If it comes down to the necessity of walking past Chance's house, I'll probably text first to tell her I'm coming her way. With her hand broken, the last thing she needs is to have to deal with Chance going insane. And his bench is at the window so he can watch everyone pass. If she knows I'm coming, she can close her bedroom door, and I can pass by the Front of the house, where he wont have access to the window.

Over time, I assume he'd get used to hearing my clicks, etc on the street as I pass by on the opposite side of the road.

Unfortunately, Chance has been alloweed to "own" the street for a couple of years now. Most of us owners avoid the corner altogether between him and the 120lb Lab-Rot on the other side of the corner. Both are routinely chained to their front porches in the summer

Brilliant.
"Whenever U can, make any behavior issue WORSE - don't deal with it, don't work to reduce it, exacerbate it."

Has anyone notified the local authorities of these irresponsible owners, who leave their dogs out to threaten passersby, & to go insane with frustration when they can't attack them?
This BTW is the perfect way to CAUSE a mauling by any dog. They are essentially teaching the dog to severely injure someone, when they get the opportunity.


I realize she didn't choose this dog - but she owns him now; & she needs to live up to her commitment, & keep the community safe. Leaving him outside, chained by the hour, is NOT responsible.

If anyone got hurt, i'd tell them to sue her into bankruptcy - & feel free to show her this post, as I'm entirely serious. // Having an enormous dog "gifted" to U & being disabled on top of it, is not an excuse to park him outside to practice threatening ppl & dogs.
Someday, he'll get a chance to nail an innocent passerby - & her finances, present & future, will be wiped-out.

She's had him for years, not months - & this is a community-wide concern.

I don't think there are is anything that can be done, as neither dog is out for extended periods, and neither has actually attacked(that's been reported) i've heard stories, but those are heresay. This neghbourhood is horrible for uncontrolled dogs and cats(20+feral cats that I counted 2 years ago), and Animal control is around regularly issuing citations and picking up strays.. A few minutes ago Shamas was attacked by a little dog that tore out of it's house and went for his throat. He was actually very impressive- he picked the thing up by it's scruff and it hung there until I was able to get around to his face and make him drop it. Then it retreated into it's house whimpering, uninjured. I suffered a bitten finger, but I don't know which dog got me.

I brought him in, looked him over and gave him lots of treats and praise for his restraint..then took him for another walk. The last thing I need is for him to fear ANOTHER place in the neighbourhood. I might do as Dad suggested and carry a spare lead to ward off dogs that come too close for comfort after this week. I NEVER leave him unattended.

The first week we had him, we were at Tim Hortons and a random person decidded to have his not quite dog friendly pair of dogs come and say "hi", then blamed Shamas for being defensive when barked at. And blamed me because I had two leads on him, for training purposes(making him uncomfortable) Within the next month there was the Lab three times, who tried to get him from accross the street and was barely contained by the woman and her Gentle leader, a King shephard(my mistake, I didn't know he couldn't pass that close to another dog) a border collie behind a fence, menacing him. Winter hit he did very well at Petsmart, and as soon as warmer temps hit, he had 2 run-ins in a single week.

No wonder he's dog-shy!

wish I could cross main roads..

I didn't actually realise how many dogs weere in the neighbourhood before gtting Shamas. We generally drive out if we want to do anything. We leave the area for parks and rec, malls and shopping. I think a lot of the other dog owners do too. I know the guy across the street does-I never see him walk his pair of dogs. He comes out every morning and puts them in the car. The kids bus to an outside school. If I could get Shamas to cross the streets, I'd walk him out of the area too. It's much nicer on the other side of the main street....just 3 blocks over.

To be honest, that's my main goal with his Bmod. I want him to be able to cross the street, so I can leave the area and walk him in nicer areas. There's a beautiful, peaceful park only about 30 minutes from home that has water fountains set up for dogs and lots of shade trees. Squirrels for him to watch, and paths to walk on. If I could just get there.......

And there's an hour long trail walk, about 20 minutes walk from home, but we have to walk 10 minutes up the main road to get there. Which puts it off-limits to Shamas


Nothing we can drive to has those benefits(parking limitations) so we often end up at Petsmart to walk him
