Default Dogs loose at the beach

Yesterday (Father's Day) at the beach, my family and I saw several families with dogs. (Gale conditions with high winds and surf on the Oregon coast, BTW)

The only dog that behaved aggressively toward us (e.g., circling us running, pounced on my leg, baring his teeth, etc.) - and compelled me to put myself between him and my wife and son - was brought there and turned loose by his dumbass owner, who (after having to leash him to get him to leave us alone) then unleashed him and tried to "train" him to follow commands (sit, stay...). Later, the owner was making the dog behave more aggressively by fighting with him for the stick he chased into the ocean.

Not to be a hater, and I believe that bad manners by dogs are mostly due to lousy guidance by their owners, but.... Care to guess the breed of dog?

Walking the dogs, with both kids (two years and two weeks) and the wife the other night, I finally scooped up a giant head bashing rock To keep in the stroller for when we go by a certain gate in the neighborhood (I refuse to carry a gun walking the dogs). It's a well built, heavily latched gate, but still.

I'll bet the dog behind that gate is the same breed as the aggressive dog you saw at the beach.

It was an "American Staffordshire Terrier" and it just got done allowing 17 baby ducklings to nap on its belly after going to the park and licking every kid in the face.

If it was one of those evil lhasa apsos you could have clubbed it like a baby harp seal.

I am guessing you are not a dog person. If your idea of teaching a dog to exhibit aggressive behavior towards people is throwing a stick in the ocean and having the dog retrieve it.
The dog will want to make the game worth the effort by not easily giving the stick up.

Sorry that you and family were scared, but I am pretty sure it was not warranted.

We have a chocolate lab. She fetches sticks and brings them back, and drops them at our feet. There is a difference between "the game" and teaching a dog to fight. I don't trust pit bull owners.

Your dog is a retriever. It's ingrained in them to drop the stick at your feet.

On the other hand my cocker spaniel loves to play tug of war with her chicken toy that she retrieves. It's part of the game with her and there's not an aggressive bone in her body. She gets bossed around our house by a 5 pound Maltese mix.

No comment on the other dog.

I missed the point in the OP about the dog playing tug.

Where I'm from, that's called "playing with your dog", not "aggressive behavior"

I had a Dalmatian that needed a crow bar to get a rope away from him...it was fun playing tug of war. Our beagle is the same way.

Our plott hound will retrieve and drop at our feet...he doesn't tug.

And you couldn't have said something more truthful " I don't trust their owners" because so many are idiots. I'm not a big fan of the breed mainly because of owners,but I do know a few that would lick you to death before they bit.
