puppies do to each other as "friendship." That's a little
simplistic. They might be playing "grabass" as Jerry likes
to say, or they might be sharpening up their prey killing
skills--on eachOTHER. And sometimes it's not terribly

accomplishes, fans, is to put puppies/dogs in situations
where they are MOST Likely to forget their manners and bite.
That's why one of my RADICAL PUPPY RAISING (stay tuned for
the video) techniques is to practice the NO BITE
This is when we are doing something similar as you see in
the video below:
but with another dog or two's mug in the picture, making the
puppy forget his manners and go into "survival" mode so he
can try to scare away the big bad doggies. Kwame's not so
cute and cuddly when he goes into competition mode.
Now, like most of my techniques, fans, this is a RADICAL
puppy RAISING (stay tuned for the video) technique, but, by
being RADICAL we can take GIANT LEAPS and that's the way we
prefer it at dogtv.com networks and the CORPORATION for the
CHANGING of the MUZZLE. If we can teach the puppy that
nobite means nobite, even when there is competition looming,
then we are virtually IMMUNE from ever being bit by our dogs
by "accident" as which happened to our very own LEAH when
her dog "accidentally" forgot that her hand was on the bone.
It's not BITING which is bad, fans, and I "play fight" with
my dogs all the time, and they are allowed to bite me
carefully and "PlayFULLY." The ONLY kind of biting I'm
concerned about stopping entirely, fans, is possession
aggression bites (the worst kind), which, to a dog vs
another dog, are completely and perfectly acceptable
HOWEver, what me must teach the dog, is that humans vs dogs
is a whole nother subject matter, and that we don't fight
tooth to tooth and eye to eye. That we can be CIVIL. Dogs
are PERFECTLY capable of understanding HUMAN MORALITY fans,
especially if you teach them MORALS and CIVILITY and put
them in situations where they can learn.
EXACTLY like we are doing with Young Kwame Brown in the
