We have a lot of people who don't pick up after their dogs. My neighbour is awful for not picking up after her cat and she has been told, especially when my oldest accidentally rolled in it playing on our front lawn and I yelled at the neighbour for it. Other than the refusal to clean up the poop I haven't seen any abuse of animals but would speak up about it for sure!

I just have a REALLY big mouth when it comes to animals.

emoticon Kitty. I don't see much of it where I live either. I have seen people not pick up after their dog when we have been on trips, but haven't said anything. I have become more tolerant in my old age, but I know I would intervene if I saw a dog in danger.
You are just awesome Kitty !!!!!

If you haven't failed, you haven't lived !

Laugh, and the world laughs with you !!

Wow! Living where we do (and how we do) I just don't see these things happen. When we do go places where other people have their dogs, everyone is calm and well mannered. (People and dogs) However, if I saw a kid kicking an animal of ANY kind, I would hate to be that kid!!!!

Do you favor diplomacy or directness with other dog owners?

I tend to be very direct. If I see just basic rude behavior (not picking up after a dog), I tend to get quite verbal and make certain that others in the area are aware of the owner's behavior. If I see a situation that I know is potentially harmful (someone yanking on a choke collar is common in my area), I will intervene verbally and offer suggestions (Yes, I get told to mind my own business but sometimes the owner will actually listen). When I see a truly harmful situation (a kid kicking a puppy), I have called the police and physically intervened. I guess I'm more tolerant of dogs than most people.
