Thread: When Do You Get Involved?

    Good point Minibulls mum.

    You may not have seen anything, which I know wont stand up, but if it made you feel that way then something hurt that dog. There is so much animal cruelty and hitting a dog is unacceptable in my books, it doesn't solve anything. We see so many head shy dogs it's sad.
    Lets hope it doesn't happen again but if it were me I would keep an eye on them. And if it did I wouldn't hesitate that call.

    I agree you such wait, watch & listen as if you heard the high pitched noise my poodle make when super excited you may think she was hurting.
    I would if after checking it out finding they are hurting the dog I would ask them if they need any training help. Sometimes in the you can do more good for the dog taking this route than than ringing RSPCA as really there is not much they can do unless the dog has injuries or you catch them on tape or something simalar. Maybe start collecting some animals welfare & training quick guide fliers & put them in their mailbox.
    If all else fails get evidence & ring the RSPCA.

    Thanks everyone.

    Cooler heads prevail! I shall indeed be watching and listening for any repeat behavious.

    Unfortunately, the wife hates the dog, and screams at it at any chance she gets - if it doesn't obey with second-fast responses, she just screams, so I already have pre-existing concerns over her attitude. Now this.

    So it just adds up to a potentially bad outcome for the doglet, which hurts me to even think about.

    Hitting is never acceptable to me, no matter what. If your only response to a situation is violence, I think you are the one with the problem, not the dog. (in the general sense)

    Generally I would agree but if it comes down to hitting/kicking a dog or having it kill another I wouldn't blame the person.

    There should be no tolerance of any sort of animal abuse.

    Thanks Dog Minder for the link.

    Here's a bit of an update.

    I think I may have put the fear of cr@p into my neighbour with catching him in act so to speak, as every time I hear them outside, they are very calm, no raised voices - even the wife seems to have sorted her sh!t out when it comes to the doglet.

    I am putting the 10 doggie commandments in the letterbox today when I go out, which will hopefully give them 'paws' and get them thinking about their life with their doglet companion.

    Bordeaux, if it was a matter of life or limb of a person, then yes, I would (and have) put myself into the mix, but this case was not like that. It was human to animal agression, and there is no acceptable reason for it.

    There are a few times I'd hit my dog.

    If she was in the process of attacking another dog or child. I'd pull her out by the tail and whop her. She's never done it, not a problem.

    I would also hit her or throw a rock at her if she looked like she was going to "play" with a snake. Fortunately for us, the one time we've met a live snake in the wild, she was on lead and couldn't get to it. Not for want of trying - no better fun play thing than a wiggly stick. Until it lifts its head up and hisses...

    I'm probably not going to win any friends by saying this but...........
    I say mind your own business and unless this is a daily occurence or the dog is in poor condition then butt out.
    Too many people think its ok to enforce thier beliefs or opinions right or wrong to those around them. Again unless its genuine animal cruelty and the animal is suffering i see that it has nothing to do with you whatsoever.
