This afternoon my wife and I were out riding our tandem. As we were going down a country road a dog jumps off the front porch of a house snarling, barking and heading toward us. My latest defense has been to yell at the do which I started to do. Then the dog's owner who is standing off to the side starts yelling"Don't yell at my dog!" The dog slowed and we sped up. A few minutes later a car comes up along side. It is the owner say"What's your problem?" I stated " The only way for us to protect ourselves from dogs iss to yell at them". He goes on to say no one ever yelsl at his dog and his dog would never go after someone. Even though it just happened. He then want to stop his car and fight. At this point we are just pedaling and not say a word. He then calls us a few choice words and gives us the finger and speeds off.
So what is a guy to do in a situation like this?
