Can't Get Near Car

A couple in the grocery store left the back of their Jeep up with three large dogs loose inside while they were shopping. When I was checking out a lady who was parked beside the came inside pretty upset because these dogs kept lunging at whoever walked by the car. The owners were called on the loud speaker and instead of just closing the back of the Jeep, they insisted that you could 'just walk by' and nothing happen. I'm not afraid of dogs,but I don't blame this woman for not walking by the dogs ,especially since they weren't just barking.They were snarling and going crazy at everyone. The police did get called by the store manager who made the couple go ahead and leave the store. This whole thing could have been prevented if the dog owners' were a little more considerate. They didn't think it was a big deal because 'the dogs knew not to get out of the car,and were just protecting it'.

My dogs will protect their car, but you would never know they were in it until you tried to get in it.

Sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

I agree, You can't expect people to not be afraid of 3 large dogs barking and lunging. I had an experience not too long ago, we were parked in a parking lot to go into a restaurant and I noticed before I got out that there were dogs in the car next to us.

As soon as I got out of the car the dogs started going berserk. The windows were rolled down a good deal and as soon as I excited one of the dogs lunged and grabbed a piece of my hair. I was able to get a hold of my hair before the dog pulled me in but it kind of freaked me out for a minute. I wasn't all that close to the car and have never approached a car with a dog inside of it, especially one that was barking.

I was in disbelief that anyone would have the windows rolled down that far if you know your dog is going to be protective of the car. I wish I would have spoken to the owners, I would have given them a piece of my mind!
