|I was at one of the city parks where I live...first time I took Angel there. It has a few trails there so I thought it'd be perfect. We went around 9am because I knew there wouldn't be very many people around...and I was right. Since Angel & I were the only ones there, I did a little off-the-leash training. When we started back to the car I noticed another person was there with two dogs, both off leash. I put Angel's leash back on, and proceeded to the car.
His dogs were never leashed and they both ran right up to us. It wasn't much of a problem until his dogs started making Angel uncomfortable, and then one of them started snapping at her & growling. So I told the guy to get his dogs away, and he just said "Oh they won't bite!" I moved in between Angel & the other dog (she's almost 3 mos old, where these dogs were older & much bigger) and picked mine up before it could get bad & went to my car.
Did I do the right thing? Also, how can I avoid situations like this in the future?
