WHY can't you just train your dog? ... WHY can't you take your dog further than the curb and back, maybe exercise it once in a while? WHY do you need to pick it up every time another dog passes... I have a very tough time believing your jack russel terrier is stupid and "satan". or maybe I am just missing something?
LMAO ... I hear ya ... I get so fed up of people doing this ... especially when I am walking by and Kyleigh is not even interested in their dog ...
If you have a good back, and can handle some "weight" for a couple of minutes ... do this:
As soon as you see the "little" dogs coming, pick up your GSD and tell the people, frantically:
Please, hurry up and go by ... hurry, please, can you go faster? ... he's ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIED OF LITTLE DOGS - he was attacked see ... OMG, can you please hurry up and go by? He's getting really heavy ... and I don't want to drop him and have your dogs attack him, I simply CANNOT afford another trip to the vet b/c of small dogs ...
I did this when Kyleigh was about 7 months old and let me tell you I got some funny looks ... but they got the hint ... they actually came up to me a couple of days later and asked why I acted like that ... I told them straight out ... you're creating the problem for your dog ... blah blah blah ... it worked ... now, when we see them in the neighbourhood, the two small dogs are happy to see Kyleigh, and Kyleigh just looks at them and sighs ... oh them, again eh??? But we have no more issues!
