ALWAYS FIRST QUALITY EVERY PRICES MOW. 19th TUBS. 20th WED. 21st Kennel Chatter By MARK L. NELSON Just what is a vicious dog? How would you describe one? Would it be a dog that bites a stranger when he tries to get in your unattended car, or when someone walks in your back yard or house when you are not there, or a dog that breaks his chain and nips a teasing youngster? I would venture to say that most bites occur in many similar situations. We can play word games and say is it viciousness or just being protective. All dogs will bite if irritated enough and particularly if it involves protecting what he believes is his. Many dogs roam the streets of Del Rio. Of course, you know my feelings on this . Most will leave you alone if you do the same thing to them. Very few dogs trust strangers and for you to touch a strange dog is just asking for trouble. What about children? Naturally, the pre-school children haven't learned the right and wrong of dogs but at , that age their every action has to be monitored by the parents anyway. As for the school age children, they should be told and heed your advice. After visiting several dog shows with a dog I became quite disturbed with the lack of supervision on the part of the parents; it seems they didn't mind letting the youngsters put their hands in any dog crate. Certain breeds already have a reputation for being "protective." The majority of the breeds are in the Working Group and in my personal opinion, the smarter breeds. This may be subject to debate but when trainability enters in you'll find this group taking the trophies. Of course there are other breeds that do well in obedience but with their extreme popularity in the states today, they can't help but have a large number attaining obedience degrees. Dogs have personalities like people, some like to be cuddled and others like to be left alone. As far as strange dogs are concerned the best suggestion I have for you is just ignore them. If a dog attacks unprovoked then I will admit he could be called "vicious." What makes it that way in the first place? It all leads back to the owner, how he cared for, fed, and trained the dog. Possibly the animal led a sheltered life and never was exposed to the things outside his kennel or fence, or possibly like some humans, may have a mental problem. Sounds silly but this does happen and the matter should then be handled accordingly by taking it to the vet and have it put to sleep. .Actually, I would first suspect rabies and take the necessary precautions. When individuals categorize something such as a vicious dog with a particular breed or associate it with all dogs that ?run loose, he may have some kind of a problem himself.
