charm & chaos
Responsible pet ownership is having reasonable limits and realistic expectations with one's pets. People who do not set boundaries for their pets (e.g. free feeding, no excerise or routine, dogs allowed to roam wherever in more densely populated areas, etc...(If you have an acreage that is a bit different, especially if the dogs are working dogs, (talk about purpose and direction) are just as bad as negligent pet owners. That type of neglect can dramatically affect the health and mental well-being of the pet involved.
Yes, exactly, thank you!
And all this is why I never recommend working breeds as pets.
