Today i witnessed how dangerous and unpredictable pinning down a dog can be and will most likely be...... it was scary to watch and i hope that those who use this imo very unprofessional way of controlling a dog have a think about it if the risk of getting seriously injured is worth it!!!! Two dogs... on the lead (i still dare to think what would have happened if they would be off the lead hmy: ) One of the dogs started showing aggression towards another dog, i look around and see the owner wrestling with its dog on the ground for about 2 mins, as the dog refused to be grabbed hold off, until the owner managed to grab hold of its neck and pinn it down on the ground for several minutes. The dog pinned down stopped moving eventually BUT now this pinning down triggered the other dog (from the same housohld) in a very aggressive way showing high aggression towards the owner which was busy pinning the other dog to the floor. It wanted basicelly go for the man and luckily it was on lead held by the mans partner. This was a very dangerous situation and could have quite easily escalated in something alot worse so please BEWARE that pinning a dog down IS VERY DANGEROUS and can result in u or people around u being bitten and injured very badly. I seriously hope this opens the eyes of some owners out there which use this technique without putting any thought of the high consequences behind it!!!!!
