hey all excuse the moan, but went out for a lunchtime run and out in the wilds of South East Kent came across a man and his yappy shoe brush of a dog. he made no attempt to put it on a lead. as I run past the dog chases after me snapping its jaws at my heels. I stopped and shouted out it to go away. he took exception that I had the audacity to shout at his dog ! taking his point on board I shouted at him and told him to put his F*******g dog on it lead. It amazes me that his dog attacked me and he sees me at fault !!
on reflection I did not handle this matter well ! and it took 2 added two mins to my run - gutted !!
wonder if anyone has any other strategies for dealing with dogs whilst out running ?
Hope you are all well
