LIFETIME LEGAL CONCLUSION?

In childhood, dreaming of a dog, I often imagined myself proudly walking with a dog on a leash. When I got the dog, I didn’t need a leash.

In contrast to general training, the guard-and-guard service required the help of assistants and a defendant. There was nothing to think to train the dog yourself. I signed up for the group and, under the guidance of an instructor, began to make a guard dog from a domestic dog. Continue reading
