    this is so infuriating!!!! :mad: Has the dog owner no common sense? If my dog ever even attempts to attack, bit, growl at someone with no provoking.. that's all it takes for me. Not only should the dog have been euthanized the first time but they need to start 'writing' up irresponsible dog owners so that hopefully the law can take note if this is a pattern or habit of some sort. They will probably just go out an buy another dog. o_O

    Interestingly the victim is also a Pit Bull advocate and oh boy are the haters all over this. Last I saw they were very adamant about getting her gofundme campaign shut down being that it's a workman comp issue as well as the employers responsibly.

    I recall the owner having the dog muzzled but due to the stores policy it was removed. I agree that the owners negligence is the first utmost priority of concern. And as much as it's nice to hire a groomer, I'll pass. I do not let anyone other then myself to work with my dogs other then the veterinarian and staff. Let the groomer take care of those pampered ankle bitting yappy types and keep the Bulldogs out of the parlor. Common sense, I don't even take my dogs into the pet stores due to the paranoia and fear they must be confronted with. Couldn't imagine walking them into the groomers lol.

    The two things that come to my mind here is 1. owners need to stop using groomers to get around their dogs aggressive behavior. I've talked to so many people who take their dog(s) to groomers solely because their dog is too aggressive to handle. Then they complain when groomers stop accepting their dog.
    2. Why are there so many people taking short haired breeds to groomers? I understand some cant physically handle bath time, no matter the breed or dogs behavior, but I have also met plenty of young capable people taking their short haired breeds to groomers. Maybe I just have a different perception of easy bath time because I grew up bathing/grooming my parents Aussie, then a GSD, then a Great Pyrenees which was a daily task. My BBM just seems like a piece of cake now.

    The core issue here though is the dogs history being ignored, obviously.

    Yeah, they could have saved that girl and the dog so much drama with a pack of pet wipes. Not that the dog should have been anywhere near a groomers after attacking someone already.

    I know, they should be charged with attempted manslaughter.

    I cannot believe that the store's policy is to remove a muzzle while grooming. That is insane to me. Are the groomers there independent contractors? That is one way around worker's compensation. Either way, I knew the haters would jump on to story.

    The owner of the dog also neglected to tell the store that the dog ordered to wear a muzzle because he was vicious after the first bite incident he had. She told the store he was DA but "sweet as pie". WTH???? When Raven was alive, I did not sugar coat her aggression at all. There were people that didn't listen and still wanted to pet her. For their safety, and her sanity, I started walking her at 5 am and late in the evening to avoid idiots that think all dogs friendly, but never once did I ever downplay her aggression. I think that makes me the most mad about this.

    Amen sister. TBH my dogs maaaaaybe get baths twice a year anyway. Bull breeds aren't really smelly and don't need it. (some need wrinkles cleaned, but that can be done with unscented baby wipe)
    Nails has been a challenge with B. But we are working on it. I'm not about to take the easy way out and ship her off to the groomer. Plus, she trusts me more than a stranger and why would I ever think a stranger is going to be able to get her nails dremeled easier than I.
    I do B's ears once a week and we get all 4 paws done in about a month. My goal is to be able to dremel all 4 once a week too, but we just aren't there yet.

    This is exactly probably why they took him.

    I agree, one time is not forgivable, but accidents happen.
    Twice should never happen because that dog either needed to be quarantined to the home or PTS

    But you can get the nails done at the Vet if they are aggressive.

    I always take my dogs to the vet for their nails. No offence to groomers but the staff are usually just people that love dogs and aren't qualified to deal with problem behaviour as opposed to a vet where the staff are highly skilled and experienced with dealing with every behaviour imaginable. And as far as taking the muzzle off, if someone told me it was because a dog was DA but great with people I'd believe them and would probably take it off as well, you have no reason not to trust the owner at that point because they're giving you an answer that lines up with many dogs in the breed and you don't often come across people as selfish, stupid and negligent as these owners.

    My dog always goes to the vet for nails, grooming, etc. He's a biter. He is always muzzled at the vet.

    That's because you are a responsible owner and aren't delusional about JC being "sweet as pie".

    When we first got Tonka she was a rescue and we didn't know her at all. I told all Vets and Groomers to muzzle her and they didn't do it. It made me mad because I told them we did not know how she is with getting her nails done or how she is with other dogs. We didn't even know if she had a painful spot on her body, etc. They would decide on her temperament on their own.

    Nat that reminds me of the way I feel bathing a new dog for the first time, mostly adults, I'm always so cautious the first time because some dogs freak the heck out at bath time! Every time I lift a new dog into the tub I think to myself "this could be the day that I die" :P

    Groomers must feel similarly, and with stuff like this happening it sucks they can't trust owners to be honest of the dogs temperament.
