My clients who have dangerous dogs.....

Im bloody fed up with clients of mine who own dogs like Pit bulls and staffies and german shepards. I fix PC's and go to many strange homes.

Lately I have been attacked twice by dogs, whom their owner can barely control

One owner tried to control her pitbull and it attacked her. I ****ing hate these types of dogs. I own a dog and I love dogs, but I dont see the point in owning a dog that could potentially kill a human.

I have recently made a new policy that if you own a dog it must be restrained and away or out of sight from me.

Nothing worse than trying to solve a PC problem under the glare of an angry dog, who cant be controlled by its owner.

Its in essence a weapon which is under its own rule.

its dangerous, and If an owner cant control its dog, then I dont belive they should be owning the dog..

Just a little annoyed, had to let of some steam...

Re: My clients who have dangerous dogs.....

I know your thoughts. Take a cat with on each trip. Let the cat loose and they dogs will be busy chasing the cat. Yes you may go through alot of cats but they come cheap anyway.

Re: My clients who have dangerous dogs.....

There are responsible dog owners, and then there are dog owners who don't have a clue.

If I even think there might be the possibility of an issue when someone comes to my house, I put my dogs outside. I usually put them outside anyway, because they will typically either request it or not come in my house. I always have my dogs secured or leashed when they are outside, and I am always "aware" of where they are and what they're doing.

Some owners don't realize that dogs have basic instincts, and they don't need to run around off-leash or be in areas alone with strangers, because no matter how well a dog is trained, there is the potential for unpredictability.

I wish there were more responsible pet owners out there, because it would make my life a lot easier.

Re: My clients who have dangerous dogs.....

I was at the vet with my Dog yesterday. She was having a checkup on her knee surgery progress. A woman brought in 2 jack russells that proceeded to go nuts at other dogs, and she barely did anything for 5-10 minutes while they tried to attack another dog. Pack mentality.

Every dog was going nuts in the surgery. We got ours under control fairly easily by holding her, petting and talking to her. Under control within a couple of minutes. We also moved to another area of the surgery.

The other woman whose dog was being attacked eventually moved with her daughter in tow. By this point her dog was fretting and making a lot of noise as it was stressed out. She just left it, and of course it kept going on the whole time.

Then it started on another dog. She did nothing and the other woman had to move and hold her dog to calm it down. The only time she did anything with her dog was when her mobile phone rang and whilst she was talking she just kept on pulling on the lead. This funnily enough didn't achieve anything.

It's not hard to really sort out a dog. If it's going nuts take it away from the problem and calm it down by talking to and petting it. If it's a trouble off-leash put it on one and watch it always. Keep a grip. Like wise with Ibanezfreaks situation. You have a stranger coming around to the house to fix something take the dog outside, tie it up, isolate it from the area the person needs to work in. It's basic common sense, not that hard at all.

I understand completely mate, and good on you for putting in the policy. It should be common sense, but obviously to many it's not so you need to tell them outright. I see no problem with that what so ever.

You didnt just say that? -5 cool points.

Better thing would be to bring a bat to bash the dogs head in.

Better do that during the day. Bats are nocturnal. I just wanted to let nature run is course. You want to kill another animal with flying rat. +5 for creativity.

In front of dogs no cars yes. Why do you think the dogs chase the cars, to get the cats....
