There are strong rules and regulations on weapons, and gun licencing laws in place, yet anyone, anywhere can go out and buy a puppy from a pet shop or breed from their dog, which could potentially grow to be a lethal weapon. These dogs are on our streets and, despite looking cute, can be as dangerous as a firearm.

Thurston's case is a really good illustration of showing that all dog behaviour happens for a reason. The key is to not overreact and try to look at the situation objectively and just as we have, always make sure you ask your vet to do a thorough examination before implementing training or behavioural changes.

Rocket came into my life around two years ago when his owners took him on from a charity that rescues Lurcher types. Rocket had been living in the country and when faced with London, its fair to say it freaked him out. On top of this he really struggled with other dogs, he was petrified of them.

It would be great to find out though as I would wholeheartedly welcome them being a shining example of how the birth of a baby and the ownership of a dog can be managed.
