Dog RTA is still reportable as Chervil said Phil. It's cats that aren't. Are you still emptying that welsh canal by the way?
Nice to hear. Good luck on the new stretch.Yes mate still plundering it lol 20lb 2oz one day last week, have found a section on the Shroppie thats starting to produce some nice roach and perch. And on Tuesday going to try an area of the Shroppie l havent fished for at least 25 years so fingers crossed it will produce the goods.
Knocking a dog over stays with you forever. I still remember knocking one over when I was in my thirties. Didnt kill it. It ran off but, after knocking on a lot of doors I eventually found the owner. The dog made a full recovery I was told later. On this occasion the owner had put said dog in rear garden while a tradesman was working in the house. The dog then dug its way out and ran on to the road. Cant really blame the owner I dont suppose.
Ive had dogs all my life. The two I have now are my black springador gundogs. They are massively obediant. They have to be. If I tell them to sit and stay they would sit there until it went dark and then some. How is this ? By spending hours and hours and hours with them. Praise is what they love. Never hit a dog. That will have the opposite effect. They know the difference between work and play though. Just ask Wise Owl how my eldest dog retrieves an item out of our local canal. Its a sight to see.
Think that only applies to wild animals, dogs and livestock are different as they have a working value they're considered as property.The law says you’ve to hit an animal as avoiding it could cost a human life
My dad in the 80’s hit a lamppost and was avoiding a dog, he was told he should have hit it as the lamppost could have been a person.
I had a terrier before these two Mick. Talk about head strong. I don’t know who was the boss. Me or him. Him I think. He was well trained and knew every command but, it was always him that decided to obey or not. I think his reasoning was .... who picks who’s poo up ? Not me is it ? Therefore .... who do you think is the boss ? ???Tuppence is real good on recall etc for a terrier dog,
but there is no way that Id not have him on a lead anywhere near a road,
cars can be fixed, broken hearts cant
