I feel like dog owners are a lot like bicyclists. Most are courteous, well-behaved human beings who do the right thing. A few are either thoughtless, spacey, or just *******s, and they which give the rest a bad name. Speaking as both a biker and former dog owner, I sometimes complain about both, but I realize it's a pretty small minority who are actually the bad actors.

True. And probably true about a lot of things. Probably a lot more things than we'd want to introduce in this thread.

You can test the analogy if you've played a course on shared park property, with bike trails running through it.

I'm not sure if your obtuseness is intentional or real, so I'll explain to you. Ex lax is really poison to a dog, it doesn't just make them poop.

I can't believe this is even a conversation, lol.

"Never argue with a moron, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience"
You learn something new every day. Ex lax equals dog poison. They should have a public service commercial before the next dog owner thinks that his dog is constipated and then accidentally wacks it. I wonder if milk of magnesia is more or less poisonous than Ex lax.

I don't know. I've never had a bike owner say "It's never acted like that before!" after the bike decided it hated me and got away from the bicyclist.

I love dogs; they can be great companions and workers. Having said that, dogs are pack animals and must be shown that they are not the alpha. If the hiarchy is not established, then the dog will be unmanageable.


...

Just saying, it seems that too many of the dogs one sees own the course, the hiarchy is inverted.
