We were camping in a area in our Casita & found an Apple Festival was going on. We grabbed out little dog and we were on our way. It was at an apple farm. It was crowded and folks had there dogs with them on a lease. As we were leaving I noticed a man sitting on a loading dock,with 2 Pitbull looking dogs. My wife told me to stop & we need to go another way. A couple walked by us with a black & white collie past the 2 large dogs. The one large dog alerted and the owner put his arm around both dogs necks. The larger dog backed away & the owner tried to stop him but the dog was to powerful. It pulled out of it's harness and attacked the collie in a matter of seconds. It was horrible. The leg & shoulder was injured on the Collie by the time the big dog was pulled away. Some one got a towel & wrapped the dog up & the owner got on her phone to find a emergency vet in the area. What if this had been a child? If your dog is to big to control, leave it at home.

After the vet bill it's time for the lawyer's bill..

But yes. If I'd been there and the dog had attacked the child.. Well. I have no qualms on killing a dog (or its owner) to protect a child.

I once had a Doberman, retired K-9, sight and voice command. I am a firm believer that if you are going to have a large powerful dog, it needs to be well trained. Make that any dog because those little yappers can inflict bad bites as well. Your pets need to be trained in the event they get away from you.

Terrible happening.

My dogs don't go to people events like a festival. It's too much going on and too crowded to be safe. Regardless of how well-trained my dogs are, the atmosphere creates an unsafe situation. The noises, foods, and people can stress out a dog easily and that can mean a dog fight or worse. Even if MY dog is the perfect dog and completely safe, that doesn't make every other perfect.

I have a 15lb Papillon dog who just loves to walk around campground or anywhere for that matter. One day were at a state park at the beach doing just that. We happened by a small TT and we could hear dogs from INSIDE the unit. Suddenly there dogs crashed through the screen door on and ran to attack my dog. I had to push them off and try to pick her up at the same time. Fortunately the owners were quick to respond, and other than being shaken my dog was unhurt.

In many cases where a dog attack occurs, the irresponsible owner is the problem. With this type owner, pet has no training, often times no vet care/vaccinations, and the owner, little income/assets. It leaves the injured party almost no recourse to recover losses. The attacking dog may be confiscated/put to death, but little comfort for the victim, be it your pet, child, or yourself. Sadly the irresponsible owner will eventually just get another dog.

My post would have not served any purpose other than my own opinion.

Please don't start the "I hate pitbulls" pitch. Serves no purpose, nor am I sure what the purpose of the post is. Dog attacks happens. People attacks happen. I am puzzled that a dog could back out of a full harness if it's properly used. What apple festival was it?

I don,t understand why the apple owners let dogs in????? and owners of dogs should not be taking them to public events. more than the dog is to blame for this mess.just my opinion there should be no animals at any public event.
