    I'm going to clarify because I know there's going to be someone who sees my post and leap to defend this person (probably a female I'm assuming from the tone of the post). The person seems like a complete nut job and the all-around incompetence should be criminal.

    These dogs were so beyond your control that they didn't listen to your orders?

    They were so beyond your control that you couldn't pull them off

    Yet you could fire a shot and not hit the dog they were attacking

    Since you're firing shots in your neighborhood . . why not a warning shot? There's absolutely nothing you could do but execute these dogs because of your own level of incompetence? That's seriously sickening

    I have a break stick hanging in my kennels, in my house, and in both vehicles, not to mention the ones we use while hunting. They're like fire extinguishers. You may never need one, but when you need it you'll need it bad and it better be there.

    The fuck does that have to do with anything?

    Catchrcall pretty much summed up the rest of your post.

    And do you realize you're responding to someone that posted this in 2007 and literally hasn't even seen this forum since 2009?

    Do you realize the forum is broken, and dates are messed up?

    @AdamC we do have a new server, but the date under the post is correct. You're answering a post from Aug 2015. Just an FYI, look at the date beside the poster's name.

    Totally agree with this! A wise man learns from the mistakes of others. Let this be a warning and a wake up call for every dog owner who usually leave their dogs unsupervised. I've always thought dogs couldn't kill each other (yes, because it's been implanted on my mind that they're too adorable to do that). This post really shocked me, my whole dogs-are-innocent-and-adorable idea was a lie. Although I'm always watchful with my dogs, this post made made me extremely cautious with them.

    When I leave I have put Boa in the crate inside the house Bruno goes in the back yard. I have 6 in a half feet block walls so no digging out. Bella gets to have the house to her self. When I'm home I only allow 2 at a time be together inside or out.break sticks mandatory. When I'm on vacation Boa goes to my uncle's my Mom takes care of the other 2..

    And even being extremely aware and cautious with our dogs, they can still live full and happy lives! :D

    Reading this confirms why my Loki will stay a single child. Who are all those people that judge for crating?? Where I live it's totally the norm and NOT crating a pup will give you looks. Loki is in a crate for 7 hrs while we are at work. I used to feel bad, but he is with us for the other 17 and he sure has a better life than he would've if he still was in the street. He goes in a crate for the night by himself (we both work night shift) and I'm pretty positive that he sleeps there. Sure beats him eating something bad while being loose in a house and dying. I let him out in the yard but he is never unsupervised, I keep my eye on him 100% and play with him there. We have dog thieves all over here, I am not risking someone stealing my pup.

    If you crate your dog, please be sure to be careful of the collar, tags getting caught on the crate and causing harm to the dog.

    Oh, we don't use a collar when he is inside. For walks he has a harness with his tags and such.

    I needed to read these. We seperated our dogs from the get go. Recently we started to mussel when they go outside. We do not have a fenced in yard but i never never leave them out side without the training collars and never alone. Our neighbors dont have dogs but im am still vigilant.
