I love the picture and the sentiment but I would take issue with the second paragraph "some do not know right from wrong" etc . That is moral judgement which dogs do not have . This idea I hear all the time , and it is owners with this thought that often inflict "abuse" whether it is being held down to submit - till they understand , being banished (isolated) till they understand , be humiliated by having garbage tied around their neck , till they understood to not raid the kitchen waste bin, or that they should understand which people you like and which you don't and act accordingly - meanwhile the dog is operating in-the-moment , as always, and fending for his feeling of self preservation.
these are things I have had to have discussions with when owners needing help with issues, or even slipped out when someone comes over as a potential owner of one of my pups . (not!)
