    To add to what Mister said, it seems like many attacks are from dogs with previous aggression issues, like the Virginia woman's one dog. Many of these incidents could be avoided if people would euth human aggressive dogs, especially ones they can't handle properly. So yeah, judge the deed, the first time it occurs don't let it go until someone is killed.

    I'd be surprised to find accurate reporting on shelter dogs being responsible for incidents that make the news.

    I know one rescue that does cull unstable dogs. It is so hush-hush because if word got out, they'd probably lose their funding. Thing is, "fur-mama public" views culling unstable dogs just as horrific as the situations the dogs come from a lot of times.

    Just a random question, Mister. Was a manbiter DQ'd from the box?

    Coming from firsthand experience, this is a hard, hard thing to do. But, I think it is the only responsible one. If one takes on an animal, any animal, they need to understand the risks that are associated with that animal and be able to think logically about the potential dangers the animal poses and act responsibly and accordingly.

    You were not ignorant of your dogs potential, seems like a lot of people force themselves to believe their dog can be 'rehabilitated'. Reading your comments it didn't seem like you were trying to make your dog friendly toward all humans and other dogs. I don't believe Raven was aggressive toward you either, right?

    I could of swore i read somewhere that you get DQ'd in an official match if the dog bites the ref or the other handler.

    I tried to work with her, BAT training, counter-conditioning, meds, the whole 9. It was more to bring down her level of aggression than to curb it. If I could get her to ignore, I was happy. I never had this fantasy that she was going to love every dog and human and that I could love the aggression out of her. I knew it's who she was and worked with what I had.

    She was never aggressive to me or the kids. I literally mean it when I say I know she would have walked through fire for us. She was that loyal. It sucks because she assumed everything was a threat and felt the need to always step in.

    I think there is always a first bite, and a lot of times that bite goes brushed under the rug than less than what it is. People blame everything but the dog. And sometimes, it's just the dog.
