    About 200,000 dog bites occur each year in the UK.
    And nearly 3800 a year goes to A&E.

    Chances are, while you were writing your post, a child in the UK was disfigured.
    and a seemingly harmless person turns around and stabs someone for a purse

    Dogs are like people, they vary. Most dogs, if trained well won't do anything like bite someone unless provoked. Socialise them and they're fine with kids.

    If a child didn't learn what was right and wrong, they could also lash out. Yes?

    I remember once there was this dog taking up most of the aisle at the front of the bus, when I wanted to get off. Dogs really do scare me and this one was quite big, and looked like it was half wolf or something :woo: :o:

    Anyway, it was a crowded bus and I really didn't want to have to squeeze past this dog so I had to ask the lady if she didn't mind taking the dog off the bus and letting me get off, then taking it back on. Is that unreasonable? She seemed to think so with the look I got!

    to be fair id have just pulled him closer to me so you had plenty of space to walk past and didnt have to squeeze against him. It was probz a husky.

    OP
    In my experience it's people that are worse than dogs. You're more likely to get a person who is aggressive/drunk/smelly/vomits on the seats/belches than a dog that causes worse problems. You can't catch dog fleas so you're alright there (their fleas may bite, but boo hoo it's a bite, no worse than a gnat biting you when you're asleep).

    And there's plenty of reasons people may wish to travel with a dog, out of the county, or indeed out of the country. For some people dogs are like humans, close friends and such.

    And there are X number of suicide bombings by Islamic extremists every year (I haven't got the time or inclination to find the actual number)...should we be terrified of every single Muslim? Piss poor argument.

    About a month ago I was on a plane back from San Jose (Costa Rica), and about half-way through the flight I noticed a dog running up and down the aisle, and it turned out it was owned by the woman sitting next to me. The when it got tired it went to sleep on her lap. It was a bit surreal, really.

    I think it's good you're allowed to take dogs on public transport, not everyone has a car. I think some people are overreacting. Just relax.

    Tbh, people and kids are more likely to be making a noise and being a nuisance than a dog on public transport. Whenever I've seen dogs on public transport they've always been perfectly calm and placid and just sit next to their owners or lie down if they have room. I remember seeing 2 golden labs on a train that had kids backpacks on their backs full of biscuits and they just layed under the table.
    There's a woman who reguarly gets on my bus and she stinks and i mean stinks. You can smell her when you're upstairs or at the other end of the bus it's that bad. And if she's sat near me i have to put my hand over my nose and mouth to try and ease the smell or i begin to heave. Once after she got off the bus driver sprayed the seat with febreeze because the smell lingered and she bought that bottle because of her in particular.
    I'm far more bothered by this than a dog sat with it's owner. But she payed as has as much right to be there as me, it's just something you have to put up with. Most dog owners are sensible about it and I've never seen a dog get agressive on public transport. Honestly, some people need to grow a pair.

    If a human being was punching you in the face I'd like to see you calling him "poor" and still help him and then been glad it was in a "warm rescue centre".

    I despise people like you.

    People who do this should be shot.

    In fact all dog owners should be shot, along with their beloved 4-legged **** of a pet.

    If there were 10 muslim terrorist attacks in the UK every single day, I bet you would be the first to call for their extermination.

    Today I was sitting on the Tube, and a youth got on with a bulldog/rottweiler type of dog (i didnt look at it too much) and sat in the seat next to me. I am scared of dogs, especially that sort, so I immediately got up and moved to the carriage behind.

    As I moved, he looked at me like I was an alien "what is his problem?" I bet he thought. :rolleyes:

    He travelled from Uxbridge to Baker Street, which is a good 40 minutes' ride. Now, unless he went to a dog show, why on earth would you think of taking your dog with you if you were travelling around 20 miles into another county, especially on public transport? :mad:

    There are no laws against this type of thing, but the dog could have started barking, it could have become aggressive, it could have urinated or excreted all over the floor, or it could have even had fleas.

    To make matters worse, the chav had his feet on the seat opposite! :mad:
    They're two very different looking dogs. It seems like you just had a problem cos he was a "youth" who "looked at you" (as one would if you got up as soon as one sat down), and "had his feet on the seat"...because of this you just assume he's a chav with a dangerous dog...sounds like neither the lad or the dog did anthing wrong so what's the problem?
