You were told a lot of misinformation.
If the kids were tormenting the dog ie throwing rocks at it, they are at fault.
(there are laws pertaining to this)
I smell BS.
rarely will a dog be required to be put down for nipping someone the first time.

I was told in no uncertain terms "Put the animal to sleep or we will". So i had to go and put my dog to sleep because of some stupid %$#@! kids teasing her. Since then i will NOT let my dogs out without a leash.

Idk if this is a forum for rich people but i dont know a lot of people with 10+ acres of fenced land. Yeah im sure ppl like that do let their dogs run loose. Why not? I would too, unless it was right next to an interstate or some other high risk area. If i lived in the heart of the city in an apartment complex would i let my dog run around loose? HECK NO! I live out in the country but theres a road right out front that has cars driving pretty fast.

City im in adopted a new law last year. Dogs cannot be leashed for more than 30 minutes. They have to be either in a fenced in yard or on a tether with 360 degrees of movement and no entanglements. So what did ppl do? They started letting their dogs run loose all over town. What happened after? Yep, dog bites galore.

All of our posts are opinion.

Working with dogs is not an exact science.

We are all different, the dogs are all different.

Even links are just opinion of others.

At no time did I intend to train Rip myself.
