lmao fair enough, i mean im not afraid to tell people no, it just seems exhausting and like i said a little weird to tell people before they even try. You're prob right though.
Oh I imagine, it would get old, saying the samething over and over again?? As I know well as I did just that! But I did it without the benefit of a "Service Vest." And sometimes ... saying "No" was heartbreaking for me.
I'm a Boxer guy and my Struddell thought people were the next best thing to "Baked Bread!" I'd always insistent on people asking first ... but my answer was "always" yes please do!
But with Rocky ... my GSD that was just not gonna cut it! I had to start saying no ... for him! And he got that but there was sometimes heartbreak in the wake.
A mentally handicapped adult wanted to pet him?? And I was just "not willing to allow it." By and large by that time ... "Rocky" had proven himself to be "safe" but ... while "Rocky" had let it go as it were ... I had not! The person, persisted that dogs liked him and I was just as firm in saying "NO!"
And yeah ... I won out, but it broke my heart ... That was a few years ago, and I still remember that encounter. I'm not a Pro you know ... so it's kinda hard to know when your job is done???
Still the vest "won't hurt" the less ignorant ... will take note and won't interfere! That would be people like me! But you most likely won't notice because well ... "we won't interfer."
