I agree TOTALLY. In fact, after work Friday, I went to our local PD to suggest some sort of seminars on this topic. And called a few local vets with whom I have ties to do the same thing. (Didn't contact AC in this area, as I have little, if no, respect for them here.)
But it's not just the cops that need to be educated - it's the population en masse. What we, as dog owners, should be responsible for. And for which we should be educated. Stop the mind-set where we blame everyone else for our woes. And take the initiative up front. If you don't like the way things go in your town, district, country, either be part of the solution, or move.
I want my house safe from criminals & rogue cops. I want me & mine safe. But that means *I* have to take precautions, as well. I cannot leave the welfare of me, my hubby, our cats & our crazy GSD in the hands of others. If I do everything possible to keep us safe & STILL something happens - mybad. If I do nothing but blame others while something else happens - mybad time 1,000.
Jakoda - see, that's an example. The original juice of the thread got "lost". It should not have been. Perhaps the moderators could take a look at that & attempt to bring us back on track. Then again, if we're all adults, why does it take a mod to tell us? Don't they have better things to do than babysit us?
I'm just sayin'...
