I keep getting a database error so I can't load the site.

edit: got it to work


edit2: Just read the article, very informative. I agree with all points given and that many times not even dog owners really understand dog body language. It only takes a split second for a dog to go from friendly to attacking no matter the breed, because it was brought out of its comfort zone. And if it's a child tugging on their ears or something it's first instinct is to snap and possibly bite.

The title is a bit misleading though...

Dezymond, title should read why it doesn't ALWAYS work. Some parents are very good at knowing animals and kids.
