Hey all I just went for a walk with my 6 month gsd and not even going a block from our home a neoghbors dog charged at mine. Zima (my dog) growled to maybe defend what she couldn't really see because it was dark and when the dog reached her she was screaming at the top of her lungs. All I could do is pull her harness to try to get her away because I didn't want to get injured from this dog either. It looked like a pitbull or something I'm not sure. While trying to get her away she landed on her back on the edge of the sidewalk. There are mot vissable marks on zima or me. The guy picked up his dog appologized five times and got inside asap.
Should I take her to the vet to get her looked at just in case? And this really makes me not want to go on walks with zima any more. When we do trips to petsmart not issues. Would it be ok if I just exercised her in the backyard more and not walk her? This is the second attack one at a park becauze a dog slipped its leash and this one in my new neighborhood I moved into a month ago.
Also what should I do about this neighbor?
