U.S. pet owners say well-trained dogs are safe dogs

By Sue Manning, from WSBT

Most American pet owners believe a well-trained dog is a safe dog — even pit bulls and Rottweilers.
Seventy-one percent of those questioned for an Associated poll say any breed can be safe if well trained, while 28 percent say some breeds are too dangerous no matter how good the training.
Sixty percent of pet owners feel all breeds should be allowed in residential communities, while 38 percent believe some should be banned. Of those who support a ban, 85 percent would outlaw pit bulls.
Other breeds on the unwanted list are Rottweilers, Dobermans, German shepherds and chow chows.
When asked just about pit bulls, 53 percent of those polled say they are safe for residential neighborhoods, but 43 percent believe they are too dangerous.
