BBC Three screened a documentary last night with the above title.

In it, Rickie Haywood-Williams meets the young men who take dangerous dogs onto the streets and asks whether dogs have become the new weapon of choice. He discovers that some owners deliberately train and abuse their animals to make them vicious attack dogs, and learns that the most iconic and feared dog of all, the pit bull, is back on our streets.

You can view the whole documentary on the BBC's website:

BBC - BBC Three Programmes - My Weapon Is a Dog

It was shocking to see what goes on in some of our streets. And really makes me wonder what goes on in these people's heads. Surely a normal person doesn't do the things you see described in this film.

I saw it and didn't like it. None of those idiots had any idea how to properly look after a dog with the exception of the guy with the rottweiler who was just amazing. But from asking people its very hard to train an attack dog and make it aggressive even the police and Schutzhund dogs aren't trained to be aggressive they'd be really bad at their job if they were. It was hugely exaggerated but its the BBC they're not famous for making sensible documentaries about dogs.

Yes I saw your post last night so I watched it on BBC i-player, It was awful how anyone in their right mind would teacher a dog to attack is beyond me, I just hope if they do attack it's their owners they turn on.

And that puppy at the vets, that made me cry. I just wish they find it's owner and they could lock them up and throw away the key and let the other prisoners lose on them.
