I support dog walkers and pedestrians, and always give way to them and their pets. However, some dog owners fail in their responsibilities towards other path users.

Dog walkers should always be in control of their animals at all times. Note that should the dog cause an accident, it'd be me asking for compensation from the owner. I'd really hate that, especially if the animal was harmed.

Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 section 3.

I've often shown poor dog control up as irritating to other path users. Here's today's experience showing that the owners showing poor control are more rare than those who know what that should do and respect others. I also respect their space (and the dogs joy of being outdoors!).
