Hi there, was out for my long run yesterday. I run in a rural area which is beautiful. The next thing a huge (I mean huge) collie comes charging out a garden all teeth and ruff standing on end. Ferocious barking from dog and high pitched shrieking from me (its ok I'm a girl) and it then went back in. I was on the other side of the road of the property and hadn't gone near the boundary so was pretty shocked when it came at me. I come from a farming family and my dear Dad had three collies that did not carry on like that except when commanded to. Any tips for handling this better?This route is lovely and I would love to run it regularly but I really don't want to get a fright like that again. I know there's bound to be a few dog experts out there who can advise me. Happy new year guys!!
