But, the German Shepherd Dog is both a sheep herder and sheep guardian. The guardian part is for human or animal threats, and dogs are a huge threat to sheep -- watch any Lassie movie.

But really, a k9 is out there trained to do a job. Having a loose dog irritating a police dog when it is trying to do its job, is a bit much to expect of a dog, to ignore a possible threat. Remember, that dogs do not look at a small dog and say, "yup, that's no threat." Size doesn't matter. Dog doesn't figure, "that human is under 18, not a threat." Nope, doesn't matter, if the human or canine is menacing, a K9 is going to respond to it.

Ensuring k9s work well with others, share their toys and treats, and ignore ankle biters are not regular parts of k9 training.

The dog owners are idiots. They know their dog gets out, and they just allow it. They think it is cute for having the guts to go after a k9. Fine the idiot owners. I really don't care how big the dog is. Those cops are on the payroll to do a job, and two of them should not have to have been chasing some ankle biter down the street to keep it away from the crime scene. I am glad they didn't just shoot it, but I wouldn't have blamed them if they did.

People need to pay more attention to their pets.
Ugh screw that..this is how you deal with Pug Thugs:




Let the PR department deal with it!

Zero! It's a hardware problem!

Many some pros will chime in. The cops actually caught a break and maybe will review there K9 training program.

So this is a great video on how some dogs are reactive when they are on lead with another dog that is not on a lead, regardless of their training.
Far as I know it is? Not acceptable to me! Handler and dog would be going back to school!

I kept finding dog poop in my driveway and once I stepped in it.

I was fed up, so I grabbed two of my leashes, and wrote a note to them to use them instead of letting their dogs run loose to do business and do it in my driveway and that the barking was out of control! I put all that in a ziplock bag and left it on their steps. The leashes are now hanging in their tree in the front yard. They put up a huge response note in the tree but I never read it. The barking is minimal now and I never see them loose anymore, but three months later and the leashes are still in the tree.
