He Wouldn’t Put a Leash on His Dog After It Ran After Another Man on The Beach but Now He’s Wondering if He Did Wrong

A man recently questioned if he messed up by not recalling his dog that was annoying a fisherman at the seaside. Looking back, he feels he could have managed the situation more effectively.

He Took His Dog to The Beach

The man owns a 12-pound chihuahua mix. One day he wanted to take the dog to the beach, and since many beaches don’t allow dogs, the man went to one of the beaches that allowed dogs off-leash.

The man’s dog loves toys and has a particular toy that looks like a fishing rod. It is essentially a stick with a string at the end and a small toy tied to the end of that. The dog is obsessed with and loves chasing it around. 

He Went With a Friend

The man went to the beach with a friend. She also had a dog, which was much bigger, around 50 lbs. This dog had a similar toy that looked like a fishing rod. So, there they were, at the beach with both dogs playing with their toys and doing dog stuff.

Suddenly the two dogs notice a man fishing. “Now, there are lots of other non-dog beaches around, and some that even border this beach, but this guy decides this beach is the best for swinging a stick around to catch fish,” the man said.

His friend quickly leashes her dog because she is worried it will chase after the man fishing, but the man’s dog gets too excited and runs off before he has a chance to leash it.

The dog happily runs over to the man and tries to play with his fishing rod. Worried, the fisherman holds the fishing rod back and is kind of taken aback by the little dog barking at him to cast the rod. 

The Fisherman Got Angry

The owner runs over and tries to recall his dog, but the man fishing is angry and yells that he needs to restrain his dog. 

“It’s at an off-leash dog beach! Why are you fishing here when you can do that in a dog-free area?” the man said. 

They Argued a Bit

The fisherman said that it is a free country, that he can do whatever he wants, and that the man should control his dog. 

At this point, the man gets defensive, so he decides to stand his ground and refuses to leash his dog.

Then They Both Left

The fisherman is angry but ends up leaving in frustration.

As the owner left the beach, he thought about what had happened. He felt that even though he thought the fisherman was unreasonable, he, himself, could have handled the situation better.

He Asked the Reddit Community if He Was in The Wrong

They were pretty clear in their opinion. They felt that the man should have been more responsible.

People Responded

One user said, “It is your responsibility to make sure your dog is under control at all times. The reason your friend with the pittie controlled her dog is that she knew this. You would probably be complaining if the fisherman punted your dog into the water if it attacked him.” 

Another user said, “It’s called responsible pet ownership. Even in an off-leash area, your dog should not be allowed to run up to a stranger and start barking any more than a human would be allowed to do the same.”
