    I don't see how people can't train their dogs. All it takes is a little patients. I have two dogs and I don't even use a lease for them when I take them outside. When I talk they listen. I have a Border Collie and a Chihuahua. Chihuahua's are bad for barking. I even got him trained not to bark. Well he can sing songs as well. It's all in how you train your dog. And by the looks of it this dog has yet to be trained!!!

    You can say that again. That dog is not the crazy one ... the owner is. I hope she sees herself on tv or whatever and sees how crazy she looks.

    I may get in trouble for this, but as to lack of training...I think it's an issue of people (some, not all) wanting a dog for the sake of having a dog - almost as an accessory. They do not want to put the effort into training a dog, caring for it, picking up after it, etc. In many places in Europe, I don't think leashes even exist. People there see their dogs behaviour as a reflection on themselves, and train accordingly. I remember eating in this beautiful restaurant in Caen; it was snazzy, at full capacity, and every basically every table had at least one dog sitting at it! Not that we noticed this until after our meal was done. The dogs sat patiently on the floor awaiting word from their masters. Dogs run along beside their owners who are riding bicycles. The dogs slow down before they get to a street, and if a squirrel crosses the dogs path, the dog looks for permission to run. Now, if I had the patience to train a dog properly, I would have one! But I don't, so I have kids

    Ya Sara your totally right.

    On another note I think it's much harder to train kids.

    Some breeds are easier some harder to train. None are impossible.

    If I'm not mistaken, she tells the cop guy that her dog "makes love like a man, but, can't have babies" - wtf?

    The dog is in total dominance and is likely trying to keep others from his "mate". I think the dog should be sent for rehabilitation and the owner put down.
