    Default Fright on My Walk

    Because Madeline is dog aggressive I plan my walks carefully to try to avoid houses with dogs (she's hard to control if she hears barking) and I like to make sure I can see a long way ahead so I can take evasive action if I see anyone coming.

    I took her out tonight and it was going ok, she was a bit hyper because of the weather, untill I round a corner and there's a guy with a small dog off lead running towards us.
    I can hear him yelling at the dog to come, I've turned tail and tried to walk carmly but quickly away thinking 'dont look just walk'
    Luckely his dog gave up the chase.
    But I was left shaky, heart pounding and trying to rangle Maddy back undercontrol.

    After many many $$$ on training she's better than she was a year ago but still my partner wonders why I hate taking her out.

    Sorry for the long rant, I need a drink now.

    I so wish other people could control their dogs. It would make life so much easier.

    I hope your drink worked and calmed your nerves a little!

    Feeling much better tonight

    My area is shocking for off lead dogs, I live next to a really big park thats not actually an off lead park but no body takes any notice.

    I'd love to let my two off but I know they'd never come back

    Some people only think of themselves. Glad you've managed to relax a bit, would have been quite a fright!

    I can well imagine how you felt. Hope the drink did the job. Some people are so irresponsible.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    Had something similar happen today- a big staffy cross bitch with a tiny puppy was wandering around the street where I walk Ziggy. She looked like a stray, it was hard to tell. It's a bit scary cause Ziggy is only a pup and doesn't know what to do, she was quite scared, and you never know what the other dog will do.
