At the dog park today...had a good time. When I was leaving this woman was having trouble getting in because this "strange" dog was in the "cage". (Entrance and exits are are double gated). He was pushing the gate open to the in "cage" and almost opening the gate to get out altogether.

I asked who the owner was and it was this woman, reading a magazine. When I told her what her dog was doing she said, "Oh, I know. I saw him". Not only was he causing problems for people coming in, he could get OUT!

When I tried to tell her the risk, she just said, "I know". If I had had any balls, I would have told her what an idiot she was, but I didn't. Poor dog.

STUPID PEOPLE! :mad: :mad: :mad:

This is like a time I took sobaka to the dog park, and Sobaka was having fun, when this one dog comes up and starts to bite her neck, and herd her. I thought ok, the dog is just trying to play. Well, the dog would not stop. Sobaka was starting to freak, going behind benches, trying to get away from this dog. The other dog was growling this whole time. I was trying to step in, but that was no good. Finally, I said "who's dog is this?" Some lady said, "Oh, it's mine", so calmly, I wanted to slap her...(not really, but you get the point) So I said something to the extent of "you dog's not being nice". She grabbed the collar of her dog, and said to it "well, I guess they just don't want to play with you." She left a few minutes earlier, and as she walked out, she gave me a look.

I'm sorry, but playing involves a changing of sides. The pray becomes predator etc. I wasn't very happy...

Wow. You probably handled the situation better than I would have-- I don't have a lot of tolerance for idiots, and even less for idiots who are causing trouble for other people and putting their dogs in potential danger.

Well, in addition to a clueless owner, that sounds like a defective gate.
The gate does not latch but the tension is usually better, making it more difficult for a dog to open. I will try to remember to call the city.

And yes Winnie, it was a very smart dog. I really wish I had said something but I could tell it would have had no effect...she was more interested in her magazine than her dog.
