JD said the initiative will also tackle other related issues including but not limited to child labour, illegal dog fights and child pornography. Jeral who owns Royal Giant Schnauzers LLC, a dog training and breeding business, said the initiative was borne out of the need to protect children and canines who are always the silent victims of abusive practices.
â€œThe support from my celebrity friends and colleagues has been great,
and the support from my Instagram followers and online community has
been astoundingly overwhelming. And even though the original focus was
to provide support, rehabilitate, train and where necessary provide
shelter, I want to widen the scope of our involvement. Funding so far
has been from my personal finances, which is why I am currently talking
to a few prospective partners corporate/individuals to support and help
us expand the objectives of this initiativeâ€ Jeral said.
further to explain that child and animal abuse happens all too often in
so many situations and cultures, yet little research has been devoted to
â€œAn interesting study compared dogs that have been (or
have most likely been) abused with dogs that have not been abused. Not
surprisingly, behavioral differences were found between the abused
children and abused dogs. Dogs with a history of abuse were rated by
their guardians as more excitable and performed more attachment and
attention-seeking behavior than their counterparts. They also displayed
more fear and aggression towards unfamiliar people and unfamiliar dogs.
They rolled in feces more often, exhibited more fearfulness on stairs,
showed higher levels of hyperactivity, were more persistent barkers and
had a greater frequency of â€œbizarre, strange, or repetitive behaviors.â€
That last category includes actions such as hoarding shoes, digging deep
holes, sucking on pillows and being unable to stop, and circling when
anxiousâ€ Davis says.
He said studies have also shown that child
violence and other abusive behavior increased during the COVID pandemic
lockdown. Explaining further, Jeral said the lockdown measures put in
place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, forced lots of schools and
businesses to either close down or furlough their workers so a lot of
families were at home which gave rise flaring tempers and heightened
irritations due to this and sometimes children and pets bear the brunt
of it all.
