I decided to take the girls to the woods/playing field at 2 PM

We had a great time in the woods, and went onto the playing fields. There were a group of people with dogs, so I put Clover on the lead, as I always do with dogs I don't know. Daisy was more interested in a ball she had found.

Anyhow this springer came running up to Clover, I told Clover to sit, and treated her, but the dog just kept coming up to Clover. So she started barking.

The woman in the group of people, who as been stood talking, turned round and said "oh we don't want your sorts on here" looking at Clover.

Yes Clover had been barking, cos the springer wasn't leaving her be. stuck up moo :(

Wow, snooty old mare:eek: me, I'd probably say something caustic as I have a real issue with stuck up people:D

Don't let her put you off walking there, you have as much right to be there as she has & maybe if there's a next time politely tell her to control her dog:)

I've learnt Clover will bark at dogs if they come over her threshold of feeling safe.

I try and keep a safe distance from other dogs if I can, but if they come running up to her, what can I do? :(

I'll bring Clovers uncle Arni over, they definitely wont want his sort there ;)

Is Clovers threshold getting smaller?
I was actually going to phone you to see if we could meet up again please. Her threshold really depends on how far the dog is a way, but also if it's a big dog or not. And also what kind of day she is having
