I have to say, as a dog lover and life time owner, there does seem to be a new breed of dog owner who just has no sense. In joint use areas, put your dog on a close leash!

Also depends on where you are. The intellectually challenged seem to always have the most dangerous breeds and always off the leash when you have a young kid pootling about in public places. They get a power trip sensing the fear they generate in others. Dog ownership and breeding needs much better regulation in the UK imo.

It's the German Shepherds you have to watch out for. Mine lures them in with offers of free belly rubs before attacking them.

No such thing - any dog can be safe or dangerous based on its training and how it is treated. This kind of thinking results in the needless deaths of hundreds of perfectly safe dogs every year purely based on their looks (not even their parentage), and needs to be stopped.

No such thing as a bad dog, just bad owners.

That said, I think it's the legs going round that makes some dogs give chase! One of mine is part Staffy terrier and loves chasing literally anything that moves - thankfully his recall is good so he only gets a couple of metres. The other couldn't give a damn!
