But, if you can't wash your own dog, (AND your dog is as viscious as you say), you may want to consider some professional intervention. It sounds like you're just a mistake away from making national headlines.
I have two pitbulls; one has some PT training. But, they would have just squared off against the guy and not let him through the door. (Something, not too unlike this event has happened to me a couple of times.)
She is just difficult to wash because she hates it. I did exaggerate that a tad.
However, she is an extremely agressive/protective 13 year old, 40lb mix breed and I love it.
I don't have to worry about dirt bags trying to approach us in or outside with her in close proximity. After she's finished with any intruder, or agressor, I'd have to shoot them just to put them out of their misery.

We take our Boxer and our Springer Spaniel in the shower,they love it.There are no thugs around either.

When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.
The author's expertise isn't about guns, so that advice we leave behind.
My wife is really confortable with handguns so his advice about Gun Safety she knows better not to heed.
I just want her to realize the danger women face and the people who present that danger.
I totally agree. Glad to know she won't be swayed. Other than that horrible advice, the rest of the book is excellent. That first chapter should get the attention of just about anyone.
You handled that as clean as you got your dog. Good job.
And the very best sort of event is the one that ends up being a non-event with you and your dog staying alive and well and able to lather up another day.
Max you need a bath.......... not now dad......... OK buddy.
Glad it worked out for the OP. Nice to know you have your CCW if you need it.

Our current dog is aging fast but a great protector / barker. Our next dog will be a Sheppard and a TRAINED Sheppard....and I'll be armed. It will take a pretty ballsy interviewer to step to that scenario.
Oh yeah...I agree...hand on grip just in case. From close range fractions of a second count.

Sounds like you did a good job. A simple lock on the inside of the dog wash would prevent this and the bloodbath if some unattended child walked in on JoJoGunn washing his pekineese.

Glad there was no further problems.
I tend to end the beginning of 'interviews' pretty quickly...I'm not friendly, I don't look friendly, I don't sound friendly. I'm sure that I have offended an honest person or two...so be it.

I believe that looking these types right in the eyes while responding with authority and confidence sends the message you are no easy target, they usually sense it real quick and move on.
I'd say you handled it very well indeed.
