I don't think that as it stands, or at least perhaps what the authors original idea was would be suitable for the EG.

But I do think I could incorporate the PR comments and the original entry into something that would be suitable for the EG

The copy is it A2248490

Is that ok with everybody? I have posted to the authors page smiley - ok

I have put in some headers and subheaders which describe the way I think the entry should go, and what should be covered smiley - ok

That's a very long list! I'd be very wary of going into why dogs become aggresive - most of that is down to the way the dog is treated by humans. Although there are breeds that were bred for their aggresion, that's the small minority of dogs. But if you do want to go into that, I'll be keeping two beady eyes on you. smiley - winkeye

The breeds thing is about collies and boredom, GSDs being timid, terriers bred for ratting etc Don't intend to go into too much detail, many of the subheaders will overlap and are there to remind me about points to include rather than definate seperate paragraphs.

Things like multi-pet house holds and being dominant in a family are related as it is due to the pack top dog mentality etc.

I used to work with a pet behaviouralist which has helped understand them.

But fear not Mina, I will be very careful on this one! (if only due to the fear of your smiley - bigeyessmiley - winkeye

It will be interesting to see how it goes. Although talking of collies, my mum has a collie cross, and it gets barely any exercise (bad Mum!), and yet it's the most affectionate thing you'll ever come across. And it came from a puppy farm, so we've been lucky.
