    i would not have him off leash again, because of 2 reasons 1. if a similar incident arises there could be horrible implications 2. the incident may have made him anxious and more likely to bite in defense again.

    Exactly. Well put.

    Alan, the problem you are facing is not whether you feel your dog is dangerous or not, but the decision of the authorities, who will most likely conclude that he is. Sad, but true, I'm sorry.

    Unfortunately, I don't think it's all that possible. Although we know our animals (dogs) 100 % we are not them, we can't comprehend what they feel at certain moments. Maybe this kick towards the dog looked from his perspective really really scary and nasty, so he, otherwise lovely natured and peaceful dog reacted the way he did. The same is dogs with other dogs in fenced dogy parks. They all may play and have fun, and sometimes they get involved in fights. It's dog world, their world, which most of people do not understand unfortunately. It's not fair they get labeled as agro. Very few dogs actually deserve to be labeled as aggressive because it's such a complex term - aggression.
    What I wanted to say - in an off leash area you are open to possibilities that your best friend might react the way dogs react if they're somehow provoked/frightened or else.

    dog people do not understand how non dog people can be so scared of our dogs..
    Oh, yes I do. What I don't understand is how someone can behave the way this jogger did when everything screams about how and what NOT to do when around dogs (or animals for that matter). Thy teach your at schools, it's on TV in the papers... everywhere. But I guess this woman was just as surprised and stunned as the dog was, and she also reacted the way she did.

    OK,well then if our dogs cannot be trusted of lead as "we are not them, we can't comprehend what they feel at certain moments." then on that theory dogs should never ever be allowed of leash. We cannot be sure they wont bite someone out of an 'unknown thought/reaction afterall .

    You dont understand peoples fear of dogs at all Fedra.
    You dont know how this lady reacted the wat she did ? She was obviously terrified of dogs . They teach you at schools etc etc about other life fears as well ( not that I recall a lesson on how to behave around a dog) but this does not lessen any phobia/fear a person may have. I am deathyly afraid of spiders for example , have been given lots of advice ,but it means nothing when I am actualy faced with one .

    The path you are running along here with this train of thought Fedra is equal to saying we can forgive all dog bites as we dont think 'doggy thoughts' .You are effectively saying its ok for a dog to bite someone who is just going about their usual past times .Because they arn't robots afterall.

    Sorry,not good enough.
    And seriously,if that is the way you truley think about the situation,then how many people do you place in danger with your own dogs ?

    This lady had every right to be jogging along her beach. Every right to do so without fear of getting 5 stitches from an off leash dog with an owner not in control.


    And Alan,as already said ( I tried to say it pages ago) it will not matter how many here say he is not aggressive.He has bitten a person on a public beach requiring 5 stitches , the authorities will deem him a Dangerous Dog.
    You can appeal it of course,you can spend a large amount of money dragging it through the courts but at the end of the day,you were in the wrong,your dog did bite someone.Sorry

    All I wanted to say - it was an accident and accidents do happen occasionally. I do understand fears, as I myself have the same one you have

    It was an off leash area and it just happened because of the circumstances.
