Thank you very much indeed for your positive response. Unfortunately the contents of this video have already been deemed to be unacceptable by some and has seen us disqualified from one forum already because, they claimed, it gave the wrong impression to prospective dog owners and was evident of psychological and physical animal abuse. They also alleged that my actions were teaching and encouraging bad habits in the dogs which would inevitably see them destroyed after they attacked and mauled an innocent human.
However, despite the accusation of being dreadful owners we have been fortunate enough to acquire and provide them with as much natural area as possible so that they are able to play and wander in freely. As the Sarí is a fairly nomadic dog this suits their requirements ideally and provides them with sufficient stimulation for that indefatigable brain of theirs.
Although living fairly remote has its advantages it also presents its disadvantages. For example; the nearest Veterinarian is a 150kilometre drive away and, at the present moment, it is the hunting season. Therefore the dogs are confined to a large compound which incorporates some of the surrounding forest area and access to the houseÖ.This arrangement, Iím sad to say, is much to their disapproval.

Maybe I'm just old school or am missing something but I seriously doubt it. I didn't see anything wrong with that video, and where the heck did they see physical or psychological animal abuse, they were just playing. I guess I'm used to seeing people play with their dogs like that so I don't see anything wrong with it and you didn't get hurt and neither did they and the one dog did stop when you told him to wait so it's obvious that you do train them. Maybe if you lived in the city then it might be more of a problem but Sar's are not meant to live in the city anyways so they are just doing their natural thing and if you don't have them play like that with little kids it should be fine. IMO. And I am very happy to hear that they have the freedom and space to roam and explore like they love to do but I can understand being that far from a vet and such would be difficult. Well I'm sorry that you had to deal with that situation on another forum but I think people here will be a lot more understanding.

Indeed, they were just playing! Which is visibly evident by the sheer delight and enthusiasm of both dogs.
Perhaps if some folks took more time to actually observe and understand the natural play behaviour of dogs and not just their body language, then, just maybe, there would be less disapproval of how some interact on a more fundamental level in order to achieve a more equal relationship and one that, I could just as easily claim, outrivals the old and worm out image of an obedient dog and its all powerful master.
However, unfortunately I am forced into the belief that some sites design rules and regulations to suit only their own idealistic insular world and such exclusive laws arenít meant to be understood or questioned, just observed and stringently adhered to.
The site in question failed to provide me with the equal opportunity to defend myself against the accusations and neither did it allow me to justify the video. What it did threaten me with was, exposure to the world and legal action?
I guess some laws are all exacting and the writers overtly pious yet patently blinded by ignorance.

All I can say is wow! Some people just don't make sense whatsoever.
