    @euro A dog is not usually a lethal threat, a polar bear however is NOT usually wanting a chat about the validity of ROW legislation.

    When you say NOT usually, does that mean there’s the possibility that the bear would be willing discus the issue?

    If i absolutely had too, i’d chance swinging a leg at a tiger. You never know. I’ll be running like **** from that bear though.

    I’ve had the odd dog incident on the bike. So far, i’ve yet to be bitten. I dangle my foot out to tease the wee ****, then quickly and firmly push the dogs head away from me and cycle on. Like a kick, buddist ninja idiot style. Try it, it’s very satisfying 😀

    I like dogs though and can’t imagine being frightened in that situation. I’d maybe lash out if i was.

    Oldweg, yes being perfectly serious. Obviously as a dog owner I tend to more relaxed with dogs, but seriously I feel that talking firmly but calmly will sort out 90% of yappers!

    Dog owners making the effort to train their dogs properly would be better though wouldn’t it. I’d rather not get harassed in the first place.

    Exactly grum – which is what I said in my first post.

    This is not to deny the fact that dog owners should keep their animals under control at all times but merely to remind us of the laws of the land.

    You did mention it briefly, but most of what you’ve said sounds a bit like blaming the victim.

    Not sure what to say about the second bit, don’t think I’ve been ‘jumping on’ your posts, I just disagree with you quite often.

    Let you off then, just sounds like….

    Not blaming the victim, just trying to give advice from what works for me. But I do think that the “kick the dog type in the head” type of advice in recent threads is ill-advised – one, for the likely reaction and, two, because its illegal.

    IMO aggressive dogs are best dealt with in a calm, but firm manner.

    It would not work with dogs and it would not work with humans but i would pay good money to see you try with either 😉
