Gorsky said that the home did have working smoke detectors and a fire alarm, but neither went off until after fire crews arrived on the scene. Since the fire was on the outside of the home, Gorsky said, not enough smoke had traveled inside the home to trigger the alarms.

    No one said it about your dog. People who don’t train their dog properly end up with a dog that bites and is then untrainable. Also, nobody on earth has a dog that ‘would never turn aggressive’, the potential is in every last one of them.

    People must learn how to educate their pets. I think there’s no problem they “resist” to the bath… But it’s a problem when they show agression or even FIGHT with the owner because that means the dog feels that is in the same “degree”(alfa). Those TV shows about dog trainers who change the behaviour of dogs misbehaving are very interesting. You don’t need to BEAT your dog or use violence, you need to educate him. And that is achieved with simple procedures of dominance.

    I totally agree. Because this is a simple thing… But imagine you have a visitor and your dog gets hostile with that person in particular and you can’t control him… That’s an example of the need of control!
