    Aggressive dogs and stupid owners!!!

    Bronson got attacked this morning by another dog on our walk, so what I want to say is...
    If you know you've got an aggressive dog that doesn't get on with other dogs, then do something about it to correct this behaviour, don't just constantly warn other dog walkers/owners, then let your dog go for every other one that goes near it. Your dog is your responsibility and it's behaviour/aggression is a reflection of your attitude to life. Would your let your child go round attacking every other kid it sees? No, so why is it acceptable to let a dog do it?

    Poor Bronson, I hope he’s ok.
    Sadly there will always be people who have no consideration for others.

    Was the aggressor on lead and did Bronson by any chance approach him/her off lead?

    So sorry this has happened. We have to be oh so careful these days

    Fully agree. Can't stand seeing reactive/aggressive dogs in public places. At least muzzle them so they can't bite other animals or people. My dog is 100 lbs and most aggressive dogs tend to leave him alone, but I've had issues now and then... Usually a pit bull or a Chihuahua. Hopefully your dog is fine.

    I hope Mr Bronson is ok. So sorry to read about this. Please let us know how he’s doing.

    With the breed I have I never let them off leash away from home, as I know they don’t particularly care for other dogs, but I also don’t shy away from taking them into Home Depot or the pet food store, where the employees really like them. I will say however that nobody should let their dog approach another dog, on or off leash, without asking the owner first if it’s ok. IMO that’s just good dog edict 101.

    Just an update on the little man, and sorry for the late reply as I've not been well myself.

    Thankfully he's ok, and thank you from us both for all the messages of support. It looked and sounded worse in the moment! I checked him over fully when I brought straight him home and it looks like he only got grabbed by his loose neck skin, with a tiny scratch behind his ear, no puncture marks or deep gashes.

    Bronson's trouble is, he wants to play with everyone/dog he sees which isn't a bad thing, but I have to be careful around new dogs, which this one was (a bull mastif type.) Now I'm not saying just because it was a BM that that was the reason it was agressive, he's had similar encounters with nasty Yorkies which the owner warned me about when I approached. But they were both on leads as I always take that precaution before introductions if I see someone in the distance. Bronson barks to instigate play and still has his boisterous puppy enthusiasm which I try to keep in check, so as not to irritate dogs that just want to be left alone. I am a considerate owner, but this guy I passed didnt seem to have a clue how to handle or control his dog, which showed through his lack of knowledge in what to do in this situation, not trying to stop or pull his dog away after going for Bronson. Plus he didn't speak English, so couldn't communicate.
    Which got me thinking, to have a dog you should have to pass a test and gain a licence, like you do with cars to prove your safe and competent to own an animal. Demonstrating handling and safety knowledge in all manner of situations.
    Then your details can be kept on record in case of any issues, so it can be referred back to for any authorities that might need to deal with the owner.
    And if you change dogs you change the details.
    Anyway, that's just my opinion.
