Protect Your Dog From Breed Specific Legislation!
Turn your Doberman into a Poodle!
Turn your German Shepherd into a Golden Retriever!
Turn your Mastiff into an Old English
Are you sick of people looking at your breed of dog in fear because politicians and the media are saying things like:
"We want to breed these dogs out of existence".
Well worry no longer, AttackChi will be making disguises for all the so called "dangerous" breeds.
These disguise kits are a response to Breed Specific Legislation (BSL).
BSL affects dogs that are well socialized, have a friendly temperament, or have received dog training.
> 10 Steps to Protect Your Dog from Breed Specific Legislation <
1) Unwrap your kit, let your dog sniff everything.
2) Fit the under harness to your dog, adjust the straps to suit.
3) Put some duct tape tags onto the harness.
4) Put some padding on top and tape it to the tabs.
5) Place the coat over your dog.
6) Line up foot with 'special foot insertion device'.
7) Place the ankle piece on the foot.
8) Remove the foot insertion device and fluff up the ankle pieces.
9) Put the hat on your dogs head.
10) Take your dog outside and paint it black. (Use paint supplied, safe for humans and animals.)
What a lovely dog!

These disguises are a response to BSL.
What is BSL? BSL stands for Breed Specific Legislation which is any law that singles out a breed of dog, based on how a dog looks (i.e.: its breed).
What's the problem? Dogs that are well socialized, have a friendly temperament, and/or have received dog training are still harshly targeted under the legislation. This is unfair!
Another problem is that when all the pit bulls are gone the 'mean or unfit people' who want 'mean looking dogs' all buy staffies, then staffies get banned, and so on.
What's the human world equivalent of BSL for dogs?
Some breeds that were breed for dog-on-dog fighting for decades in the past are much more risky to other dogs and BSL will rightly protect family pets from pit bulls in, for example, in off leash areas (pit bulls are not allowed), parks, pit bulls escaping, etc.
A human equivalent example might be some racial backgrounds linked with, for example, medieval times and the violence associated with that age. I know that living near the 'Lakemba, Merrylands, Bankstown triangle' for 40 years is different (in a negative way) than most other suburban places in Australia (excluding Friday and Saturday nights).
Just like BSL rightly targets some breeds/breed types of dogs (dog fighting breeds), we have legislation and crime squads that targets race/religion combinations of people (violently-linked religious backgrounds).
BSL in the human equivalent would be that if people were harshly punished (i.e.: caged/jailed) just because they were, for example, from the Middle East, were Muslim, and they didn't actually do anything wrong (i.e. they didn't break the law, or attack in a way that was inappropriate for modern Australia).
Was the way BSL laws were passed, going to reduce dogs biting humans, or did we get a bit medieval ourselves and unnecessarily 24/7 cage dogs that didn't need to be caged?
Moving Away From BSL.
Pit bulls are being bred out and disappearing, maybe their aggression to other dogs was enough of a reason for some heavy breed restrictions and an over-the-top blanket ban and removal from society was the only thing a human-centric Australia could be bothered to do.
No one expects the law to be able to stop 'mean or unfit people' who want 'mean looking dogs' but we can restrict some groups of people who have broken particular laws, or met specific criteria from buying particular types* of dogs.
BSL laws should be put in the past and new BML (Bite Minimisation Legislation) could be introduced.
What Is BML?
Bite Minimisation Legislation (BML) could restrict the below groups from buying a type* of dog (I am just making the below stuff up! The below is not actual law!);
- under 21 year olds who can not provide veterinarian records (or other evidence) that they had a family dog for at least 5 years while growing up,
- people that have committed a violent criminal offence in the last 5 years,
- people that are diagnosed with a particular mental illness, personality disorder, intellectual disability, or substance abuse problem, that have a history of violence in the last 5 years or have been involuntary admitted to a health facility after being violent in the last 5 years.
* particular types of dogs or may include: meaty-head/stocky looking breeds that look like they have strong jaw strength, large dogs (rottweilers, dobermans, etc.), or other dog types that individuals from restricted groups like to buy (local councils could decide).
You might be thinking I am just introducing more BSL to widen to more dog breeds, however if the laws are;
- targeted towards the types of dogs being bought by restricted groups (and only restricted groups are restricted), in combination with,
- current 'dangerous dog legislation' that classifies dogs (of any breed) that are vicious or attack people as a dangerous dog...
... then the old BSL argument of "only dog-on-dog fighting breeds are dangerous to humans" will get replaced with "particular dog types from some owners are dangerous to humans".
BML (Bite Minimisation Legislation) returns the focus towards the 'type of dog and the general risk category of the owner' rather than BSL's approach of 1 blanket ban on dog breeds = "problem solved".
It's legislation that targets a small section of society (most Australians are unaffected), and only effects particular types of dogs.
