    I think it would be a good move to read up on it Rid. I find it fascinating.
    I have learned so much about the ways my dogs communicate between themselves and with me.

    It has certainly made my time having Jodi tethered to study her for communication far easier than if I didn't have a clue.

    I agree, I have learned so much from my "pack" of dogs past and present and also from many books and Seminars.
    It has helped me so much in training and just in general handling of dogs. And it has become a sort of hobby, I love it now. It also leads to calming signals which have got me out of many situations with my previously people and dog aggressive newfie, Annabelle. me knowing her and reading her has made it possible for me to help her to be a more normal dog.

    I would say that I should read up on it.
    But will I read up on it? I think the answer is no.
    I am not trying to be an ignorant Pig. But I won't lie.
    I really don't like reading too much. The most reading I do is on forums like this.
    Even if the topic is something I want to really learn about it takes me over a year or so to do a 100 pages. I just get so bored with it. I wish I could read for longer, but Ihave never been strong on that point. So I won't lie to you or anyone here.
    I get my knowledge from places like this and life.
    Yep I have hit a few pot holes along the way but that is life as far as I can see.
    I have had dogs that people can't get over how well behaved they are.
    So I am doing something right.

    I will bet you 10 bucks that you unconsciously read Murphy anyway.

    I always appreciate your honesty, Rid.

    But I don't quite understand why you think the government should not tell your neighbour they need to have a basic level of control over their dogs and that they are properly socialised? I think it would benefit everyone: the dogs, their owner and their neighbours. And if it would replace some of the new BSL legislation, it is definitely good for pitbulls and their owners. I can only see it as a win-win situation.

    I would have to say that you are so right there.
    But this would be due to the fact we spend so much time together.
    Hence taking the wife to Puppy Classes so she can do some input with him.
    And she is comeing to Obedience training tomorrow so she can get a little more hands on with him. As he does close enough to what I ask of him, while the wife is still battling to get him to do quite a few things.
    I have picked her up on things I do which she was doing differently. So I got her on the same wave lenght as me with him.

    As for that reading I think this is right as I was just watching him and he looked up at the slidding door and was totally focused on it.
    So I went to have a look outside. Why? well we have got a Tom cat coming to our place and leaving its smell behind and I want to catch it.
    And last night the same thing happened but we were too slow.
    So yes I think it is happening but I am not reconising it.

    The breeder section of this is way wrong as there are people who don't want to have a pure bred dogs. So this would spell the end of the Mutt and these dogs have some of the best personalities. So to stop that is just wrong.
    The Temperment testing is not worth it as people may only want their dogs in their house. So as long as it is happy at home then it really defets that purpose.
    People may want a dog to protect the house and a get on with all dog may not fit in what they want.
    I want a dog like that and if someone breaks in and my dog bites them, I would think stiff. The dog is doing what it was bought for.

    I think you have got a good start just needs to be looked at a little more.
    Too late for me to go into too much detail Rid, but in QLD if your dog is protecting you and or his home he is pretty right and I doubt that will change

    No one has yet suggested from any GVT level that people cannot still breed outside of ANKC circles so crosses will continue, and to have to have ALL potential breeding dogs temperament tested by a properly qualified trainer ought to be done with all dogs, no matter what breed, size or cross.

    In other countries at least guard breeds have to pass SCH. 3 before you can register their pups, this at least gives a buyer the confidence to know the temperament of parents is sound, here, we do not know this, be our pup from BYB or show lines.

    I am agreeing with you and I can really see its benifits.
    But what I see are these older people who will dig in their heels and act like spoilt brat and tell you to go away but not that nice.
    My neighbour is like that. When I told him about the excess barking his dog done while he was away. I could see he didn't like it one little bit being told and it had to be done.
    Now put that into place and I know he will throw a tanty as they call it today. And the only one it will affect is the dog as he would rather see it dead than to comform.
    This is I sops the point in what I am getting at with all of this.
    I don't like his dog and I don't like people getting dogs and just throw food out to them. But with him he does look after it as its now his new little mate.

    Maybe you are right that it wouldn't work with people who have owned their dogs for a while. But if it would be a rule only for when you get a new dog?

    If this was bought in for all new dog owners and to those who would like to do it then by all means bring in any law to stop these people out there that just want a dog as some sort of symbol.
    I will sign up to do a licence to own Murphy in a heart beat. I am willing to put in what ever would be needed of me to retain him.
    So this is a resounding yes to all new pet owners and I would go as far to add the moggie into this also.
