honestly, I know how hard it is. But, no, I don't hesitate to remove other people kids from my dog. Because I know that if they get hurt my DOG is going to be the one facing euthanization. Sadly, that is the way the world works so I'd rather risk some parent complaining I touched their kid than my dog scratching or knocking them down

Yup I have no problem intervening and getting rid of the kid but some people on this forum seem to think that we all have eyes on the back of our head and are at fault for not *preventing* situations like this. Sorry but I can't possibly sit here and think of every outrageous thing that could happen with my dog. If that's the case then really not a single person here could take their dog on a walk around the block. To date none of my dogs have ever bitten a kid and I have no reasons not to trust them in public (and plenty of training, socialization, and proof that they are well behaved dogs) but sometimes people just do or allow their kids to do the most ridiculous things.

My pup is now 4 months and I have noticed that people show her respect now and ask me if it ok to pet her. I was also thinking of one of the vests that say "Ask to pet"

I'm irritated at this point, Zoeys freaking out and the mother of the girl just turns and says and i quote "AWWW, HOW CUTE" so zoey puts the little girl to the ground, not aggressively or anything just to stop this little from climbing on her back. and this women FLIPS OUT!!! so were yelling at each other in the middle of the street the little girls crying which pisses the mom off even more. and i just cant help but think what if that little girl ran up to a dog that was actually aggressive and the dog bit her. i mean COME ON people teach your kids not to just run up to any dog strange or not.

How did your adult sized dog "puts her on the ground"? And then your dog "Freaks out"? (What does that mean?)

THIS!

Generally, if I see a child I watch them for a moment. I've always been good at reading body language so I can catch a very slight hint most times. If I notice they're paying Koda attention, or if I feel the slightest bit uncomfortable, I move away. Generally her spiked collar, choke chain and her looks in general make most stay back.
I don't usually cross the street, but I just move far enough that I will be able to stop the approaching child from moving to her.

Honestly I don't see how the dog shaking the child off is an issue. Is a nine month old puppy expected to just stand there while a strange, hyper kid is jumping on its back? Just my two cents lol.

Also--- I'd take that stick after the mom. Not the kid.

I have noticed on this forum that most people believe its an either/or thing. No one is saying that it is "ok" for a child to just go up to a dog as it wants to. lol

Dog people/All kids are brats its not our fault!
Kid People/kids get away, its all the dogs fault!

lol, sorry, I find it funny. As it was said before, the responsibility is all the way around, not to one or the other, it doesn't have to be an either/or thing, but it does make for good drama

Shaking a child off or moving isn't an issue, saying "he put her to the ground" is an issue.

"My dog put the puppy to the ground" "My dog put the child to the ground"

Both imply and bring to mind something more than just shaking something off. But, it was explained, so I don't see why it should be an issue.

I have raised 3 kids, and I still think all kids are brats! Maybe even more so because I've raised kids.

Wow! That action (depending on how it is implemented) could cause a few real problems!

I can't imagine some stranger adult "removing my kid" without me risking 20 to life!

And god help the person who tried something like that if my dog was in the vicinity.


Would be a MUCH better idea to remove the dog, I would think!
