behavior modification using the Binaca Eye Spray Technique???
Here's the Three Amigos in action:

do respond HOWE he'd like. You can't tell him HOWE to modify her
behavior. That's EZ. Any of my students could fix that fast.
Well, that might actually make the dog moore aggressive, Binaca bethf.
> saying that "oh, its just kids stuff".
not to eat the garbage or steal food off counters or eat poo or dig holes
or jump fences or stay off of furniture or break separation anxiety or
fear of thunder or anything else unless you can ***shock or spray
or avoid it.
> escalates a bit, and they realize that they might have let things go to
No problem. Training takes only a few minutes.
> are being *** over others?
his whining wasn't enough to set off his shock collar.
to jerk and ***dogs and spray aversives in their faces and get out
calling that training? You're a dog abusing Thug.
> who decides its the mother?
That's HOWE COME he's not a trainer. You're a trainer Binaca bethf. Tell us
HOWE you'd train this dog Binaca bethf.
playing with the pack. He needs to train his dog so she doesn't NEED
to be supervised and called back to be trustworthy. Any good trainer should
be able to train this dog EZ.
Options, Binaca bethf? Like spraying Binaca in her eyes? That's an option
so she don't NEED to be supervised, Binaca bethf.
Binaca bethf? Distance has absolutely nothing to do with training unless
you need to be close enough to spray your Binaca in the dog's eyes
for his BAD behaviors.
trained the dog before he got to see the fake behaviorist.
we don't hurt dogs and lie about it like you do.
on seeing the behavior or the specific problem. My method relies
on PERFECT behavior at all times without fear, force, confrontation,
restriction, avoidance or punishment and the dogs work on their own
cause they WANT to do everything we ask cause we never tell them
NO or punish or scold or lock them in boxes for their BAD behavior
get her DEAD.
blank post... better than waltzin us by our willies someMOORE.
You never do. You've usually got the same problems the
posters write in with and you give em the same advice that
got you there.
you was saying you had lots of friends cause you BULL$#!T them
like you're doin right here right now... BINACA bethf.
very very very HAPPY!!! cause that's my job. Basically I'm a *** mean
spirited old crow who hates dogs and doesn't even touch them so to be really
really really CRUEL, I figger out HOWE to get them to do everything we
ask and THEN - make them do stuff.
irrelevant. I handle a giant breed dog EXACTLY as a toy breed.
They're both equally delicate. The amount of force on a Chi's throat
when he hits the end of a chain is going to feel the same to him as it
would feel do a Dane doin the same exercise. Just cause YOU don't
experience any discomfort with the Chi, you can disregard the dog
and ignore it or force it.
Like diddler did to her sick dog for three nites with the barking and
