"Such tools ‘work’ by engendering fear, pain, and distrust, and in doing so they cause long-term damage that make dogs more reactive, less trusting, and less able to reach their full potential in their partnership with humans, no matter what form that partnership takes." But at the risk o...

And I think the point of my argument is being missed so I think the debate is becoming useless. I say "I am a believer in positive reinforcement and agree to use that first and foremost, but I also agree that a small percentage of dogs do well with correctional methods and can/do need it to exc...

The first two links you offered do not apply to me, as I never once said to agree with the dominance theory as a training method. I am going through the third and fourth one now. Also, he does have a degree in Applied Animal Behavioral Science and he took classes on something else more canine specif...

I guess you can tell my mentor with decades of experience as a trainer/behavioralist that he is wrong too. Where is his listing in the applied animal behaviorist directory? Because I'm sure the ABS would love to know one of their certified behaviorists approves the use of prong collars. If he's not...

Good diet for an elderly dog?

My Dachshund, Penny, is going on 11 years old. We have her on Taste Of The Wild Pacific Stream, but after reading a few veterinarian articles stating that high protein diets in semi-inactive dogs can cause kidney problems, I figure a switch may be in order.
