While we're discussing aggressive service dogs, dobermans, pit bulls, etc...

Quote:
Residents may not board dogs of any breed (including a mixed breed) that are deemed “aggressive or potentially aggressive,” unless the dog is a certified military working dog that is being boarded by its handler/trainer or approval is obtained by the Installation Commander in writing. For purposes of this policy, aggressive or potentially aggressive breeds of dogs are defined as a Pit Bull (American Staffordshire Bull Terrier or English Staffordshire Bull Terrier), Rottweiler, Doberman Pinscher, Chow and wolf hybrids. Prohibition also extends to other breeds of dogs or individual dogs that demonstrate or are known to demonstrate a propensity for dominant or aggressive behavior as indicated by any of the following type of behaviors: 1) Unprovoked barking, growling or snarling at people approaching the animal, 2) Aggressively running along a fence line when people are present, 3) Biting or scratching people, and 4) Escaping confinement or restriction to chase people.
I found the above on an official military website. It helps answer some of the questions from the previous thread. It also proves this neighbor's service dog is breaking multiple rules at once.

There are exceptions if the dog is a service dog.


I have always found it interesting and baffling that the Doberman is not allowed on Posts and Bases while the GSD is. The number of bites doing bodily harm in a study from the Doberman is 23 and the GSD is 113.

Thank you ... that was the question I was trying to ask. Why the Dobbie?? By and large most people don't even know they are around anymore??? I never saw a single Dobbie in San Jose population 900,000 at the time.

And I have only seen one in Dayton ... and she was hugh (113 lbs???) and a very sweet well behaved dog ... who was clearly not trained by the owner! She was on a flexi leash??? And wondering about to and fro at will, Rocky was in Place and she walked over to greet him ...yep no I got between them on general principle. But no growling or misbehavior by either dog. The owner clearly did not train that dog but the Dobbie was a sweetheart. OS and all ... she did the Breed proud!

I never got into "Dobbies" myself ... I view them as tall narrow Boxers with funny faces. Hardly Breed Bashing in my view?? I was merely curious as to what changed in "military housing" with "Dobbies??"

Ugh ...not a lawyer ... I find that confusing?? Is it a "Breed Ban" or is it a badly behaved "Dog" ban???

Army Replies, Just Following Orders ? But For Families, Either Live Off-Base, or Lose The Dog | Steve Dale Pet World


In 1996 the military privatized housing. Basically, housing is no longer under the auspices of the military despite being on Post or Base. My guess is a way to save money due to all the budget cuts the military has had handed to them.

Uh ... wow thank you! And that decision is truly both heartbreaking and despicable in my view!

If I chose to service my country ... I may lose my dog, if I have the wrong "Breed!" That flat sucks!!!!

A dog by its aggressive actions toward people shows that it is NOT a Service Dog. Doesn't matter what the owner says. The Department of Justice , HUD, and the Department of Defense are all in accord on this.

What about aggressive actions toward domestic animals?

"No right thinking human being" would disagree with that.

If a dog is functioning as a "Service Animal" ... people should not know the dog is there aside from seeing him.
