For Dog Owners...

If your dog was mauled and as a result gained severe injuries due to an irresponsible owner what would you do? This kind of thing does seem to be on the rise days!

If they apologised and offered to pay all the vet bills would you accept this and not go to the Police? There's a further twist... There's a chance the treatment may not be successful and a limb may have to be removed if the injury does not heal correctly.

It's not my pet no but just wondered what everyone elses thoughts are. Personally I'd be going to the police and seeking legal action if it was my pooch.

If it was down to the owner, badly trained aggressive hound...…… who probably shouldn't have a pet in the first place then yes, take it all the way.

No brainer. Try prevent the potential for another innocent pooch or kid from being injured or worse.

As someone who was mauled by a dog when I was 4 I’d tell the police. Clearly the dog owner is irresponsible and can’t control his pet. Also. All dogs in public should be on a leash. maybe all dog owners should have to do a course on handling dogs, especially the dodgy dogs.

Up my way I regularly see a woman on a rascal scooter thing and with a big fuck off doberman but in unleashed. If that dog goes off on one how the hell is she going to restrain it?

Oh aye. And pick up yer dog eggs, just cos it’s dark doesn’t give you a pass, there are some real ignorant self centered cnuts out there.

This particular incident I'm referencing occurred in a park but owners should be able to recall their pets. Big dogs should be muzzled if there's a chance they'll attack another animal or person. If they are not in an enclosed area and on a public path as you say they should really be on a lead. There's alot of people out there that should never have pets at all.

You c@nt really label all dogs as the same.
Most dogs are fine...and need more exercise than a leash will allow.

A dog is originally a pack animal,and more likely to bite while its on a leash.

When on a leash....they generally see it as were a team and i will defend if you come too close.
Most(i do say most)dogs are 100% safe off the leash.

Its completely down to how the dog is trained.

Unless there were incredibly mitigating circumstances I'd take it to the police. Let's face it, if the dog mauled a person there would no question.

People know what their dogs are like and have to take responsibility for their temperament. And, as many have said, it is usually the least responsible owners who have the worst behaved dogs. If you let it slide it'll likely happen again.

On the subject of dog poo, yeah it should be picked up, but for any serial complainers out there please remember that female dogs squat to pee. I must get stopped at least a couple of times a month by some self righteous knob telling me I should pick up what my dogs just done when the wee pup has only bent down for a piss... Its a completely different motion too, so you can just tell these are completely clueless busy-bodies. Does my nut in.

Tell the police. Any dog that attacks another will do it again and there's the possibility it would attack people too.

I've got two dogs, very well behaved and friendly. One is massive, 46 kilo Labrador with no fat on him. He's a big happy friendly radge. But randoms don't know that when they see him bolting about chasing balls or sticks, so a degree of common sense has to be used in public. Plenty folk are scared of dogs, which is a shame, but 'don't worry, he won't bite' doesn't really cut if you kid is petrified. I love dogs, had one pretty much my entire life.

And aye, pick up their shites you selfish dicks.

In a park and not even on a lead? Ffs it couldve been a kid! Mates got an American Akita, beautiful big dog, would lick the face of you, absolute great temperament and personality. But he is NEVER off the lead anywhere he goes, the big extension leads are perfect, absolutely no excuse not to be on a lead

The usual, oh I didn't see you crap otherwise I wouldn't have let them off the lead. The victims pet is a white coloured dog that was minding it's own business prior to the attack. They've actually paid for some of the treatment already however this was a pretty horrific incident with blood everywhere. The poor hound that was attacked could lose their leg which is life changing. It won't be the same dog and could lessen it's life span. I feel so sorry for it. It really is a beauty of animal and didn't deserve that to happen at all. I'd be taking it all the way if it was my pet.

It's an enclosed park. It's not that big, about the size of 3 football pitches or maybe just under. Certain breeds need to burn off some energy with a run. Like I said, it should be muzzled if there is a risk factor.

If there is public about, no dog should be off a lead...lots places to take dogs for a run.

There's no where private to take dogs for a run though? Everywhere is public. I use The Mussy Lagoon, Porty Beach,Figgy Park, Newhailes and for shorter walks Rosefield or Brighton Parks. There's a balance to be had and allowing well behaved dogs off leads should be fine.

A few years ago, very early am, I got attacked by 2 dugs up the Pentlands. It’s lucky I was on my bike, literally. If the owner had been Male I’d have ended up in the cells. Open space and no one around yet 2 dogs chase after a cyclist for no reason. I’m beginning to think dogs don’t like me.

What’s a well behaved dog? Pretty much every dog can flip out, they are irrational animals like us.

I do agree, but we are surrounded by countryside, i know its public, but we all know, or should know, where and when we can let dogs run free, which they need. Tbf as well it helps if you have transport

I get chased on my bike by dogs frequently in Leith Links. There was one particular dog a few years ago that would do it every morning and the owner would do nothing. One morning I decided to speed up and encourage the dog to chase me. took it from Mother Aitkens to Mike English with a panting screaming owner lagging far behind. Next time I saw him the dog was on a lead.

I consider my dogs well behaved. They obey any instruction I give them, they're friendly and have never come close to attacking another dog or person. They bark when folk knock on my door, but I consider that good behaviour.

Totally see your perspective but why should my harmless wee mongrel no be allowed to run about of her lead, because some arseholes can't control their dogs? Not having a dig at you at all but it's unfair to class all dogs and their owners the same. I'd very much agree all dog owners should have to attend some form of dog training classes but in reality, are said arseholes going to do that and how could you enforce that?
