PetLifeRadio.com - Animal Party Episode 79 Pitbulls & Dangerous Dog Breed Bans & Safety Part 1
Dec 29 16
Three brutal attacks on elderly couples near Vancouver by pit bulls sparks breed ban demands while in Montreal the SPCA got an injunction to stop a breed ban and the Province of Ontario has one in place. Many American cities and entire European countries have passed breed bans against pit bulls and sometimes other breeds too like Rottweilers, but do they work? Are pit bulls that different from other dogs? They are over represented in fatal bite statistics but is that stat relevant to the mutt you might meet at the dog park who looks like a pit bull? Deborah asks Stan these questions and points out that she’s experienced other breeds that more dangerous and met many pit bulls and pit bull crosses who are lovely. Dr. Stanley Coren explains the truth about pit bulls, Staffies, Rotties, Cane Corsos, Dogo Argentinos, German Shepherds, Dobermans, Jack Russels, behind the stats and stories and gives you solid advice for you and your kids on how to avoid being a bite victim. Is your dog kinda strange? Does he or she do something odd or weird? If you have any ‘why’ type questions about the behavior of your dog please send them to me and I’ll ask Dr. Stanley Coren your questions next time we are on-air in January.
