    Agree. It is abuse and with respect for diversity, if you have a dog that his job scares the crap out of him (literally apparently), how reliable do you think he's really gonna be?

    I would absolutely flip out if I was working any sort of situation and saw this. No dog should ever be subjected to that. They're just like people, some can handle certain things, some can't, and that's ok!

    Truthfully if one of our dogs were urinating, defecating, teeth chattering, tail between legs, belly to the ground (and I don't mean belly to the ground like slinking through a really tight space in agility- or to reach what they were trained to alert on ) I would be appalled.

    I mean- appalled. And horrified. And would swiftly 'retire' the dog, who should not have been in that situation to begin with. And then I would swiftly retire myself, because clearly I do not have my dogs' best interests in mind. Gah.
