I would never ever want to shoot a dog. But I'm very sorry to the dog owners who feel it is ok for your dog to run up to people because you know they are just being friendly. Other people do not know this, and other people should not have to deal with your dog running to them and sniffing them and possibly jumping up to them. I love dogs and have a huge tolerance for dogs misbehaving but if a dog of any substantial size comes running at me it is not my job to decide if he is going to lick me or try to eat me. He is a dumb lovable animal and should be controlled for his protection as well as mine. Not knowing an animals intentions when he is running at me gives me the right to defend myself if that animal violates my person space. I should not have to wait for the animal to attack me if I have reasonable fear that he may attack. This store has few details so I guess we'll see how it pans out.
