    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 :eek: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!!!!!

    the problem is so many people watch that bloke and copy his methods. I am continually being told to do daft things with my dogs by friends that have watched him.

    Nor would i.:D. And what you saw today show's it's not just the dog being pinned down that can be affected:mad:
     
  9. I have always been of the belief that anyone that feels the need to pin a dog down is not fit to own a dog! I would grab and hold by the neck , my own dogs only!! and only if te situation /circumstances allowed!! but thats as far as I would go! and to those who say that the mother dog pins the littler down - all I can say is WATCH!!!

    Excellent Post Nat!

    I totally agree with you and I am also concerned about this. I have said one day someone WILL get seriously injured by pinning a dog when there is absolutely no need for for it.

    It will happen it's just a matter of time.

    Very possible.
    I think it's really sad that dog owners think they have no other choice than to copy this idiot on the TV.

    There was certainly no need for it...the dog clearly got even more distressed by being forced to the ground after being fought for a couple of minutes on the floor. The guy was basiclly on top of the dog trying to grab hold of it :(
