They are even worse now than before with any dog no matter how big or small. It's thier gun fight now.... i tried my best.

    The whole country is surronded by beaches yet we can only use a tiny % of them for some of lead fun. I reckon non doggy peeps should read the signs and go elsewhere, especially if there is another beach very close by.
    YES!!! Thank you

    In my scenario there was a non dog beach to either side, take ur pick non doggy family I mean really, what child doesn't like a little adorable puppy playing with them? Sheesh

    And I blame their parents for not teaching them how to react to dogs and they're not doing them any favours.
    Yeh That's exactly right, and what if the kids were walking home from school alone and met a not so friendly or bigger dog? would they run away screaming then? It's scarey really

    My brother tried very hard to persuade his kids not to run around screaming near dogs they didn't know. But they'd do it anyway. Not sure why. They would scream in fear at rats too (chook pen). I think they'd been impressed by one too many scary stories, and if you asked them to be careful around something because it was dangerous - they'd go instantly in to completely freaked out mode.

    And my brother has a dog. Who ignores all the silliness and walks away if it gets too close. Unless there is a big stick to run around with - and then it's like a scythe harvesting wheat.
