    I wouldn't be surprised if there is no bull breed in her at all. Take that Quebec!

    Everyone has brought up really good points. Besides the watch me command, I'm hoping a mod will post the L.A.T. link. It stands for look at that it helps reactive dogs by teaching them it's ok to look at the squirrel, other dog, etc. I think it would be useful. I'd really try to find someone who made it through the class you're currently in. If you can't, tranquilizer for you and the dog before class, is one way to deal with this nonsense! They really do sound like they want to either make you go broke or set the dogs to fail, as the others mentioned. Regular BSL is bad enough, yours is total BS. I have it here in my city it's very similar to yours, but no classes or vet they choose. Maybe you can stop by the vet and ask if they'll at least show you the DNA test, not give you a copy just let you see it. Are there any chat rooms or FB pages that talk about this? People who've been through it or groups trying to fight it? We have a lot of them here. I'm just throwing things out here, hoping something can help.

    I just posted this on another thread, and it dawned on me to tell you. Go to You Tube and watch Dr. Ian Dunbar. He shows you how to work with a fearful dog along with many other useful videos. Google Dr. Sophia Yin (R.I.P.) to go to her website. You can read her positive training techniques. This way you can both watch and read by two of the best.

    I realize this is an older thread but I'm very interested in an update.

    I live in BC, Canada and I'm disgusted that some provinces have such ridiculous BSL.

    I'm in BC as well and I'm not sure if you know this, but due to the 2 recent and very publicized "Pit Bull" attacks, there are a lot of people pushing for a province-wide ban. So far online polls are showing around 88% of people are opposed to a ban, but I highly suggest you contact local news outlets and provincial officials, as I am doing, to ensure this doesn't happen.

    Thanks for the heads up, I had no idea.

    Hopefully this isn't piggy backing on the thread, but I live in Vancouver and the bylaws define an aggressive dog as:

    "(a) a dog with a known propensity, tendency, or disposition to attack withoutprovocation other domestic animals or human beings, or
    (b) a dog which has bitten another domestic animal or human being without provocation;"

    The bylaws say that aggressive dogs must be muzzled when in public. Do you know if that include pit bulls or pit bull mixes?

    Burnaby (a neighboring city) recently held a vote to remove BSL against pit bulls, but it didn't pass. In Burnaby, all pit bulls must be muzzled.

    Pit bulls still a vicious dog in Burnaby - News - Burnaby Now
