umm, ya probably should have said something right then and there.something like this maybe," What the fuck, if keep your god damn dog on a leash" pending on the severity of the bite depends on how fucked up the dog gets.

I yelled something like "your dog fucking bit me" but they couldn't hear me over the cries of their infant.

Ouch, did it break the skin? Did the dog have it's shots? In our town if your dog/cat bites someone and you can't prove that it had shots they kill it or quarantine it for 6 months!

It would have been a textbook example of passive aggressive behavior, had she not said something to the person at the time (avoiding confrontation is passive aggressive behavior, and complaining about the incident later adds to it). Since we now know that she did in fact confront the person, albeit with no success, then, yeah it's not really passive aggressive.

But, we didn't know that at the time of my post, now did we macherry?

Wow... six months? That's like jail for four dog years. Unlike humans (well, this is debatable too) I doubt this teaches the dog anything.

So why didn't you walk over there after your partner was done and have a conversation with the group?

Sure teaches the owner something!

The dog/cat has to be boarded or has to be quarantined in a cage in the owner's house. The owner is subject to un-announced inspections to ensure compliance.

Probably because the dog kept growling at me the whole time I was belaying... I don't think I was in the mood/mindset to go in for another bite.

I don't think I could have let the dog's owners happily ignore its behavior.

Back when i was 20 and doing some labour work.. a cross breed ankle biter thing was plodding along. I bent down to give it a stroke and the fucker bit me. I jabbed it in the face with the but end of a sledge hammer but the game little fucker went for me again. Next visual was the little rat flying 6 foot through the air. My brother had ran over and booted the fucker in the ribs.

I felt a bit sorry for the dog, but it was so damn funny how far it flew. Maybe it learned not to bite people.. that is if it didn't die of internal bleeding.

Inconsiderate people deserve inconsiderate actions unfortunately, IMO.

I'm not an advocate of animal cruelty at all, but a dog that bites me is as good as kicked. I don't usually belay with my feet ;)

I would assume the owner would notice if she had started throwing rocks at it, which is what I would have done with a dog if it didn't stop growling at me.

My partner was bitten by an unleashed dog a the Gunks while its owners were both at the first belay of a 2 pitch climb. It was a Jack Russell, so we kind of thought - how much fuss can we really make? We are a 100 times bigger than the poor little dog? The bite went through the sandle and broke the skin. My partner had his hands full of rope and gear and couldn't brush it off. He kicked a bit, but it just held on to his foot and enjoyed the ride! The owners sort of shouted down at it wthout much enthusiasm and as if it were a bit of a joke. We moved to another climb, as the dog wasn't moving and still looked hungry. We would have felt like we were being petty complaining about such a small dog, so we just moved. Next time I'll try some rocks.

Dog bites, all bets are off. Little dog gets the punt, big dog probably sees my ass as I run away, but if I can't than ANYTHING in my power to disable it.

I don't mind dogs at the crag, in fact I like it when they are well behaved. I have my own BIG ol' mutt and I keep him on a leash or run when at the crag AND off the trail because other people don't know that he's nice so it doesn't matter. He doesn't need the lead, but other people might.

Big dogs are usually the most friendly dogs. I don't know why, but it seems like big dogs know they are big, and therefore aren't afraid of you while smaller dogs tend to be defensive and sometimes downright aggressive. It's pretty similar to "small guy syndrome" where the smallest guy at the bar feels the need to prove you shouldn't mess with him..while the huge defensive lineman across the room is content to kick back some beers with you and share a few laughs.

Then again, I'm no dog whisperer, that's just my experience with small dogs vs large dogs--as a rule of thumb, large dogs love to be loved. Of course, I'm sure there are a few aberrations.

I don't have a problem with dogs--so long as they don't have a problem with me.
