Yanking a dog off the ground using a leash is abuse, not training.

Choke chains? Bark collars? Muzzles? Leg hobbles? These are the things you dog owners buy and use on your dogs, and you are OK with this? Straight-up abuse in my opinion. And for you creepy stalkers: Stop following people home and calling the cops on them.

Choke chains are not for "choking," bark collars have vibration settings now so no more zapping, just a buzzing, muzzles protect people from being bit by aggressive dogs (which keeps the dog from being put down), not sure what "leg hobbles" are, but if you're so concerned about basic training tools, you might not want to get a dog.

Somebody was on a down vote warpath.

People who abuse animals are right down there in the scumbag level of child abusers and elder abusers. NO EXCUSE for animal abuse!

Sure, but not ALL dog owners are abusers. So, not sure how my comment got downvoted for questioning that...

Years ago I saw two women walking along the Cabrillo Bike Path, right near West Beach volleyball area. The one woman had a 20-25-lb dog on leash and was being really mean. She was jerking the leash, pulling the dog up off its feet, engaging in all kinds of nasty maneuvers. It was horrible. Imagine how she treated that dog in the privacy of her home. I asked her to please stop the abuse and told her I would take the dog to keep, and to please give it to me. The other woman stood there, never batting an eye. It was truly upsetting. I followed these women home, up onto The Mesa, feeling like a spy on a rescue mission. I found their address and reported them to Animal Control. Poor dogs . . . so helpless at the hands of those who are cruel.

at 1:02 - if someone was following me home all that distance, after asking to take my dog, I'd probably call the cops.

How is someone a candidate for arrest when all that person does is report seeing a dog being jerked around and mistreated? I would have followed them home, too, and I'm no stalker. Just a person who hates seeing animals treated vilainously by their owners. If it was a child you saw being so mistreated would you stand by and do nothing?

I would have called the cops on YOU, that is aggressive stalkish behavior especially demanding that she give you her dog. Not the way to handle it. Could have landed you in jail/arrested.

A-1563763842 2 1 JUL 21, 2019 02:28 PM In reply: As the commenter re: Woman abusing her dog on the Bike Path: Yes. I was and am completely certain that what she was committing was 100% abuse. I have owned dogs and trained them myself since I was 9 years of age. I know how to obedience train a dog and what animal abuse looks like, trust me on that one. And there are two reasons I didn't call Animal Control right then and there (or SBPD) and why I followed the women to find their residence address: (1) I didn't have a cell phone on me and (2) I'm pretty sure AC and/or SBPD would have done nothing at all to help without an i.d. including address or license plate #----if then. As it turned out, AC did speak with the owner of the dog.

Training a gun dog with swimming and noise sensitvity is one thing. I bet the trainer wasn't jerking his dog around on a leash, choking him by lifting him up off the ground.

Yes. Call the police and wait for someone to maybe show up within 30 mins. Meanwhile, the perps are l-o--n-n-n-n-g gone.

Doesn't sound like she was training the dog to me always best to just call the police let them be the judge of that.

I'm sure that you truly thought you were helping the dog, but................Odd Behavior #1: ".....and told her I would take the dog to keep, and to please give it to me." ......................Odd Behavior #2: "I followed these women home, up onto The Mesa, feeling like a spy on a rescue mission."..................I dunno, I probably would have called the police to report being pestered by some random person who was demanding that I hand over my dog, and being stalked for miles by same person to my home.

@2:28pm, just because the dog ends up trained, doesn't mean it's okay to abuse the dog to get it to that point. Non-abusive training works too, it might just take a bit longer. Dogs do not need to be lifted off the ground by the neck (collar) to train them - EVER.

Just a thought - After being accused of abusing her dog I think she would have explained that she was training it, if that's what she was doing.

Are you sure that the woman was not just training the dog? Sometimes training can be a quite aggressive, and misconstrued as abuse. My friend was training his Labrador retriever to fetch ducks/doves, and it was v-e-r-y bothersome to me (throwing the dog into a pond, lighting big firecrackers to train the dog not to be afraid of shotgun bursts, etc.), but the dog turned out to be a champion.
