I don't really take my dogs out in public much except for walks and to the dog park occasionally, but it doesn't really bother me when dogs are running around so long as they are reasonably behaved. A lot of it depends on environment. I've been to Western towns where virtually everyone has a dog and they are all off leash. You can go to a restaurant or bar and there are 5,10,15,20+ dogs sitting on the front porch waiting for their masters. I guess if dogs are raised in that environment, they catch on and fall in place with the other dogs. On the other hand, suburban dogs kinda of go crazy with all of the stimuli of being off leash.

I have dogs, three of them. I have had dogs all of my life. I will not tolerate an unruly dog. Even when at my own home and friends come over, I am very strict on my dogs to not bother people. Dogs should be quiet and obedient. They do not need to be under foot. When I have guests I do not like for them to have to walk around my dogs or be bothered by my dogs (as nice as they are) begging to be petted.

I will not allow another dog in my yard, regardless of who's it is. This is not their home and if it upsets my dogs , then they do not need to be here. My in-laws have brought their dog over before, but maybe only once or twice and it stayed outside the fence or in their vehicle....

The thing about some pet owners is that they seek praise for having a well trained and/or pretty dog. They feel like the dog some how makes them a better person or a better pet owner, especially if they like to show him off. Sort of like a fast car or pretty girlfriend....lol. Even to the point to where they will bring their dog inside someone's home where another dog lives and the result is a fight.lol.

Isn't it sad how disrespectful some people are for other people's homes?

As far as public places go, well, if it's legal, then I can just not go there if I don't like the dogs being there. Most times though I will walk up and ask if I can pet the dog, and normally do so. Afterall, I am a dog lover....it's the owners that I sometimes have a problem with..lol.

Oh and one more quick thought.....most times the dogs don't want to be in the store or in the restaurant, so don't blame them. Their owner is just too irresponsible and too uncaring to realize that the dog does not want to be there...

There are dog owners and dog lovers.....it's pretty easy to distinguish between the two .

I think most people with manners would do the same. For the folks without manners, well they will always do what they want no matter what and all you can do is hope they will listen when you tell them whats what.


Misbehaving children do not maul or kill people. Misbehaving dogs can. HUGE difference. Few people have a powerful fear of children; many have a powerful fear of large dogs.

Someone with "manners" won't ask you to remove your dog. And they shouldn't have to. You shouldn't have brought your dog into a situation where there are many people who don't know nor love your dog. He's your pet, not the public's pet. Don't assume he is going to be loved and appreciated by everyone. At least half the people in this country don't own a dog for a reason.

BSK, I understand. Few dogs intimidate me when I encounter them, but I've never been attacked. If I remember correctly, both you and your wife were attacked (or had a horrific experience) at some point in your lives. Too many dog owners don't realize some people are terrified of dogs.


Correct. My elderly mother was also attacked by a group of five German Shepard security dogs. She still has regular nightmares about it years later. She panics in close proximity to a large dog.

I couldn't agree more. Comparing dogs to children is a true example of apples to oranges.

I can't understand folks who expect everyone to "love" their animal(s). I am the owner of two grown labs, and I understand that everyone does not share the same bond.

I have a dog and when she's gone I know I will miss her as if it was a close personal friend which she is but she's still a dog.

People are not excepted to feel the same way as "you" do toward "your" pet.

Rules are rules and laws are laws. Why should we have to go to a public event and step in someone's dog's mess just because they thought it was cute to bring them???

At sporting events why is the game called time out because a dog is running on the field? Because it's not fair to the players and is against the rules of the game. Suppose that time YOUR kid might have hit the winning run or made the tackle that would have stopped the other team cold??

If there is a lase law in the area you are in and you see dogs running free just call the cops and complain. The dog catcher will come and when they see it for themselves they will take the dogs and the owners will have to pay the fine.

Misbehaving children do kill people. To me it is really similar circustances. The kids who grow up with minimal parental presense, that grow up to be a drain on society, in and out of legal system, sell drugs, murder others, etc.....Or the spoiled little rich kids that are 25 years old and still suckling on the parental tit. They get drunk, drink and drive, kill somebody, mommy or daddy gets a lawyer and they basically get away with murder.......Same concept with people owning pets. Pets AND children are a product of the environment they are raised in. Without the proper discipline, neither will ever amount to much more than a waste of space.
If someone comes into my house that does'nt like dogs, then the dogs go outside or in the bedroom. I respect their feelings, because like BSK, more than likely, there is a reason they do not like them. Like I tell people, I love my own dogs very much, but I don't really give a dam about yours. lol.

Tell me how many 5 yr old children have killed someone compared to 5 yr old pit, or shepherd or rottie...
