ground ahead and by the time I got there the other dog was already slamming into Lex mouth wide open. I thought I saw Lex about to go down but instead he had absorbed most of the force and twisted his body around to catch the other dog by the ear and side of the head. The fight was over before me and my wife could react. Lex had latched onto a dog am
almost twice his size (he's about 67 pds) while the dog yelped like he was dying. The other owner came over without a word. He tryed pulling Lex's jaws apart. I asked him not to touch my dog as we knew what to do. My wife grabbed Lex's hind legs as I grabbed his collar and yelled the drop it commanded. After 30 seconds Lex released. The owner again without a word grabbed his dog and walked off. I'd say the whole thing lasted 1-2 minutes. Immediately following Lex was back to himself cuddling with my stepson in the back ofthe car. Neither dog seemed seriously hurt, unless the other dogs ear has internal damage.

Yes.

It was just a min pin though. Bruno kept looking back,trying to bite it,but I kept making him walk forward,and eventually the dogs owner called the dog back,and it left us alone.

sadly this happens to us a lot. It is so stupid and I hate that the dog is normally follwed by a humnan saying oh he is friendly. I am sorry, but a dog, no matter what shape and size charging at you is bound to make my leashed dog on edge! What sucks is when I tell them to get their dog, my dog doesnt like to make new friends, they automatically think my dog is a bad killer pit and its so frustrating!

Gargamel does not like unleashed dogs since a really bad fight that happened with 2 unleashed dogs. Since then (his 5th time being attacked while on leash by unleashed dogs) he does not do well with any new dog he meets. Oh and its not like I want to do any introducing but some people just cross the street towards us and approach and I can only run away (not fast at all especially dragging a nosy 60lb's of muscle away from said dog) or let them sniff, fast and move away, fast. (and everytime he was attacked by an offleash dog, I call AC and report them. He is now my friend, and I am extremly lucky that he loves pit bulls)

I carry a small, loud air horn, I would feel soo soo bad about tazing or getting doggie mace in my pups face accidenlty. The air horn kinda freaks them all out, but it lets me take control of the situation. I use to just pick Gargamel up, but someone said I should not do that in case the other dog attacks and I am screwed!

if your dogs starts to get over aggressive after a fight just correct him. if learns that is not the way to react he should go back to normal. It does sound like he got over it and I am happy no one got hurt. Your dog was on leash his was not, it was his fault. Break stick is always a good idea, it gets them off fast but again you handled the situation the way it needed to be handled and I have major respect for you. So many people do not know how to break up a dog fight and end up getting themselves or other hurt.
