Protecting Yourself and Your Dog During a Walk

Are you fearful or anxious about off-leash dogs approaching you and your dog when you're out for a walk?  This article--"6 Ways to Thwart an Off-Leash Dog Rushing You and Your Dog"--shared on Dogster.com's "Ask a Trainer" column gives some tips on thwarting off leash dogs who invade your space while you are walking. 

Here's an excerpt to get you started:


When you encounter an off-leash dog, keep these things in mind:

  • Know that it is always okay to protect your dog: Most urban and suburban environments have leash laws, and if your dog is on a leash you are right in keeping your dog safe. You are also completely within your rights to report off-leash dogs to your local authorities. 
  • Evaluate the situation to see if the owner is nearby: If he is, tell him to call his dog. Many people will respond by telling you that their dog is “friendly,” but regardless of their dog’s behavior, if their dog is not under their control and is upsetting you or your dog, it is a problem. 
  • Remember, you can choose whether to let that dog meet your dog.

So, how can you stop a dog that’s charging you? There are several different strategies, and I choose the method I think will work best for each individual situation.
