Iím going to take a risk here as everyone that is involved in this conversation I consider gentleman and scholars as well as my buddy pals.
Itís is obvious that one that has a tender heart for dogs and all .....S creatures can all of a sudden be a victim of getting their emotions riled if they believe an abuse is bring forced on a dog or any animal as far as that goes.
Is there anyone here familiar with the yearly event Iditarod dog sled race which is held every year in Alaska? If there is ever a case where itís easy to perceive abuse that a good candidate.
Being a K9 officer for over 20 years Iím sure that we put Dogs through training events that if had been filmed and released to the public we would have been crucified by a certain segment of the public.
I know for a fact that dog especially need and crave a task to preform, even one as simple as forcing us to throw them a ball.
There is no foul in working a dog or using the dog for work of competition events such as weight sled pulling events and yes there are injuries occurred, the same as in human Athletic events. However I can tell anyone that that dog in these events are loving every moment.
Where the foul comes in is when the human handle canít recognize that the animal is at its full capacity whether it be running, pulling, jumping, climbing etc. when this occurs itís time for the real men in this world to step it and stop it when it becomes abuse.
In our given situation here on this thread, I have taken the time to take a really close up look at the situation in the picture offered and I see no signs of a foul. The dog looks to be healthy and fit and facial expression looks like a dog content to be preforming his job.
Itís time for us to shake hands here and return to our corners😂
Yíall have a great day!!
