    TBH, the comments from MAC and Occy have me now looking at this in a different light.

    I wonder now what the reasons are that the first school doesn't take them at all? It also now makes me wonder if the 2nd school who take every dog do so according to the law?

    I remember years ago, sitting up with the instructors at my old club, we were talking about BSL (not yet in)

    One of the ladys made a comment that she hates Pit Bulls and is glad we have none at the club... Looking around I saw 5 papered (i knew the breeder) Pit Bulls... I pointed then out to her and she nearly crapped herself! Said one of them was her favorite dog to teach and she had no idea!!

    I wish we had a good dog club here

    That is very sad.

    I am not saying there is anything wrong with any of the bull breeds but lets face it if there is going to be a scuffle amongst dogs they are going to win.

    Before classes start and while people are arriving our instructors are mingling amongst the people gathering because you have dogs there that don't like other dogs, you have puppies that jump on other puppies and adult dogs that don't like puppies etc and their owners have no idea how to read the body language of the other dog.

    I can't tell you how many times I've had to approach people and told them to remove their over excitable puppy out of the face of an adult dog because it has given the puppy numerous warnings and the thing is neither dog owner has seen it.

    Again I'm not saying it's right, but insurances etc and the idiot factor take a toll on clubs.

    I know my insurance is high.
    An aside - Rufus is very strict with puppies. He tolerates some jumping and then growls and snaps. If they dont listen, he pins them down until they stop. On the other hand he will wrestle and get aggressive in his play with his girlfriends who are all older dogs!

    Lots of dogs are good with puppies and the majority of the dogs I see at the club are the same way.

    It's the people I have a problem with. Their dog is on a lead and has no way of escaping the over enthusiasm of another dog. Or the other thing people do is let the leads get tangled.

    Talking and not watching their dog, letting their dog go up to a dog tied up. (No dog is allowed to be tethered at our club for this very reason).

    The list goes on.

    We also have a collar system. One that identified dog aggressive dogs, another for dog to human aggression. But still you have to remind people of it.

    Our club has jackets for dogs that are no social - unfortunately the one owner that should have one doesnt and since they stopped making her wear it, her dog has attacked two other dogs - Rufus and another GSD. The dog scared the bejesus out of Rufus who is now extremely wary of that particular dog and the shep was left bleeding and now has scars on his nose.

    The dog has the potential to be a really nice animal but the owner is so convinced he is a maniac she just can't relax. I sympathise with her - been there, done that - but I wish she would just listen as her attitude towards him at training is egging him on

    God, i asked my old club about a jacket or a collar or something, kaos was shocking with other dogs back then (she is much better now) and so many people would just walk their dogs up to her to 'play' one lady even liked her talking sounds she made... (i did inform her they were not playing sounds.. they were eating sounds)

    I asked for a system to be set up, but they didnt want to bring it in because a lot of people would be upset - out of all the dogs there, I was pretty much the only one that had an aggressive dog! God it annoyed me
