    Default A good article...

    A good article came across my facebook news feed today. I thought I would share it, in case some of you haven't seen it yet.

    I thought it was a great article, because some of the examples have been tried on great Pyrenees, with obvious results.

    That is a fantastic article, Davey. Thank you for sharing it.
    It brings back memories of the Puppy Kindergarten Teacher who told me that Four-month-old Sebastian had an "attitude problem", and peed in the house because he was "marking". It's terrifying that she's still out there training dogs...

    Good article, like the way she says she has worked with dogs who "multiple puncture wounded on multiple people" when describing a "people agressive" dog...

    Awesome article Davey.

    I can say as someone who has had both of her dogs professionally trained in two very different ways I can tell you Monty who was rolled and forced to submit has way more problems then Missy who was trained with positive reinforcement. Monty has come along ways but, he will never be as good as he could be, because I didn't know any better at the time.

    I love that article, and that blogger. She's trained wolves! Wolves!

    I really like wolves.

    I'm so sorry you had an awful trainer for Monty, Tsuni. At least you know now how well positive reinforcement and NILIF work, and you won't ever have that problem again. From your posts, Monty seems like an amazing dog, and I attribute that almost fully to his having such a loving mom.

    SM, that trainer is an idiot. Wow. Talk about not understanding canine development.
