Im sorry but i really need a rant after last nights dog training class!!! why do people get dogs when they do not know one thing at all about them!!! I am competiting in obedience with Pops, however our other dog was a rescue and hadnt been socialised properly, so im taking him to beginners class to get to know other dogs. He can sometimes want to play with dogs, other times it can turn to agression as he doesnt know how to interact with them, so i watch his body language carefully. But this woman arrived last night with a springer, hadnt one clue about him, held his lead by the handle only so he had about 6 foot to swing on, and every time we walked past each other, her dog flung out at mine to attack him. several times it happened. Luckily i was holding my dog close and was able to keep him away from the dog. I kept wanting to say to her to watch what she was doing, cos she wasnt exactly helpin my dogs progress!!! but unfortunately i didnt have the guts and resorted to dirty looks! she was telling him off, but it was in a soft girly voice and used the words "now you are not to do that, that is not nice" so eventually, her dog ended up biting a little schnuzer pup on the bum and broke the skin. that aint gona help that pup either. plus im cross that the woman that runs the course didnt even approach her and tell her how to control him. aaahhhhhhhh sorry needed the rant!!
