That so? Ever hear of the visual ***reflex?

Your pal lt joel walton took a pretty solid smack upside his
head from The Puppy Wizzzard for tellin folks to pull away
from the dog when IT jumps on them, cause that triggers the
dog to want to bite...

HOWEDY Disciple Paulie,

 > > From what I've seen so far of dog training,

leah's experiences with dog training have been nuthin but
jerking and *** and neck twisting and crating her WON
dog who'd BIT her 4 times... and she's been bitten TWICE
at "work" at pest mart neck twisting and "teaching restraint
techniques" to stranger's dogs... to enhance the bond between
dog abuser and dog...

Hurts, intimidates, and makes an enemy of your dog.

Yeah... that's HOWE COME leah's been bitten 4 times
by her own dog and twice by stranger's dogs at pest

 > > Using rewards works very well

NO. That's ridiculous. Dogs do not work for credit. Rewards
usurp the trainer's authority and teach greed and increase
anxiety... like HOWE COME leah got bit on her nose...

 > > and very quickly on many dogs, and on others it doesn't.

That's idiocy. It doesn't work on SOME dogs because it SCARES
THEM. Dogs DO NOT share food, they steal scraps and run for
cover, and eat it with their back to the wall in a heightened state
of alert... When it does SEEM to work, it actually DISTRACTS
the dog from the lesson and prevents the dog understanding
the command in context.

 > > The reward-based trainer

Uses food bribes because they can't make the dog interested
in THEM, because they don't know HOWE to condition a dog
to respond to praise...

 > > has less power

Power? Like the Nazi Axis?

 > > to motivate a dog who is nonchalant about praise,

Meaning HOWER expert dog lovers do not understand
basic conditioning exercises as taught in your FREE
copy of The Puppy Wizzzard's FREE WWW Wits' End
Dog Training Method Manual.

 > > food

Food has no bearing on training, except as a DISTRACTION.
Unless you can control EVERY BIT of food in the world.

 > > and toys.

Toys can motivate the dog, but that's appealing to greed
and distracts the dog from the lesson...

 > >  Using aversives

Makes dogs aggressive shy and gets SOME of them DEAD.

 > > certainly does place more immediate power in the trainer's hands.

when you're not standing there ready to HURT or bribe someMOORE.

 > There is another way.

Yeah. But HOWER dog lovers don't want to learn HOWE
to handle and train a dog without forcing them, cause that
takes away all their NAZI like power.

 > The first thing you teach a dog is pay attention to

Right. That just takes a few minutes if you understand
conditioning and timing, using a little praise and savvy.

Right. The entire process takes about WON HOWER, maybe less.

Right. That's HOWE COME we get 100% total non physical control,
nearly instantly, maybe FASTER.

Right, because it's installed as a conditioned reflex.. not a
choice, not a response to a bribe, JUST BECAUSE the dog
has been CONDITIONED to respond without thinking.... just
reflex, cause that's just HOWE it IS.

 > it's ingrained into it so it has to come.

Right. Most of HOWE dog lovers ***and shock and bribe
their dogs for months and years and often NEVER get a reliable
come command as The Puppy Wizzzard's FREE WWW Wits'
End Dog Training Method Manual Students achieve in an HOWER,
maybe less. Maybe it'll take four HOWERS, if you got a problem
with a dog that doesn't trust you. NO PROBLEM.

 > The dog realises it has 2 options, either "heel" or "come",
 > since sitting in front of me after a recall is a ***

Right. Everything got to be set up so we're not pressuring the
dog to try to be independent, but not allowing him to be "free"
either. Kinda like makin a move on a foxy young thing... not too
much of this and not too much of that and you get what you're
lookin for...

 > That's an example of what I mean,

Yeah, sorta...

 > no treats or punishment just 2 alternatives.

Right. Add a little intrigue, allow some distance and freedom,
add some sweet talk, a little conditioning, and you got it all.

Same same for puttin moves on a foxy young thing... eh Disciple Paulie?

The Puppy Wizzzard sez that goes out the goddamned window the
first time you use fear force or aversives scolding or punishment in
any way, any HOWE.

 > > Granted that the dog who fears retribution will adore his owner.

No. That's FEAR... not adoration. That's HOWE COME dogs attack
their families... cause SOMEBODY HURT and INTIMIDATED them.

 > > But he doesn't trust that his owner won't *hurt him.

Or spray aversives in their face or scruff shake or chin chuck him...

Can't have that noMOORE. That's the kind of doubletalk that
keeps HOWER lying dog abusing Punk Thug Cowards HURTIN
and KILLIN dogs and tellin us they're TRAINERS...

Yeah. So leah's gonna HURT the dog HALF as much as she'd LIKE.

 > > A good handler with a biddable dog

Here on rpdb "biddable" means FEARFUL of gettin HURT someMOORE.

 > > rarely administers corrections.

Cause the dog is FEARFUL of gettin HURT someMOORE.

 > >  But most of JQP (the people we "trainers" are trying to educate)


leah is SO outta business. The Puppy Wizzzard is fixin to drop
the hammer on the head of pest mart... and make him an offer
he can't refuse. WATCH.

 > > are not good handlers.

Because HOWER exxxperts keep fillin their heads with LIES.

 > >  And many of their dogs are not biddable.

That's HOWE COME leah teaches "restraint techniques" to
strange dogs at the pest store...

 > > How many times have you seen people schooled in leash corrections


That's not SCHOOLED, unless Marquis de Sade is teachin...

 > > constantly jerking on their dogs' collars and yelling at them?

Yeah? Whatever happened to intermittent rewards?

NOBODY sez consistency means consistent like in, say, consistency,
or you'd NEED to HURT the dog EVERY TIME it does BAD or you'll

The types of classes leah has been through with her off duty

 > > The dog loves the owner,

Yeah... so you'll reinstate the TRUST by HURTING the dog CONSISTENTLY.

The Puppy Wizzzard don't LIKE hurtin at all, general or

You'd do that because?

Yeah, like that. Or like spraying BINACA in a dog's eyes
or jerking and *** IT on a pronged spiked pinch ***
collar or GL or shocking or spraying citronella in its face
and locking it in a box and pinching and twisting ITS ears
toes and ***... Ooops! Almost forgot, nobody's dogs

Nobody does that here.

Oh. Like HOWER good professor dermer's scruff shake and scream
no into its face and lock it in a box for ten minutes to reflect on RESPECT.

 > The relationship with the dog in your charge is paramount.

Right. That's HOWE COME they neuter and lock IT in a box
and let IT cry till it learns to be quiet.

Right. That's taught when the puppy is locked in the box
and intentionally ignored for crying... like HOWER good
professor did to his kid to teach IT to sleep alone.

 > Nothing can really happen or start flowing until that is established.

Right. That's HOWE COME the GL and pronged spiked pinch ***collar.

 > It's amazing how many people think they are the "Alpha"

Right, it's all done with body language and a "uh uh" and a motherly glance.

 > (I hate that word but I'll use it) but aren't.

Well, let's not insigate The Puppy Wizzzard...

 > I was one of them,

Yeah, you was doin what the exxperts taught you.

 > fortunately I realised it

That's on account of nuthin was working. The Puppy Wizzzard
doesn't take it well if a dog isn't doin his best... it's a BIG problem
when WON of The Puppy Wizzzard's dogs fail, cause that means
the people aren't doin what they sez they're doin, cause all dog
behavior problems are caused by mishandling.

EXXXACTLY. It's the first thing taught in The Puppy Wizzzard's
FREE WWW Wits' End Dog Training Method Manual...

 > > 2.  Wrong method for the wrong dog.

A dog is a dog. If it's the wrong method for ANY dog
then it's the wrong method for ALL dogs.

 > > What happens if a dog doesn't respond to rewards?

Dogs do not respond to rewards. So called rewards
after the fact are meaningless, like punishment after
the fact. You got to catch the dog THINKIN to reward him.

 >  The rewards have to get better.

That's IDIOCY. The rewards don't work cause they are
not given at the time of the THOUGHT of the command.

You can't reward sumpthin the dog ain't thinkin...

 > > The job becomes much harder for the trainer.

Yeah. That's HOWE COME you got to quit misadvising folks.

That's where the shock collar comes in handy.

NO. That's HOWE COME the dog is doin it...

What happens when The Puppy Wizzzard gets LAWS passed
to throw lying dog abusing Punk Thug Cowards in the mental
wards of state criminal corrections facilities???

 > > Don't they have to become harsher?

Not if they're done RIGHT the first couple dozen times.

 > When fearful, a dog has a choice between fight or flight.

Yeah... leah's been bit four time by her own dog and twice
at pest mart, teaching RESTRAINT techniques.

 > > What if he chooses fight?

That's HOWE COME HOWER good professor lying doc
scruff shake dermer recommends koehler.

 > > What can happen to that dog's perception of the handler?

You mean with harsher corrections, like for advanced training?

 > > Or people in general?

Well, sometimes a dog has a genetic defect... that they
can't take much MOORE than gentle unpleasantness...
and turn on their handlers and family and GET DEAD.

 > > How *do* you subdue a dog with a hair-trigger temper?

The Puppy Wizzzard has covered all that in your FREE

Thanks for writing--I would be happy to do almost anything
to get your approach out to dog owners as I know it would
save so many lives.  I know at times I was so frustrated I
thought of giving up on Sunshine but of course I never would
have but many people would have.  The world just does not
know you can train a dog in just a few sessions and actually
solve problems.

We will be here until late April and we really have no plans-
-just to enjoy the warmth and sun of Florida, so any time
you could meet us would be great.  I drive so I would be
happy to come to you anytime anywhere!

We went to Celebration today and two little poodles got
right into his face and he just sat there--I GOT a little
scared but he handled it just fine.--a couple of times people
would ask his name and want to pet him and he just went
to them tail wagging and rolled over for them rub his tummy.

He really just is not concerned about people passing, even
those on rollerblades!  I have always used a gentle leader
in public but he spent most of time rubbing his face on the
grass--today I used his collar and he was so much happier!!

Only problem is he will stop to smell and I can not get
stopped soon enough to keep the leash loose.  He never
pulled ahead of me but when he gets into smelling I have
a hard time getting him going--at times  I think he could
smell a blade of grass for 10 minutes.

I can never thank you enough for giving Sunshine back!!!!!

I wrote to Purdue and told them about him being able to
walk in a crowd with out the /gentle leader and not having
a problem with other people and dogs.

I told them their advice did not work. Their advice was
to use the gentle leader at all times and when he was
around people or dogs to have him sit and reward with
treats--one really good suggestions was to have people
coming toward us stop when he got stressed or aroused
and not move until we backed away-

- can you just see me yelling at people to stop on the street
until I get his attention with treats.

They also suggested the possibilty of using ***-prozac-
but thought he was too dangerous as the drug would make
him less fearful and then he might attack or become more
sure of himself and become dominate aggressive. Just had
to share their great advice with you but I am sure you have
heard it all--even I am becoming an expert on bad advice.

 > Hi Jerry,

No problem. We can fix it. Some "setbacks"are anticipated.

 > We were trying to do the heel the way it is outlined in your manual.

Yes, it's not an EZ exercise, and it takes three or four short sessions
to get the feel for it. If it's confusing, that's GOOD. It's supposed to
feel "wrong" till you "get it right" and then you'll know what you're
striving for. It'll come to you, just let it.

 > I had done something wrong my poor boy was getting awfully confused.

As stated. No problem. Confusion is good, means they're thinking.
He's probably got a lot to think about since your methods have
changed. I expect dogs like this to "stall" and not work for a few
sessions too, don't worry about it. He's testing you for consistency
about not being corrected for mistakes. Just follow the method.

 > We took a break and worked on the recall.

You'll know when the recall is right cause you'll see the reflex
and he'll respond before even thinking about it. Should have
that down pretty good by now I'd expect. On the outside
you'd have a perfect come if you did the H&C and FPLX
and come in four different places, four times each, totalling
about four hours.

 > I think mostly i have to be trained as well as my dog.

Sounds to me like you're doin fine. Don't deviate from the
techniqe, it all pulls together.

 > the hardest part is getting used to holding the leash the way
 > that you say I should.

That's crucial. The handling of the lead is usually our first
mistake that triggers the dog. Takes most folks a few days
to get comfortable with it, just like the heeling pattern. Once
you have the feel for it you'll know and it'll become second
nature. It's the first thing I look for when working with or
watching a handler.

 > Also could you let me know which sites you are posting
 > all this on so that I can look it up.

I'm always on rec.pets.dogs.behavior and cross post to
the rest of the dog forums. It's quite a circus and I'm pretty
well hated by the regulars. They're pre***ely devout
koehler and pronged and shock collar fans. They've got
a bad record of mishandling and killing dogs and conspired
for years to denigrate all non force trainers in order to defend
their force methods. I access it through my isp's newsgroups
but if yours doesn't have them you can easily post through or any of several free news feeders.

 > Thanks
 > Kay Pierce

They call my students liars, paid shills for Jerry, and animal F'ers
and teach folks to ***shock crate and kill their dogs when

I'll give you a brief story. A new poster with a Mastiff of some sort
asked about his *** controlling out of control dogs in the park.
He wanted better control just so he wouldn't have an accident
if she was challenged protecting a dog in the group from a
ruffian playmate.

She had near perfect behavior and was gentle, just a good
mom dog doin a good thing. They told him she was a
danger and he shouldn't expose innocent dogs to her, especially
being the breed she is.

He took her to a behaviorist cause everybody told him I'm a
liar and my methods won't work. The "behaviorist" worked
with him and told him to use a shock collar...

We could fix his dog's behavior to his satisfaction in
a couple short sessions without ever hurting or intimidating
her. I can't figure out what's going through these people's
minds except fear.

Another dog went to the "behaviorist" yesterday for dog fighting.
I don't expect she's alive today and the poster hasn't written yet.
He was ready to kill her though, couldn't risk his smaller dog,
and of course the vet expenses... he just wanted to confirm
that he's doin the right thing.

My last student with dog/dog aggression was Nevyn, owned two
pbX ***es who had a bad habit of fighting together and with
strange dogs. Took 24 days to make them PERFECT on and
off lead at the park or at home...

And two weeks later Valerie came by and cured her dog/dog/handler
aggressive dog in 3 DAYS.

Enough! Jerry.

Dear Jerry,

It's Kay here. I don't know who these people are that
maligning you and your training manual but tell them
from me that it does work.

Hunter is just doing so well even the people who advocated
putting him down are impressed with him.

I even started using it with the neighbor's dog. I went over
there to help her cut his nails. She started yelling at him
for growling at me. I told her to tell him what a good boy he
is instead. Lo and behold he stopped growling and I could
do his nails. All 4 feet.

My dog Hunter was trained with the old jerk and pull method
and my other dog was trained with treats. Hunter has gotten
his enthusiasm back for his training and I couldn't be more

He even tried to kiss a child the other day.

Major break through.

This is the dog that a few months ago tried to eat the kids
through the fence. I can now take him in the car with me
again without him trying to chase cars through the windshield.

So Jerry tell these people that the first rule of dog training is
Do No Harm.

The 2nd rule is whatever works without breaking the first rule.

Aggressive dogs don't need to be put down. Hunter was diagnosed
aggressive and he is going to stay alive and by my side where he

Thank you so much.

Subject: Re: Jerry the jerk howe

I have to strongly disagree that Jerry is a jerk. I am a
dog trainer and I have been for almost 30 years. I
believe strongly in positive reinforcement. My youngest
was trained using treats and praise.

My oldest how ever was not trained that way I am ashamed
to say. The result a very dangerous dog. He has problems
with barrier and *** aggression. A year ago he put
a hole in my leg that took weeks to heal.

When the vet and all of my friends advocated putting him
down I found Jerry's website. I was looking for a natural
way to calm my dog and train him all over again as well.

You say Jerry is a jerk well I have talked to him on the
phone and consulted him about his training methods.
I really grilled him before I even considered using his

He loves dogs. Using his methods my Head Hunter is
now a very sweet dog. I get kisses instead of growls.
When he growls or even looks like he is going to bark
I tell him what a good dog he is and right away he shuts
up, looks at me like I'm nuts. But doesn't try to eat anyone.

I am happy to say that the vet thinks I have him on major
***. I don't! I still use a muzzle on him when I have to
take him to iffy places. But hey I know he in now a sugar.
And the most important thing he is happy again.

It's a free country and you are entitled to your opinion. I
have mine.

Jerry I cannot even begin to tell you the success Ive had with your training

month old Ridgeback female today and she was being an angel after like an
hour of working with her! it is AMAZING!! I pity those fools who take their
dogs to classes where the "Trainers" abuse their dogs! (do they have a

I have two mungrel females; the breeds exactly are Blue Heeler
(spots) x Kelpi (*** genes) x American Pitbull (behavioural) x Pug
(don't laugh!).

They are gentle loving dogs when I'm at home with them, and they are
friendly with unknown people. They are sisters. One is obviously
*** over the other, and I don't have a problem with that,

Their behaviour is very odd. Some days they are very good whilst I'm
walking them, some days they are not. They are 3 years old and have
only been walking for about 12 months because my mom didn't walk them
and now I'm home so I walk them for about an hour and half every
afternoon. I take them to the park where they chase birds and swim in
the lake.

This is my problem :

The less-*** dog viscously barks at every other dog we walk
past; I have tried using a stick and giving her a tap when she does it,
and treating her with treats when she doesn't, using a ***chain, a
muzzle and a thing that sprays stuff in her mouth when she barks.

She won't stop! Does anyone know how I can stop her? ]

Also, the more-*** dog seems to know this is WRONG, when the
other dog barks, she doesn't bark, but she nips at the other dog as if
telling her to cut it out, and then the barking one attacks the
more-*** one and they fight on the leash... it is quite
disturbing to the people walking past.

And also the more-*** one is okay around other
dogs... SOMETIMES... sometimes she completely ignores them, and yet
other times she will attack them, like yesterday. The less ***
one I must keep on a leash if a person brings there dog to the park.

How do I stop them attacking other dogs? I have tried all the methods
I have used above for 10 months every afternoon. Is it just a pac
k-behaviour thing?

It can really be quite embarrassing when your dogs attack some old
lady's or little girl's dog.

They are good dogs, when at home or when there are no other dogs
around. Today there were hundreds of sparrows flying around the park
and they were chasing them and jumping up trying to catch them for
more than 90 minutes (They went straight to bed when I bought them
home!). Can anyone help me? Email me at my emails address,



Hi There Jerry

Its Nevyn. Sorry Ive not been posting, but these lying
scum buckets like Alphuck Sweeny and such really
***me off; And Ive been working weekend work at
the tracks with the greyhounds (thanks to you!).

Well my dogs are the envy of all on my street. I can
have them out in the yard with me, take them walking
without a leash, they will do any command with no
hesitation. And they don't bark anymore! Thanks to
your machine!

Oh yeah, I loaned your machine to several friends
and family -- Here are some reports:

"I would say my dogs are well trained, but they suffer
severe anxiety when no body is home. This machine
quietened them almost instantly - still they barked,
in the beginning, but just one or two barks. Then
slowly they just stopped... beginning to bark, then
instantly stopping.

It took only 2 weeks, and we did nothing.

Truly amazing;

I have recommomeded it to my family, and perhaps
they will buy one. Its a shame you don't sell them publicly".
-- Kylie, 30, on dogs Lili (11 yr mutt ***) and Sheeba (4 yr
Rotty X)

"My two dogs barked insanely when someone would
go past. With this little machine they quietened right
down, and even became partly obedient, and we did

Great stuff.

We ran it only on the lowest setting, too!"
- Ed, 65, on his two male Dobermans, 5 yrs old.

Well I have some more, and am collecting more,
but I only have one machine so its a slow process.
Once again I say thankyou Jerry! My family was
on the verge of giving them up! :(

But no longer :)

I assume that I and my wife are those two naive childs

This naive child would like to say thank you to both

The other naive child (LSW) has to put up with the
nagging idea that if people like them had been posting

of a really magnificent animal in our arms while he was
given the needle and having to hug him and wait until he
gasped his last gasp.

To my mind, "naive" is believing you can terrorize a dog
into good behavior.  Naive is believing that people that
hide behind fake names are more honest than people that
use their real names.  Naive is thinking that dilettante
dog breeders and amateur "trainers" like Joey
(lyingdogDUMMY, j.h.) are the equal or better than
those that have studied and lived by their craft for

"Stupid" is believing that people do not see kindergarten
level insults for what they are. Really stupid is believing
that people like Jerry Howe and Marilyn Rammell are
going to just go away because you people act like fools.

Why do you act like fools?  I really have no idea, and I
don't really care.

I think I'm going to get one myself for Father's day and
take it down to the Animal Shelter for their use and

never know.

I don't see a "scam man", so I guess I and Longsuffering

Yes it was, and that is sad.
