I truly believe that all Dogs Deserve Freedom. That means that every dog has the right to be free and in order to make this happen, all dog owners have the responsibility to properly prepare, train and educate their dogs to give them that freedom.
Today's Featured Rescue is Bandit, the Jack Russell Terrier (JRT). Although it seems that the Grey Bruce Animal Shelter (where he is residing) doesn't have a lot to say about him except that "he is bright and high energy and is not suitable for a family with small children" ... In such a small sentence, they say A LOT. They are looking for a home with previous JRT experience.
I have found that far too many people put little dogs that pull on halters. Call it a pet peeve of mine, but all it does is encourage the dogs to pull more! I don't want to hear that "it's easier on their little necks" because that's just a cop out. If you take some time and train your little dogs not to pull, it's actually better for them to have them on a FLAT collar (if not trained to walk properly off leash)!
