Default Some common sense - finally

Here's to a girl's idea and a premier who has the sense to listen!

YAY little girl!!!! That is what I've been thinking a long time. Stop banning the breeds, and start making people earn the right to own these wonderful dogs!

The owner has to show some ability to handle a dog in this scheme. It's a wonderful idea; responsible breeders and rescue organizations have been screening potential owners for a long time and have been saying the same kind of thing.

It won't. Owners are the ones who do that. Always have and always will.

Should this come to fruition, hopefully, licensing (ie, screening potential owners) will eliminate potential owners who aren't committed to a dogs training and care for the duration of a dogs life.

It's a proposal for certain breeds is what I understand.

The one thing that worries me about it is who sets the standard? I'm not the typical large breed owner - I handle my dogs very differently than most, but my dogs are well behaved in public and able to go anywhere without me having to be concerned about them being inappropriately defensive.

The article states "aggressive dogs". I can only hope if this does work out that it's not based on "aggressive breeds" at all - but rather dog ownership in general. There's a lot of 'snappy' small dogs out there which are excused solely on their size - and as far as I'm concerned, they're equally unfit to own a dog as a person who allows a larger dog to bite. The fact is, if a person is going to make a lousy owner for a pitbull or rottie (I'm speaking in terms of training and behaviour), then they'd be lousy for a yorkie, toy poodle or Jack-Russell.

The last quote in the article sums things up perfectly.

' "The problem with the dogs is not the dogs themselves it's the dog owners." '

That was the mayor that responded to her. Not the premier. But it's wonderful. And i hope it goes provincial and then federal!
