Default If you have to tell your dog

to stand down multiple times in a stern voice while reining in on their leash when someone approaches in a public place, there is a problem.
Heart skipped a beat when they growled as I passed.

The person probably has multiple cats. Some dogs just don't like some people.

Animals have a better sense of people, there was obviously something wrong there. I'd take my pets word for it.

A guy(me) walking past a woman with 3 dogs on a leash at a hotel. What more do you suspect?
Oh, and please let me visit with your precog animals as I'd like to head anything I can off at the pass.

Dog needs to attend the "good canine citizenship" class.

you'd scream "ban him", trust me.

Seriously, I'm walking down the sidewalk at the hampton, a lady is standing at her door with 3 dogs on a leash. As I approach, she suddenly starts saying "stand down, stand down, stand down" and growing louder with each command. As I walk by, 2 of the 3 growl at me. WTF? A dog with that demeanor should not be around people in public places.
Guess what the breed was that growled at me? The one that didn't looked similar to a mini boxer?

I can't reasonably say that. She was trying to call them down. Although, I never seen a change in their demeanor as I approached until after her commands and my passing.

perhaps you were passing a little too close to the pack? the command stand down is a little unusual for dogs but hey if it works for her, then again maybe she wasn't talking to the dogs.

So I'm walking my Choc Lab ( got from a member here) 7 am this morning on a public 2 mile nature trail. Trail's empty, dog is reasonably well trained, but socialized with a typical Labrador disposition.....and off-leash.

We go around a corner there is a woman with a Border Collie, who is going nuts: barking, growling, wrapping around her legs so she almost falls in the mud. My dog, who was about 10 feet ahead of me stops dead, cocks her ears and tilts her head to the side in a "WTF is up with you" look.

I walk calmly up to my pooch and snap on the leash. Whereupon she starts yelling at me for not having my dog on a leash. I tried explaining that "leash" had nothing to do with it. Her dog, not mine, was the problem and that both her and her dog needed to work on their social skills.

That only seemed to rile her - and her stupid Collie - up even more. Finally I said: "You're right, all dogs need a leash. So who's walking you?" And off we went.

Biotch.
