But nobody suggested that the landlord shouldn't be allowed to turn out his dog. Only that she be allowed to restrain the dog for a brief period so dog drama doesn't ensue. Chester doesn't like other dogs getting in his bubble and is easily freaked out, so I understand the frustration.
I agree with the no sick/injury deal, and asking to tie up temporarily. I think the training would be a good back-up plan, but it would take some time. You could also approach it with the landlord as, "If me tying him up for a few minutes isn't acceptable, is there another idea you would suggest?"
