With concealed carry laws in all states, you never know who is armed and who isn't.
That person could just walk up and shoot your dog on any pretense at all----and claim public safety as an excuse.
I can't think of any way at all to protect yourself from people like that.
I counted at least 5 provocations in this short video of a guy(with a heart condition supposedly) killing a moose to "protect" his son[whom you are led to believe is a small child-----but turns out to be 15 years old in later much more detailed discussions]. The moose is originally maybe 1/4 of a mile away and walking off at the beginning of the encounter.
I think there are a whole lot of people walking around with guns out there just LOOKING for any excuse they can to pull out a gun and shoot something for "protection".

I let my very friendly mutt out if the car once at a off leash zone for a quick pee, some man started yelling " if your dog comes near me I will kick its heads in" well shiggs was a distance away from him and had no interest in going over. He got on his mountain bike and promptly sped away only to hit a bump and drop the thing in a ditch. I laughed and laughed and laughed.

There are tons of idiots everywhere, try not to sweat it.
Also, I'm a tiny 90 lb asian girl with a 80 lb shepherd. Some people love it, some people think I can't handle it and pick on me. Don't let it get to you

|huntergreen||i wouldn't pay any attention to anyone yelling out of a car window. i would keep an eye out for the person who didn't clean up after his/her dog.|

|Blanketback||I had to collect a urine sample from my dog one time, and somebody saw what I was doing. They didn't ask me why I was collecting it: they told me I was doing a good job picking up after my dog!!! LOL!!!|

I'm an old guy and young girls yell at me when I walk my dog. Hmmm.

Yeah, I've gotten quite a few people that have yelled at me about my "wolf-dog" and my "killer dog". I'm bad at coming up with responses on the spot, so often times if someone is yelling at me from their yard or their car, I'll put on my biggest, brightest smile and just smile and wave as I pass. Makes them uncomfortable as all get-out, doesn't signal any stress or anger to my dog, and the looks of pure confusion can be pretty hilarious sometimes.
The only time I ever take anything seriously is if there is an actual physical threat to my dog. I've only had to act once when I was passing by a house near my neighborhood. The owner was out watering his front lawn and said something about getting my dangerous animal out of the neighborhood before he called the cops on me. Apparently I didn't move fast enough down the sidewalk because he started pelting me and my pup (4 months at the time) with palm sized rocks. I had to grab my pup and get out as quickly as possible.
But that's an isolated incidence after ten years of owning large dogs seen as aggressive by the public, so I wouldn't expect many other people to run into a situation like that.
