Nope - it isnt the mention of pack theory/dominance that gets anyone banned.

Its advising and supporting of pack/dominance theory and the insistance that Victoria is using pack theory/dominance when very very clearly, she is not, and this board is for the discussion and advice on positive reinforcement based training.

If you have a problem with this, please take it up with BoardHost.

Yesterday I was contacted by a friend asking if I know of anywhere that will take a 15 month old Springer Spaniel that guards everything, doesn't matter what it is he will guard it. He has also bitten the person who is now looking after him and has very little chance of finding anyone who will take him on. This dog was trained using dominance and the pack theory, the owner as the pack leader. The damage done to this dog is extreme, most dogs are not this bad but bad enough for the owners to either rehome, abandon or pts them.
