MycroftHolmes: 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.


that is entirely too succint & logical. Are you on the right website?

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.

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,

BigLuca: MisterRonbo

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.

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 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.

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.

Dogs sense fear. More aggressive breeds have a stronger adverse reaction to fearful people.

Some (most) breeds have no business off of a leash... and also, some people need psychological help.

Hey,

Dogs have been human protectors for centuries.

Trained to hostilize those they don't know.

To claim otherwise is otherwise ineptitude or irresponsibility, doggies.

Seriously.

Dumbify someone else, for I out-dog you, apparently...

P.S. Contain and control your dog, or I will...

P.P.S. Hello puppy, who's a good dog? You are, yes, you are...who's a good boy? rubbing the neck Yes, that's a good boy...

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.

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.
