    Well, someone cut a hole in the fence of the hardware store they were protecting and they got loose.

    They ended up a few hundred meters down the road at Kmart at 6pm at night... and yep, someone got bitten. We were there, this guy did nothing to provoke the dog, he simply walked past it and the dog latched onto his leg, then grabbed him on the hand when he tried to push it back.

    I can't stand dogs used for protection, whether it be personal or property, there are very few that are trained correctly.
    all dogs that i have come across have een very well trained and so are their handlers and or owners

    Have to agree with Pugger and i think if you go to the trouble of advertising that your dog is trained in attacking you would actually be making it easier for prosecution, remember a 3 yo child cant read how much training your dog has had, and personally i cant imagine you guaranteeing beyond %100 that your dog will discriminate between adult and child.

    no charges were laid on the OWNER of a trained pp dog? i fail to see where there is no difference.

    I hope youve done your research because you will soon be the owner of a large an incredibly strong dog.
    As for hatred towards Pittbulls i dont think ive personally expressed myself that way, i know i wouldnt own one and i totally understand there are very responsible owners out there but i think some are the reason it has the reputation it has.
    I know my first introduction to them was through owners who wanted the toughest dog.

    It was just a bit close to home to hear the B.M mentioned in this thread. I would hate to introduce him and then have the thread turn into the $h!t fight that one new forum member (guess who?)has done to nearly every other thread involving Bull breeds. I have no dramas towards your posts Peter, i find them very interesting and well thought out and look forward to been able to ask you any questions in the future regarding the Mastiff breeds. Even though i have done a heap of research i'm sure i'll hit a snag or 2 along the way.
    Cheers.

    most dogs that a trained in pp are socialised very well, with other dogs and children. these dogs are trained to identify a threat and defend against or contain it. remember these sort of dogs, if not all dogs can sense your adrenaline 5 minutes before you get your first hit of it.

    I'm sorry LukeDG but you don't have permission to train your dog to attack anyone and take it out in public, just like, unless you have a license to, you aren't allowed to carry a gun.

    Assuming common sense is applied to sentencing, i am 100% for the increased liability for irresponsible owners - no matter what breed it is that attacks.

    And i agree with pugger, if you own a dog for protection, you're asking for trouble.

    Sean, fear not mastiffs are generally (not all) gental giants when brought up correctly, that said no dog should ever be treated as if it isnt capable of hurting someone, i guess no.1 rule of dog ownership.
    I would also go as far to say that a common defence in the pitbull argument by thier breeders is to introduce other breeds to the argument to reduce it being solely focused on the PB, and fair enough some of the dogs killing are crossed with the likes of mastiffs etc..
