    I think if that was one part of a number of initiatives that they just may reduce the problem significantly.

    One thing i do question is why they're getting a university to develop their temp test and not qualified dog trainers/behaviourists.

    Because that would be too sensible and too logical! Why would you get someone very well qualified and experienced to design a dog temperament test when you can get a Ph D student studying philosophy or linguistics who knows nothing about dogs to design a dog temperament test?

    I am a product of the modern university system (I have a Batchelor of Science {physiotherapy} from Curtin University 1992). Most of what I learned was bull shit backed up with dubious statistics. Since I graduated, I have invested a lot of time, effort, money, and sweat in learning stuff that actually benefited my patients. Not the stuff they taught me at uni.

    You do not need a university degree to understand people, and the same goes for dogs. While a psychology degree will help you to understand human mental disorders, and a veterinary degree will help you understand and treat animal physical and mental disorders (i.e. pathology!), most people and most dogs are not pathological. So you just need to understand normal human and animal or dog behnaviour.

    My pit bull Hobbes does not exhibit pathological behaviour. He is just a dog FFS! Just like any other dog. Any dog owner with a bit of experience and half a brain could understand where my Hobbes is coming from. Too easy!

    The APBT is the best of the best dogs (but it is just a dog, like any other breed of dog)

    My avatar? It's a pit bull in a poodle suit (a bit like me really)
