dominence doesn't exist. That's a wolf thing and its innaccurate in the extreme to apply it to dogs IMO. I will NEVER use his methods and his show disgusts me.Thank you for the links
but you would use his methods unless you know what you are doing, I think his methods do work on ordanary pets with problems and if you know how far to take the domanince and how much you and you dog can handle you could use them but only with a professional and knowledge of what you are doing.
Thank you's x
If domanince doesnt exist then why is it when you have a pack of dogs there is always a pack leader a domaninate male or female leading that pack. A friend of mine has 9 dogs and there is a clear pack leader. The domaninate female who none of the other dogs would dare bother is she walks over to the other dog eating the other dog back off.dominence doesn't exist. That's a wolf thing and its innaccurate in the extreme to apply it to dogs IMO. I will NEVER use his methods and his show disgusts me.
Yes but if he nows how dar is right to push that dog and what the problems are but also yes the average everyday dog owner might not realise the dog is stressed, but also he doesnt stress all dogs he works with and he isnt as such training the dog he is over domaninating the dog to gain more control, I disagree with stressing a dog but it depends on what the situation is too.
Yes you are right there but as he knows what he is doing and he doesnt appear to be pysically hurting the dog but using methods dogs themselfs use.Have you seen the shows where the dog is trying to attack him while teaching them to walk....jumping/going ballistic...and he's jerking the dog around to control him? Or, the dogs that tried to attack the owners when they gave the dog a command? His methods are full of intimidation and 'gentle', 'calm' force that fits well with his Judo training.
While those tactics will certainly work in skilled hands they are not necessary. For example, the walking nicely on a loose leash can be done without force or MAKING the dog do it. Other methods teach the dog to WANT to walk with you...willingly, happilly.... without intimidation or force.
Whats wrong? xx
