Allowing dogs to run around in a city park without leashes: questionable actionable.

Having a dog, and letting it run free in a public place, is like owning an assault rifle.

Agreed.

P.S. I will kill your dog, if I have to.

OK the funny part is that about 5 houses down we have a nice city park which includes a nice, big, partially wooded disc golf course. And of course I let my dog run around without a leash. My dog is trained to come when I call though and he listens to me plus has an extreme 'leave it' that keeps him from any stray frisbees.

He isn't really used to chasing frisbees anyway so he isn't really attracted to them- I have tried throwing frisbees for him because I can throw them further with less effort, but they are WAY too easy for him to destroy. Any normal frisbee he can immediately crack in half. The black kong frisbee was also easily destroyed...

Yea we go leashless all the time- it is why I love winter because all our great city parks are empty. I never do this around busy streets and we always leash up when we are going to pass someone. Never had a problem.

I carry an entire roll of bags with me to clean up after my dog. And in the dog's defense, my local disc golf players have a problem with leaving bottles (occasionally broken!) around the park.

My grandfather built himself a private 9-holf course on his farm. Let me tell you, the first few rounds were disastrous. Very quickly young child Acharne was put in charge of throwing a ball for the dogs to chase while the adults quickly all teed off to prevent the dogs from 'fetching' every shot.

It's played like ball golf, but with frisbee-like discs instead of balls and baskets instead of holes. It was first played in the early 1900's, shortly after the "invention" of the flying disc. Tournaments started in the 1960's using trees and trashcans as "holes". The first course was built at Oak Grove Park (now Hahamongna Park) in La Canada, California in 1975. I play there regularly.

Passed a woman in the last four-score weeks who had her big dog leash-less, "controlled" by whistles...

Look, I'm a walking human, walking to where I must go just now, and if your leash-less dog even so much as mildly threatens me, I will try to walk away, but if it continues to approach me hostily, I will continue to try to retreat from your angry leash-less dog, who knows why it's angrily approaching me, however, if this angry, leash-less dog gets too close, I will execute it swiftly...

Look, my dog doesn't really give two craps about people- he is a German Shepherd so he could care less unless someone was walking directly towards me. He doesn't approach people, if he so much as turns toward someone and takes a step I call him to me and leash him up. If he ran at someone I would fully expect them to kick them, shoot him, or at least yell at him and me- I would do the same thing if some strange dog was running at me.

Seriously, what kind of pussy is afraid of a dog. Two kinds of dogs out there: super-friendly lap babies who want to get petted, and scaredy/barky or aggressive dogs that I can scare the shiat out of, because I am a gigantic goddam primate who can throw rocks. The only dog I've ever been slightly worried about was an aggressive, half-a-killer Rottweiller who musta weighed 150 pounds, and I got my pistol out to deal with him if needed (wasn't needed).

Dogs should only be off-leash when they're in a dog park. I'll forgive people for walking dogs off-leash in an empty park, but the moment another person shows up the leash should go on.

Really? People are afraid of dogs? That's ridiculous. I can see being scared of people, but dogs? You don't have to be tough to not be scared of dogs, that's just standard being a people.

When I was a kid, there were no leash laws, because I lived in the sticks, and we used to chase off barky dogs by throwing rocks at them. You bow up on a dog, they haul ass.

Some of those disks are weighted, and could harm a dog that tries to catch it. So discs should be banned. Not ALL discs of course, just these new super destructive ones that the inventor of the frisbee could never have imagined.

never had a problem - until the first time. there are leash laws for good reasons. know it all's like you are why other peoples pets get bit or animal lovers (like my wife) cry many tears when your dog finally does chase whatever one day and it's dusk/dark, rainy and wham. then you're upset, my wife is upset, it costs us over $1500 to fix the undercarriage of the Scion not including the front air dam still needing replacement but worst of all your pet is dead. people like you that are so cock-sure they are just great dog trainers and pet owners bring sorrow to other people and pets, it's just a matter of time. the world is full of your type. you'll never change. mr know it all. you make me sick.

i lived in a rundown 6 family apartment building back in the late seventies,maybe early eighties. biker dude who also lived the had this big mean rott-mix he called his guard dog. the damn dog would sound off at everyone,even kids,barking and snarling. one day,i came home from work and the dog came around the building to register his disgust at my existence and i decided to bark back at him and i gave him a little juke move and he just did that splayed leg,oh! you wanna play move! we became best freinds and the biker guy was really pissed and blamed me for turning his dog into a "pussy" no shiat,the damn thing would wait for me to get home every day so we couls just play stick. he would still bark and snarl at most every one who showed up but when i walked up he would just run up and want to be petted and played with. loved that dog. was real sorry when they moved away.

"There are very few places in Sarasota where a dog can run free," says dog owner Rebecca Donelson.

It's not just Sarasota. Florida, in general, is very dog un-friendly. I live just south, in Brevard County, where we have ~60 miles of beach/coast line. Back around 2005ish I remember watching a series of county commission meetings where a group was trying to get a small section of beach (less than .25 miles) declared a 'Dog Beach'. It was shot down... unanimously. The vast majority of parks around here do NOT allow dogs at all and the very few that do require leashes. There is one dog park "near by" that we go to on occasion that is about 12 miles away out in the boonies. My dog (chow chow/yellow lab mix (short hair, purple tongue, curly tail)) deserves better than this.

Are you joking? I make you sick? You really think that no dog can be trained to respond off-leash? What about the countless working dogs that do just that every single day?

Even though my dog is reliable, I never walk him *near* any roads let alone busy roads at night.

Also my town has 2 large, COMPLETELY UNFENCED dog parks that are large enough that your dog would have to run completely out of your site to get to the road. Weird, how people can allow their dogs to walk with them there and there are no problems with 100s of dead dogs littering the road.

Hey,

Dogs have been human protectors for centuries.

Trained to hostilize those they don't know.

Seriously.

So the disc course has been there for 'years' (?) and the park has been leash-free for 'years plus'. Seems the new neighbors don't like the situation they moved in on and want everyone else to change for them. Am I reading that right?

Played disc golf for years, encountered unleashed dogs all the time...although now that I think about it, it was more while mountain biking than disc golfing. I hate unleashed dogs in leash zones. No I don't literally hate the dog, I just hate encountering unleashed dogs. The owners always say 'oh the dog won't bite'. I really don't like to leave that up to the dog.

Having grown up and kept my first dog in an area of the midwest with no dog parks at all, I do understand your longing for a place for dogs to run free.

All I can say is raise donations for another dog park. A multi-purpose park is not a good place for off-leash dogs.

Ambivalence: It's golf for people who can't afford real golf. Frisbees mostly.

Disc golf:

No tee times.
Informal.
No one throws Frisbees.
No emphasis on putting. A disc-golf putt is more like sinking a basketball. You get close enough, you know it's going in.
Ambivalence: you don't know what you are talking about.

Having grown up and kept my first dog in an area of the midwest with no dog parks at all, I do understand your longing for a place for dogs to run free.

All I can say is raise donations for another dog park. A multi-purpose park is not a good place for off-leash dogs.


Dog parks just concentrate irresponsible dog owners into mosh pits of horrible behavior and slack-jawed owners who are "so sorry" about how your dog now needs stitches

Abox: Played disc golf for years, encountered unleashed dogs all the time...although now that I think about it, it was more while mountain biking than disc golfing. I hate unleashed dogs in leash zones. No I don't literally hate the dog, I just hate encountering unleashed dogs. The owners always say 'oh the dog won't bite'. I really don't like to leave that up to the dog.


Funny enough, in my city (which apparently is EXTREMELY dog friendly with our 3 fenced and 3 unfenced off-leash dog parks) one of the unfenced off-leash dog parks IS ALSO a mountain biking course.

I have never understood it because it seems extremely dangerous for dogs to be running around and mountain bikers jetting around- like a horrible crash is imminent.

timujin: GungFu: wtf is a 'disc golf course'?

/drtfa

It's played like ball golf, but with frisbee-like discs instead of balls and baskets instead of holes. It was first played in the early 1900's, shortly after the "invention" of the flying disc. Tournaments started in the 1960's using trees and trashcans as "holes". The first course was built at Oak Grove Park (now Hahamongna Park) in La Canada, California in 1975. I play there regularly.

Yea I quit going to our dog parks because people were constantly bringing in their brand new, unvaccinated puppies, or throwing their terrified dogs in the lake (I once saw someone throw their ENGLISH BULLDOG into the lake- not a deep lake, but English Bulldogs cannot swim, and the owner immediately had to jump in and retrieve the dog), or allowing aggressive dogs to pin other dogs.

Most of all there would be about 40 dogs in a 1/2 acre park- in my opinion it is just highly unlikely that 40 dogs are going to calmly frolic together all the time- especially when new dogs are constantly coming in.

I've played disc golf in quite a few multi-use parks in New England. I don't think I've ever had a problem with a loose dog. Far more issues with loose children. There's where the leash laws could come in handy.

KrispyKritter: spidermilk: OK the funny part is that about 5 houses down we have a nice city park which includes a nice, big, partially wooded disc golf course. And of course I let my dog run around without a leash. My dog is trained to come when I call though and he listens to me plus has an extreme 'leave it' that keeps him from any stray frisbees.

He isn't really used to chasing frisbees anyway so he isn't really attracted to them- I have tried throwing frisbees for him because I can throw them further with less effort, but they are WAY too easy for him to destroy. Any normal frisbee he can immediately crack in half. The black kong frisbee was also easily destroyed...

Yea we go leashless all the time- it is why I love winter because all our great city parks are empty. I never do this around busy streets and we always leash up when we are going to pass someone. Never had a problem.

never had a problem - until the first time. there are leash laws for good reasons. know it all's like you are why other peoples pets get bit or animal lovers (like my wife) cry many tears when your dog finally does chase whatever one day and it's dusk/dark, rainy and wham. then you're upset, my wife is upset, it costs us over $1500 to fix the undercarriage of the Scion not including the front air dam still needing replacement but worst of all your pet is dead. people like you that are so cock-sure they are just great dog trainers and pet owners bring sorrow to other people and pets, it's just a matter of time. the world is full of your type. you'll never change. mr know it all. you make me sick.


This is exactly how it happens.

I should say I quit going to the fenced dog parks. The dogs I have encountered in the unfenced, very large dog parks have been angels. I once saw a girl walking FOUR Dobermans and one mixed breed and they were all within about 4 feet of her walking like sweet little angels. They didn't so much as look at me or my dog as we passed on the trail.

Also quit going to the fenced dog parks because some people thought that because there was a fence, it would be okay to let a toddler run around wherever they wanted. With a huge herd of large dogs running around. Even if you assume all the dogs ARE perfectly friendly a kid could get seriously hurt if a 60 lb dog ran into him/her.

Frisbees and dogs are a natural. Frisbees and static targets? That's just wrong. Swear by the 119/165 gram models and improvisation (direction of wind/skill level of fellow disc slingers/two and four legged `volunteers', etc.). Fark golf (balls or discs, nevermind).

So long as a `your dog poops it - you scoop it' rule is enforced, it's all copacetic.

The first time I encountered disc golf I had just moved to Austin (disc golf is huge there) and was walking in a park with my gf. A disc landed near us and we just thought it got away from the group throwing it. I picked it up and threw it back thinking I was helping. The group was not pleased.

Is that park on the road that goes to the main JPL entrance?


Yeah, right across from the high school.


Ambivalence: It's golf for people who can't afford real golf. Frisbees mostly.


Frisbees aren't used in disc golf. And while the cost to play is significantly less, it has nothing to do with why I prefer it over ball golf.

mbillips: Really? People are afraid of dogs? That's ridiculous. I can see being scared of people, but dogs? You don't have to be tough to not be scared of dogs, that's just standard being a people.

When I was a kid, there were no leash laws, because I lived in the sticks, and we used to chase off barky dogs by throwing rocks at them. You bow up on a dog, they haul ass.


Barky dogs never bother me. 'Bitey' dogs do. I still don't really feel comfortable around dogs because I grew up with a pretty aggressive one who bit quite a lot. And not the 'playful nip' kind of bite, the 'let's go to the hospital and get you 12 stitches' kind. She was erratic - one moment playful and friendly, and with no warning she would just attack. And that was with people she liked - with strangers, if not kept on a short leash she would attack without any hesitation. She wouldn't growl or bark, she would be very quiet and still, and then lunge to attack.

Later found out part of that was probably from the brain tumor that killed her, but still, when that's your primary experience with dogs, you tend to not trust strange dogs.

Disc Golf is fun. Do yourself a favor and try it. You can get a starter set at most sporting goods stores for under $30. Find a local course on DGcoursereview.com. A typical round takes less than 2 hours and most courses are free in public parks. Anyone can play this game, easy to learn but hard to master.

What *is* the problem? I walk my dog off-leash in the deserted wooded portion of a park, the disc golfers smoke weed, some bratty teens litter. The problem is???

I am not a scary person, I am a 5' tall female; if someone had a problem with me I imagine they would tell me. Does it really upset you so much to see someone throwing a ball for a dog in an empty field 50 yards away???

mbillips: Seriously, what kind of pussy is afraid of a dog. Two kinds of dogs out there: super-friendly lap babies who want to get petted, and scaredy/barky or aggressive dogs that I can scare the shiat out of, because I am a gigantic goddam primate who can throw rocks. The only dog I've ever been slightly worried about was an aggressive, half-a-killer Rottweiller who musta weighed 150 pounds, and I got my pistol out to deal with him if needed (wasn't needed).


Seriously, I'm not afraid of dogs.


But it is pretty likely that if your dog is off leash, I'll end up punting it about 30 yards.

That's not the dog's fault. Its mine. I don't want that to happen, and you don't want that to happen. So when I ask you to keep the dog on leash and not running around, jumping on me, or reacting to my anxiety at the dog being off leash, please respect it.

Because I don't want to hurt your dog. So please, instead of sneering that I'm a pussy, think about your animal, and keep it on the leash.

Otherwise, the animal gets hurt, and I feel really bad. Usually, the owner gets physical with me, and I don't feel bad about that part at all. Only once did that lead to the cops showing up, fortunately there were impartial witnesses, plus the pet owner turned out to have a warrant.

If you pull out a pistol to deal with it, I guess one of us is going to die. Maybe you think if you're the survivor that makes you right. And who knows, maybe you will be the survivor. Maybe.

I'm going to assume you don't read very carefully.

I'm not a tough guy. Far from it. Seriously, you aren't a tough guy for saying you might hurt someone's pet. Quite the opposite.

I don't want any animal to be hurt. Ever. Especially by me.

I grew up...yeah, you don't care, it doesn't matter, but the fact it, I had some c*nt think it was fun to sic her dog on me. And when I got old enough to fight the poor animal off, it was her excuse to have her husband beat the living shiat out of me.

Point being, I have huge anxiety issues around dogs. It isn't the animal's fault, I felt bad for that dog they trained to bite me when I was a kid (and the dog they replaced it with). But, put me around a dog off leash, I will get anxious The animal will pick up on that. Its a bad feedback loop. So I want to avoid that.

So I avoid dogs, and I don't go to a park where they are allowed off leash, and if I am in a park I try to let the owner know as soon as possible they need to keep the dog away from me.

And I am very sorry to say, if they don't, the dog, through no fault of its own, may get hurt. I am deeply sorry about that, every time it has happened, I will go to any lengths to avoid it.

If you think that's bullshiat, well, you're an idiot. Its reality. Please, I want your animal to be safe. If you (and there are some people in RL as stupid as Gunther) don't think its possible, you'll get your animal hurt.

All but one in RL have slunk off all upset. I was upset too. One didn't. He went to jail. Outstanding warrant.

Doesn't make me right. I'm just explaining how we get along. And what happens if we don't.

The rest of the world seems to get by without getting mauled on a daily basis by joy filled toy poodles, maybe that should give you a hint that the problem is in your own brain (and you are just a scared scared little boy) and not with the vicious Pugs of the world. If you have some compulsion to kill dogs because of your self admitted irrational fear, maybe the next time you feel the need to pull a weapon on an innocent dog, you should just use it to end your own problem permanently.

I'm just going to post this and then I'm putting you (and your alt) on ignore because life is too short for trolls or retards or whatever the hell you are. Just because you had experience that turned you a bitter, twisted fark and got your ass kicked (I'd like to shake that guys hand btw) doesn't mean that you should unleash your misery on the rest of the world. And just because a dog looks at you and *gasp* approaches you and *double gasp* might try to jump up on you doesn't mean you get to take a baseball bat to a 7lbs Pomeranian's head. And they very fact you would try to brag about that on the internet really shows your worth as a human being.

My advice: Keep doing what your are doing. Pretty soon you will pull out your 9mm and put a cap in the ass of some golden retriever that happened to smell your shoe, and that Viet Nam vet whose helper, and last friend in the world, you just murdered will be carrying too, and he'll decide his freedom is a fair price to pay to take a piece of shiat like you out of the world.

And I'd like to shake that guys hand as well.

Or....that Vietnam Vet could have just put his dog on a leash. My son is very allergic to dogs. As a results he is scared of them (he's just a little guy). He freaks out when we are out walking and some "friendly" dog starts running up to him and we hear the owner calling out from the distance "It's okay, he won't bite". Mind you, we only go to play in parks where dogs aren't allowed (none of the city parks in my town allow dogs, except a fenced off dog run in one of the parks). And we go hiking on a trail where leashes are required. I equate dog owners who take their dogs off leash in places where dogs aren't allowed or are supposed to be leashed with douchenozzle bike riders who run reds. You and your dog are supposed to follow the rules too.

The rest of the world seems to get by without getting mauled on a daily basis by joy filled toy poodles, maybe that should give you a hint that the problem is in your own brain (and you are just a scared scared little boy) and not with the vicious Pugs of the world. If you have some compulsion to kill dogs because of your self admitted irrational fear, maybe the next time you feel the need to pull a weapon on an innocent dog, you should just use it to end your own problem permanently.

I'm just going to post this and then I'm putting you (and your alt) on ignore because life is too short for trolls or retards or whatever the hell you are. Just because you had experience that turned you a bitter, twisted fark and got your ass kicked (I'd like to shake that guys hand btw) doesn't mean that you should unleash your misery on the rest of the world. And just because a dog looks at you and *gasp* approaches you and *double gasp* might try to jump up on you doesn't mean you get to take a baseball bat to a 7lbs Pomeranian's head. And they very fact you would try to brag about that on the internet really shows your worth as a human being.

My advice: Keep doing what your are doing. Pretty soon you will pull out your 9mm and put a cap in the ass of some golden retriever that happened to smell your shoe, and that Viet Nam vet whose helper, and last friend in the world, you just murdered will be carrying too, and he'll decide his freedom is a fair price to pay to take a piece of shiat like you out of the world.

And I'd like to shake that guys hand as well.

Or....that Vietnam Vet could have just put his dog on a leash. My son is very allergic to dogs. As a results he is scared of them (he's just a little guy). He freaks out when we are out walking and some "friendly" dog starts running up to him and we hear the owner calling out from the distance "It's okay, he won't bite". Mind you, we only go to play in parks where dogs aren't allowed (none of ...


I got the feeling BigLuca wasn't so much promoting the idea of letting your dog run loose off the street as he was the idea that shooting said dog might be a tad bit of an overreaction. I hope, for the sake of you kid, that you agree.

That's about the least cool thing I've ever read.

Let me get this straight: the fact that this person was tortured as a kid gives you the warm fuzzies. The nature of this abuse involved canines, which led to them retaliating against the torture device (which you think they had no right to do).

To this day they feel remorse about it... and somehow they deserve it all?

Dude, I've been lurking here for 10 years. I think I'm sick of reading you.

But I'm not going to block you. I'm going to keep you on, just so I have a reminder of how not to be a decent human being every time I read anything from you.

You're a self-admitted sociopath though, so I'll stop pissing in the wind. You go back to torturing kittens or whatever.

Really? You think this could not have really happened?

As recently as last Christmas (I have a buddy whose birthday is Christmas day, he throws a huge barbeque, I got in to a confrontation with some kid he grew up with that brought a dog and let it run off leash). I've had an incident with the cops showing up. I get that a lot of people on the intertubes spew bullshiat, but this? Really?

You must lead one heck of a sheltered life. Or you're an idiot.


Jesus farking christ the tough guy retards are out in force tonight.

I'm going to assume you don't read very carefully.

I'm not a tough guy. Far from it. Seriously, you aren't a tough guy for saying you might hurt someone's pet. Quite the opposite.

I don't want any animal to be hurt. Ever. Especially by me.

I grew up...yeah, you don't care, it doesn't matter, but the fact it, I had some c*nt think it was fun to sic her dog on me. And when I got old enough to fight the poor animal off, it was her excuse to have her husband beat the living shiat out of me.

Point being, I have huge anxiety issues around dogs. It isn't the animal's fault, I felt bad for that dog they trained to bite me when I was a kid (and the dog they replaced it with). But, put me around a dog off leash, I will get anxious The animal will pick up on that. Its a bad feedback loop. So I want to avoid that.

So I avoid dogs, and I don't go to a park where they are allowed off leash, and if I am in a park I try to let the owner know as soon as possible they need to keep the dog away from me.

And I am very sorry to say, if they don't, the dog, through no fault of its own, may get hurt. I am deeply sorry about that, every time it has happened, I will go to any l ...


You know, just because you have anxiety issues, doesn't mean you have to be an asshole about it. I've had panic attacks since I was 8 years old (no trigger, just a bad brain), and I've learned to just suck it up and feel panicky without bothering other people about it. Fortunately, the meds I take make them much less frequent, but I still get them. Cowardice is the act of taking counsel of your fears.

mbillips: Seriously, what kind of pussy is afraid of a dog. Two kinds of dogs out there: super-friendly lap babies who want to get petted, and scaredy/barky or aggressive dogs that I can scare the shiat out of, because I am a gigantic goddam primate who can throw rocks. The only dog I've ever been slightly worried about was an aggressive, half-a-killer Rottweiller who musta weighed 150 pounds, and I got my pistol out to deal with him if needed (wasn't needed).


You are fierce. Women want you and men want to be like you. Or you are just an overcompensating ITG,

As someone who likes to play disc golf, I'd actually just find it funny if some dog grabbed one of my discs and ran off with it.

"People say that their dogs will never hurt flies in any kind of way."

What a weird sentence.
 
2012-12-18 10:14:23 AM

Indubitably: spidermilk: OK the funny part is that about 5 houses down we have a nice city park which includes a nice, big, partially wooded disc golf course. And of course I let my dog run around without a leash. My dog is trained to come when I call though and he listens to me plus has an extreme 'leave it' that keeps him from any stray frisbees.

He isn't really used to chasing frisbees anyway so he isn't really attracted to them- I have tried throwing frisbees for him because I can throw them further with less effort, but they are WAY too easy for him to destroy. Any normal frisbee he can immediately crack in half. The black kong frisbee was also easily destroyed...

Yea we go leashless all the time- it is why I love winter because all our great city parks are empty. I never do this around busy streets and we always leash up when we are going to pass someone. Never had a problem.

Passed a woman in the last four-score weeks who had her big dog leash-less, "controlled" by whistles...

Look, I'm a walking human, walking to where I must go just now, and if your leash-less dog even so much as mildly threatens me, I will try to walk away, but if it continues to approach me hostily, I will continue to try to retreat from your angry leash-less dog, who knows why it's angrily approaching me, however, if this angry, leash-less dog gets too close, I will execute it swiftly...


You must be real dark for dog's to hate you so much... How about goto a different farking park dbag?
 
2012-12-18 10:28:19 AM
I am not a scary person, I am a 5' tall female; if someone had a problem with me I imagine they would tell me. Does it really upset you so much to see someone throwing a ball for a dog in an empty field 50 yards away???
Response 1 all wel & good until, as happened to me recetnly, your dog spots mine (on a leash) and comes charging after it. The owner was screaming at the dog to no avail. Fortunately I had enough time to scoop my small-ish dog up - ended up holding him above my head as the other dog was leaping at him while the owner came slowly jogging over "sorry soory he's never done that before" And i've never kicked a dog or a woman lady, but next time I will.

Really? People are afraid of dogs? That's ridiculous. I can see being scared of people, but dogs? You don't have to be tough to not be scared of dogs, that's just standard being a people.
Response 2 I'd be happy to share pictures of the scars on my face from an unprovoked dog attack. We were out in the middle of nowhere & the first doctor we could get to didn't want to even try to sticch me up - he just staple my face back together & we hauled ass to the nearest big city. 2 operations later I've got a scar 1/8 inch below my left eye & a round one on my throat about a 1/4" from my jugular- a result of him clamping onto my face. But he'd never done anything like that before!
End not Cool stories - and I still love all dogs. But they are still animals

So it seems like it should be summed up like this
1. People have a right to go about their business unmolested
2. Dogs, even the best trained and socialized dogs, are still animals who can behave unpredictably
3. Dogs, being much better designed animals than humans, can do a great deal of damage in a small amount of time before they can be stopped
4. Many people have not been raised around dogs and are anxious around dogs. Many people have been attacked by dogs and are anxious around dogs. Dogs can sense tension and respond to it
5. A well trained and friendly dog looks no different than an untrained and aggressive dog.

So, to sum up, unless you are in a dog park or off leash park, leash your dog. To not do so is not only not safe (for both the dog as well as people, as some people will respond to what they perceive as a threat with overwhelming force), but it also smacks of inconsiderate douchbaggery.

Yep, that's it. I keep my dogs on a leash 100% of the time. When they were about 6 months old a guy biking on the sidewalk ran into me and knocked my leash out of my hand. The female dog I have immediately ran and jumped in the lap of an older dude sitting in his car with the door open. The dog was about 8lbs at the time. The guy was understanding and just brought the leash back to me and helped me off the ground (I got hit pretty hard). In MisterRonbo world he would have killed or seriously hurt my dog and felt justified doing it. True, it's my fault and I should keep the leash in my hand at all time, but people drop leashes, ropes break, collars get loose. And then you have MisterRonbo proud in their mental illness and is proud that he kills dogs because they "approach him" repeatedly regardless of size, temperament or intent.

Well you are putting words in my mouth so I'm going to assume you are just going off because my post pissed you off. Which is fine ... my post was pretty angry. The summary of my point is that this guy claims to have hurt or killed dogs many times that were "threatening" him. I was a mail carrier for a few years and now I practically live in the park in the summer time and I've never had my life threatened by a dog once. The fact that this repeatedly happens to this guy means he is out there looking for an excuse to kill dogs because of his fear. That's it. And yes, I feel like those types of people are worthless and they should remove themselves from society.

As for the "self admitted sociopath" I have no idea what you are talking about. I guess you are just pissed about my post and decided to copy the words I used against the other guy, that's fine, vent away. My post was angry/mean/sarcastic but is the first time I have written a post like that in about a year.

Yeah, it was an extremely angry and violent post. This being the Internet I should know to expect it, but I tend to take stuff at face value. The dude is remorseful about hurting and killing dogs.. therefore I pity him and hope he gets help.

If taken at face value, your post actually does seem like it's coming from someone who can't feel pity.

No, MisterRonbo would ask you to please keep your dog away from me. This works 99% of the time.

And no, I'm not proud that I have a conditioned response to off-leash dogs. It is a problem. Its my problem. I shared that because I thought you might understand that while your dog off leash is, to you, not a threat, that can be a problem for some people.

But since you're a dick, you decide to twist my words and play internet tough guy.

Most -nearly all - dog owners I've encountered are reasonable people. A few are dicks. You ask them to get the dog under control, and instead they stand there and argue with you. Dicks. I can tell you're one of those.

Nope, didn't say that. Said I've had that urge many times, too many to count.

Didn't kill any. Did have to stomp one, large dog, aggressively barking and basically looking like it was about to rip me apart. I yelled for the owner to grab it, more than once, he just sneered. I stomped the dog, he jumped me, we were still going at it when the cops showed up to seperate us. Witnesses at a restaurant across the street told the cops what happened, they sent me on my way. He had a warrant, and went to jail.

But thanks for putting words in my mouth, dickwad.

I believe dogs should be kept on leashes and not jump up on strangers. So I treat all strangers like they have a phobia and respect their space. But even in a perfect world it's going to happen sometimes. I've dropped the leash a couple times, my dog slipped out of the collar once. I'd like to think that happening isn't a death sentence if done in a public place. Some people have a phobia of being touched. Does that mean that if they ride the subway and a stranger bumps into them they have the right to kill that stranger? No it's an over-reaction. Just like killing a dog that approaches you in public, but doesn't attack you, is an over-reaction. I'm just asking for people to use common sense.

That's the nice thing about Fark, posters are usually a little more mature. I'm usually pretty reserved myself, but about once a year something hits me just wrong and I turn into a 13 year old. It's usually at about 1am at the end of a long frustrating day. I took what the guys was saying more like "Yeah I kill dogs that get too close because that is my right. Sucks, but that's the way it is. Deal with it"

In any case, I did go off, mea culpa too-a

No, I attacked the dog because it was barking, snarling, baring its teeth, ears back, all of the "I'm about to bite you" signs. And after giving the owner multiple warnings/requests to get his dog under control.

I guess "aggressively barking" and "looking like it was about to attack me" are too hard for you to comprehend. Jeez.

noitsnot: wingedkat:

All I can say is raise donations for another dog park. A multi-purpose park is not a good place for off-leash dogs.

Dog parks just concentrate irresponsible dog owners into mosh pits of horrible behavior and slack-jawed owners who are "so sorry" about how your dog now needs stitches


Which is much better than those irresponsible dog owners letting their dogs run free to harass my high-strung rescued pup while she's trying to get over her leash anxiety.

P.S. I have dreamed of the Wolf Pack eating me alive, friend, for I fear no dog, for the Wolf has already eaten my soul, however, then the bear came...

P.P.S. When it saw the dog on the carcass, it garrumphed. The bear took the carcass from the dog and wolf. They waited, respectfully, for the bear to finish. When the bear was gorged, the dog and wolf gorged too...


i can't believe that no one has taken the opportunity to laugh hysterically at how lame your furry fantasy is. so i'd like to take this opportunity to do just that

also: you sound incredibly stupid and a bit of a blow hard

OT: keep your freaking dog on a leash - in the park, on the sidewalk, EVERYWHERE but your own house
stop assuming that anyone else wants anything to do with your mutt 

also: disc golf is kinda dumb but whatever, real golf is even worse

MisterRonbo: That's pretty badass.

No, I attacked the dog because it was barking, snarling, baring its teeth, ears back, all of the "I'm about to bite you" signs. And after giving the owner multiple warnings/requests to get his dog under control.

I guess "aggressively barking" and "looking like it was about to attack me" are too hard for you to comprehend. Jeez.


No, it was a poorly written post, and this is why he was confused. Also, attacking a dog that is acting threatening sounds silly. I wasn't there, so I cannot invalidate your experience, but it sounds like it was a very poor decision and certainly not worth bragging about online.

Ambivalence: It's golf for people who can't afford real golf. Frisbees mostly.


It's golf for people who can't stand condescending and sanctimonious dickbags. And dress codes.

I play tournament disc golf and haven't seen a frisbee in years. Frisbees have about as much in common with golf discs as minivans have with Formula 1 cars. Whammo does have a number of discs on the PDGA's Approved list, but I haven't seen anyone play golf with a Whammo disc since about 1986.

After encountering a lotta love in this thread I gotta say: one day. *)
 
P.S. Boo.
