    That is a great idea. I never know how someones dog is gonna react to my dogs when we are out on walks. My dogs are harmless to all creatures man or beast, and wouldn't bite a flea off of their own butt.

    Cute idea, but not always practical. I almost got bitten by the neighbor's ohhh, so friendly dog when I was a child. I've never forgotten it. My cousin's "good ol' boy" suddenly broke loose and attacked a man working in his yard. My cousin recognized that the dog was developing a problem and he dealt with the situation pronto. So no, I don't trust any strange dog, collar or no collar.

    Point well taken! But people who walk their dogs always worry when we cross paths with strangers walking their own dogs. There's always apprehension not knowing if the other dog is going to go ballistic on you or your pet. I think there would be a code of honor amongst dog walkers not to misrepresent their dog's temperament.

    While the idea sounds good at first glance, in our litigious society walking a "dangerous" dog is just asking for a lawsuit. icon_sad.gif

    No one is trying to walk dangerous dogs. Some dogs just need space for whatever reason. A yellow collar or ribbon will just be an alert that the dog has issues; they may be ill, shy, a service dog in training, or any number of various other scenarios and you should pass on by without any interaction.

    And if they are wearing a red collar the owner is acting responsibly and WARNING that the dog is prone to bite and should be avoided. I will respect that and give them their distance. I think it's a good thing.

    I would do the same thing but that doesn't mean people with less common sense would avoid the warning. It is the same problem that can arise if you post "Warning Beware of Dog" on your fenced property. If some idiot climbs the fence and gets bit, the owner is liable because they knew the dog might bite. Fair? No! Right? No! The way the law liens today? Sadly, yes.

    Yep. You are right. People sue for the silliest of reasons.

    I'm not sure that is necessary. When I walk the dogs people very rarely pet the dogs without asking, even kids. I let anybody who wants pet Zoey because she loves all people. Kate is so timid that it scares her when people try to pet her, so I don't let them, or Abby either. Abby isn't timid, she just doesn't like to be petted by strangers or us either, for that matter. When she wants to be petted, she loves it, but it has to be her idea. I haven't run into anybody when I've been walking Molly, but don't think I would let them pet her either. If they would let her sniff their hand first, then pet her, she'd be fine, but most people don't do that and it would scare her since she can't see them.

    It would look like Christmas walking mine.
    Madison in orange - she isn't the least dangerous to people and kids - loves them all to bits. She has never met a dog she did like though and she can be such a snark!
    Dawson in Green. Changing peoples views of German Shepherds one human at a time. Loves kids and every human he has encountered. Great with all dogs too.
    I should wear red some days icon_wink.gif

    I love that - that you should wear red. I think most days, I should too. Oh wait maybe that's just at home. In public, I'm okay. icon_smile.gif

    I think it's a great idea. I just had 2 t-shirts printed up for spring summer walks.

    TRAINING-PLEASE DO NOT APPROACH
    Bright yellow, black print-front and back.

    My dog is highly reactive and simply hates other dogs. I may never be able to change that, however I expect her to be civil in public icon_lol.gif
    It's a work in progress.

    I make it a point not to walk her at the park as parents simply don't watch their children anymore, let alone their dogs.

    I like this coloured leash idea. My dog doesn't like other dogs unless I bring them into our home and introduce her to them, then it is ok. When I walk her, people with their dogs automatically assume that she is dog friendly and make a bee line for us. I constantly have to crisscross the street to avoid other dog walkers.

    I can't stand it when people are at a park with their dog off-leash (at a park where it is prohibited.). We are all supposed to fall all over their dog and have it jump all over us. Not so good when you/your kids are afraid of dogs.
    I think that is very inconsiderate.

    I am wary of any dog unless I get to observe it and see how it reacts to me while it's owner is controlling it on leash. Better to be safe than sorry.

    Very. It's also not so good when their dog makes a bee line for yours, and yours wants to eat it.

    I had one lady last year who would yell "dogs need friends too" and constantly try and cross the street to approach Darcy and I. I told her "she's not dog friendly" and cross away from her.

    I finally had enough. I told Darcy to sit, put her lead at 3 feet, locked it and waited. When "Dip S* and her dog" got close I place my feet and let Darcy bark her head off. Not helpful in the training of Darcy, however we don't have that issue with "her" anymore.

    In our town the laws are very clear. Keep them leashed. If anything happens-anything at all, the "unleashed" owner is 100% at fault. They get the fines and the vet bills.
