Why are small dogs allowed to run amok?


The same reason why large dogs and even medium dogs are allowed to run amok.



Less than stellar owners is my final answer.

I figured that was the case Oh and for the record, myself and my dog-savvy friends are always pretty sympathetic and forgiving when we see people actively working with their reactive dogs. I am lucky in that I haven't had a dog who was particularly reactive, but I can imagine it would be embarrassing and frustrating. I just wanted you to know that not everyone is out judging you

You're silly. Large dogs can do no bad. Nor can breeder dogs. Its all those **** small dogs and rescue dogs that are ruining everybody's enjoyment.

Yeah thankfully it seems the experienced good dog people we've run into are completely understanding. We have a local pet shop we frequent and the owners there love him (they have a pom themselves) and have been super patient with his occasional bouts of barking, so that's been a great place to bring him for socialization. Same applies to his puppy classes of course.

It's more in the condo complex where I run into issues. There are a LOT of dogs here, and very narrow walkways with lots of turns, so we just end up running into other dogs unexpectedly a lot. So far no one has ever complained to me thankfully, but I still worry they're thinking "Oh god, why does she have such a horribly behaved little dog?" Actually did over hear one guy we passed unexpectedly on a walk (and Tyrion of course barked at their dog) turn to his friend and say, "It's always these little dogs man..." I wanted to say, "I'm sorry! I'm trying! Please don't judge them all by a still-learning puppy."

Of course I've had my fair share of off-leash dog frustrations as well. We had a (medium sized, for the record ) off-leash dog suddenly run up to us yesterday which was not a good situation considering Tyrion's current reactivity. Thankfully I was able to get him away pretty fast.

If by ruining everybody's enjoyment you mean take all of the money. Then yeah I agree.
