Why are small dogs allowed to run amok?
Seriously, Why? Why are people less inclined to step up to the plate and do serious work with their smaller/tiny dogs?
I know smaller dogs in the hands of competent owners of course - and they are wonderful. But the vast majority of yorkies, chihuahuas, terriers, and any sort of small dog in general have bad manners, are super reactive, snappy, annoying, and just PITA's across the board.
This afternoon we were walking and this offleash terrier ran up to us and started barking it's head off and growling - this is completely out of the blue and unprovoked. Katalin just stands there and he keeps barking and snapping - Katalin barks back; this is the only sign of her irritation/displeasure - other dogs I know may have been inclined to put a hole in the antagonizing party by that stage. The terrier's human starts growling herself -
"HEY! My dog is friendly! Yours needs to be muzzled!"
......I tell her politely to please get her dog away from us NOW. She says he's friendly once more - I ask if she considers it friendly to violently harass passerby's trying to get on with their day. I add that she'd better keep her dog restrained until her control of it is taken to a higher level - otherwise other dogs he tries to pull this kinda sh!t on may not be so forgiving.
She gets him on leash promptly and we walk on.
Whatever my brother gets - it will NOT be allowed to turn into one of those tiny terrors, UGH.
Feudin' and fightin' and a-fussin,'
That's all that's goin' on with us'n!
We are such neighborly people, peaceful and sweet!
All except when we happen to meet.
