Until the first time they decide they don't want to listen to you. I wish I had a pound for everyone who said their dogs were under control off the lead and then something happens to show they are not.
But, since you are setting yourself up as the perfect dog trainer and know more about dogs than anyone else here I will bow to your superior knowledge...let's hope you are right.
Bob Your last comment is really rude. I do not believe I am the perfect dog trainer. I have spent hours studying and work hard at what I do. I do know that people like Halls just stick to the old fashioned bullying methods that have been proven to not work. Nor do I believe I have superior knowledge. What I do have is a wish to learn as much as I can for as long as it takes, not stick to training ideas that were used fifty years ago.
You have a right to your opinion and I have a right to mine but I do not believe that bullying and hurting animals or people is right in any circumstances.
We all have a right to our opinions and I don't think bullying and hurting animals is right, but at the same time I don't believe anyone can train a dog to be totally obedient at all times. Sooner or later, it will behave unexpectedly and often with disastrous consequences either for the dog itself, other dogs, or indeed people and especially children. It is then we always get the comment, 'It's never done that before'. It only has to kill a child once.
When you have had to deal with the consequences of dog attacks, or dogs having run under the wheels of a car, or dogs having killed other dogs, and also deal with the owners and victims trauma as I have. You wouldn't be so cock sure that your dogs are well trained and obedient.

I do know everything, just not all at once.

A few days ago, my wife and I were minding our own business on the beach, whilst having a picnic.
A dog owner with a large black labrador motioned to the dog to go to us.
It raced towards us, I put my leg out to dissuade it to no avail, it crashed into me and grabbed hold of my lunch bag, then ripped it to bits to get to the food, I shouted at it and attempted to retrive it, but feared getting bitten.
The owner (English) ambled up and enquired what the dod had taken.
I told him and he smirked and said he'll eat anything. No apology or attempt to make amends. I was disgusted with him.
He just walked off smiling, whilst I was left with half a cup of coffee, and sitting on the sand soaking up the sunshine.
I now carry a walking stick.
The next day another loose dog came near us, I raised the stick and the owner shouted something at me in Spanish (well, we are in the Costa del Sol) I motioned to her to put the lead on it. She did so whilst continuing to glare at me.
In the beginning there was darkness.
Then I bought a tent.
I'm not destitute, I'm just poor.
