Stacey - I didn't ask, "about "dealing" with a dog in public" as an open question for discussion. But, your ego once again over rode your reading comprehension.
I asked a very specific question to the OP about her dog:
Now going forward you know for a fact that you can not physically control that male dog when it goes into defence mode. So how are you going to deal with him in public now?[/quote]
Not surprisingly, you try to hi-jack the thread and make it about yourself.
