I hate that! My dog is really friendly with people and kids, but he came from an abusive situation so he is really nervous around other dogs...Especially when he is on a leash (park rules) and another dog unleashed runs up to him sniffing and pawing at him (my dog is only 13 pounds)...He gets really nervous when large dogs come running up at him. I try to socialize him the best I can and I take him for walks at the park. I have control of my dog and he has never bitten another dog and I know his little signs that he is about to...but sometimes people don't have control of their dogs and let them run up and sniff the butts of leashed dogs.....I usually walk my dog on the walking/biking trail instead of taking him into the fenced dog area...so these unleashed dogs can cause problems for bike riders and skaters as well..
One time a unleashed dog ran up to us showing its teeth....I about had a heart attack! This dog was atleast 45 pounds...The owner came running up a minute or two later, "don't worry he wouldn't hurt a fly!"
yea right... haha
