I agree 1,000%.
HappyChick wrote:Yes, I agree about running around trying to catch a dog. ESPECIALLY one that has been couped up in a pen for weeks and then is put in a box for hours in the back of a vehicle with a bunch of other dogs. Can you say FREEDOM???
Here are the suggestions I came up with:
Carry a catch pole
Have a big bag of treats
Carry a slab of raw meat
Use a choke collar when taking a dog from the crate in one vehicle to the crate in another, that way it can be slipped off the dog's head when placed in the crate.
Those are all I could think of and that is why I posed the question here. I would like answers from experienced folks.

The "trying to save them all" rescues make me very angry...

One would think that...but I see soooo many "I LOVE DOGS!" type of people working in rescue. *sigh* But they don't really *know* dogs. I've recently heard of a foster home that had THREE fights in the first 24 hours of a new foster arriving...the last one requiring a trip to the E-vet. Seriously? WTF...why would these dogs not be separated after the first one (or before, since we're talking bully breeds). My foster right now should not have been pulled, honestly...and I'm not sure she'll make it to adoptable stage.
