I remember a while back seeing a post about harnesses with notices on them saying "please give me space" or something to that affect, to detract strangers from just running up and patting your dog?
I have searched, but can't seem to find anything anywhere.
My dog has anxiety and goes a bit crazy when he sees other dogs / people with beards / bikes when we go for a walk.. This is something that we're working on, but unfortunately I've recently come into contact with a local resident who likes to let her dog walk off-lead. The dog is well natured, but is not restrained, and jumps all over both me and my dogs. The owner doesn't seem to understand when I tell her to please leave.. she's actually followed me with her dog?!
I'm hoping that having something to this effect would help get the message across???
