Dogs without muzzles

Have you ever had a bad experience with a dog that was unmuzzled or off its leash? Have you been attacked? Has your pet been attacked? Do dangerous dogs like that, going around unchecked, make you nervous? Afraid? Well, one of our listeners, Brian, got in touch with usvia emailabout his own experience. He said: A few weeks ago, when the weather was better,I was walking on a beach between Cork and Clonakilty with my wife, 3 kids and ourjackrussellwho wasjust about to go for a swim. Our dog wasthen approached andattacked by 2 dogs - a Staffordshire Bull terrier and what looked like a cross between a Rottweiler and a Staffordshire bull terrier. They were not on a leash and not muzzled although bothare meant to be at all timesin public. A witness told me that they saw the owner of the dogs who watched and did nothing,hedidn’t call them away. LuckilyI had a snorkel with me and I was able to hit thedogs away. Ourjackrussell,thankfully,survivedand is recovering but I think it is disgraceful that dog owners would allow such dangerous dogs off their leashes without muzzles. I amconstantly seeing unmuzzled dogs and uncaring owners, even since the attack on the beach.

Children's school anxiety

One of our listeners got in touch looking for help with her child's anxiety, she didn’t want to come on air but here is her email: Hi Ciara I hope you can help – my8 year oldboy is very anxious about school. He’s in 2nd class and has been like this since leaving senior infants, maybe a little when starting 1st class too. I suppose he’s always been a little anxious (he started school at 5), but it feels like it’s escalated recently. Wemoved housethe year before he finished Senior Infants, but we didn’t move far away and he seemed to take it well. His school are quitesupportiveand he’s got a good teacher who’s trying her best, but it’s a big class and I’m aware she’s under pressure. He often refuses to go altogether, saying he’s worried about leaving me and Dadincasesomething happens, or saying he’s worried he won’t do hisschool workwell & people will think he’s stupid. He never sleeps on Sundays saying worrying about school keeps him awake. He seems calmer when he isn’t in school but is still a little worrier and always has been. There’s a couple of boys he’s friendly with and sits beside according to his teacher. She thinks he’s doing ok, but he doesn’t find it easy to make friends. We’ve tried to get him to join the local soccer or GAAteambut he says he doesn’t want to, same goes for holiday camps. I don’t know if we should just make him go and hope he builds some resilience & thereby lessen his anxiety, or if we should try and find different hobbies he might like. He’s such a good kid butdefinitely hasanxious tendencies and school seems to bring this out so much more. I’m embarrassed to admit that occasionally when he’s very distressed and tired I’ve let him stay home but I know that’s not the answer. Returning to school yesterday after the mid-term was so stressful that I felt I had to write this email – have any of your listeners had a similar situation? Do you have advice or tips on how to deal with this? Might he just grow out of it? Is it time to visit an expert? (I don’t want him to think there is something wrong with him) Thanks, anxious Mum Listeners whose children experienced school anxiety contacted us and explained how they managed it?

Property tax increase

Almost a million homeowners will pay extra property tax next year after a record number of local authorities hiked their rates. The data also shows a major rural-urban divide when it comes to the application of property tax – with homeowners in Dublin being the only ones to see the tax reduced while it is increasing in 19 counties – how do you feel about this increase? Ciara chats to Karl Deeter, Financial analyst, at Irish Mortgage Brokers & yes.ie and hears from listeners.

Would you pay a 'cakeage' fee?

You have heard of ‘corkage’ but what about cakeage? Well If you want to bring a birthday cake along to an evening meal in a restaurant, you could be hit with cakeage fees of up to €50. That’s according to a report from yesterday’s Sunday Times, who found that a quarter of restaurants they surveyed were charging up to €5 per head for parties bringing cakes along with them.
