I was walking my girl on the beach yesterday. She and so many dogs were having a great time. Apart from one poor dog. I have been so troubled by what I saw and my lack of action. The dog an it’s owner were the other side of the beach yet I could see and hear it all. The dog was having a nice time greeting other dog’s very nicely. However she did not want to go back to her owner - but would she? He was shouting so very aggressively and loudly persistently at her to come to him. She eventually went to him slowly cowering all the way. He then shouted and gestured at her so aggressively by her face you could see she was terrified and was anticipating a beating. It was horrible, I made an obvious point of showing I was watching him. I fear for that dog. I’m troubled that I didn’t go over and help him and the dog in a nice way. It really highlighted how positive training is such an animal welfare issue, it’s not just about teaching a dog to behave. That poor dog’s life is full of violence. I vow to go and offer help I’m some way next time as nicely as I can as my inaction has troubled me all night.
