Dangerous Dogs | Should the XL Bully be banned in the UK?Sep 11, 2023
the XL Bully, that dog has been responsible for a number of attacks and deaths over the last few years, just a little concept. Look, this particular dog was imported from the United States. They are absolutely huge and incredibly strong. I must say that I personally. I found them quite terrifying. I'd probably have to confess to the other side of the street if I saw one coming towards me. There have been calls now that that breed
banned. David, where are you? It's hard because you know my concern is that this breed. of dog is going to kill more people because apparently 10 people have died in attacks by this breed of dog, but we have to investigate it and say if the owners are to blame for all those looks or it is the breed itself, so I think.
We need to investigate this much further to determine if it is the dog or if the dog can be safe if they have good owners, are worthy owners, are poorly trained and do not control the dog in cases where there were. These, you know, terrible incidents, oh, it's a terrible name for a dog, isn't it Excel Bully? Obviously he says that it says a lot about the attitude of the owners, but it is always the owners who are responsible in this and not the poor stray dog. I'm against bigots, it's always Earth, yes I think
dogsjust have fights, some are better at fighting than others, but I think the type of case we're talking about here is adoption. of a dog as a kind of statement from the street um now um I have a Patterdale Terrier patterdale she is notoriously misbehaving and she is a little thing she looks like um Jack Russell a little bit bigger not much not much bigger than a Jack Russell Bonnie her She's 12 now.
She's got a terrible ankle, yeah, and she tends to bark at DOT men with beards, um, uh, and um, she's been in trouble with the authorities for this and the police came from Hereford once to give her a warning to Bonnie and they showed up and she rolled over on her back and showed them her belly and it was kind of like it kind of encapsulated the absurdity that they didn't really come out, they got it, that's why they're not going to take them out for a while . Seriously, then someone had a complex, so I guess your dog bit someone and they complained.
Yeah, he was kind of a liberal Dem Rambler and uh, he took on Bonnie and she took on her ankle, her left ankle. I think so, what was it? At the end of that story I need to know how well, they gave us a verbal warning. If it happened again then there would be no cemeteries for at least a week. If we have problems, we're going to have legal problems, but I mean, I'm personally against gangs and I think gangs are often counterproductive and you talked about if you saw an Excel thug coming down the street, you'd cross the street. , Well, that is.
There is no way to do it and the social message, it's not good if I cross the street they don't chase me and attack me anyway, but I think social stigma is the way to do this instead of legislation. I think there are some species of
dogsthat are already
dangerousdogs, honey, I think there are 10 species that are banned in this country, that to me is an untamable head, yes, but this one, you know again, I think which needs to be investigated a little more, but it's all over the board I mean, there is a real problem, well, um, let's go over very briefly Anna Webb is a canine behaviorist, uh, keep me company now, good evening, what do you think of this ?
I'm hearing the argument here that she's not the dog, she's The owner is right, yes, good evening Michelle. I agree. I think the problem is with the Excel
bully. It's not really a breed as such, it's a mix of many different large, strong dogs and has become the go-to type. To popular, I would say it's a status symbol and the problem with them is that they are a combination of bull breeds, which Clinton just rightly said. Some dogs may be easier to train than others. I admire you a lot. You have a Patterdale, they are not one of them. the easiest dogs facing an Excel
bullywho, for example, has never had a dog before, you know, it's a pretty dumb move.
I'm always, you know, really emphasizing that you
shouldbring a dog into your life, which brings great joy, but it has to be that way. relevant to their lifestyle, their experience and their accommodation, so on the Banning side, it hasn't worked, we have the
dangerousdog law, it hasn't worked, it was a piece of legislation back in 1991, we only have four breeds of band in the Now in the UK, since these breeds were banned, the goal of the Dangerous Dogs Act was to protect the public and stop incidents which we have seen a lot of lately, which I think is due to the pandemic people starting to think correctly. -An accessory now after the pandemic is to get a dog and not choose the right ones as just mentioned, but the dangerous dog law has not actually stopped dog bites at all and in fact they have simply increased and have increased to what it is now. in its record proportions, you know, 34 more at the beginning of this year than before the pandemic and dog deaths, which seems to me to be a great tragedy for the dog, have actually skyrocketed to about 18 in the last 18 months, actually, there you have it, this is a The conversation will continue, but Anna will use it as dog behavior.
The behavior is there, thanks.
