I have had 35 - 42 kgs Pointers for over 20 years and they have never jumped on anyone with out my permision.
I am regulary pawed and knocked by your typical small or even Lab sized dog, the last three Labs (silly soidal) got my knee in their chest, the owners said nothing.
Its not freindly or greeting for a complete stranger to be pawed with muddy feet on your clean clothes.
Some dont like dogs and some eastern natives think dogs very unclean and will quickly scoop up there young.
In basic dog training greeting your own dog is done at you leisure at the time you specify, when arriving home you ignore your dog and some time later greet it, saves all that hyper bouncing of the walls
These dog owners are not masters at all..........ask them who wears the trousers in their house
If they do then why are they not masterful of their pack
A certain owner always goes for a silly dog, then trys to laugh off any criticisum of their pet.
I have had dogs run into my shin at speed even trip me up and cause me to fall to the floor, the owners make them selves scarce be walking away.
Next time turn your back on dog /s and ask the owner to put their dog on a lead...always gets their goat especially when you add that their dog needs training classes.
Next Labrador sized dog that jumps up at you, just bring your knee up on its chest, If you get it right the dog will do a backward somersault, and dogs learn very quickly not to come back.
Fortunately pointers are very aloof thus showing no interest in humans unless they are hairy and fast
But are very strong willed, so not for the faint hearted..............Thats why Weimarana rescue homes are a plenty
