Check out new legislation. As far as I'm aware dogs need to be "under control" at all times. She needs to be able to recall her dog when necessary.

I think your mum should just try to avoid this particular dog / owner or if she sees them put her dog on his lead . My dog doesn't like other dogs harassing him but it is a risk when you have your dog off lead because that entitles other dogs to approach them . If I see another dog starting to 'wind' mine up I always recall mine and take him out of the situation before he gets to snapping point . The problem is you get all these people who say that dogs read other dogs body language and stay away if they realise another dog doesn't want to play but in my experience that is absolute bollocks .

I'd pop him on the lead to pass other dogs...I don't think it sounds like she should have to as he's minding his own business and only telling off rude dogs who interrupt him, but the owners of rude dogs won't have it that their dogs are the ones in the wrong, so putting him on lead as they approach tells the owner she doesn't want him to play with her dog.

And no, he can't have her dog PTS, he can report it to a dog warden, but without an injured human that's as far as it would go.
