Dogs Meeting Described

"One of the more common reasons a dog becomes dog aggressive is because that dog has been attacked by another dog.

Pet owners need to understand that once their dog has been attacked or even badly scared by another dog thier pet dog will be dog aggressive its entire life.
This only needs to happen one time to become a life long problem".

[FOR EXAMPLE: Suzanne (My Little Dog Training Owner) took her 3 year old Service Dog (Wyatt) to Wal-Mart one day.
A "fake" service dog (pet wearing a purchased a service dog vest online) attacked Suzanne's Service Dog.

Subsequently, Wyatt never recovered and had to be retired. This is a great emotional and financial loss (the cost of trained Service Dogs range from $35,000 to $50,000).]

Pet owners always need to be aware of their dogs personal safety.
They should never allow their puppies [or dogs] to be around strange dogs.
To do so is the same as playing Russian roulette with their dogs mental stability.

If their puppy [or dog] is attacked, they will then probably now own a dog aggressive dog.

The same goes for all pet owners who take their dogs to dog parks.

There is simply no way knowing if one of the dogs in that park has dominance or aggression issues.
"I have owned, trained and bred dogs for 45 years. I have trained protection dogs and police service dogs since 1974."
- Ed Frawley (the owner of Leerburg) - *1

"If there is an aggressive dog at the park and it attacks your dog,
you [WILL] now have an aggressive dog,

because one dog attack is all it takes to change a happy go lucky dog into an aggressive dog."
- Ed Frawley (the owner of Leerburg) - *2
