Monday i took squirt hiking at treasure falls on the continental divide. Ive never been there, its usually crowded, so we went early. It was a really nice steep hike but not something ill ever do with squirt again. For 1 squirt tried to jump off a bridge to get too the water (bridge in pic) and 2 the trail was narrow and that makes other dogs an issue. So the dog agressive behavior can be redirected... but whats the likelihood ill have a river or waterfall everytime she gets squirrelly. The adventures of squirt 20190914

I always dread the narrow trails if they are setup where I can't get off them. We do a large land bridge trail out at Dixon and if we met another dog there it would be a hairy meeting as the trail winds up and down the mountainside. It's a steep drop off on the outside of the trail and the inside of the trail is a hill face you can't get up. I've had to pick kenzi up before to keep her from eating a dog on the trail but haven't had to do that since adding 2 extra dogs.

The bridges that have the open mesh grating for floors are the worst to get across. Mine had to deal with one of those at Cumberland Falls a couple years back. Both interesting and frustrating.

I dont think she noticed the bridge just the water below she wanted to play in. Ive found some good trails i can let her off leash on but i stick to more used spots during hunting season. Squirts favorite thing is anything involving water or chasing fish. Narrow trails that consist of steep switchbacks are usually bad for squirt passing other dogs. Ive got her to where she can be inches from another dog with no reaction so long as the other dog is also nonreactive, but to assume another dog is going to be nonreactive would be dangerous

Ugh, yes, passing on the narrow trails is tough!

For us, it's usually looking around desperately trying to figure out how to avoid some dog that is going berserk and has gone past the point of no return...like, isn't hearing a word his/her owner said. Usually we can step offtrail into the woods a bit, or go behind a boulder, or backtrack back to where the trail widened...

Nowadays I just avoid the narrow trails on weekends/popular times. We do our real hikes on weekdays between 9 and 5 (since I freelance, can hike whenever). We stick to the wide trails if we're going at peak times...it's a lot more relaxing with a passing distance of at least a leashlength!

I always meet those people who have one tiny dog who steps off the trail (doesn't pick up their tiny dog) and then wants to wave me by with my 3 giant dogs. Um, no, it's far easier for me to just hold my 3 dogs in one spot off the trail out of the way than it is to try to move all 3 of them past your rat on the ground. It just doesn't seem to compute to some that their one dog is just easier to move and they should be the one walking on, not me.

I have less issues with small dogs, more issues with offleash dogs owned by people who think yelling "hes friendly" then going back to whatever they are doing is acceptable. That scares me because she did kill a husky/american bulldog a few years back and technically if she is on leash and gets in a fight with an offleash dog the owner of the offleash is responsible but id feel bad about it. Speaking of annoying rats i can no longer walk my dogs on the street i live on. New neighbors dont believe in leashes or fences or keeping thier chihuahua and pitbull from chasing people down the road.
