I've been knocked on my ass by "friendly" dogs that "just wanted to play." For whatever reason, dogs don't seem to like me very much, even the supposedly "friendly" ones. And even if it doesn't bite me, I still don't want it rearing up and wiping its muddy forelegs all over me, or rubbing its drool-covered muzzle on my clothes. Leash your &$%@ dog.

edit: And pick up its poop.

Dogs are animals with brains....thus free will. You tell us your dog is under control, but then tell us that he is defensive. Why not just control that instinct, as part of the under control plan? Because you cannot. It is your dog, leash it. Nobody wants to deal with your dog, well behaved or not. Sadly, you are not special, nor are the other folks with dogs.

And every leash seems to be one foot longer than the distance to me.

not sure why so many are having an issue with my dog. Mine has not caused any issues with other dogs. They have all come at us, and my dog is on the leash when anyone is around. No one has to deal with my dog at all. I am off in the wooded part of the park away from others. It is other's dogs who have charged at us from their owners 1/4 mile away. I am saying my dog gets slightly defensive/anxious (not aggressive) when I am holding her with a leash (can't get away) and an aggressive dog is coming at her.

All 3 times the dogs won't leave us alone and the owners have been extraordinarily slow in getting to the dog getting control of it (range from 5 minutes to 20+). It isn't the end of the world (obviously), but I've had to stop my round for that time, my dog isn't always fond of other dogs and can be defensive, and I guess is just a pet peeve of mine (pun not intended, but approved of after the fact). Is this just me or have others experienced this as well?

DGD, do you honestly believe that public leash laws don't apply to you and your dog because you think your dog is "well behaved"?

If so, then the alcohol ban at the park shouldn't apply to me, because I am a well behaved sot.

Back on topic:

I think leasing a dog sounds perfect for you.

I think your dog has mastered passive aggression, perhaps even wicked side-eye.

Always bring my dog to the course and she’s on a leash the whole time, except when there’s absolutely no one around I’ll let her run. There are two enormous fields where she will run like a bat out of hell for about 10 minutes, then run back to me and collapse on the ground. It’s pretty hilarious to watch.

Most dog owners we encounter are responsible.

Why do dog owners always (almost always) think their dog is ok but other dogs should be leached. The answer is simple. If you are in public keep your dog on leach.
