As a soon to be fur kid mummy (aka dog owner) I totally agree with your actions. Firstly, their dogs should not be roaming, and should definitely NOT be aggressive so as to attack you. If they are responsible pet owners and for some unknown reason are not aware of the havoc their pets are causing then they should be only too happy to fix the problem when the council brings it to their attention. If not, then the council needs to address it for them.
I also think the same goes for cat owners who allow their cats to roam around and take stinking dumps in my #$%%## backyard and spray on everything and make noisy nookie outside our bedroom window. Hence me getting a dog, at least then the poop belongs to my animal. I realise this opinion is not 100% agreed, particularly by cat owners, and if I offend, I apologise, just my opinion.
