1st dog show!!

I had a really great time at my first dog show. Got to ask how to join clubs watching shows spending times with dogs. Although in the end didn't end up the way I imagined. Got attacked by a Doberman who I was petting seemed to enjoy and I think got too carried away humanizing. Got punctures onto face one near the eye. Man I'm so stupid. I'm alright though. This is my fault the owner felt so bad about it and I feel bad too. Ugh I know not to humanize dogs get way too carried away once in awhile. Don't know why it happens. Really worried about her dog now.

Yikes. I really do hope your ok! That's awful.

Next time if you visit a dog show relax and just be a spectator. Enjoy-learn.

I did warn you.. Dogs arent little humans, hopefully you learn from this. Drop the animal activist nonsense and start learning from people who know what they are doing.

i'm glad you and your dog are ok. your attending a dog show.
i think the dog that attacked needs more socializing and training.
i've attended many dog shows, some of them i work. in all of the
years i've been involved in shows i've never seen a dog fight
or dogs being aggressive.

This happens to a good friend of mine way too often. She treats dogs like people and gets way to comfortable around unfamiliar dogs. She was nipped on the face by another friend's dog because she cornered it, was talking very loudly and got in it's face, even after being told not to and the dog being visibly uncomfortable.

I am glad you're alright.

Sorry this happened! Though I would think that the handler would have known that their dog is reactive and inform you.

"Really worried about her dog" ........ what are the consequences here. Typically the dog is considered "at fault" by the law even when people make mistakes. Often the dog pays the ultimate price.

did you hug it or something? or just squatted down petting it?
I hope you're okay, that sounds painful

Maybe you better stay away from the dogs altogether...

Do you like fish?
