It happens to me all time. I live on a 40 acre park, and half the people feel the need to unclip the leash once they enter the park, even though we have leash laws here. It just happened three days ago, but we've had the same encounter with that dog at least 10 times. His owner is a jerk, and refuses to train or leash his dog. This time, his dog came charging at us across a field from about 150 yards away. I saw him coming the entire time, and his owner did NOTHING. I had a verbal altercation with this guy sometime last fall over this. This time, it was light out. Usually it's in the dark, and you can't see or hear him coming.
Anyway, the other day, I put Bella in a down stay (unfortunately, she broke the stay), and stood between the dogs, and yelled "get out of here." after about 30 seconds, the dog left. I have pepper spray just in case, but this particular dog is not dangerous.
