I have very low expectations of most owners and am rarely disappointed. That is why I make sure that I protect my dogs from situations which can get out of hand.
You have a flat coated retriever which has an entirely different outlook on life than a Weimaraner or a GSD; added to that if there was an issue it is always certain dogs that get blamed (see article) just for existing (eg it would be my GSD).
I am perfectly aware of the consequences of poor temperament and poor training that is why I spend a great deal of time ensuring that my dogs do not get hurt; this often entails me having to carry a large stick unfortunately as if the owners cannot or will not train their dogs, I often have to do it for them!
