    I guess the best strategy is to wait until they get side and train your dog to respond to subtle hand signals.

    Thank God for stupid criminals. For our members in the UK and Australia.
    How much has crime gone up since strict gun laws or bans have been in effect?

    I am quite surprised that in the UK we have an average of 6.2 people out of 100 people with access to firearms :eek: In my entire life of 50 years I have never seen a real gun except on TV... Here in the UK our main problem is knife crime although that's mostly to be seen in the inner cities and gang related. Gun crime is usually gang related or robberies although we do have occasional mass shooting, the last was Derrick Bird in the Lake District in 2010 who killed 12 and wounded 25 as he drove around the district (very very close to Judith). We had 2 women PC's shot dead a couple of months ago.

    We have to drive three miles to get to our postal box. We also haven't locked our doors in ten years. We put the house up for sale years ago and had to change the locks so the realtor had a key. We have a long driveway and a gate which lets everybody know we have Dobermans. We've never had a problem. Knock on wood!
