Where I live, just walking your dog on the street is a challenge. Three times Ricky was rushed by dogs from stupid owners who thought their dog was fine off the leash, in a town that requires dogs on leashes. One time the stupid owner told me to keep my dog off 'their' street.We often have up to 30 dogs ( other times very few). But no one sits around unless they are disabled. And everyone keeps a close eye on the dogs. Except for a few naive newbies who the longtimers then do their best to educate.
My dog is pretty bulletproof, but I would definitely be keeping an eye on the others.
