The thing is when you live in a big city,unless your willing to drive,The only place to walk a dog is the local park,That many dogs running around unsupervised is just a boiling pot.No matter what breed is running round.Incidents will happen when we are all packed in like sardines.Dont help with young lads hanging type dogs from trees in full veiw of jo public.
To be honest i cant help but cringe through out this whole film, i do get what these kids are saying.... well almost between the Jamaican slang!! LOL It must be horrible being judged they way they are, i know what its like having people cross the road to avoid my dogs but i don't think this has done much to help the situation. I personally don't think dogs should be let off the lead in built up areas, but thats just my opinion.

Its a good video putting across the opinion of young people, that aren't scummy owners but I personally think the number of bad young owners out weighs the good. But this is a fault of the breeders, I have given 3 of my pups to young lads, they are 17, 20 and 21. Two of the lads I have known for years, they are family friends, but the 3rd contacted me for a pup. I asked him to bring his parents to my house when he came to see the pups and I spoke to both parents and the lad in depth about the care of the pup, I also got the parents word that they agreed with him having the dog and if he didnt look after it, they assured me they would. 2 years on and the young lad is still as excited about his dog as ever before, loves him to bits and regularly sends me pics of what is a very happy dog. I have literally thrown young people out of my house because I thought they were unsuitable to have a pup, I call them the "ya git me" generation. I think if there were stricter controls on who owned these dogs there wouldnt be a problem, but instead the government have made it worse by banning breeds and made them more appealing to the "ya git me" generation.
If you can solve the problem of knife crime then you could solve this The young fools getting their dogs and themselves into trouble are untouchable,the dogs are tools. I honestly don't see how you stop the knife crime,the young lads in sporty little motors driving like they are playing the scalectrix ,fighting dogs in phone boxes,etc. It is unfortunate that the poor dogs have become a part of this culture but i am not sure you can "fix" it because it is just that- and the youngsters you really need to reach dont give a damn about the effect they have on others or any respect for people or laws etc. The dogs,once again,are victims of circumstance. You cannot fix this with laws cause the twats hanging about in parks letting their dogs attack poodles etc have no respect for the law so as always the responsible ones keep on being responsible,the arses continue being just that
I think its a good film with a good message, and I also find it irritating there is never any mention of the older generation of bad dog owners I know of at least 4 grown men above the age of 30 who own rottweilers/German shepherds whos dogs are crazy aggressive towards other dogs and people and are proud of this fact. I can honestly say that were I live all the people around me who own SBTs are good owners and this reflects in there dogs.
well done to the youths of Fairbridge for making this film.
