As I've Warned Before...

Some people go absolutely nuts in reaction to a barking dog. I don't get it, but I do accept it and warn dog owners to muffle their dogs barking as much as possible. This appears to me to be one of those cases...

Here's A Testimonial From Yesterday

Dear Sam, THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH. IT ALL MAKES PERFECT SENSE. I AM TRYING IT IMMEDIATELY TO TUNE UP OUR DOGS. JACK COMES TO ME IN 2-3 WEEKS. I WILL HAVE EVERYTHING READY AND REPORT BACK TO YOU. YOU ARE A GENIUS WITH DOGS. IT ALL WORKED WITH GRETL AND LIESL. I TRIED AND TRIED ALL THE DOG WHISPERER STUFF. HE IS SHARP ON TV. BUT IN REAL LIFE....IN MY CASE...IT JUST DOES NOT WORK. I AGREE: HE TALKS IN NEBULOUS NON-CONCRETE TERMS....LIKE "ENERGY", ETC. HE'S HOLLYWOOD I GUESS. THANK YOU. YOU ARE THE GREATEST. I AM WORKING NOW. Very Sincerely Grateful, Linda, Gordy, Gretl, Liesl, and now Jack

For All Those Unbelievers

It's become the fashionable thing these days to say there's no such thing as pack order with wolves. It's mostly promoted by folks that have an agenda. Fanatics always have an agenda of some sort. So, it was quite enlightening to read this article:
I lived with wolves'I ate what they ate, mostly raw deer and elk, which they would often bring back for me, or fruit and berries'

"when all the wolves were feeding, I ate the wrong piece of meat – there is a strict hierarchy of who eats what part of an animal – and one of the wolves leapt on me in seconds because of my mistake. He took my entire face in his mouth and started to squeeze hard"

Yes, there is a pack order. Don't believe the fanatics.

Good dog training is about your relationship with your dog, not the clickers, electric collars, treats, toys, or special methods you use.
