Friend for life and security device
Personal security is a fact of life anywhere and something we have to contend with in regional areas as well. Decades ago a police officer told me size isn’t a prerequisite but a barking dog in most cases deters a would-be burglar.
Subsequently, dogs are being picked on yet again by local councils and shires. Firstly, left at home with little or no exercise they develop behaviour problems – some uncontrollable. Picture a prisoner pacing the exercise yard, that’s your dog’s future without the simple task of a daily walk somewhere off the lead.
Secondly, a security camera won’t save a life if there’s an intruder, a dog will at least stave off anybody until police arrive. The bonus is you have a friend/companion for the life of the dog who, unlike some, will give you and your family unquestioned loyalty; a rare commodity in this world gone off the rails.
