    I have the same problem where I live, almost every property has dogs. My mare isn't afraid of the loose ones, she's like soileddove's, she'll take off after them. Most dogs are brave cowards and will run off when chased. I also have long reins that can be used to whip the dogs. The mace idea is great though, I may try it. I do that for everything she's afraid of, point your horse at it and get her to chase the dog, practise on ground if need be. My girl still chases bicycles, am still working on getting her to stop, folks on bikes try not to come on my street.

    It makes me so sad that irresponsible people own these big, powerful dogs and allow them to become aggressive. I think if the dog is a danger to any living, domesticated creature it is aggressive. I can't stand it when people try to say a dog is not aggressive when it will rip apart another dog or a horse just because it's friendly to people. If it's going to be a danger to other people's pets then it shouldn't be around them. PERIOD.

    Its 100% the person's fault for getting that sort of dog they can't train/control, for allowing it to become aggressive and then allowing it off their property to wreck havoc. Its even more sad because some of these dogs cannot be safely rehabilitated :(

    People suck. I carry a crop when I ride all of the time and I would have no problem smacking a dog with it, kicking it with my boot or turning the horse on it. My safety and my horse's safety is the most important thing.

So it isn't all about training and it isn't fair to keep a dog tied up or caged all it's life. That just isn't feasible especially if you live in the country that isn't why you got a dog.
    I had a dog that for some reason he didn't like people weraing uniforms. The 1st time he bit someone I wrote it off as a fluke as the guy stepped over him while he was sleeping. The second time I was taking with a mechanic and he turned to leave and the dog bit him with out any warning and quickly. That dog was put down
    You see, my dog LOVES people in uniform. When some Reserve Forces people walked by her after a parade, she started whining, trying to go see them haha.

    But my aunt owned a naturally aggressive German Sheppard. They tryed there hardest to keep her put of trouble, and they did. They lived on a large piece of property in the country so there luckily wasn't many people around generally. They also had there kids trained on how to deal with the dog, and trained the dog to leave the kids alone. The one thing I know for sure is if she had attacked someone, or became to dangerous, they would have had her put down. They actully put her down when she was 12. She was loosing either her sight or her hearing, and was becoming more aggressive, so they made the call and had her put down.

    I can't imagine wanting to have an agressive dog around these days. Everyone is so sue happy, all it takes is one nip and you get sued, even on your own property, even if the person was not supposed to be on the property.
    I had a friend who's dog bit an intruder and the intruder sued the dog owner and WON.....
    I work for a vet, train and show dog professionally and agressive dogs of any breed, whether big or small are dangerous. I have had little dogs bite me, but the worse are the big dogs that have to come in triple muzzled, growling and snarling. The owners excuse is" he loves our family" so we love him.
    I love hearing " my dog is protective of me" and then it will bite and growl and attack other people in the family, other dogs or animals.
    My daughter's horse was attacked by the neighbors pitbull mixes in her own yard, she has finally healed, but it took along time. The owners of the dogs did nothing.
    I am very opinionated about biting dogs, for any reason, unless they are police dogs. As far as I am concerned, no dog should bite a human being for any reason, ever. A dog can sufficiently bark to warn off a threat, but the average homeowner should not own aggressive dogs, somebody someday will get bit or attacked. Hopefully not a child.
    And yes, I have put down aggressive dogs and have suggested it to people who own aggressive dogs.

    I think it was the best idea to put our dog down. I didnt suggest it but I know know it was the right choice. Everyone has so many different opinions and after being called a closed minded fool I was starting ti have different ideas on weather it was a good idea to put it down. But wyominggrandmas post made me think otherwise .

    We've had a number of dogs over the years, but only one was human agressive. We didn't realize how aggressive he had gotten until he bit a friend for no reason whatsoever. We'd had him for several years before that happened, but didn't hesitate to put him down.

    We had another dog that suddenly decided she wanted our other dogs dead and began attacking them every time she got the chance. Because our local shelter charges to bring dogs in, we just put her down ourselves.

    We live way out in the country and really can't be without a dog to give warning that someone or something is amiss outside. However, barking at someone/something is a far cry from biting or attacking. Our backyard is fenced, and our dogs are not allowed to wander around unsupervised outside of the fence. We don't want them chasing the chickens, goats or the horses...not to mention the neighbor's cattle.

    In our opinion, once a dog starts attacking the farm animals, it has to be put down. Training is something that should be done from puppyhood, and our dogs are well behaved, but even so, they could suddenly forget all their training and turn on the livestock, causing a great deal of suffering and expense. They would have to be put down immediately - we couldn't afford to take a chance that it won't happen again.

    Im still and always will %100 be for Eunthanizing an agressive dog! Im not saying there may not be good somewhere in the dog, but there is too much bad that is too far gone to be ignored. An aggressive dog is a liabilitey! And In my eyes one bite, is one to many! And it should be reconized long before this accident occured!

    And thankyou!! Everyone who is posting polite but still in a matter of fact way! Were starting to express opinoins without jumping down someones throat saying "Ohmigod you axe murder!" I'm quite fine with people expressing opinions, and your more than welcome to have your own personal veiws. Although please just stick to polite and mature posts!!
