Hi, Can anyone tell me the protocol for on lead/off lead meeting? The reason I ask is because I have the same scenario over and over again and it is beginning to get on my nerves! I don't let my dog off lead unless I am in very specific, very safe areas, as she has confidence/fear issues, so often I am meeting dogs who are off lead while she is on lead. Now, I know that they can be defensive on lead, etc, but we are perfectly capable of meeting other dogs and being friendly. Twice today, two different loose dogs with no recall whatsoever bounded up to us. Both dogs ran full on up to us and sniffed her, and the first one she ignored, but the second one she had a go back at. It was much bigger than her. What was really annoying is that I said, "Wow; that is a big dog" and he said "she's quite friendly!" Well, my point is, that my dog is not overly friendly, as he found out, but it is just really annoying that these people think it is okay to let their dogs just run about all over the place so meeting each other is not controlled, it is just a free for all. I also had someone say "Is your dog friendly or do I need to put my dog on his lead?" She must have known it would bound up to us (it did), but she didn't care. They don't seem to take into account that MY dog might not like it.
