Boil your snow before you eat it

Couldn't agree more. Far too many dog owners deliberately remain ignorant of their dog's issues, which results in negative consequences for both the dog and whatever it chooses to bark at/attack.the thing that bothers me the most about dogs is when they bark at me out of nowhere (do i just not get their body language?) and their owner cucks out and says the pup's "never done this before"
either way why the fuck would you bring your dog to a public place (this was outdoor seating at a restaurant, on a sidewalk) if they're not friendly??? especially if it stresses them out.
I love my dog very much, she's a German Shepherd/Pit Bull mix that my brother brought home from the shelter. She's sweet and endearingly clumsy. But I acknowledge that she has issues that I have to address. Namely, she has an anxiety disorder and is very reactive and excitable; even though she isn't aggressive and has never hurt anyone, she has an intimidating bark and tends to act before thinking. On walks I hook her up with a headcollar/Martingale combo (she's managed to slip out of every other set up but this; she's a damn eel), which makes her far more controllable. If she starts barking at, say, another dog, I pull her away and get her to calm down before we resume. I also don't take her to places where there's a lot of people so as not to stress her out. She also has allergies so I don't want her getting exposed to things that'll cause a reaction.
