Angry Ugh...

So some things have been totally annoying me lately and I need a vent!!

I take the dogs out about 3 times a day or sometimes 2 as we have a large enclosed garden so they get to run about in that all day as much as they want, I love walkies time as its so enjoyable seeing how happy they are to be out exploring. I love meeting people with their doggies as my fukids love running around daft with all dogs.

But latelyyyyyy something's been getting on my nerves Pablo usually gets attention as he's a tiny guy but now I've got Neeva too I get stopped about 15 times when I'm out with them which is fair enough but sometimes it's so annoying as I just want to go a peaceful walk without having to stop all the time most of the time I do like chatting to people about them but sometimes I just want to walk. I do walk them in fields and nature walks but the route to them places is through a public park so it's just mental. Pablo is terrified of strangers unless you've got a dog then he'll be your friend its a bit weird lol! But in general he's really scared especially of kids as they scream and run at him and no matter how many times I tell them "no no he's scared don't touch him" they still do it which is exhausting. He even growled and snapped at a kid who after repeated warnings by me came at him from behind when I was walking away as I was getting annoyed. Neeva loves everything and everyone soon as she sees someone she's trying to run over to get her belly rubbed which leads me to my next rant people for some reason just scoop her up without asking or any warning I love people being super nice to my dogs but I would never pick up someone's dog, I'll tell them to put her down as she's too small and wriggly and a woman last night was like no no she loves me!

I'm nearing my wits end
Anyone else deal with this and any tips? I know if I was walking a Rottweiler people wouldn't constantly be trying to pick it up or run and scream at it so it should be the same for chi's!!

Haha! You said it! People would not do this if you had any large breed dog for that matter. I will be honest, it won't likely change any time soon. Chi's in general attract loads of attention. BUT! In my experience the second I got long coats, it got worse. And people love the tinies. I once had Ava on the counter during check out at a pet store, the cashier leaned into her and Ava bit her nose :flushed:! It happened so fast I didn't have a chance to react. Some people are nice and will ask to pet the dogs ( which is always a no) but others just take it upon themselves. Unfortunately Ava isn't as friendly as she was as a pup ( unless she knows you ). But usually I try to have treats with me to give to folks who want to say hi.

this is exactly the same as when I walk mills! its unbelievable, I agree its nice to chat about them etc but sometimes it is nice to have a peaceful walk. millie is really happy to meet new people she doesn't get scared but still it doesn't mean strangers should pick her up. once I was walking up to the shop and a woman that was waiting at a bus stop just picked her up and was like i can watch her whilst you go in the shop i was like no thankyou! she must of thought i was crazy to leave my baby with a stranger!
personally i just go for the ''she needs to get back for her tea now so we will have to be quick!'' and usually they let us go haha!

Oh it annoys me so much meoshia!! Haha no wonder Ava gave her a nip I don't blame her you don't out your face down to an unknown dog it's so daft!! Yes I defiantly get more attention with Neeva as she's a tiny fluff ball! I love when people ask if they can pet them its respectful! But oh I don't know I might start saying "no don't touch them they recently killed a lion they're crazy"

I bet that woman would've done the off with mills lol!! I just don't get it even if I met a tiny chi I would never in a million years go and scoop it up it's mind boggling to me! Pablo will stand and bark so people don't scopp him up which is good but Neeva wants hugs and kisses from everyone so trying to convince someone not yo pick her up is a nightmare ha!!

I think it just goes with the territory! People are just amazed at these little creatures and want to love on them. Corona brings it on herself that she loves everyone and everything so she tries to greet everyone as much as they want to see her. But I haven't had to many people just pick her up without asking, so that's good! In a way I can see the fascination. I am more aware now, but prior to Corona, I had never really witnessed too many <4 pound dogs out and about. It's pretty dang cute when you see one out for a walk. But I do agree it's rude to approach when asked not to and to just pick up is not acceptable. I also like chatting with people about Corona, but yeah, sometimes a nice peaceful, undisturbed walk would be nice. I enjoy the compliments, but there are always those few who seem to know the chi encyclopedia, or the "well my aunt, neighbor, gramdma, whoever, has a smaller dog than that" like its a contest and they're better than me. I guess it's actually comical. I get where you're coming from, but I have just accepted when I take Corona out, prepare to be stopped!

Neeva is the exact same as corona she will run up to everyone and flop down on her back demanding get belly rubbed! I just get a bit scared when they pick her up she doesn't weight 2 pounds so I'm like oh God don't drop her!! I do like the attention but sometimes I'm like they really need a walk guys! And Pablo freaks out with people he just wants to keep his distance but he can't because it's onky a 5M extending lead he's on I wish I had the guts to let him off but I'm too scared

Yeah, like I said, I've been lucky thus far as to no one just scooping Roni up, and when they ask I always say don't drop her and a lot of times that seems to detour them. Not going to lie, if I saw Pablo I would want to approach him as well! He is so so darling! And especially before I had one of my own and didn't know better! Tell him to stop being so cute!!! But really, it is frustrating and poor little Pablo, since it scares him so! And I agree, I would never, ever let Corona off her lead! To much can happen to fast! Corona does have a 8 ft extension and I always forget to hit the lock button and she is off visiting before I know it!!

I would be the same with corona I'm so in love with her eyes they're something else so gorgeous!! Neeva would never come back off the lead she would be visiting everyone we don't have dog parks with enclosed runs in scotland it's such a bummer as I would love for him to have that freedom
