Hi Kevin

Tia can be very moody around unfamiliar dogs, and I know how scary it can be when off leaders come bounding along. The owner is miles away, shouting and waving at their dog who is not taking a blind bit of notice. Then when they get closer all you get is "its ok hes friendly", thats all well and good but their dog is often being invasive, dominant and not friendly at all.
The dog laws state that all dogs must be kept under control in public places at all times. As has been said, you do not need to muzzle Yuki unless she is a threat to people/dogs.
If on your walk there is a persistant nuisance dog that causes Yuki problems, you can tell the owner to stop this from happening or you will be contacting the Dog Warden for advice about reporting an owner failing to control their dog in public. I have used this approach myself in the past, it works.
I try to walk Tia where I can be fairly sure we will not encounter off leaders, prevention is also good for your wifes peace of mind. Sometimes just a change of walk time can avoid the "dog walk rush hour"
If your dog doesn't like someone, then you probably shouldn't either !
