yep,, dropped a few "f-bombs" and then some!!
 
Typical story... I was pushing a wheel barrel through the gate and the dogs made a run for it.... with four dogs already a block away before you could blink,, I grabbed my truck keys and took off after them. They were right around the corner in a yard with a lady standing there...fyi, my four dogs are two lhasa apsos, a six month old GSD and a two month old Goldendoodle...not an aggressive bone in any of them.....
I hop out of the truck and start to thank her and apologize.... she starts screaming at me, yelling, "ARE THESE YOUR DOGS!?! THEY ATTACKED MY DAUGHTER!!!"
I said, "Attacked? There's no way my dogs attacked anyone... they would never...." Then she said, "well they scared her"
:bump:Then the dad comes out yelling at me... threatening to call the police...
I snap!! I go blackout angry on him..... understanding the implications of an accusation of a dog attacking a little girl and knowing this didn't happen... I went off on this guy... it's the closest I've come to smashing someone in the mouth in 15 years... I told him to call whoever he wants, started cussing him up and down.... All the while, I was gathering up the dogs and throwing them in my backseat.... he called the police and i heard him say his daughter had just been attacked by dogs!!!
Long story short... I drove off and the police never came.... I live a block and a half from this turdbucket and his house is on our regular walking route.... don't threaten a man's family! Yes!! My dogs are part of my Family!! I'm just real happy he never came within arms reach....lol :bump:

Not a good situation for you. Even if they jumped in excitement on the kid, you risked having your dogs deemed dangerous. Then you would have to deal with the consequences of that. Police don't care about dogs, and people are very emotional and short fused when it comes to their children.

You need to teach a solid recall, and have your dogs do a down stay when you open the gate.

i would like to think that i would have apologized, gathered up my dogs and just left without responding.

We're working on the training,, just not there yet with anything being "solid"

I'd love to see a 6 month old GSD and an 8 week doodle doing a down stay... and really would be amazed with a recall!

I was leaning towards that until the dad came out... he was red hot and acted like he was going to charge me before he sized me up... it was a tense situation... i definitely could have handled it better

You have to figure they had some adrenalin going. I would apologize profusely and have better control of your dogs. Consider it a wakeup call!

You know your dogs are not aggressive - they did not -their kid is more imporant to them than your dogs. How do you know they did not knock her down in play? What if that had been an older person - I have bone spurs in both shins from being run into by my own dogs.

I get all that,,, but to say "Attacked!" then admit that the daughter was only scared and still call the police saying "Attacked!" Oh **** no!!! Call me a bad owner,,, yell at me about controlling my dogs... say anything you want about me,,, but be honest,,,, don't lie to make it sound worse!!! That's when I snapped and no longer felt the need to be apologetic!!!
