I hope their owner(s) can be rehabilitated. ;)

Pretty good work. But these dogs were not vicious...look at their tail wagging. That means they were looking for a ball or a frisbee. Some humans just do not seem to understand dog language too well. A vicious (a.i scared) dog looks a bit different.

Well done to the officer. Handled very well. While I can see how people without much experience with dogs would be nervous by those two canines, I'm gonna have to agree with #2, those were not vicious dogs.

#2 and #3...I have to disagree, actually contrary to popular belief, even though tail wagging can be a sign of a happy dog, it can also mean aggressiveness, especially coupled with other aggressive behavior, such as excessive, intense barking and showing teeth, as these dogs did. But the officer did handle them very well, calmed them down on several occasions.

These dogs are mainly stressed out of their minds. The black one seems to look for guidance at the brown one and his charging behavior looks to me like what is called "displacement behavior" - an activity a dog resorts to if he feels the need to react and does not know what an appropriate behavior would be in a given situation. They are excited for sure, as the wagging tail indicates. The carriage of the ears and the eyebrows are indicators, that they do not intend to attack but rather put on a show to be taken seriously. The officer spots that verry well. It is easy to see these details with enough knowledge of dog behavior from a safe distance. But in the heat of the moment? Hats off!

Thanks Thundersnow. I stand corrected. Although I would not be too afraid of these particular dogs. I have seen ones that were really aggressive. Alotta teeth and white foam dripping. Thanks #5 too

I have to disagree with some of you about 2 subjects:

1 - I don't really care what tail wagging or any other sign means, I am just scared of dogs! Say what you want but you can't force me to interpret dog body language etc and be calm. I AM SCARED!! It's like of fear of heights. Let's say we are standing at the top of a tall building and there are very strong fences around the terrace and there is 0% chance one can fall from the terrace. Yet, you are afraid of heights and can not walk to the edge of the terrace although there are very strong fences!! It's just the same with the dogs!!

2 - At around 03:03, cop sprays something to the black dog and the dog suddenly turns away and goes to lay on the grass, which doesn't seem natural considering the rest of the video. You can see the spray mist and you can hear a click, as if the cop is pushing the spray cap!

#10 yeah, phobias can be a bitch (no pun intended). I know people who overcame their fear of dogs though and the do not regret it one bit. They are such wonderful animals that can give you an incredible amount of unconditional love and joy. I would be a much sadder person without my gang.

#10 that was pepper spray, hence the officer saying "yeah, thats not very nice"

Despite the barking, their tails are still wagging. If truly vicious, the hair would be up on the backs and tails not wagging.

#I agree with #8, #10 and #11, any animal phobia is very difficult to deal with (not sure why people are down voting you #10) and very debilitating, especially a phobia of dogs, because dogs are everywhere, but I understand, because at the end of the day, no matter how cute ad affectionate, dogs are still predators, and they can have exhibit aggressive behavior.
