    So what about the dogs that attack people? The ones that are on the news? How many times has it been reported they were a 'family dog'?

    And how many times does it come out later that the dog was unsupervised at the time?

    It wouldn't happen if people did the right thing with their dogs. Period.

    I hardly see how those dogs are relevant to me? You asked how I can trust my dog 100%. Wasn't my answer good enough for you?

    So we are talking SUPERVISED trust? In that case, im sure 99% of dogs are '100%' trustworthy.

    You should NEVER leave an infant, toddler or child alone with the family dog or a friend's dog, even if the dog is "as gentle as a lamb" and "loves children". It does not matter if the dog is large or small. It does not matter what breed the dog is. Even if you are in the room, a baby or toddler should NEVER be left on the floor in the same room with any dog.

    Ok, for the 2nd time. I Would NEVER Leave My Dog Unsupervised In Any Situation That May Have Any Kind Of Negative Impact On Him.

    He isn't even left unsupervised in my own backyard thanks to my next door neighbours dog. I know HE would not do anything wrong. I don't know about anyone else.

    I agree entirely with what you are saying, I've even said the same myself!!!

    I COULD easily leave Batty or Ben alone with kids and I KNOW that they would NEVER do anything to hurt anyone without provocation - I cannot guarantee that there is nothing that provokes them, therefore I do NOT ever leave them in that situation.

    I don't believe in leaving a child unsupervised. What idiot would leave a child under ten unsupervised. Oops, I shouldn't ask that question because more kids in Australia die each year because the parents were not supervising or watching.
    And actually it is the kids I don't trust. I don't trust my grandson to be on his own even without Ralph!
    Oh and the bit about Ralph sleeping on my bed, if he turned he could do some nasty ripping. But on the other hand, all he would have to do is lick the inside of my mouth while I was sleeping and I would be in serious trouble as I have a really bad allergy to dog saliva protein. Ralph has been trained not to go near my face when I am in a horizontal position.

    I don't trust my grandies either so there is very close hovering supervision if they are with the pups, then the pups are put in their pen. Pretty is very timid with those she does not know, no idea if there would be fear aggression. Same thing hovering supervision then she is happy to be shut in our bedroom. I think she is relieved lol. The pups come out when the grandies come inside.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I think this is the point they're making Ange. It's not a matter of you thinking your dog would be bad, it's a matter of not always being able to predict or trust in their reaction to certain situations, and thus protecting them from those situations or supervising them.

    That's what they mean by not trusting. Perhaps saying you can't always be certain of your dog's reaction is a less reactive phrase than saying you don't trust them.
