    The report button, is that little black triangle with the ! mark in it at the bottom of every post.

    People please remember - if you're thinking of calling someone a troll or telling them to "piss off" - maybe try the report button first, give us a couple of hours to catch up and deal with it before turning the forum into a slanging match.

    Some dogs don't like some Vets. It seems unusual for a Vet to freak out like that. And there is nothing like a person frightened of dogs, and sending all the wrong signals (direct eye contact, reaching and grabbing instead of waiting for dog to calm down etc) to make the whole deal worse. I mostly have vets very surprised that my dog is so well behaved at the vet. My dog can put on a very fierce show when she wants to, but she hasn't done it at the vet.

    So I am with the others that suggest contacting Steve at K9pro for help, and definitely changing vets - and finding one that isn't so sensitive. And maybe making a muzzle part of every vet visit. Note - it's a good idea to connect wearing the muzzle with good things, not just visits to the vet. Ie lots of muzzle with treats practice anytime anywhere.

    I have never used a report function in my life, Id rather say what I think than report. If that means I get in trouble and/or banned. So be it.

    We've got rules for a reason. What makes you so special that you think they're ok to ignore?

    I might agree with your opinion of you know who (YKW) but I feel that you could express it in a way that doesn't look like abuse - ie it's ok with me to call their idea idiotic or inflamatory, but not them. If that makes sense.

    But truly the best thing to do with a nasty attention seeker - is give them none.

    I dont think the rules dont apply to me per se...

    JUst that I think some are rubbish LOL (edit to add: That is a joke fyi)

    In regards to the nasty attention seekers, I find them amusing and enjoy playing with them.

    Im a disturbed individual - what can I say

    I have had a dangerous dog for 4 yrs. Declared dangerous dog because of being dog aggressive. Was absolutely fine at home with family.
    But you do have to have it on leash, for the rest of its life whilst in public. Your dog must NEVER get out. Your garden and dog enclosures are inspected as sound and safe to contain your dog. It WILL be PTS if found outside and on dangerous dog register.

    Can anyone recommend a good dog muzzle? I've been looking at getting one asap to train Roxy to get used to it before her next vet trip in a month.
    There are so many to choose from and I have no idea..

    Sharoo, I agree with the others here that vets opinion was highly innappropriate and i guess i dont need to tell you you wont be going back there. And full marks for doing what you can to control the dog rather than just flipping him off to be some one elses problem.

    My lab was the most gentle creature in all situations you could imagine, when he was unwell he got a bit ansy with the vet, not biting or snapping but just turning toward him in a slightly aggressive manner as his last visit had involved him being in some pain.
    On my next visit, the nurse asked me i had bought a muzzle with me, I asked why and was told the vet had marked his file "dangerous" which required the owner to muzzle at visits.
    I was taken aback by this as they had been treating him for years, knew he was gentle and docile but now in pain.
    While I do understand the need for vets to protect themselves, i wonder if he felt threatened why he didnt speak to me at the time.
