In many cases where a dog attack occurs, the irresponsible owner is the problem.


There are no bad dogs, just bad dog owners. Having said that, there are certain breeds that have a propensity towards certain behaviors. However, each dog is an individual with its own personality. The wisest thing is to never put your dog into any situation where it could be in danger as the OP describes, or put your dog in a situation that makes it scared, over-stimulated, feeling unsafe, or even just uncomfortable. The end result may be like the original post.

“Serves no purpose, nor am I sure what the purpose of the post is.”

Then reread the post. Are you blinded by your love of dogs?

Common story sadly. Our little dog, on leash, was pit bulll attacked by pit off leash. The owner had to hit his dog on the head with a big rock to get it to release. No apology, no nothing. OSP asked them to leave the state campground.

Bat-dog has pulled out of a harness. With her body shape, they just can't fit correctly in all places, so there is always a weak point for her to maneuver out of. I use the martingale collars instead.

Regrettably we seem to be living in a dog loving world where dogs are being given more and more freedom. They can be a big problem in campgrounds or really anywhere. Usually the owners are conscious of other people's rights but not always. In this case it was a very dangerous problem. I would sue and seek to have the owner arrested for contributing to the attack. I enjoy a small well controlled dog but we need to stand up to dog problems and owners or it's going to get worse.

Over the years we have occasionally gone out of our way to avoid some dogs that give off a bad vibe. I personally don't think anyone should bring a dog which doesn't get along with other dogs to an event where other dogs are going to attend - nobody wants to listen to a dog barking every time another dog walks by.

One of my neighbor's used to raise Rottweilers. He walked them around the neighborhood without a leash. I had a BC and 2 Corgis at the time. I started carrying a cattle prod. Then all the Rotts were on a leash.

People with big dangerous dogs are often the last ones to use a leash. They need to wise up. I found the cattle prod to be the great equalizer.
My Dad had wild dog problems working in Puerto Rico. He used a lead horse whip that he carried in his back pocket. I had a paper route as a kid with some loose big dogs. I carried the whip in my back pocket. It gave me some confidence and I never had to use it.

It was a pit bull attacking my family and dogs that got me into firearms. I carry everywhere I'm legally allowed to carry. Given the OP's situation, 1st, I don't take my dogs into a festival environment, and 2nd, given the probable number of people in attendance, a firearm would be difficult to safely stop the attack.

To your point tho, the owner wasn't attacking you, so he wasn't a threat that needed to be stopped.
