Yeeeeep ! Anyway , just sent you a PM. If you want to walk that area on our planned walks I would be fine with it. If nothing else , I need reactive dogs around so I can work on our training lol.

And technically , no , the larger dogs are not in physical danger by this little one..but they are in legal danger. If both dogs are on lead and there is a fight and little prince charming is injured it will only be assumed that the owner of the GSD can't control them even on lead. That can be a legitimate issue , unless there are impartial eyewitnesses to report to the contrary.

You should be able to train it very quickly. If it's taking long you're doing it wrong. I can send you a video of a dog that knew absolutely nothing less than 4 weeks ago. Not his own name not even potty training. We had him walking loose leash completely naked with a whole yard full of dogs barking at him.

I just replied . I am sure there will be plenty of reactive dogs no matter where we go.
I only saw him twice so far. first time with me and my dog, second time yesterday, but both incidents happened a few days apart.

Sure. I can put the behavior on the dog but I'll still need to teach you how to maintain it.

My first thought when I read this was that he is intentionally provoking bigger dogs. Almost to see if one would bite so then he could sue the owner..

I would definitely talk to him. Would you happen to know where he lives or is it just on walks where you see him. This is the confontational side of me... I would make it very clear to him that the behavior is unacceptable and that you are documenting incidents. I'd make him aware that if something were to happen to him or his dog, he would be at fault. Though there is the legality side, and covering your butt too; talking to AC or local PD about it to make sure they know what's going on IN CASE it happens again and the little dog and/or the man is "attacked" after being provoked.

Yeah , having a record of complaint might help if a larger dog attacks him. If you see him again I would just whip out the phone while telling him to please keep his dog back. Video evidence , bring it to the cops. Even if your dog does not bite him , you might save the hide of another larger dog if the police have documentation of his provocation . Otherwise it will just generate a headline like " pitbull on leash kills small dog"

Honestly I'm with Whitney, whenever you see him put your dog in a sit on the opposite side of the road and if he pulls the same stunt simply bring out your phone. Start recording and yell loud enough for him to hear "I'm recording this, please stay away"

You're being open, honest, non-threatening, and keeping your dog under control. If something did happen a picture/video is worth 1,000 words.
