Dog owners

A few things other than yapping.

1. The hanging bags of **** on trees thing. It's been mentioned before but, honestly, picking it up is the worst bit. Once it's bagged it's relatively harmless as long as you don't attempt to play cricket with it. Put it in a bin you lazy, scuzzy twart.
2. If you can't control 5 dogs, either don't have 5 dogs or don't walk them all at the same time. If your 5 dogs see my 1 dog, all go crackers, and drag you on your arse whilst trying to give chase, that isn't my problem. If you look at me like it is my fault, I will look at you like the ****ing idiot you are.
3. If your stupid thick as mince dog is in the habit of charging at other dogs like a lunatic from 50 yards away, shouting "he's really friendly mate" is no help as border collies don't speak English. When my dog sees your dog running, she will assess the situation and the fight or flight thing kicks in. If your dog then starts yapping in her face or sticking its nose up her arse, she will bare her teeth. If your dog persists, she will probably give it a nip. (Collies bred from farm stock love a nip and you can mostly train them not to, but not when they think they are being attacked.) If your stupid thick as mince dog does the same thing to something really powerful and/or aggressive, it will probably get ripped to pieces.
4. It is your responsibility to control your dog. If you are ****ing about on your phone, you are not controlling your dog. If your dog charges after a cat and goes under someone's car, that is your fault. It will still be a horrific experience for the driver, even though he is blameless. Better all round if the dog doesn't get run over.

Annual breed-based dog licence is the only way forward.
Ranging from 100 to 1000 quid/euros a year.


No licence? They get put down with a bolt gun there and then.


And the dog gets put up for adoption.

The concept of "owning" a living thing. Very odd. They're the custodians or something and as such they should be more responsible.

But then sensible people get penalised. I know a man who has 4 dogs, a border collie, a lurcher, a bitsa, and a jack russell. The Jack Russell was a rescue dog and is absolutely tapped. It will fight anything so it is always muzzled and on a lead whenever there is another dog within about 10 miles. The rest behave impeccably. He would probably end up paying more than the woman with 5 coiffured pedigree afghans that she cannot control.

People need to stop being arses.

Great post...and I'm a Border Collie owner!

I only ever take my dog for a walk very early or very late. She used to be great with other dogs, but since her buddy died, she's become a bit grumpy, so I take her out when the parks are empty.

If she's done a crap, I'll always pick it up..using a torch to find it, if necessary. I always bin it!

If someone has gone to the trouble of picking crap up in a bag, then why can't they walk a bit further before binning it?
If someone has an unruly dog, either muzzle it and keep it on the lead, or take it out when no-one else is around.

This hanging of **** bags on the trees. It's relatively new and I've only noticed it recently.
Might as well just leave it (the **** on the floor).

You've got to be an utter c*** to bag dog****
and then leave it like that.

If I catch the woman who's alledgely
leaving labrador turds at the car park
over the road from mine, where all
responsible dog owners go but clear up,
I'm gonna step in it and smear it up the
back of her legs.

If you walk in the same areas you get to know the dogs and therefore which dogs can be approached and which can't, which dogs can have fun running and chasing each other and which can't, and which grumpy arse owners are likely to glare as you walk by them with a dog that wants to play but their dogs are as grumpy as them and just want to bark and snarl.

and if it is an extending lead, which they all seem to be nowadays, keep it short in the presence of other pedestrians. Your dog does not understand that the strange human, who is not being controlled by a dog, will be tripped up if he goes the opposite side from you.

Even worse, the dog is still on the road whilst the owner is in front on the pavement. Just yesterday I saw that
