I cannot believe that people put this dog into this situation..we as the owner/handler of the dogs are responsible to protect them ( from idiots). Unless dogs are trained to cope with this, like my therapy dogs, Katy and Tessa........They love this sort of attention. But when people are around them I always explain that they should not approach dogs in certain ways. My dogs are trained to accept it, because they work with mentally and physically challenged children, where anything can happen.

But I could imagine Annabelle could possibly do the same in that situation, except it would never happen whilst we had her with us.

I do looming and also staring, by strangers with R+ exercises with puppies, to hopefully prepare these for having to deal with future idiots.......
