When people drop their dogs off with a trainer, they want their dogs to be safe. Many imagine that a trainer understands dogs in a way many of the rest of us do not. But when pet owners in Loxahatchee, Florida dropped their animals off at the local trainer's business, they had no idea that they were leaving them with a violent abuser.
Terrifying footage shows a trainer brutally kicking dogs and choking them. In the videos, the woman picks up dogs by the leash around their neck and then hangs their leash up high on a pole, forcing the poor animals to stand on their hind legs to avoid choking to death.
How could authorities allow this person to get anywhere near another dog, or animal of any kind, again?
A person able to inflict this much pain on an innocent animal should simply never be allowed to own or work with animals again. She also must be sentenced to mandatory counseling. Sign the petition now if you agree!
When people leave their pets with a dog trainer, they are entrusting those workers to protect and care for their animals. This makes this instance an even more egregious violation of trust – not just of animals, but of pet owners, too. Clearly this woman is unfit to ever own animals again, and should be given a lifetime ban on animal ownership and mandatory counseling.
