People need to control their animals. Dogs that big can hurt you easily even on accident or from aggressive friendliness.

I had a Chow and he was not friendly. I made sure to keep him under control, because that dog would eat your spleen no question. But I knew that and controlled him properly.

I was serving a suboena at a witnesses home. Knocked on the door and a 6 or 7 y.o. boy opens the door followed by the sound of nails sliding across the wood floor. The young Rottie stops with its head about an inch away from my crotch and stands there stiff legged. The lady of he house comes up and pulls its head away, smiles at me and says, "That silly dog!" The only thing I could say was, "Yup. Silly."

I was delivering pizza in college. Came up and parked in a driveway. Two dobermans came around from behind the house and stood outside my car door. Very calm and quiet.

I finally decide to risk it and get out. They follow me to the front door - one on my left and one on my right, each about two ft behind my legs.

Lady opens the door and looks at the dogs and they both turn and go back to the back yard again. Never a bark or noise.

I felt sure that had she said something in particular they would have eaten me.


I do know that they can be nice dogs too. Had a friend with a really sweet dobby...

I have a fairly long driveway. I once came home to a box about halfway down it right in the middle. UPS driver wrote on it "Neighbors dogs out". They are two Rottweilers that are friendly and stay in their yard. He dumped and ran. No one else has ever had an issue and I get a ton of packages.

I have a co-worker who is deathly afraid of dogs and refuses to deliver to homes with dogs visible. Perhaps the same thing with your UPS driver.

This morning I was making a delivery to a house. The owner and his dog were on the porch. The dog comes bounding out and--just like the Rottweiler from yesterday--starts trying to tackle me. The owner doesn't even react even though he's watching me walk up. I got so pissed I just dropped the package in his driveway and walked away. The owner called after me, "Oh, he's just trying to be friendly." Well that's great, you sonovabitch, but your dog is trying to knock me down while I'm carrying shit. Fuck you.

This afternoon I was making a delivery to a house that isn't on my usual route. I pulled into the driveway and stopped at the garage. There was a large, shaggy dog sitting by the front door barking its head off at me. Since it wasn't moving from the front door and the gate to the property had been left open, I figured the dog wasn't going to be aggressive. I was wrong. I didn't get bitten but the dog certainly didn't appreciate that I seemed to stay longer than it felt was warranted.

My wife refers to them (and their like) as "kicking dogs", as in that is what you have to do, usually, to keep a loose one from biting your ankles. I was bit by one once, while on a walk and the dog was running free (belonged to a roofer who was working on the house I was passing). We had a long talk about letting such a dog run free, and about the current rabies vaccinations, etc., because it did break my skin through my socks. Some of them can be nasty little suckers. I hardly saw it coming because he ran up so fast and just bit before I knew it. Never showed any aggressive signs like snarling.

only bite i've ever gotten was from a very small dog.

I'm still scared of the big ones - cause a bite from one of them is going to do a lot more damage.

If I don't know a dog, I don't deal with it. Just smile and wave, keep on walking.

I love the people with the little yippie 15lb ankle biters, who think their dog is the cutest thing on 4 legs. When you ask them to get the dog, they respond something like, "What are you afraid of a little dog?" My usual response is "No, but I am worried about getting wrapped up in their leash and falling down your steps". They have a deer in the headlights look, "Oh, I didn't think of that..."

Even a 15lb dog can rip a $50 pair of pants.

I love dogs, but I don't get paid to deal with them. In fact, I can get suspended for walking into a yard with an unleashed dog...

I apologize now...

My neighbor used to have a huge rottie named bear. Also super friendly. He’d walk between your legs and basically try to knock you down. Probably for easier licking access lol...

Actual aggressive big dogs I hate, as well as their owners. I gave up riding my bike because of dogs and their moron owners. I almost had to shoot a dog in front of two kids because the asshole father couldn’t control it.

I got into a car once to drive it into the shop and felt something warm and wet in my ear. I turned to see a Doberman Pinscher licking me. Lot's wife had nothing on me at that moment. Big Grin I'm glad the dog was friendly, but the owner, who had said nothing about having a dog in the car, should have been considerate enough to tell me.

I have always exerted control over my dogs, as I certainly didn’t want any kind of lawsuit from them going off on delivery personnel. Of course, most of mine were the usual, barking, growling, stay off my property you intruder! Then there was the exception...one big, goofy german Shepherd, who just loved everybody. I KNEW he was not ever going cause an issue, so when the next delivery guy showed and I was home I explained my case, and introduced the dog to him. All parties happy, doggie got treats, and looked forward to a delivery. He would actually run up to the truck, and jump in the open door, and greet the driver happily. But I took the time to explain, I didn’t just let him loose. Sadly, he’s passed on, but I miss him and his goofy self. The one I have now, is the ‘how dare you intrude on my turf’ type again. So, no chance I’m gonna let him loose. If I have a delivery scheduled, he stays inside, or I watch him like a hawk just in case. We live in the country, so luckily long driveway, and I can see and hear approaching vehicles fairly quickly before they actually show up at the door.

I've had many dogs over the years, including a Rotty. He was probably one of the sweetest dogs I've owned. I had a Samoyed that was a great dog but was very protective of the kids. I couldn't even swat one of them without her growling at me.

The only bite dog I've ever owned is the one I own now. She's half dachshund and half pit bull, and she WILL bite. Super strong and aggressive too. It takes two or three people just to cut her toenails.

I have to lock her in the bedroom when we have company. The only reason I've kept her is because she is such a great watchdog and I live way out in the country.




Here's to the sunny slopes of long ago.

I had to deliver a package to the Rottweiler's house again. This time, the owner rushed out of her house just as the dog leapt up onto the door and tried to climb inside with me. She confirmed that other service workers give the dog treats and he expects them. I felt so sorry for her, as she weighed about the same as the dog and he was dragging her around the truck after me.

I was a deputy and we had fleet vehicles. I was leaving for work one morning about 0300. As I was driving down the road I looked to the right and there was a cat about 6" from my face looking at me. Damn near put the car in a ditch.
