I'm just saying, my first option would defiantly not be to let my dog go to finish/have a fight. I would first try everything I could before letting my dog go, everything. So far, those situations were I've needed to protect my dogs, i've been lucky and not needed to let the leash go. My first reaction could never be to straight away, let go of the leash because you don't know how bad it could end up if you did that.
o, I wasn't saying the fight could have been prevented, I just know I would have reacted differently.
In saying that, I try not to walk my dogs together so it's easier to handle a fight if one breaks out. My Lab x is friendly so I have less to worry about with him, unless I meet a truly aggressive dog but I already know what I'd do in that situation. Serenity, there is no way in hell I would let her go.. No, Just no. I would do whatever it took to protect her because if I was to let her go, I don't just need to worry about that dog. Plus, she's small so I am not going to let her fight against a big, aggressive dog. Plus, she's easy to pick up.
I just hope I never come across a bad situation.
