I'll respond more in detail when I get home since I'm at work right now, but I like the idea of offering to tie him up just while I'm walking my dogs. He is definitely a friendly dog.... A VERY friendly dog. He does it because he is overly excited and wants to play, but it is just super annoying. This morning Cricket was pooping. I heard the front door open and before I could react he barreled into her and knocked her over while she was in the middle of pooping. It hurt her too because she was limping a little after (though seems fine now). I tried to get between them and held him by his collar so she could try to finish going to the bathroom. I then waited until he went back inside to walk Bamm and Joey. He was out there for about a half hour and Joey whined the whole time because he hadn't done his morning pee/poop yet. Also I won't pepper spray him. I'm willing to do the "throw treats for him" but only if his owners are ok with it since I wouldn't want someone else to treat my dog without permission.
