The politics of Dog are are mainstream again with animal experts calling for improved education of dog owners following several young folk being seriously injured. It is easy to forget that 600,000 dogs never bit anyone today.


Usefully the upcoming talk 'on canine aggression' by visiting Veterinarian and Internationally acclaimed Canine Behaviourist Dr. Ian Dunbar will help bring some of that required discussion to the public and political ear, and hopefully to NZ media always so eager to report.
