These behavioural characteristics do not lead to neighbourhood harmony. A brief litany of the anti-social behaviours of dogs include chasing cars and bicycles, causing car accidents, attacking livestock and other companion animals, damaging property, producing unwanted pups and attacking humans (Murray, 1993). The positive effects of dog ownership are relevant to the individual (Hart, 1995) rather than society and dog behaviour is a common cause of disagreements amongst neighbours. In Melbourne, Australia, the most common category of neighbourhood dispute related to a neighbour’s animals, usually a dog or cat (Technisearch, 1990), and in Queensland, Australia, municipal authorities ranked dog problems as their second greatest management problem, following rates collection (Murray, 1993).
In rural communities where un-owned and uncontrolled dogs may chase and kill livestock these unwanted dogs are kept under control by preventing bitches from breeding, by killing surplus puppies and by killing un-owned and free-ranging dogs (Leney & Remfry, 2000). Puppies may be killed by exposure, starvation, drowning or by one of many other means. In cities this control of the dog population breaks down as the danger from unwanted animals differs and control leaves the hand of the individual and is transferred to local authorities.
Morton (1992) developed six criteria to test the necessity of docking (Table 7), and Wansbrough (1996) found that the general reasons advanced for docking dogs tails did not satisfy these criteria and concluded that it cannot be justified. However, the docking of specific breeds engaged in work may meet the criteria, thus in Germany docking is banned, unless it is absolutely necessary for hunting, and then must be carried out by a veterinarian. This might satisfy those who believe that working English Springer Spaniels require the last third of the tail removed to prevent injury in the hunting field (Webster, 1992; Neal, 1992), but there is no published evidence to support their concern about injury to this breed during hunting.
