Default Debarking in the News

Interesting...

"Itís used to quiet dogs -- and cats, some say -- who are too loud or incessantly noisy. Experts say dogs bark excessively for many reasons: poor training, boredom, social isolation, in response to external stimulation, to protect territory and because of anxiety or compulsive disorder."

I've "heard" a dog that's been 'debarked' bark, and it's definitely heartbreaking.

Mind you, can they do that to 6 year old nephew's that don't stop screaming? LOL

I find it interesting that the 2 women who started the petition have both adopted dogs who've been debarked. So much for it being a last resort to keeping the dog, lol. And if they no longer teach this procedure - that's what the article states - then that pretty much eliminates it as an option in the future.

Yep - if debarking is the 'last resort' - how did those dogs STILL wind up in a Rescue?

IMO - don't like the procedure. But I know others do. What I DON'T like, is some government entity wanting to creep into my house again, telling me what to do.

Now, if we could debark some of these politicans...

Yes. It's obviously not the dog's barking that was the problem in those cases.
