um, i would love to hear an explanation on why you think your argument explains genetic predisposition. it's hard to debate with you when you haven't read the source material you're speaking about. in the past 10 years many studies have come out proving that most BSL is based on dog behavior myths for exampleSeriously, you people need to read up on genetics.
Your lack of knowledge on this subject is disturbing when you are so rude to people who actually take the time to get into this stuff.
Hmm, I wonder why people don't come to this forum anymore...
I'm going to go away for a few months again.
THIS is why some of us have an idiotic stereotype view on americans...
Myth One: Some Dog Breeds Are Inherently Aggressive
It has been said that some breeds, such as the rottweiler or the American pit bull, are inherently aggressive and therefore dangerous. This is not true. No dog breed is inherently aggressive. All dog breeds can display aggressive behavior if mistreated, abused or frightened.
Dogs may become aggressive out of fear. Dogs may also become aggressive when they are abused by those who desire aggressive guard or fighting dogs.
Myth Two: An Aggressive Dog Cannot Be Re-Trained
This is also untrue. Socialization and obedience training can help your dog learn to be open with other dogs and people. Psychotropic medication may help your aggressive dog begin the retraining process.
Myth Three: Agressive Dogs Are Too Dangerous to Handle
Some dog breeds may exhibit behavior so aggressive that professional training is required, especially if the dog has been very harshly mistreated. However, most aggressive behavior, such as barking and attack posing, can be retrained by the owner who has sought sound professional advice.
i'm trying to engage you because clearly we disagree, i'm not trying to be rude.
i hope when you come back you'll be able to listen to both sides of the argument and contribute, or if its too difficult to read a long post... start your own thread, i'm just saying
i'm still confused as to what happened that was so offensive.
