    So just now I returned from taking zoey to work the flirt pole at the park here in my neighborhood which is a fairly large park. It has two baseball fields two soccer fields and an open field of grass (where I normally take her to work) and of course two different areas with the monkey bars and such for the kids to play on.
    So I happen to decide to just work her by one of the baseball fields which is somewhat closer to one of the play area for the kids but really not that close. I start working her yes unleashed as I normally do with the flirt pole or fetch but I always make sure there are no other dogs running at large since people bring their dogs to this park all the time and usually it's fairly empty from the AM to the early afternoon which is when I had gone just now. We are at a corner as well so it's more enclosed by the fence and the baseball fence. I see this guy from my neighborhood staring at me from across the field but it's not abnormal for someone to stare when I work zoey on the flirt pole. After about 3 chases on the flirt pole this is what happens...."hey excuse me I don't feel comfortable with you and that dangerous fighting pit bull by me and my kids" oh boy I thought so I yelled at him back "well sir there are dogs allowed in this park and I am not close enough to you for you to feel threatened by my dog which is why I am shouting in the first place" then he replies "well first of all there are leash laws here in city and your breaking the law second of all I have toddlers I don't need a dangerous pit bull putting anyone one of them in any harm" and I replied "your one to talk with always walking your unleashed poodle around the neighborhood and having it unleashed right now! you think because I own a pit bull and you own a poodle that gives you the right to walk it unleashed?" (I am walking closer to him as I am yelling since it's ridiculous how far apart we are) he then tells me "look why don't you just go out to one of the fields over there before I call the cops" so then I said "tell you what since it's hot and I don't have time for your bullshit I am on a schedule (I have to get ready for class after I finish working zoey) I will be the better person and take me and my dog away to the other side this time but next time you have a problem I am not favoring you at all because the only wrong I see coming from me is maybe my dog is unleashed but your just in the wrong in that aspect for walking your poodle around unleashed I don't even walk mine off leash only when it's time to let her play and for the record she is not dangerous or a fighting dog it is you who sounds dangerous yelling across the field to a girl playing with her dog".
    I start to walk away with zoey and he's still yelling at me but I don't even pay attention I was so furious and upset I have never encountered a problem like this before.

    I have been going to this other location where nobody goes to this field so I figured I am just going to have to stick to that place to not deal with any bullshit but I thought I would share because this just ruined my day. I know most of you are going to probably agree that I should have her leashed in public but if you could see the park it is such a large park and I only will take her off leash when there is practically nobody there especially other dogs and if I do happen to see another dog leashed or unleashed I snap her leash back on until they are no longer visible. I just found it so ridiculous that he wants to call the cops on me when he is doing the same thing with his dog just because he obviously is afraid or has a problem with pit bulls and he owns a freaking poodle. I was not going to take any chances I didn't stay to long when I did walk all the way to the other side to finish working her just in case he was going to call the cops because it looked like he was still watching me.

    Sorry to say but LMAO
    After meeting people like that 20 times a month you get used to it.

    Keep her indeed on the leash and get a 15 feet 1 or so for the flirtpole ;)
    That way the troubled man has nothing to scream about hell get a 30 feet 1 LOL.
    I had it before that i also would lose patience but remember the public only sees a woman with a pitbull kind of dog screaming againts a man with children.
    Doesn't suit a woman and def not the way to portrait your self in public.
    Just try to keep your cool when someone starts by al mean just play deaf , ignore them, that way they are always forced to make the first move towards you and if you keep her on a leash you can not be wrong in anyway if dogs are aloud there.
    Rember when she is lose another dog also can come running up and start shit.
    9 out of the 10 people i meet do not have there pets under control.
    But do not let that man chase you of your spot come on.
    Just keep her on the leash and he can not cry :D

    I still think the dog should have been on leash. You were at the park which is a public spot....it doesn't really matter how big the park is or that it is partially fenced. The cops ain't gonna give a shit, and neither will another animal owner that had their dog on a leash if something happened, and your dog decided to hit the other animal. The guy in question sounds like a real hypocrite, and an asshole....however that doesn't change your responsibility as a animal owner to keep your dog properly restrained. You have a "pit bull", do you understand what I am saying? Just another headline waiting to happen if you catch my drift. Don't give anyone a leg to stand on to fuck you over or your animal. I am guessing you live in the city...possibly in an apartment, and you know that more often than not police in the city have a preconceived notion about "Pit bull's"...so they ain't gonna give a shit if your dog was playing or not, all they are gonna see is a "vicious pit bull" of leash roaming the park. Catch my drift?

    It's best to never take a bulldog off it's lead in these circumstances

    i live in the city too and i never let my dog off the leash...he should have his dog on a leash too..if his dog rolls up on you and you have a leash on your dog and something happens it on him...be safe..you sound like you realy care for your dog...keep it leashed..next time your dog might end up in the pound on deathrow or you'll have to pay a big fine not to mention vet bills

    i concur 100% no matter the situation the pit bull will ALWAYS be the scape goat in the eyes of the public, law, and court system.
    accidents are guaranteed to happen...it's just a matter of when.

    This. Pit Bull owners are not Poodle owners, and that argument isn't going to be listened to by anyone, so might as well give up on that one. We're already under the microscope.



    P.S. I'm sure that big doofy spike collar you put on isn't helping the image of your dog any. You seem to have good intentions, but so do a lot of current owners getting bad press. :(

    I try avoid the public with my dogs like the plage. Theres just too many closed minded fuck heads walking this earth, that always want to take a dig, that know nothing about me and not even the slightest about the breed of my dogs.

    I just talked to a guy 4 houses down that bought a Razor's Edge pit a few months ago about him letting his pit run loose all over the place. The guy was clueless about every aspect of pits, hopefully I shed some light on the topic for him, but I doubt it.

    You can't blame the public's reaction, they've been fed BS by the spoon full for close to 20 years now. What you have to do is change their perception by being a responsible owner with a good tempered dog. I've educated a lot, my dog has educated more, but I make no bones about it to them, the dogs are dog aggressive by nature, and the ones that aren't are more of an exception than the rule, most people are genuinely interested on hearing about pits if you do it right.

    Have to agree with everyone else... Guy was an idiot for some of the crap he said, but leashes are a must... What if he had his little yappy poodle come flying out of nowhere?

    I have a 20' long line, but you could probably just use some good rope (I use rope meant to be used in the water) and make it as long as you need, it really doesn't hinder them. That's how I exercise J in public... Better safe than sorry

    Joey, these sorts of people are something you are realy going to have to understand are now a part of your day whenever your out in public with your dog. For every 1 person who actually isnt worried about your dogs presence there will be ten of those people who kick up a fuss like this guy did.

    You are lucky that at this stage your dog has not shown any aggresion towards other dogs yet, but when she does [and chances are she will] you would want to pray that shes leashed and under your control.

    Just ignore anyone like him and walk the other way and find somewhere else to work your dog, and remember you are dealing with idiots so expect them to act like an idiot, thats what idiots do.

    Here's what I know.

    I have a 100% chance of not being eaten by a Great White Shark because I don't swim where they are.

    I have a 100% chance of not getting my dog into an incident at any park since I don't take her there.
