This is potentially a stupid fucking move, so use your basic chimpanzee judgement
1. wild, or aggressive dogs will not like this
2. do you know the dog?
I live with a vicious german shepherd which was feral for the first part of its life.
It is very aggressive and reserved, and hates men
It liked to challenge my authority, until we got into a staredown that lasted probably two minutes.
1. The dog will not like this
2. I repeat, the dog will not fucking like this
I won the staredown.
now it runs from me.
