Tips for Dealing with Stray Dogs
Assess the Situation
First of all, make sure there is no owner around. Unfortunately, some dog owners let their dogs roam free. Do a visual sweep of the area and make sure you don't see an owner before you proceed.Next, does the dog appear to be injured or distressed? If so, you must proceed with caution. An injured or distressed dog may try to bite. Plus, moving a seriously injured dog may worsen the injuries. Unless you have experience with these types of things, it may be best to call local animal control.
