I adopted my dog, and it didn't require too much adapting. She knows enough to not do her business in the abode.

I just had an epiphany! This might just be why chihuahuas and min-pins are so horrible!

Seriously, I have giant breed dogs currently.. I HAVE to make sure they're trained. Period. Fortunately, they're also extremely chill.

My brother always had big well trained and chill dogs, sadly they still had a few bites on neighbor loose pets that came in his yard.

I'm not mad about the dog being off leash in this instance because I still laugh thinking about this.
Happened to my buddy mid tourney. He was livid. The rest of us were laughing, but sympathetic.

That Jenna's a vicious killer... last time I played SoWeMi, I needed 54 stitches to close the wounds.




...or maybe that was from the rough cuz I couldn't stay in the fairway.



FWIW- I never have issues with dogs. I love 'em. It's irresponsible owners that piss me off.

From the last time we had this discussion --

All the angst about dogs is easy to spew here but as long as you keep your dog leashed and cleaned up after no one really notices/objects in the real world. I take my dog out all the time -- doesn't make much sense as a dog owner to spend hours walking in the woods without my dog -- and it's uneventful when it comes to trouble. Yes, it took 30ish rounds of training to get him to stay wherever the bag was not go darting off after a rodent for 20yds or so dragging my bag, but these were rounds on our own off-peak with little interaction if any with other golfers. Now that he's older and never leaves the bag it's like having a real quiet spectator.

Yes -- there are off leash dogs that can be a hassle and I understand more than most how frustrating it is to deal with inconsiderate owners. You think off leash dogs annoy you -- try having a leashed dog with you, it's like the dogs are supposed to have a play date now and even with all the work I've done with my dog, an off-leash dog(s) are even more than he can resist so I'm left supervising all the dogs until the owners show and remove their wandering dogs . . . . . errr.

Golfers I know that are averse to dogs along have softened their view when it comes to my dog. They'll realize that the dog is just along for the ride and say things like -- "After the first basket, didn't even notice him", or "dogs usually bother me but he's OK".

If dogs aren't welcome someplace I just go somewhere else -- there's so many courses that don't have any dog restrictions (legal or culturally) I just play where we're welcome. I practice a lot at Sedgleywoods (busy urban course) with my dog but we keep to ourselves so as not to bother anyone. I don't bring him to tags or doubles if I'm playing, so no one has to ask not to have him along. (While my dog's well-behaved, I'm aggressive/over-bearing and appreciate most golfers wouldn't have the nerve to say . . . "um, I have a problem with the dog . . ." It's always fascinating when someone turns on their speakers and I ask that they turn them off. The response is always "really?", and I respond -- "please". You'd think I just kicked their dog!! )
