Re: Presa Canario Episode

And this person did all the stuff I now know of as "dominance theory training" and the dog ended up being put to sleep because he became out of control. the training method was a large part of this dog's being put to sleep. >>>> I hate when anyone uses this argument. why?, its totally subjective and...

Re: Presa Canario Episode

I can't believe we're back here with the idea that dogs who rush doorways are dominant. Dogs who rush doorways are RUDE and haven't been taught manners.>>>> i actually agree at least to a degree. however - i think sometimes arguing over definitions of words can be counter productive/politically corr...

Re: Presa Canario Episode

Moreover, the bottom line is that it is against forum rules to advocate the use of aversives such as prong and shock collars. So I know I'm not a mod but the tone of some of the posts is still troublesome to me and I just needed to say it.>>>>> I know I did not directly advocate anything. However I ...

Re: Presa Canario Episode

NONE, of MIke's training methods are harsh on the dogs WHATSOEVER, despite the use of prong and ecollars>>> I was not criticizing mike at all, or victoria for that matter. I simply wanted to hear from victoria if in her opinion their is instances where she feels a "balanced" approach is necessary? I...

Re: Presa Canario Episode

Im sorry for posting that. :( I now edited out that part. However A no pull harness works precisely because it is uncomfortable to pull against. That does not mean they are uncomfortable to put on. The fact that your dog is happy to put on any restraining device is irrelevant. They have been classic...

Re: Presa Canario Episode

I believe Kohler orig had you do the same excercise w a choke chain or prong. the harness is uncomfortable to pull against. even a flat collar is a mild neg reinforcer if walking the other way or standing like a tree. +R is not in a bubble other quadrants are always in play, they can only be minimiz...

Re: Presa Canario Episode

The trainer ,Mike from K91, in this episode uses aversives in his training. He is in my area and i know he uses tools like prong collars and such in addition to pos reinforcement (in fact the pit bull in the demonstration has a pinch collar on). So my question for victoria is do you agree w his trai...
