I am writing because my husband and I need help support and advice as to a very uncomfortable and anxiety provoking situation. We were friends with our neighbors for about a year. They live two houses down. During our friendship we brought home a beautiful german shepherd puppy. They have a dog and our puppy and their dog played together for the first year of our puppy's life. He is extremely fond of their dog. We would often walk our dogs together on our country road. A dreadful situation arose which caused my husband and I to terminate the friendship. After we parted ways we would sometimes pass each other on the road. At that time both dogs wore a radio collar. My husband and I did not have a problem with the dogs running toward each other to greet. It seemed to be ok for the first few times and went without incident nor did the encounter last long. Then one day as our dog ran to greet his dog he kicked our dog in the face to prevent him from reaching her. It was terrible. Our dog has never been aggressive to anyone or another dog. He is good in public and is well trained. But now when this man walks passed our house our dog goes crazy! We are extremely worried that all training has gone out the window where this man is concerned. Our trainer says this is going to be a tough one to overcome because he was so aggressive to our dog and physically hurt him. We have reported this man to the police at least seven times for what he did that day as well as standing in front of our house making believe he is tying his shoes etc., just so our dog will go ballistic. We are living like prisoners in our own home trying to protect our dog from any further encounters. I am not sure what else to do at this point. But I am glad that I found this group. This is such a sad situation for us but also for our dog as well as his dog.
