First off, I did not, and still do not believe that any of you were bashing me. Ya'll were expressing your views, opinions, experience about all of this, just like I was expressing my thoughts about CM. All of you have opened my eyes to what I really wasn't seeing or hearing from CM, and ya'll have ...

Thank you very much Mattie. Yes, I am trying really hard to do what is right by my dogs in every way. I just want peace again in my family. I just want to get through this intial stage of introduction to where all dogs can get along together. I have to agree with you that some owners of dogs, or any...

Ok, I totally agree with the both of you that I do not want to forcefully make my dogs do anything, and I certainly do not want to train my dogs the wrong way. When I first responded to the thread, I really thought that Mattie was judging by that one clip and that was it, but I see now that is not t...

Oh, ok. Well, I thought I knew my girls, but in all honesty, we have never had a puppy around with the girls at all, so I don't really know if either one of them would hurt him physcially or not, and gosh knows, I surely don't want that. The reason that I stepped in is because I thought she would gr...

Mattie, I agree different dog training techniques are worth discussing about, so we all can learn from what is good and what is not, and I agree with just about everything you said in your post. And lets say for the sake of it about CM's clip that you are right. How can you or anyone judge a trainer...

No, I haven't gotten a crate yet, but its next on my list. I am looking for one that I can afford right now. But, we have a small house, and Smokey is right where the girls can see him, smell him, but yet where he and they are safe. I swear, I never had this problem when I brought Star here when she...

EM, I need your advice again please on exactly the right way to handle this situation that I am going to tell you about. First, Star and Smokey are getting along fine so far, and she is playing with him, while I supervise them. She has not been rough with him at all. He has not cried out, nothing. I...

EM, I am sorry that I even replied to Mattie's post, because it was about someone other than Victoria. I did so in just a normal conversation, not meaning no harm. Somehow we have gotten on the subject of CM, and we may not see the same things in watching that clip that Mattie put up. But I do not w...

Mattie, I did watch the clip, once without the sound and once with the sound on. I watched without the sound first, so I would not be persuaded either way. I read where it said that Cotton was a naturally aggressive dog, and it is a natural instinct for this breed of dog. I watched the dog very care...

Emmabeth, thank you very much for replying to my post, and thank you for moving my thread to the right place. Being new here I wasn't sure where to post my thread. Also, I sure wish I had found Victoria's web site forum sooner than I did to know what to do, but thats behind us now, and I have to mov...

If you are talking about Cesar M. I have watched his shows, and I like some of hi...
