Dog walkers with Flexi-leads...

...You are a pain in the derrière.

You walk on the outside of the footpath with your dog on the inside sniffing the wall/hedge/fence.

You walk one side of a lamppost with the dog on the other, then you have to either, depending on the size of the dog, drag it back or go back around the lamppost.

You walk with your head down in your phone not watching where you are going or what your dog is doing.

You don't see, or care, about other pedestrians who have to stop, get your attention and then have to step over your flexi lead because you've suddenly forgot how to use it.

And when you are on country walks you get the dog and lead wrapped around the kissing gate so we have to wait while you decide to put your phone down/cigarette out before we can get by you.

And finally. other dog walkers don't want your dog sniffing around their dogs bits and wrapping the lead around the other dog owners legs.

Get a frigging grip.

Yep. If the dog can't be trusted off the lead, I don't see how it can be trusted on the end of a 20 foot piece of string.

We have such a lead for our GSD.

Her big problems are deer and other dogs. With deer, she will chase until she drops, and with other dogs, if they start something, she will finish it. So she is always on a lead when out and about.

Never had a problem as a result. If she gets wrapped round a tree or whatever, she's smart enough to unwrap herself. Its pretty impressive watching her backtracking a path in the undergrowth to untangle the lead. All it takes is a bit of retraction when you see traffic coming.

Basically the rant is "pay attention when walking dog" not a flexi lead problem.

I intensely dislike people who let their ugly dangerous looking dogs come up to you and give you nowhere to go on the pavement then say , with great pleasure , "sorry , I didn't know you were scared". They love the power it gives them to wield these animals in front of parents and their children and the long lead just adds to their fun.

One owner let their dog do that to me and I kicked it in the head. Sorry.. I didn't know whether it was going to bite my face off, so I was defending myself. Keep your dog under control saves it getting hurt..
