I've seen a number of threads springing up on here recently about how annoying people find it when people without dogs say or pass comment and that they should show dogs respect, but how many people on here do it the other way round? I'm constantly reprimanding my dogs for jumping up at people, and they are learning not to do it. I also if I see people jogging or on bikes call them to me and make them sit until they are past, and if there's a group with children I also call my dogs back as well and wait. For me, I find it a 2 way thing. Why should I expect everyone we meet out walking to like or accept my dog pawing at them? I don't like it when someone's kid comes and pets my dog without asking, I always tell them that mine are fine but they should be careful and always ask in future. So why should I expect anything different when the tables are turned? Just wondered as I do meet some people with dogs that seem to think they have right over everyone/everything...and it gets on my wick!
