hi

Went to Dog Training last night,there were allsorts of dogs even a cross between bernese/border collie,if you remember the film "The Fly" at theend the person ended up with a flys head,well this dog had a silver head,and a brownish silver body,the lady said that the father was a marl border collie.not the typical black and white,but it was a friendly big dog.Most of the dogs there wanted to please, but there were two exceptions both accompanied by young males with there mums,given as gifts, they were staffie all decked out in macho harness,but it was there behavior,that caused the problem,we all had to go round on the lead,but there was a little girl jumping up and down,hands flailing,the other dogs were just doing what asked,though some were pulled around on there bums,one of the staffies made a bee line to the little girl,started to snap but someone was very quickand scooped the child up,the young male just carried on totally unaware,then the second stafie got into the closed off bit for really young puppies,who hadnt got there big teeth through,it was just a plastic netting,the guy on the other side of the hall taking ringcraft classes,just jumped over all the barriers,picked te staffie up and beckoned to the two owners,another older trainer took them off to the side to continue their training.But it is so easy to see how the dogs get a bad name its the idiots that own them,all dogs have some aggression,but if brought up as normal family pets,the aggression is muted,but if you get people buying dogs to make themselves tough,well we all know where that leads,and unfortunately its the few bad ones who capture the news,and thena dog gets a bad name,I only hope that one day people will see that we the ones at fault not the dogs.gemini
