The ignoramuses behind Ontario’s Pitbull ban grant exemptions for show dogs but not for Cesar Millan’s dog “Junior” who could actually teach them a thing or two about Pitbull behavior. Millan is currently on a speaking tour of Canada and his appearances normally include live training demonstrations with Junior. But when he came to Ontario and requested an exemption for his non-show dog, Ontario’s Attorney General Chris Bentley refused:
Bentley acknowledged that by facing off against such a popular pit bull champion, he could face the wrath of legions of dog owners.
“I’m a dog lover,” he said Wednesday, mentioning his 15-year-old springer spaniel, Clover. “She deserves the same type of protection all of our pets would have.
I wonder if Mr. Bentley is aware that so many Springer owners have reported aggressive behavior in their dogs that a blanket term for the behavior – Springer Rage Syndrome – was coined. While the name may be a misnomer, the idea of judging an entire breed based on various incidents within that breed should, one would think, ring some kind of bell.
