I remember a few years ago walking home from my nans house with my brother, we walked past a man beating his beautiful golden lab with his belt.
This was in broad daylight- My brother approached the man and asked him what the hell he thought he was doing. Man obvioulsy fancied his chances and tried to 'whip' my brother with the belt.
Not ashamed to say that my brother can handle himself and took the belt from the man and gave him a good few slaps/whips with it.

Wow really tempted to say seize the riding crop and break it over your knee while lecturing the owner on cruelty, but seems more sensible (for your own safety) to phone local RSPCA and ask them what to do. People can be banned from keeping dogs if they treat them improperly, I remember reading about a Crufts judge who had her own dogs at home in shocking condition & she was banned for two years.
