John Fisher was a brilliant behaviourist. A friend of mine has just re written his classic book "Think Dog". He may well have been consulted on the Dangerous Dogs Act. Not sure he would have labelled any one breed as dangerous though. Those puppies may well grow up to be dangerous given the start in life they have had

Yes, Sandra, they all needed a cuddle. Are you a cat person? They do make good companions and are much easier to keep than dogs. But, of course, they do not guard the house or the motor home

I keep thinking about getting a guarding breed to guard Georgia. I have a lock on the garden gate and am thinking of getting cctv as a deterrent. This reminds me that MPs will debate the Pet Theft Reform Bill in parliament on Monday. If you haven't already done so then please write to you MP to urge him to vote for change to make pet theft a higher priority crime than simple theft of a belonging. The dog thieves are laughing at the law that is in place at the moment.

That made me think of our latest rescued dog Nancy when we first had her. We were walking on a local beach and there was a man walking his very large dog and this dog was very playful so no problem there but it kept bouncing into Nancy, next thing Nancy is all teeth and very aggressive toward the large dog and it backed off and I thought oh no have we ended up with another aggressive dog. Then I realized that although the dog was large it was in fact very young and Nancy was only teaching it some “manners”. We have had Nancy now for three years and she has never shown aggression towards anther dog apart from just that once.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

Perfectly normal behaviour for an older bitch to teach an adolescent some manners. He could escape her wroth any time he wanted Those puppies were helpless little babies and it is not normal for a mother to be so aggressive to her puppies. She needed to be able to escape them and she couldn't

I think we might be using human logic here Pat and not fully appreciating animal logic.

Not that I am in any way a pet expert.

When Odin our German shepherd was a 6 month old pup he met an Old English sheepdog on a beach who rushed at him and was very rough although did no harm to him other than bowling him over A few times before his owner got control

Odin grew into a powerful big boned dog, but would go nowhere near an old English sheepdog for the rest of his13 year life and showed anxiety whenever he caught sight of one

Odin however remained a gentle giant all of his life
