    I doubt either could control their pets if they needed to.

    My mother survived post war Berlin largely because of the German Shepherd that accompanied her wherever she went. Apparently the Russian soldiers who controlled her part of Berlin understood her control of the dog and how it might affect them.

    This post doesn't do justice to the peril your mother faced. You won't hear about it in most history classes, but the Russians openly encouraged their troops to consider the German women theirs to rape. All I can say about this is...good dog! Very good dog!

    My wife works where Security is a must plus her second Job handles thousands of dollars. She has her little .380 on her all the time. Some have said it isn't big enough but I assure you I wouldn't want to be shot with it.

    I just read some research on theft of PIN numbers.

    For about $200, a criminal (or anyone) can purchase a FLIR (Forward Looking Infrared) device that snaps onto your iPhone like a regular iPhone protective case. It looks like a regular iPhone case, but converts your iPhone's camera into a thermal imaging device. There are youtube videos showing it if you want to see it in action.

    When your finger momentarily pushes a button on the keypad, the heat from your body is transferred to the keypad and the individual keys show a thermal signature for up to several minutes after.

    The criminal can simply wait for you to leave, snap a quick photo of the keypad and continue on. The heat signatures of the individual keys will even show which order you pressed them in. The coolest will be first, the hottest key will be the last one you touched.

    There's an easy defense, you just place your entire hand over the keypad for a few seconds when you're done with your transaction. This warms up all the keys evenly.
    But who does that?

    Personally, I refuse to use debit cards... they don't provide the same protections as a credit card does, they allow the bank to suck you dry with transaction fees, and are an open liability for things of a criminal nature.

    No I don’t think I have a problem training dogs. But I have a Lotta problems with untrained dogs.
    But it seems like I just saw post somewhere about a woman that was killed by her own dogs because she was no longer the leader of the pack.
    That’s why I made the comment

    I suspect it would take an enormous man or woman to handle those two dogs if they didn’t want to be. It had to do with the handler size not gender.

    No one is going to handle those animals if they don't want handled, training is key not physical force.
