I don't know if I would tell him right off the bat that you were recording it.. only because then you couldn't get any evidence.. in my head he'd be like "oh ok not that person, we'll wait for the next one." I wouldn't NOT tell him, I would just wait a few minutes, getting on the recording, you asking him to not come near you and when he continues, say "I'm recording this for record, please stay away." But that's just my thinking, I want evidence and for this guy to understand that he is in the wrong.

Though, it might also just be an ignorant owner who is trying to get his smaller dog used to bigger dogs by forcing him to walk by them and a simple "Hey dude, what are you doing? Do you understand, A, B, and C....??"

I don't think announcing or not about taking a video matters because he'll be able to see her holding her phone up in front of her and pointing it at him.

Good idea to video though and I don't think Sri can stop this man from doing this. People like that feel they are above rules/laws/norms and are the 'authority'. Usually anyone that confronts them or asks them to stop will be looked down upon as a lessor.

So *usually* it takes the 'real' authorities to slap them down some......so taking a video and reporting him will lend weight to other reports.....technically he's not doing anything illegal. At this point it's rude and dangerous but he has the right to walk on the public right of away and be a jerk......until something bad happens.

You could leave an anonymous note on his car, nothing too nasty - write the name of a trainer on it or ask him to muzzle the dog.

You could also walk away from him, so see him approaching then cross the street or turn and walk the other way. This would ruin his fun, it almost seems as if he wants to provoke something.

My sister lives next to Newark. I was going to buy her a Taser for her birthday since sometimes she needs to catch the bus to NYC at 6am and its dark. She told me they are not allowed to carry anything to protect themselves!

O.K. c'mon no air horn or flash lights? What about a loud whistle or umbrella? I have a hard time believing it's that extreme. Got the cite that specifically states that?

If they haven't by now it's probably too late. It's like Stockholm syndrome. Eventually they convince themselves it's what they want.

To the OP:
Video yes!

Stop by the sporting goods store and pick up a couple airhorns. Smaller hardware stores sometimes have them and marine stores will definitely have the big loud foghorn ones.

Give one to the girl and keep one for yourself. There's nothing funnier than a little dog getting the shpoo scared out of it by an airhorn. It doesn't work on confident breeds like pitbulls or rotties or GSDs - unless they're a spook.

My neighbors have a petshop GSD, she's a flaky spook. Several times she ran up to me walking Otto with my kids barking all crazy spookie, scared my daughter but Otto growled at her and she ran away.

Then I got pre-emptive wtih the airhorn on her. she came charging at him like usual, I got out the horn and she did a backflip away from us, flew up her stairs and over her fence so fast it was like a blurr.

Now she sees us, watches for a moment like she's thinking about charging then she goes the other way. No she shouldn't be loose.
