That would be, disinformation. Atleast going by your fruitless calculations.
Listen, I understand your point about allowing people who know how to train a dog to be owners, I really do. My close friend is a personal dog
trainer, he just got back from back east where he was training. He's pretty good too. My Uncle, who I mentioned earlier, also is a very good dog
trainer. He never had any training, he has just spent his life training his dogs to hunt ducks.
The guys lab will dive to the bottom of a 10 foot pool just to get his rubber bone. It's amazing, and other than his little poodle, none of his dogs
have ever bit me. His little dog is just angry all the time. You know how those little dogs are, and yes they always get a pass.
Also, I realize that many Pit bull owners are thugs. I know because I hear about the attacks out here in Oakland that happen almost weekly. In this
case, it is the owners fault. They don't properly train the dogs, nor do they properly contain them within their own properties.
Here is my problem with your suggestion, it's that people are stupid. It's like the reason why there is a law that one must wear a helmet or seatbelt.
Plus, you have to take into account the fact that these would be trained individuals will also have family members, roomates and friends that at some
point in time will be trusted with the care of the animal. Thus, Paths the way for disaster.
I hope you understand that I comprehend your point. Let's stick to the discussion instead of getting personal with one another.
