If they don't know that it's going on they can't choose to stop it.
This. I would want to know if he were my dog.....

I would definitely say something to whoever I saw next with the dog. Bull breeds tolerate a lot and the dog might not have been really bothered by it... but it's still not necessary for her to treat someone else's dog like that.

They would never walk my dog again.
They would never walk again.

Okay, that might be extreme. But I would absolutely want to know if anything was going on with my walker.

Yeah, I have this horrible vision of someone beating Uncle Fred with a leash. I might be moved to violence, but I sure would like to know if it happened.

Hitting a dog in the face like that is a good way to cause even the mildest tempered dog to become reactive.

Let the owners know somehow. I'd be incredibly grateful if it were my dog.

No excuse to hit a dog in the face for pulling on the leash. I prefer leash taps on the body to collar jerking, but if I was hiring someone to walk my dog, I'd want them to WALK it and not smack it around. I'd say something too.

IMO, that is beyond bad training, it's abuse. I have said something in the past in similar situations and I'd say something again, I wouldn't be able to help myself.

I've seen eyes that needed removed from leash hits to keep from pulling. Not good.

I'd bet if you yelled from the window, "Hey you! Stop beating that dog!" you would be the least of that girl's problems. lol

If it were just taps on the back or hindquarters I wouldn't really have an issue. If Yoshi gets focused in on something I'll tap her with my foot to grab her attention. But once you start really throwing force behind it and you are hitting the face I think you've gone too far.

It doesn't sound like out right abuse. But it sounds like a VERY badly educated dog walker. I'd tell the owners in a heartbeat. I probably would have yelled out of my window at her too. I mean what's the worse she would do? Come hit me with the leash?
