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.
