Take responsibility for your dog

There’s so much in the media about dangerous dogs and dangerous breeds, but we don’t hear so much about dangerous owners.

In my opinion, there is no such thing as a dangerous dog. Intentionally or unintentionally, a dog is what you make it.

Some people gulp when I say I’ve got an American Bulldog, all they see is teeth and muscle, which I find really sad.

No breed should be labelled by misconceptions and ignorance.

My AMERICAN BULLDOG, Tyler, is the most loving, affectionate, loyal, comical and cuddly dog I could ever wish for and I’m proud to be his mum. He’s come through a lot of trauma and uncertainty in his life and I’m so grateful that I got to adopt him and give him his forever home.

I know his likes and dislikes, can understand his doggie ways of communicating and get my messages across to him in a way that he understands.

As a responsible owner I have an obligation to him and people around to make sure that he behaves acceptably and safely.

We work together as a team.

It’s not rocket science!
