    Default Poodle Was Mauled in at an Off Leash Beach

    Another good reason to keep your dogs on leash I think in off leash areas, poor poodle!

    How did I know that the article would include this though....

    She said the dog, believed to be a Staffordshire bull terrier, repeatedly attacked hers within 2m of her small children, who had to be stopped when they initially tried to go to Pepe's rescue.
    And another dipshit owner as well that didn't seem to care.

    That is a really horrible experience for all involved, I hope the children recover emotionally from it.

    She said the mauling had traumatised Pepe, who is still recovering, as well as her children.
    I am sorry but when your dog doesn't require vet treatment it isn't a "mauling". The whole article doesn't even say the poodle was actually injured in the attack.

    Now that you mention it, it doesn't does it.

    I would say it is because there was actually no bite marks left on the dog, it was probably more of a "scrap" then anything else ie: the Staffy was telling the Poodle off, if the Staffy was serious Poodle would be seriously wounded. The Poodle was possibly eyeballing the Staffy. When you are only getting the story from one side it is always going to make the other side look guilty and themselves and their dog innocent.

    3 sides to every story, yours, theirs and the truth.

    Using the word "maul" in a story like this is ridiculous.

    The requirement for having your dog off leash in an off leash area is that you have control over them. Which clearly this owner did not have.

    I had a dog who could get narky with other dogs (never bit though), but I could always call her back and I never let her go up to a dog on leash, even in an off leash area.

    Every council has their own rules, but I think the definition of "effective control" would be very similar for all of them. This is the Port Adelaide Enfield one I found through Google:
    "Dogs must be under effective control* at all times
    *Effective control means your dog is close to you and can be controlled with voice command. If you don't think you could call your dog back under distraction of other dogs or other people, please do not take your dog off lead."

    So if your dog is well socialised AND you have near perfect recall, off leash areas are great.

    The poor dog and poor kids though. Would have been very traumatising for them. And for the mother who was unable to help her dog because she had to protect her kids. And what a d*ckhead the owner of that other dog is. To verbally abuse those people when he allowed his dog to do something like that. He is exactly the sort of person who should never be allowed to own another dog as he clearly cannot and will not make sure his dog can be trusted in public.

    I was thinking about that just as I hit the submit button!

    My old dog got into a few scraps in her day. She was a bully and also seemed to just bring out the worst in some other dogs - I know now it was lack of socialisation. But it was all sound and bluff, no one ever got hurt. Until the day she tried to defend her food bowl from a dog who used to belong to a homeless person and she didn't back off when he went for her. She had puncture marks all over her body - the worst one being the tip of her ear. The blood splatters on the wall made it look like I slaughtered a few pigs in there! And I was staying at someone else's place!!! She was fine though.

    I completely agree!

    In a related article they asked...

    "Should fighting-dog breeds be banned?" Of more than 1500 votes, almost 75% have said "Yes".

    The dog in the display picture looks just like Harley (minus the muzzle)

    Yes sound and bluff is not unusual it is more posturing and bullying then anything and that is what this incident sounds like.
    Not saying the Staffy (if that is what it was) is blameless and the owner certainly needs to keep his dog on lead from now on and do some more training with the dog (but doubt that will happen).
    You will certainly know when dogs are really "going for it", because there will be blood, lots of it, it is usually quiter because the attacking dog isn't making sounds, silence in the case of dogs is always more dangerous then noise.
    Your dog sounds like she was just a little rude ie: didn't have an older dog to teach her what good manners are. Also that happens a lot, dogs will often bully and then one day a dog being bullied won't put up with it and a fight breaks out.
