O’Reilly says public education, in addition to stricter laws and
regulations, are the key to fostering more responsible dog ownership.

The Corner Brook woman is president of the Dog Legislation Council of
Canada and has been involved in rescuing neglected and abused dogs for
20 years.

When it comes to dog aggression, O’Reilly said the solution is not

trained to behave properly and that even troublesome dogs can be taught
their place in the human world.
