I didn't watch the videos, but the type of parents who allows their children to run wild and undisciplined will probably allow their dogs to run wild and undisciplined.

The more of this type of households you have, the more ill-behaved people and dogs you will have.

So in that sense there is a correlation.

Thanks for finding the video, Debbie.This man has good observations and I'd like to search for more videos.

About the US and UK having aggressive dog and kids, very interesting. Discussing it more for me would delve into the political which we cannot discuss. Time to research Belgium.

Many European countries place a lot more importance and funding in education. If the statistics show that their children are better behaved, and grow into better behaved adults, it's not surprising. I think better behaved dogs come from better behaved owners.

Poor temperament due to irresponsible breeding in the US could be a factor as well, but they must have irresponsible breeders in European countries too, right? Maybe it's not rampant to the degree it is in the US? Anyone have stats on this?

We used to joke about this at work all the time.....lady comes in with her kids and the dog for the annual checkup, kids are running around the waiting room yelling and pulling things of the shelves and mum is saying "sit down, don't yell, don't touch, stop running" all the while taking no action. Then she turns to the dog who is pulling on the lead trying to jump on people, knocking things over and she is saying "come, sit, down" all the while taking no action. We just used to have a little chuckle out the back and argue about who was the unlucky one going in to help the vet!!!!
