Upstate woman dies after needless Pit Bull attack 2013

For nearly a decade I have been helping people all over the southeast with serious dog behavior problems. I can tell you exactly what went wrong with the Pit Bull in Greenwood, SC… I will also have to say SHAME ON EVERY MEDIA OUTLET IN THE UPSTATE! They do do not once bother contacting Greenville’s very own dog behavior expert in an attempt to post an accurate news story.

While the NEWS story reports that there had never been an incident with this dog, the unidentified neighbor IN THE STORY contradicts this. The unidentified neighbor states that this Pit Bull HAD growled at his family and HAD attacked his dog!

Does that sound like “out of the blue” to you? “Suddenly” became aggressive? In an attempt to help educate dog owners and the MEDIA. No dog has ever “suddenly” turned on it’s human. Dogs WILL however begin testing authority… if you do not understand how to overcome these tests then the dogs behavior will continue out of control.

By understanding the warning signs like: growling at inappropriate times, attacking neighbors dogs, being territorial and exhibiting dominant behavior… you can STOP these behavior before they LEAD UP to a brutal attack on a family member. One story even boasts how the dog slept in bed with the kids.. folks that is a territorial problem waiting to happen! Dogs should sleep on the floor not in bed with humans… for many reasons.

Just so readers understand… There is no such thing as a bad dog… only a bad OWNER. Don’t be a bad owner. Just like when Edwin McCains child was attacked by a dog here in Greenville, there were warning signs.

I am always available to the media as an expert on preventing this type of dog violence and have extensive client support as to the effectiveness of my Canine Psychology program, yet media rarely has an interest in this side of work. Funny how they always want to interview me, and do huge 3 hour specials on my Greenville Ghost Tour. So if there are any responsible reporters left, pay attention… you could HELP people NOT die by asking me for insights about the increasing dog behavior problems in the USA. It is getting worse folks.

Dogs need THREE things in order to remain balanced….

  1. Physical exercise (running in the yard won’t cut it!)
  2. Discipline (rules and boundaries NOT punishment)
  3. Affection (goes at the bottom of the list)

Provide those and this type of senseless violence will NOT happen.

I am going to continue taking the news outlets to task for being RACISTS. You heard me! By focusing only on sensationalized stories about Pit Bulls, Rottweilers or similar large breed dogs, the media shows it is incapable of benefiting the community it claims to serve.

I am the one man who has spent the last 10 years of his life actually helping rehabilitate the most serious dog behavior problems in the Carolinas, Virginia, Alabama and all points in between. Ask ME what dogs are hurting more people and I will assure it is NOT Pit Bulls and other “Power Breeds.” In my real world experience you are far more likely to be injured by an out of balance small breed dog or typical family dog! The dogs I am seeing regularly are the chihuahuas, labs, pointers, retrievers and the like! Only rarely is the caller on my phone calling because of a Pit Bull problem…

In fact, did you know more Pit Bulls die at dog fighting rings for NOT fighting??? Read that again folks! When you read the statistics of dog bite and maulings, those reports are gathered by searching through news articles. The funny thing is the news rarely reports any attacks other than large breed dogs! They sensationalize! Call the news and tell them your cute fluffy Coton De Tulear ripped a childs cheek off… they won’t care! So the small dog attacks on people go largely unreported and undocumented… Further skewing the factual data.

It is sad that reporters like Casey Vaughn and others who report these cases don’t bother to tell folks that there IS help if you think your dog is showing these behaviors. They want you to see the brutal “truth” as they present it…

Sadly these reporters who flock to hear my ghost stories every year ALL KNOW that I rehabilitate ALL forms of dogs behavior problems and work with ALL breeds. I comment on the lunacy to nearly every reporter. Yet their only interest is in the sensational…

Maybe one responsible reporter will see this blog post and be hit with how useless it is to sensationalize this stuff… instead we should be showing people that there IS help for these kinds of dog behavior problems BEFORE someone else DIES. Every local news outlet covered the violence… not ONE bothered to show people how to get help for THEIR dogs! Dog trainers don’t know the answer either!

My heart goes out to the family who experienced this loss. My heartfelt plea is that you call me for a consultation before you bring another power breed into your home. I can help you prevent this from happening again.

Here is the original Fox News coverage of the Greenwood dog attack
