Does any route / course tool offer a way to find or mark locations of loose dogs?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The bane of cyclists' existence is the loose dog. If they're vicious, they bite. If they're friendly, they run into your front wheel -- sometimes ending up worse than a bite.

So . . . is there any route / course tool out there that allows you to find (or mark) areas where loose dogs are known to be? Do Garmin or Strava have this feature? Is there an online map that provides this information?

The only one that I'm aware of is UpRide, which is a Cycliq site. It primarily focuses on dangerous driving, but there are also animal encounters. I don't know if you can add to the map without video, but you could reference the map for course making.
