Tonight we were on the fields when I saw a lady approach with a Jack Russell off lead. I put Reuben on as I always do and this dog started to stalk him, I was not sure if this was in play or what so I shouted over to ask if he / she was friendly, her response was 'it depends' at which point this dog charged at Reuben and it was clear he was not friendly. He was trying to get at Reuben whilst I was kicking it away with one foot whilst trying to protect Reuben.
Reuben was very good and only after a few lunges by this dog did Reuben react but thankfully did not make contact.
The woman eventually caught up with her dog, grabbed it and put it on the lead apologising.

We carried on down the field, Reuben was off lead and a couple of minutes later I heard this woman screaming at her dog, I turned around only to see it was in full charge towards us again. I put Reuben on the lead and as it neared to us it changed its mind, turned around and ran back to its owners.

In hindsight I wondered if I had done right by putting Reuben back on his lead or whether I should have left him free to sort this little shit of a dog out?
I do feel it was up to me to try and protect Reuben but this dog was quick as anything and I really struggled to keep it at bay on the first interaction and the last thing I wanted was Reuben getting injured when he was restricted by the lead

What would you have done or do you think I should have done?

I also would have done exactly the same. It is tempting to let them off to sort it out but if he had gone too far then Reuben would have been in the wrong and that wouldn't have been fair on him.

Also I bet Adam says you are the one to sort out unruly dogs, not your dog spinner smile

I would have done the same Jo. No point in "letting" them fight if it can be avoided.

It's clear the JRT was out of control unlike Reuben. Shame on the other owner I think . oh no

i would be tempted to let Reuben sort it out the second time
having said that Reuben would have been in the "wrong " being a staffy if the jack russell had been injured
stupid woman
