Ive suffered at a stray malamute dog attacking me and my two pooches. The warden did nothing. A week later, the dog attacked a child. PTS.
That child attack could of been prevented.
As a result of that attack, i now have a breed specific dog/dog aggression from Bernie, all artic breeds are fare game.
I got knocked down to the ground, and shook for a fair while and then went home. I was suprised at how much this event had shaken me. I had lost my nerve with my 2 dogs. Did not feel confident to walk them etc etc.
I persevered and MADE myself keep going with my 2, and got over it. But i can imagine other owners might not.
