The PEEING SQUEAKY TOY And Allelomimetic Behavior
Date: 2001-09-29 11:33:21 PST

Hello People,

A lot of my detractors got a big kick out of my training tip for
housebreaking or paper training a puppy, using a water filled
squeaky toy to teach the command while letting the squeaky toy
demonstrate the behavior we are seeking... That's called
allelomimetic behavior, i.e. the dog copies our actions.

Sure, I've provided them with lots of good belly laughs and
opportunities to criticize and berate me, until our readers write
back, telling us HOWE well it works. Of course our Gang Of Thugs
claims those posters are me, posting under an alias. I don't post
anonymously, anything I've got to say is coming straight from the
shoulder.

Like for example, my surrogate toy separation anxiety technique.
Everyone said I was crazy telling a toy "good bye" upon leaving and
"hello" upon returning, to get the dog to copy the action of the
toys while we are out, in order to receive the same big greeting when
we return... Sure, that sounds crazy... I got that tip from working
with a crazy student of mine. She was trying to figure out a way her
little dog wouldn't feel alone all day, so we worked that out
together...but it works great, and I'm satisfied: "Just Want To

You will be too, If you learn NOT to force control and confront and
scold or punish dogs to control them. You can always go back to
jerking and *** your dog on a pronged ***collar if you aren't
satisfied following my non force, non confrontational approach to
teaching your dog to WANT to do everything you ask: "His Amazing
Progress Almost Makes Me Cry. Your Method Takes Positive Training
To The Next Level And Should Really Be Used By All Trainers Who
Call Themselves Trainers. Thank You For Helping Me Save His Life,"

You can get all the information you need to properly handle and
train your dog using non force, non confrontational, scientific and
psychological behavior modification and conditioning techniques,
from the Wits' End Dog Training Method manual available for free at

BEWARE the forgeries to confuse you, and the warnings offered to
you from our rpdb Gang Of Thugs regarding killfiling my posts and
the Wits' End Dog Training Method manual. These people are frantic
at the thought of not having anymore EXCUSE for being able to jerk,
choke, and hurt dogs on pronged, choke, and electronic shock
collars.

You cannot trust your dog's well being to people who tell you to
killfile my advice...and tell you to punish, confine, and confront
your dog's behavior problems. Our Gang Of Thugs are easily
identifiable by their warnings about my posts, and their killfile
instructions to prevent me from EXPOSING THEM as the vicious,
abusive, cretins they are,AND WANT YOU TO BE, so they don't
look out of sorts.

judge things by reason's way, not by popular say." Montaigne

"CUSTOM WILL RECONCILE PEOPLE TO ANY ATROCITY." G.B. Shaw.

"I know that most men, including those at ease with problems
of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the
simplest and most obvious truth if it would oblige them to
admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in
explaining to colleagues, proudly taught to others, and which
they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their
lives."

Is it any wonder that the following sig file has generated more
complaints to my personal email than any other controversial
post I have made to date, bar none?:

                                            caveat
If you have to do things to your dog to train him, that you would
rather not have to do, then you shouldn't be doing them. If you
have a dog trainer that tells you to jerk your dog around, ***
him, pinch his ears, or twist his toes, shock, shake, slap, scold,
hit, or punish him in any manner, that corrections are
appropriate, that the dog won't think of you as the punisher,
or that corrections are not harmful, or if they can't train your
dog to do what you want, look for a trainer that knows Howe.

There are terrible people who, instead of solving a problem,
bungle it and make it more difficult for all who come after.  Who
ever can't hit the nail on the head should, please, not hit at all.
                     -Nietzsche-

The abilities to think, rationalize and solve problems are learned
qualities.

The Wits' End Dog Training Method challenges the learning
centers in the dogs brain. These centers, once challenged,
develop and continue to grow exponentially, to make him smarter.

The Wits' End Dog Training method capitalizes on praising split
seconds of canine thought, strategy, and timing, not mindless
hours of forced repetition, constant corrections, and scolding.
