There's an old guy lives near us. Two years ago, he had a dog PTS because it was very aggressive. He then got the dog's sibling, a bitch who until recently had to wear a muzzle (I was told this was a dog law thing, not forever, the muzzle was always hanging down, never on the dog properly). He has another dog, a male. He is a trauma, the guy and forever creeps up and wants to talk to us. The OH is much more patient than me and has talked to him about Zak and how aggressive he is and how he can't yet play with other dogs but after more training, we hope he can. So I'm on a massive field today, Zak is retrieving his toy and up creeps this guy and his two dogs. I hold Zak and the guy keeps approaching, saying 'Oh, let him play, mine won't fight him'. I shout back saying Zak will, please recall your dogs. He keeps coming. He stands two feet away, with me clearly struggling to hold Zak as his dogs sniff him. He tries to hold a conversation and m asking him politely to take his dogs away. This goes on til he's nearly in my face and I lost it, shouting that he always does this, he knows fine well my dog will attack his, take your dogs away, thanks for ruining my walk, he does NOT want to play with yours! I concluded with 'Thanks so much, I'll take him elsewhere, shall I?' I'm so peed off. It was pouring with rain, it's a huge field, Zak is fine as long as other dogs stay away and I was ready to go if needed. This guy knows fine well that Zak has issues. I have zero sympathy for lonely old man thing either, as he has multitudes of teenage lads in and out of his house (no idea why) and regularly gets into confrontations with other dog owners. Zak was very stressed, trying to get to the dogs, the bloke's smaller dog was barking at Zak and I honestly thought there was going to be a massive fight. Why are other people such idiots? I sincerely hope he's not still there when I take out the B boys. They're fine, but I'm worried he will want to have a massive conversation. I wish I lived in the middle of nowhere.
