is this man putting his baby in danger?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rChLGSEjGXg

i am quite confused as to how he allows his baby next to the rottie while its growling a lot. its not showing its teeth, so im confused, do rotties just like to growl or something?

is the growling of a rottie equivalent to a purr of a cat?

he looked like he was trying to agrivate the dog too, so that means the growls werent for show?

is the dog protecting the baby? or what?

dumb dumb

rotties are herding dogs by breed even though they have now been bred for guard their instincts are still herding and livestock protection .. to a herding dog a child is equivalent to a sheep ... it's unlikely the dog would attack the baby
she is protecting the baby you can see it in how she moves around the baby plus the child is pulling on her and she doesn't seem to really care..
although what he is doing is unsafe .. especially because the dog is that protective over the child .. I would feel there is more risk to the parent then to the child.
I have been training dogs for 4 years and I tell anyone with dogs like that to break them of it quickly it is not good for a dog to be that protective of a child nor is it safe to anyone .. and yes the child can get bitten by accident if the dog decides to attack the parent .. no good he shouldn't have the child or the dog ..
AFTER WATCHING THIS VIDEO AGAIN>.... THE DOG IS NOT GROWLING IT'S THE RETARD WITH THE CAMERA MAKING GROWL NOISES OR VOICE OVER>. WATCH CAREFULLY THE DOG IS JUST PANTING

Looking at the dogs' chest you can see that she is indeed growling. Idiots like this make me wish there was some sort of test you need to pass in order to procreate

Good comment, TwinTails. LOL. Yes, definitely the dog is growling. You can see that look in the eye, its body language .... good way for him to get a seriously bad bite to his face, and what an idiot, putting his hand around to the back of its head, near the baby. If it whipped around to bite and lost balance on that couch, it could hurt the baby.
We test our cattle dogs' ability to guard by simply placing an article, say a handbag, on the floor and telling them to look after it. Once we know it will guard, that's it, we never goad the dog the way this guy does, and we don't have to repeat it. I don't think badly of the Rottie, she can't help being owned by someone like that.

i agree.

he really was trying to get the dog to growl more and more, this is really stupid.

he claims that he trusts the dog very much.

so by trusting it he aggrivates it?

what an idiot.

the thing is, as much as he trusts it, he should not trust his child around the dog. because the child could one day aggrivate the dog, i wouldnt leave any child around a dog alone. one could intiate something with the other.

plus, we are a being, and the dogs are a different being. we are not ment to be together. yes its a great mix, but we have to respect and acknowlege the boundaries nature placed around us. its easy for the dog to respect our boundaries, but the problem is getting some humans to respect the dogs' boundaries.

i speak from experience since living here doesnt give you much knowlege on animals.
