Rant, old stupid guy ruined my walk MOVED TO STORIES

Just took my pup out for a walk, while I'm walking I'm also teaching my dog to learn how to sit when I tell him to so he can learn to sit and stay and some guy drives by yelling at me saying " did you pick up that ****?!!" Made me so mad. Like who are you to yell at me like this?
For one my dog didn't even take a poo.. ?! I look at him all confused cause it know he didn't just poop because it was pushing his butt down so he can sit. I guess he thought he pooped but still it doesn't mean he could shout that out to me. ( I always pick up after my dog) JUST A RANT. He pretty much ruined my lovely walk with my dog. A old dumb guy swearing/yelling at a 17y/o is pretty immature.

Don't let it bother you. There are all types of people out there.

One day I was walking my Min Pin and someone drove by and yelled "That's your wife's dog!"

Thanks!
I learned hand motions to make him sit, but some lady in my neighborhood gave me some advice telling me " say sit once and if he doesn't then push his butt down " but I'll be looking at the link you sent me thanks

Yup grumpy old men. Unfortunately you're going to run into them throughout your life. They also tend to pick on young females because they know it's safer to do so.

So....the only thing you can do is learn how to feel sorry for them for that's all they have left, to yell out their frustration on strangers and it's a sad way to end life.

Don't let it ruin your walks or day.

If everyone picked up after their dogs, people wouldn't yell at other people.
If you want to get upset at someone, I'd get upset at the helpful person who told you to push your dogs butt down. She's done more to mess you up than the man worried about an unauthorized pile...

Keep in mind, that you can't control other people but you are in charge of yourself -- That is, you are responsible for your reactions... It CAN be hard not to get upset at remarks like this but try to keep in mind that you can choose to blow it off.

Men often feel that every female is deserving of their criticism or unsolicited advice.

I was working my dog in a field , and he does well with a good game of tug as a reward after a session. Some guy rolled up in his car , slowed it to a stop , rolled down the window and said " you should not play tug with your dog , it confuses them about who is Alpha " . Alvin did not even let go of the leather tug..just his eyeballs were shifting and his ears were changing directions listening to the convo.( comical really) . I had replied to the guy " I am not playing tug , I am just trying to get my Chihuahua back!" . The guy shook his head , rolled up his window , and left.

Alvin - GSD - born @ late February 2013
Bo - Boxer/Hound - born @ late June 2008
Greta - English Mastiff - born somewhere between 2003 and 2005 ,estimated.
ALL MY RESCUES!

Lol there's a guy in our apartment complex terrified of dogs. one time Lara peed and he asked if I was going to pick it up - he somehow thought it was poop. I had to explain that she squats when she pees....
