And this is another reason I keep asking for the Animals/Pets Forum!

First politely:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

And then a rant:

But still nothing.

Be a great addition to it tho.


Thanks

Greetings,

Yes indeed. I have now added to the petition on both threads so hopefully they will pick up on it and see the importance/interest.

Fingers X.

No, no difference. A dog being worked for the dogs enjoyment is not different that working a dog to enjoy commands and obedience as can be seen in the OP.

Hi,
As a farmer you have a need for your dogs, and as a meat eater I am grateful for the work that goes into that (I grew up and still live in a farming commuity). The dog in the film was imo taught to do those tricks for the amusement of the owner at the expense of the dogs health. Therafter my argument ends, dogs are intelligent and will learn many things but they walk on four legs - walking on thier hind legs is damaging.

Very true. That's why most people teach their dogs "tricks".



walking on thier hind legs is damaging.


Do you have a source on this? The links in your other post don't work. I have done quite a bit of research on the subject (I own 2 GSDs, a breed prone to hip dysplasia) and I can't find anything that supports your claim.

Hah! I love it!

I thought teaching a dog his left paw from his right was an achievement - this pup is on point all day. I'm gonna have to start making up some new tricks for mine lol.

I agree about the dog enjoying itself but it wont enjoy the pain when its hips are ruined from being taught to mis-use its hind legs

www.dog-health-guide.org..." target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="nofollow">http...://www.dog-health-guide.org/doghipproblem.html


"The investigation of a dog hip problem usually involves tests for a genetic condition called hip dysplasia (CHD), which is the abnormal functioning of the hips, and osteoarthritis. A veterinarian will do a physical examination which includes watching how your dog walks. Hip dysplasia in dogs is common in large breeds, but can be seen in smaller breeds such as Boxers


Its a miserable life for a dog (or any animal) that cannot ask for pain relief


I, too, was concerned when I saw some of the tricks this dog is doing -- especially the leaps and walking on hind or front legs. How many of those leaps ended badly before he perfected them? Slamming to the ground causes damage to the joints. Yes, he's very intelligent and, no doubt, enjoying himself but his human is impressing other humans at the ultimate expense of his dog. There are ways to ensure that the dog is active and enjoys a rich life without ensuring that he'll end up crippled. I wonder if the man would allow his children to do stunts like that (even if they could)?

I can understand the concern most dog lovers have over the well being of pets but

Don't you think you may be over-reacting a tad? Kids can't and dogs can. There's a big difference.

No, I don't think it's an over-reaction. Kid's can spring 20' off a trampoline and hope someone catches them. Would a sane parent allow it even if they're the one planning to catch the kid?

But you're comparing human abilities to animal abilities. No kidding a kid is going to get hurt if they jump 20' in the air. lol. I don't think the dog is doing anything thing that it isn't capable of.

Being able to perform the stunt and not suffering damage over time are two different things. Ask a vet.

What you're suggesting is animals which have a tendency to out perform other animals physically based on their genetics should not partake in any exercise or training which is suitable for that breed.

Well that escalated quickly. lol

I wrote a lengthy reply but then thought better of it. It comes down to this: I care about animals more than I care about entertainment. Enough said.

Who's been a bad bad boy then yes you are, you naughty boy yessss... Lmao... They won't have a clue, all just in the tone... You can do the opposite too. XD
