A QUICK STORY...
True story: While walking a shelter dog we were approaching a man walking with his toddler on his shoulders. In order to avoid any possible behaviors from the dog I turned and walked away. With my back turned, the man let his child down from his shoulders and without a single word let his child run up behind us. Unfortunately I had to yell no at the child in order for her to stop running at us. It was then that the father realized it was not okay to approach.
Moral of the story is to teach your children of all ages to ask before approaching a dog and if the person walking the dog turns a different direction take it as there may be a reason.
Most of the time we do not know what shelter dogs have been through and by taking them out in public we are working with them and training them that the entire world is not a bad place.
