This incident happened not in a dog park but an actual park - or at least that's how I read it - which means the owner should absolutely not be letting that dog run around off leash.
I was down at the ravine this morning and had mine off leash chasing the ball - and a man had 2 dogs on leash - and of course mine is running over to say hi - and he warned me his shepherd is not friendly - which was the responsible thing to do - and I had to lure mine away and it was a good reminder to me that I still don't have complete recall. If something had happened it would be my fault. We should have control of our dog, even the nice ones.
Owners need to walk their dogs so I get it, but responsible ones keep their aggressive ones on leash or even muzzled.
Has anybody tried to reason with the owner about being responsible? As its usually the dog that pays the price in these cases.
