I just came back from walking Humble and I see a young woman with her dog. All of a sudden she's getting dragged through the snow by her dog. At this time I'm cooler than a cucumber because Humble met the same dog earlier in the week and everything was good (still cautious). But this time her dog wanted to dominate Humble. Humble wasn't having it. Humble growled at him, so I started to walk away, but the woman was using a FUCKING flexi leash (I HATE THEM WITH A PASSION!!!) and her dog gets loose (collar and everything). I decided to keep Humble's head up and away from the other dog so he wouldn't bit the other dog. The dog kept coming at Humble and the woman couldn't get a hold of her dog. So I'm dancing with Humble trying to keep from anyone from getting hurt. FINALLY!!! She gets a hold of her dog and puts the collar back on him. Humble was sitting next to me while the other dog was barking off the handle. I told the woman to get new gear for her dog, maybe a pitch collar, as well as getting his ass trained!!! She was afraid of hurting her dog. I said to her "if HE pulls HE will be hurting himself not you". She kept apologizing over and over again.Thank god no one was hurt, but I'm fucking pissed!! GEEZZ!!! Sorry for the rant y'all

Stupid ass people. I will never understand why somebody will take a dog out they know they can't control even physically where it can cause others' harm.

Good for you though, keeping yourself collected. I'd be angry too.

That sounds like a less than fun end to a walk :/ We ended up getting the gentle leader collars and those things are sooo great. My dog used to pull constantly if they saw anything intersting(which is basically everything for my dogs) and now they are so good about walking. It's like a complete 180. I don't feel bad about using it either cuz they pulled about twice the first time they are it and learned fast and didnt get hurt.

Thanks guys.
I use a pinch collar because break sticks are illegal in NY and it works, but people gotta think. You are not hurting them by using a pinch collar you're only hurting them by not being responsible and uneducated. This never happened to me before, but I'm glad I found this forum to help me prepare for something like this.

Well hopefully you made a positive impression on her and she will take your suggestions for action. One can only hope

I hope so, joe!! She only had him for two months and he's 11 months now. If it would've been a bully breed with that type of social issue; it would've been put down quick!
 
UGH! glad no one was hurt and nothing bad happend!
I have had off lead dogs come charging us SOO many times! Thankfully my 2 have really good social skills (i thank God for there social skills!)

just the other day we walked literaly 6 blocks to the vets office to pick up licenses, we encounterd 2 off lead dogs- one was very very sweet,she tried to run up and greet us, hit a patch of ice and body slammed Cesar knocking him on his butt, he thought it was the best thing ever to happen as did she!

the second dog however was quite aggressive and attempted to bite Cesar and Chimera 5 or 6 times-NO owner in sight! i shamlessly shoved the dog with my boot as hard as i could to get its ass moving home, i was waiting for an owner to come running from the house yelling at me for shoving their dog-no such luck as i was ready as hell to bitch at somone about it!
