    Took Razor out early evening, had a good run around our local park/field, as we were coming out, there were two dogs, both off lead, both small, one of them came upto Razor, both had a good sniff of one another, next thing, on the blink of an eye, the other small dog, came flying upto Razor, jumped up, and got hold of his throat :eek: the owner managed to grab it off, before it did any damage, just couldn't believe it, never got to say anything, was shocked more than anything!!

    The two best things, it didn't break any skin on Razor, and Razor just stood there whilst it happened, never went to attack the little dog or nothing, bless him :)

    Your poor sister! Hope she recovered.

    Well when this had happened, and this dogs owner had taken there dog away from Razor, the guy turned around and headed back the way he was coming, so I guess that dogs run was out the question.
    This is why I say 'all' dogs should be on a lead. If it had been the other way around and Razor had attacked this little dog, I imagine there would have been 'big' consequences to pay :mad:

    You're completely right. My two are never let off; only in secluded areas and when I see another dog coming I put them straight back on the lead.

    its a shame isnt it as all dogs love to run without restrictions, we cant always do this , i dont if i see other dogs within eye site and as soon as i do i get my dogs on their leads asap, not that my dogs would attack but fear of other dogs attacking mine. There have been alot of posts on here recently about peoples dogs being attacked , is this the norm or is the summer driving them mad or the irresponsible owners letting the wrong dogs off their leash???:eek:ut:

    When i am out with my dogs and they are off lead ,as soon as i see other dogs mine are put on leads,i just wish others would do the same,Jack my dog in avater got hurt by 2 labs and now hates dogs bounding up to him,he gets grumpy and if dogs start to paw him he snaps and growls,the rest of the time hes great with dogs,Other dog we own Rusty is a barker when excited and this can be off putting for other dogs and owners,so as soon as ive walked past other dogs my 2 come off lead and carry on running over the fields.

    We had 2 westies attack our GSD and he is now very wary of any other dog. He barks and growls, but behind you usually. Anything small and white he hates.
    Try and get yours out and about with other dogs asap, I wouldnt want him to feel the same as Sabre.
    I think all dogs should be kept on leads, flexi's if need be. If there is a big empty field I might let him off, but any roads(even back roads) and places where people actually walk their dogs should be leads only. If a dog ran up to Sabre(who is on lead) I dunno what he would do about it, proberly protect me, because of what has happened in the past, then who is to blame when the possible little dog gets hurt, bet most people would say it was the aggressive GSD.

    Thank you Brackensmom. I'm so glad the little dog didn't hurt him, that's the last thing I want to remember of our last few walks!

    I will certainly be weary when taking him out now, well whilst we have him anyway :(
    Trying to get the most from him, and have plenty of cuddles and licks, :)

    The woman that was walking the yorkie wasnt the dogs owner!!! And she was screaming at my sister to get Persia off her yorkie as it isnt HER dog and didnt want anything to happen to it etc etc.

    My sister just turned round to her and said "so why the hell is it off the lead then!!!!

    The yorkie was the one that bit my sister and her jeans were ruined, they were ripped in two!!! And the dog bit all her left hand as well and the woman didnt even apologise just kept shouting at my sister that "it wasnt her dog!!!!

    What a shame that so many feel the need to keep their dogs on the lead. I very seldom walk my dogs in dog walking areas nowadays but I did walk my old dog in the park in Aberdeen last year and I didnt see a single dog on the lead thank goodness. And they were all very well behaved. My dog, who had hardly ever been walked near other dogs, was very polite and sniffed any dog that came near her then carried on her way. It was great though, we chatted to lots of people but if everyone had been grabbing their dogs and putting them on the lead there would have been a lot of tense dogs and tense and less friendly owners. A couple of years ago we had to spend a week in Stratford with 2 dogs and took them to a local dog walking place every day and again most dogs were off the lead, everyone was friendly, dogs and owners alike, and I found it a nice relaxing experience.

    It's not all so rosy and perfect for most of us though.

    Where I live, there are a lot of complete idiots who just let their dogs go bounding over to others, completely carelessly and to be honest, I find that attitude very ignorant and very stupid. Yes, most dogs might be fine - but how would you feel if your poodle went trotting over to another dog who didn't want the attention, and it bit your dog? I keep my dogs on a lead for a reason, they do not appreciate other dogs bounding over to them unwantedly. Both are blind in one eye, and one is very nervous and very timid and i'm pretty sure she doesn't want boistrous dogs running at her... I certainly don't!

    If only my local park was such a perfect doggy place.

    I'm afraid my views on this subject are not popular at all.

    ALL DOGS SHOULD BE UNDER CONTROL IN PUBLIC PLACES.

    How many more threads like this will be repeated until something is done. I honestly believe that the majority of dog owners are responsible people, but sadly the minority have galvanised a lot of councils to introduce a law which stipulates that dogs should be leashed in public areas

    Amenity: Keeping dogs under control | Log in to Horticulture Week

    As the owner of a GSD I am well aware that this breed can cause fear amongst some people, and Luika is always leashed when amongst children, people and other dogs. As much for his own safety as other people.

    Our second GSD was attacked by a Yorkshire Terrier while on a lead, and his response was to toss the Yorkie up in the air. The owner launched a verbal attack stating that she would report us for having a dangerous dog!

    This is the mentality of some dog owners :cursing:

    I agree with you here. One of our dogs was a fighting ring rescue and so was always kept under control on a lead. You would not believe how many times other people's dogs came running up jumping all over him. The owners would be somewhere off in the distance shouting "don't worry, he's friendly". That's great for their dog but ours wasn't and we knew exactly who would get the blame if Rocky ever bit one of their dogs.
