    Was bitten while entering a customer's garden while carrying triple
    extension ladders, I kicked it in the head and the owner said, ' you can
    pack that in'....I still don't know whether he was talking to me or the dog.
    Only that once in 25 years of working at people's houses - most normal folk
    who have uncontrollable mutts keep them locked up when you are there - it
    takes a combination of idiot dog *and* owner for an attack to take place.

    Microchips are all well and good provided you can catch the damn dog
    in the first place. Why not compulsory muzzles when outside the home,
    regardles of size or breed? Job done.

    That's not always true..
    my mom had a recue poodle..
    it was well behaved with everyone..
    well everyone until my brother visited for the first time..
    as soon as the dog saw him it went barking mad and does so every time he
    went there.
    It never did that with anyone else.

    Dogs I don't mind.

    It's being bitten by customers I seriously object to.

    Was it a standard poodle?

    It is well know that the minature and toy poodles are also called fanny
    lickers.

    And does anyone believe it will make any difference? How many postal
    workers have been bitten whilst walking in the street. I suspect that if
    they are bitten/attacked it will when delivering to a property

    Nope, not ever.

    Dogs have one hell of a capacity to only bite those who fear being bitten by
    dogs.

    They operate on 'front' much more than any other domesticated species.

    'front' isnt quite the right word but cant think of anything better.

    Its all about aura with dogs.

    Those that get bitten don’t even realise how dogs operate.

    We've had compulsory microchipping for years now and its made
    no difference what so ever to those who get bitten as part of their
    job, essentially because the worst of the dog owners don’t bother
    regardless of what the law requires.

    And we have had a number of small children killed
    by dogs too and a rather smaller number of adults.

    So I wasted all my time by not getting bitten when I do my animal charity
    work?

    I can handle a dog.

    Yeah, some dogs can be weird like that.

    Mine took a particular dislike to just one individual.

    Mine was an inside dog, fucking huge great alsatian.

    He used to spend most of his time just inside the big
    armoured glass patio door that's the front door, facing
    onto the park next to the house that's the walk way thru
    for the high school that at the end of that park.

    All that individual had to do was to be visible around
    the corner of the park 100 feet away for the dog to go
    bananas. Never did that with anyone else, with hordes
    of the school kids going past every day.

    Dog don’t bite for the fun of it.

    If you really did understand dogs, you wouldn’t have ever got bitten.

    Let's just say the first one that bit me had a owner that was a wanker. And
    it is possible for a dog to travel down the stairs "faster" than suggested
    by Newtons laws of gravity.

    Sure, but if you did understand dogs, you'd have allowed for that too.

    Cesar Millan doesn’t get bitten except in a situation where he doesn’t care
    about that.

    The main advantage of compulsory microchipping is to identify the owner
    for the various fines the powers that be can think up

    The main advantage is to be able to find the owners when
    they are strays so they can be returned to the owners.

    Whether its actually worth the immense cost of
    microchipping all dogs tho is another matter entirely.

    Yeah, never seen anything like it, particularly with the nuttiest dogs.

    Its rather more complicated than that, particularly with dogs
    biting visitors as was originally being discussed, particularly
    when the owner isnt around when the vistor shows up.
