Recently, a conflict between a dog owner and child-sitting parents happened in Chengdu, when a woman went out accompanied by her golden retriever without a dog chain. At the door of the supermarket, the dog ran into a child. Parents of the child immediately protected the child by kicking the dog away. When woman saw that the dog was kicked on the belly, physical conflict started and the woman also got beaten.



Frustrated, the beaten woman said that golden retriever ran to the children just to show good, not to attack; To a child's parents, in a desperate rush to protect their kids, insisted that they have no idea what the dog would do to their kids.



Both insisted their views.


- "My dog doesn't bite,"


- "It's a beast who knows."



Which side are you?

Golden retrievers are big dogs but do not generally bite if correctly trained but, like all dogs, they need to be kept on a lead in public places. Also the interaction between dogs and children can be unpredictable and an owner must be in command of the situation. Had the owner been in command then her dog would not have approached the child without permission and ended up being kicked.
(mostly harmless)

It's purely dog owner's fault.

The parents of that child acted aggressively and ignorantly. Shame on them for kicking an animal. People like that should not ber entrusted with raising a child. They are not capable.

A Golden Retriever does not bite people. The parents have no right to kick another sentient being. They had no reason to do that except a misguided desire to overprotect their child. What they did to the innocent dog they might do to another human being.

Unfortunately, Chinese people have too many prejudices such as "dogs carry diseases" and "dogs carry rabies". The best way to avoid unfriendly encounters between a dog and humans is for people to learn to approach an animal without prejudices, fear and hatred. Is that possible?
