After reading another post about the dogs being annoying, it has made me think a bit. I am a dog lover and I currently have 3 dogs (inherited one from my parents) and like most dog owners I walk them daily - I like to walk them without hassle of other dogs running over, but reading that they are all over the place has made me feel a bit anxious about moving. I have had experience of loose dog attacks and its not nice ☹️ I am looking to live in a village location rather than a town and I don't know if this would be better or worse?! I have been to Portugal several times and never really noticed it before... But when you're on holiday it could be something you wouldn't necessarily pick up on.
I also saw it was mentioned on a pros and cons of Portugal so I guess it must be bad enough to make people comment? So are they as bad as people have said?
