I always move my dogs to the side for runners, cyclists, etc., too. Nobody needs to encounter my dogs unless it is okay with them.
I belong to a couple of hiking and camping groups. One thing I see in the forums on the increase is people with out of control aggressive dogs on the trails. They refuse to muzzle their dogs and IMO subject other people and dogs to danger. If you say something in the groups about them prioritizing the safety of others or leaving dangerous dogs that they admit they can not control at home, they become quite violent. It's scary to think that out of control aggressive dogs can be out on remote trails in the hands of people that need anger management therapy.
If you need equipment to maintain control of your dog, understand you’re hanging on to your dog’s body because you’ve lost his mind!
