A gif of Cesar being bitten by a dog he provoked and then kicking her.
Ok no. If you watch what actually happened, he is working with the dog because of her severe food aggression. He was not provoking her. He says something about a baby, which I’m assuming means that the couple he’s working with has a baby on the way and they’re trying to fix their dog’s food aggression. He was not provoking her. And she had a goddamn grip on his hand was he not supposed to kick her to get her off? At first he just touched the side of her face but that didn’t work so he had to result to different measures. Actually learn all of the facts before you judge. A well-fed, family dog shouldn’t react that way to someone being near their food bowl.
Actually, wereallmadhere, if you look up the video on YouTube (a video that, if I understand correctly, CM’s crew has tried to take off many times), you’ll see that he set the dog up for failure and ignored all of her warning signs. There is actually a video (or two!) that pauses at each and every warning sign that this dog gives off.
Not only that, but food aggression is not an issue of a dog not being well fed nor is it an issue that doesn’t crop up in good family dogs. It is a decently common issue, actually, that is easy to work through. Cesar just absolutely didn’t work through it correctly (no surprise).
If you are willing to take your own advice about learning facts before judging perhaps you would benefit from not only the full videos of this on YouTube but also from looking up the different warning and calming signals that dogs give.

Yesterday I found out the reality of the dobermans. They are artificially bred which causes consequence; while there head stops growing, their brains continue to do so, causing them to become crazy, turning into killer predators who will turn on their own loving owner. As a result, they have to be put down at a certain age. This manifests how madness is most often animalistic. But the moral is: never tamper with nature.
This is absolutely not true.
If I told you that the sky was yellow, that would be a smaller lie than what is posted above. If I told you that a shoe gave birth to me, that would also be a smaller lie than what is posted above.
The text under the picture is nothing more than an old-wives tail that has been spun about every “aggressive” breed, not just the dobermans. I expect to live, happily and safely, with my doberman until the day that he dies - hopefully well past the age of ten. There are many people before me and there will be many people after me who live with their dobes well into their prime without issue.
To the person who originally posted this: Please do some legitimate research before spreading lies and slander.
To those who are reblogging this and/or considering this breed: Also do your research on the breed as a whole and on reputable breeders who title and health test their dogs in order to better the breed and produce safe dogs.
Dreizehn’s ready face.
Today Dreizehn earned enough legs for his first lure coursing title, CAT!
Now he is… UKC Ch Rhapsody’s Mystery of the Spanish Chest CGC CA.
I’m so pleased and I cannot wait for him to get more (you know, since he absolutely loves coursing)!
