Mary is out walking her two dogs on leash at her local park and in the distance she sees another dog owner with his dog. She becomes anxious. Both of her dogs are older and are very protective. Other dogs get them riled up, and not only put unnecessary stress on themselves, but on Mary as well. Mary attempts to divert her path away from the dog, but the other owner doesn’t get the hint. Barking, pulling, and growling ensues, and now the other owner is well aware of why she was trying to avoid them.
