Now another one....bloke killed after 2 dogs attack him.

 

This is all very coincidental. But maybe it's to do with all UK pets/animals having to be "chipped" - something with the tech is triggering a sort of kill-switch that turns them violent? Otherwise it's the usual P R S driven by an agenda....again.

 

I think Pitbulls are adorable, but I've never been savaged by one.

 

"The Nanny Dog"

 

A nanny dog is a dog that is great with children — gentle, forgiving, affectionate, and watchful. Although there is no official “nanny dog” designation, certain dog breeds are often referred to as such because of their temperament around children. When properly trained and socialised from a young age, Pit Bulls make excellent “nanny dogs” or “babysitter dogs.” Pit Bulls love their people, no matter their age, and have a zest for life and play that children especially can appreciate.

I agree with you on all this. It training and owners and treatment that make dogs dangerous.

 

My ladies dad was savaged by a pit bull a few years ago. He was walking one for a friend and decided to throw a stick for the dog. Totally normal thing to do. The dog unfortunately had been beaten by its owners. Something my ladies dad was not aware of. Chewed right into his arm and cheek.

If they shot the arsehole owners it might make looking after an animal a bit more important.

For my sins, I was a parcel courier a few years back. One house I regularly delivered to had the yard separated with a fence down the middle holding a huge Rottweiler. This dog used to go bananas every time I walked up to the door and I often had a fear the fence wouldn't contain it much longer.

 

However, one day the owner told me that the dog had been like that ever since the postie had hit it over the head with his clipboard! Immediately recognising the problem, I left my clipboard in the van for every future visit and instead took a handful of treats for the dog. We became great friends and it was a lovely, placid dog ever since.

 

Dogs forget nothing, and they have the same anxieties we have.

 

Related, but nothing to do with dogs, is the story of the young man that suffered anxiety attacks when interviwed for jobs by women with blonde hair. It turns out his sister used to whack him over the head when he was very young with her doll, which happened to have, you guessed it ... blonde hair!

Yep they’re keeping the narrative fresh  and alive with anything and everything.

 

The plandemic worked so well, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

 

I read somewhere we’ve been trained like dogs to respond to this stuff, and it’s true, it’s a Pavlovian response mixed with punishment and reward.


Who knows what or when the next one will be, but there’s a force at work that wants us to keep it at the top of our ‘legitimate fears’ list

As you mention that; I have been meaning to share that I've noticed 'dog whistle' being used a lot these last few months, especially when the media discuss politics. It always sounds like one of their in jokes. Somebody somewhere knows that they're pulling on our strings, and also that sounds / frequencies are used to manipulate us. 

 

Just sharing these posts from July as I always wonder if anything else is triggering the dogs, especially as they can see, hear and sence things that we can't. 

 

In my original post I was musing about the term 'dog whistle', and the use of dog whistles. I always wonder what animals make of what's going on.

Too many roadmen and drug dealers with those American Bully dogs, and naive women that can't control them. It's almost a meme at this point about how they commit a disproportionate amount of attacks, which doesn't surprise me if they're bred for fighting. Screw them and shitbulls.

 

 

There's a clip of some women being dragged by her own dog. Please don't get a dog if you're not strong enough for it. Even a lot of men struggle with these savage breeds.

There are a few of these type of dogs near where i live, and sadly they are owned by people who are a little unfriendly. I keep my distance because they are often not on leads.

Does being able to hear a dog whistle make me a dog? 
 

Anyway, I’ll think you’re right, something is triggering dogs and other animals in general to treat humans worse.

 

It could be something to do with EMF radiation, certain mechanisms or neurons being bypassed, maybe that’s why the future maps are divided into human zones and wild zones, even a squirrel would attack a human with murderous rage in the future.

 

Or maybe not, I’m being a bit silly.

My thoughts exactly. The dogs aren't the problem, its the way they're reared and treated which makes them act like this.

 

When I was a little boy, my mum used to take me with her to go see a friend, who had a huge Alsatian / German Shepherd.

 

Absolutely soft as shit, wouldn't hurt anyone. The dog would let me sit with her in her kennel. Loved kids. If she saw children walking past the front fence, she'd go bouncing down to the gate - well the kids would run off terrified but the dog only wanted to play with them!

 

It is my opinion that many people have these 'bullys' or other kinds of similar dogs not as 'loveable family pets', but as guard dogs, or some kind of 'status symbol', trained to behave the way they do in order to 'intimidate' people.

 

Cowardly 'hardmen' who hide behind a 'nasty' dog.

This has been building over several years. I took a look at a Wikipedia page about dog attacks in the UK last year. The stats go year by year. The Bully is bad news IMO. I'm into animals and pets but cannot condone having Bullys in society looking at their history. 

They come from the Pitbull, the most notorious dog. Yeah, most will be docile and safe, but they are specifically bred for fighting. That's really not good DNA / genetics to have around an unsuspecting family. 

Bring back dog licences and responsible ownership with harsh sentences for criminal use of dogs. 

And yes - chip all dogs and keep a proper up to minute database. 

People, especially children need protecting from thug owners and GMO dogs. 

 

Nature / Nurture....? 

A bit of both, so best to be safe.

Maybe it’s harsh but if all dogs were muzzled in public it would reduce all deaths. Inside is a different matter.

This is too true, 

 

I used to work at a place that had a dog used as a security incentive.

 

Deep down she was a lovable dog but she was reared by travellers who abused her since she was a puppy, and in her adult life she would bite and attack anyone who got too close.


She associated humans with pain, so defended herself appropriately.


After getting to know her she would let you stroke her but once in a while she’d bite your hand and draw blood, an old reflex.

 

Her breed is usually only used by the military in Europe. Super dangerous but really a big softy just wanting to be loved.

Not a bad idea. 

Something has to be done. 

I'm not a fan of rules, regulations and laws but people are actually dying and also being permanently harmed. 

I don't know why 'they' are suddenly focusing on this problem. If you spend 15 minutes online looking around you'll see it's been a big issue for a while now..

I vaguely remember something to do with the great reset, or something similar. It was suggested that pet ownership was harmful to the environment and so would need to be removed in future.

 

Im not a fan of rules etc either. Decent people end up paying for bad behaviour of others. At minimum a massive prison sentence even if you have a dog dangerously out of control.

If you're caught with a lethal weapon, there are consequences.. 

Some breeds of dog are provably, by statistics, to be much more lethal than others. 

 

If this is a dirty tactic to stop all pet ownership then all we can do is fight for common sense, if that is at all possible.

It's not the breed that is dangerous, it's the owners. The only reason the so called fighting dogs are high up in the statistics is because they are popular by the idiots that wants an aggressive dog. If you ban those breeds they will just destroy some other dogs. The owner should be 100% responsible for everything their dog does, and if they can't control them they shouldn't be allowed to have a dog.

I'm pretty sure you could train a Jack Russell or a Chihuaha to be aggressive and attack people if you really wanted.

 

In my opinion, dogs are only as bad as their owners.

 

Let us not forget that the vast majority of dogs in Britain are trained and reared to be harmless.

 

Maybe the onus should be placed more on the dog owner.

 

If you own a dog, you should be held responsible for its actions. If your dog attacks and kills someone, then you should be held responsible.

Charge dog owners for manslaughter.

 

It's the same logic that should be applied for people with feral kids. You raised them that way, take some responsibility.

 

Amazingly, we're all so open to having dangerous dogs 'put down' if they're a danger and menace to others, strange how we treat animal life so differently.

Sounds good in theory but I think it's hard to put into practice. If we wait until a dog has attacked someone before we hold them responsible, then the damage is already done, isn't prevention better than cure?   If we make people responsible before their dog injures someone, that requires a huge bureaucracy and surveillance/monitoring of all dog owners to check up on them rather like with car drivers. Using a sledgehammer to crack a nut kind of thing. 

 

I do think some dog breeds are naturally more aggressive and harder to train, just like some other animals have more dangerous breeds. I'm ok with having a line drawn somewhere; like with other pets such as cats there's a limit on how big you can have them unless you have a zoo.

This is true one year I'm sure the chihuahua was the most aggressive in terms of attacks. I'm not joking either, might not be the most lethal, but aggressive. However I am on the fence that dogs are only as bad as their owners. Certain breeds are more aggressive than others. It often is the case it's the owner though.  

 

I've said it before on here my grandads always owned greyhounds, up to 7 I believe over the years, (I think it happened 4 times to 4 different greyhounds) were attacked by German shepherds. One greyhound, impy had to be put down after a month, (she should have been put down as soon as we took her to the vet, but the scummy vet decided to get some more money and keep her going.) The lady walking the German shepherd was quite well spoken and not a "scummy type" (I'm working class so not being a snob but you get what I mean.) Ironically, although lethal it happened so quick my grandad didn't realize how bad it was until he got to the car.

 

My grandad called the owner but just to say the damage was quite bad, he refused to report her because he didn't want the actual dog being put down, but he was did tell the lady she might want to muzzle the dog..

 

The other 3 times were less lethal and just stressful. I was there one time, a young couple had the German shepherd off its lead and it decided to pounce on our male greyhound and starting taking chunks out of him. I was only about 10, but my grandad went absolutely beserk at the owner, think he said something along the lines of he is going to get a gun and shoot "that thing" this was out of anger and he wouldn't have meant this as he was an animal lover, and of course the owner should have had the brains to have it on a lead if they knew it was aggressive my grandad was shouting and swearing at them, luckily a man walking the dog told this couple to just go.

 

What always struck me was they were all attacked when they were old, Izzy the greyhound was quite a big dog and could have put up at least a bit of a fight, or even run... not that they would be a match for something as powerful as a German shepherd. Not sure if it's some sexual instinct the elder dogs gave off. Luckily Izzy was alright despite the blood pouring. Soppy old dog he was but lovely. 

 

Despite this I do think German shepherds are beautiful dogs. Our last greyhound we met a few people in the woods regularly with German shepherds we were always a bit careful for obvious reasons but it was nice to see them get along.

 

Rottweilers with the right owners seem really lovely dogs, like cuddly bears. I find them quite beautiful as well. Staffordshire ball terrors seem people dogs to me, they don't seem to get on with other dogs is my experience.  

 

The last greyhound we had was terrible with other dogs when I was walking her, it was scary and I put a muzzle on her. The times I didn't I had the pull her away to avoid her snapping. After 3 months she went from being unfriendly and aggressive to being almost too friendly with other dogs. 

 

Personally I don't see the point in owning a dog if it's not going to get on with other dogs anyway. I like to see them socialise. Don't get me wrong there's times when I just want to go for a walk without meeting the normies, but these thick c*** who drag there dog away everytime they encounter another dog walker doesn't help and makes them aggressive. I remember walking Holly around the woods one morning and a man who I had bumped into a few times always used to almost hide with his Jack Russell saying he was aggressive, I could tell by his body language he was fine, he starting wagging his tail and I stroked him and our two dogs met and got on. "he's never done this before" I wanted to say to him you never gave him the chance mate.

They've managed to get a curfew on domestic cats in Australia, with an overload of information about how cats are wiping out native animals, cats are seen in a very bad light. 

Not long for the domestic moggies in Oz.. 😕
