I am not taking any side

The whole incident could have been avoided by both individuals had they used their heads. Either the owner should have tied the dog up or the officer should have stayed in the car until the dog was under control. If I were making a house call and the person's dog was barking at me when I drove up I would have stayed in the car until the owner had the dog under control. I was bitten twice in my career and in both cases it was my fault for taking unnecessary chances.
