For those who might be afraid of dogs or do not like them, here are tips on feeling safe:
Dog feces on your way? Sometimes the dog owners are willing to listen. For example, ask them: "Can I help by suggesting a better dog-walking route?”. Or provide a poop bag and say: “You're welcome! ". Avoid getting upset at the dog or the owner. It might be more cathartic to shout, but won`t solve the problem.
