Where i live there are a small group of us who take the time to train our dogs. Our dogs don't pull, run away, bite, jump up or be generally disobedient. Then...there are the BAD owners who treat their dogs like children. They giggle when they pull on the leash or jump on people. They say "Oooh, Pooch just likes/loves you" instead of correcting them. The worst i've seen today is somebody saying their dog just wants to play when it went for another dog in an aggressive manner
. I really wish some basic training/dog behavior lessons could be offered to new owners.
