    Things like that is what adds to the bad reputation. That JRT owner is gonna walk off saying 'A Pit Bull attacked my dog, they're all vicious.'
    Sorry Myf but I dont agree with this at all.

    Blue was on lead and the small dog was showing signs of aggression.....Blue is a papered Am Staff so I would personally BE RUBBING IT IN THERE FACES

    My cattle dog (who lives with my father on his farm) is what you would consider Bomb proof. He has no interest in other dogs or other people, has no fear of any sudden loud noise or any other noise. He does not chase any animal other than the cows when he is herding them from paddock to paddock.

    He has never had a fight with any dog, has never gone after any other animal and is very obedient.

    That is what I would call bomb proof. He goes to the pub with father, goes everywhere and does everything with father in fact. There is bomb proof as the term is generally taken to mean that the animal can be faced with almost anything without reacting.

    I re-read and it says at the start that he was running off and not listening to them.

    A dog has its own mind and its own brain. ALL dogs are unpredictable. You can never ever know what the dog is going to do in certain situations.

    Yes you can. It's called effective control. If you put the time and effort into the training, particularly with the working breeds you will be rewarded. If you learn your dogs drives and work with that while training you will wind up with a dog you can control under any situation.

    If you want a better example look at the Military Working Dogs or the Police dogs, if there's no such thing as bomb proof how do you explain those dogs and the level of control the handlers have over them?

    Sure, you can have control to a degree. But never 100% control. They are living breathing animals. How would you know how they would react in certain situations? You don't.
    What about 'bomb proof' horses? How much trust would you have in something of that size?

    Actually I've ridden since I was 7 years old and I KNOW for a fact that bomb proof horses are just that. I have owned 3 bomb proof horses and even ridden one safely through a hail storm.

    I would trust a bomb proof horse before I would readily trust any person.

    Again, Bull. Yes you can have 100% control. You need to put the hard yards in with your dog and learn your dogs reactions and body language before it reacts - then you will gain 100% control.
