Re: “Enough with the dog shootings, already

My goodness Jill, feeling feisty this morning? I didn't say anything even close to that. You said it yourself, "It's (dog park) a safe place to bring a WELL MANNERED DOG to play and be social!"
My dogs aren't robots, I have one, however that used to be a humping, dog-aggressive, off leash asshole. When I adopted him, his name was Don't Worry He's Friendly too. So I invested in some dog training, for both of us. I felt he was worth it.
Now, the only time I have trouble with him is if we are charged by an out of control aggressive dog--like he used to be. Dog Parks are FULL of these dogs.
My vet (hope my going to the vet doesn't give the impression I think I'm better than you) told me the number one cause of dog on dog injuries and death are dog park altercations.
Stopping your Don't Worry He's Friendly from jumping into the jaws of my leashed dog with a firm "No" has proven to be an effective way to protect you, me and both our dogs.
Shouting, "Mine has rabies!" makes me laugh, I can't help it.
I have stopped going to dog parks completely, it was best for us all, but I still meet off leash dogs without a reliable recall in city and state parks, downtown, and in our neighborhood.
Now, it seems more important than ever to make sure my dogs stay close to me and don't run off to greet strangers without my permission. Dogs are being shot by a lunatic and it terrifies me. I bet I know what their name was.

Re: “Enough with the dog shootings, already

I meet many dogs bearing the same moniker. Purebred dogs, rescue dogs, nice dogs and mean ones, the only thing in common is they’re all off leash.

You’ve met him too, he’s named, “Don’t Worry, He’s Friendly” and haunts dog parks, off leash areas, city parks and mountain trails. I’ve met him pooping in my front yard, fence fighting with my dogs, and running towards me and my protective, leashed dogs at 100 mph.

“Come here!” his person screams. “Don’t Worry He’s Friendly, get back here! Dammit, I mean it!”

Don’t Worry He’s Friendly usully has a guardian instead of an owner, wears a bandanna and on the rare occasions he’s leashed it’s always with an extend-o leash. His guardian is extremely worried about his dog’s rights. At the dog park, he’s never restrained, even if he’s been humping you, your dog and Great Aunt Matilda since you walked through the gate.

He’ll wiggle up to you downtown, in your neighborhood, at school playgrounds, and in city parks, and if you ask why, the answer is always the same, “Don’t Worry He’s Friendly.”
I love all four of my dogs, but I don’t want them to scare anybody, especially that crazy dude with the gun. I committed to keeping them safe by investing in professional training--for all of us. It created well-mannered, friendly dogs that heel and come when they’re called, both on and off leash.

With approached by a loose dog, I step between him and my dogs with a stern, “No. Bad dog.”
When his guardian calls, “Don’t Worry He’s Friendly,” I reply, “Mine have rabies!”

It works every time. Even Don’t Worry He’s Friendly stops in his tracks at “Bad Dog.,” and his guardian always comes on the run, leash in hand.
