Jerry Howe's Killfile Advice
Date: 2001-03-03 09:28:10PST

Hello People,

We've got a lot of dissent here on R.P.D.B. The natives are
restless... They are on the war path, and they don't care WHO
gets HURT or who is victimized... as long as it's not

I think the problem will be resolved when those who feel
threatened by the information I have to share DO put me into
their kill files.

Then, there will be no opposition to the good information that
I post that does help people and their dogs.

It seems there is a polarized group here that only rely on
fear, force, confrontation, and abuse in training, without
ever being aware of the consequences of their actions. They
HURT DOGS because they don't know any better and because it
serves their fragile ego's and compensates for their weak
minds and inferiority complexes.

That they give their uninformed and counterproductive advice,
and back each other up with lies and diversions to absolve
their GUILT, only serves to confuse the issues of what is most
important and the best for our dogs.

Their attempts to discredit me reflect their ego problems, not
my training advice.

I've got lots of good advice, but facing constant criticism
from these few individuals raises concerns about my advice.
People and dogs that could benefit from my advice are
dissuaded from listening to me.

After all, millions of people couldn't be wrong. And I
couldn't be the only one that's right? That's changing. Why?

The situation is changing because I will not be chased away
because of some criticism, as has been the case with everyone
else who has sincerely tried to make positive changes here.

Our Gang Of Thugs has a LONG HISTORY of harassing and
because DECENT TRAINING ADVICE makes them look like what they
are, a bunch of amateurs with big mouths and no brains who
HURT DOGS because they don't know any better and they don't
care. All they want to do is get a ribbon... and they'll kill
dogs that can't give them that ribbon...

So, for a quick fix, put me into your kill file.

If you are interested in good information, take some time to
get the real offenders out of sight. TELL THEM YOU don't want
them giving us their rotten, vicious, advice. The situation
has got to improve. Meanwhile, I'll endure the threats and
annoyances of these experienced dog abusers.

And about the killfie? READ and use your MIND.

lyingfrosty dahl says: "You are even sleazier than I thought."

You BEAT DOGS WITH STICKS to make them retrieve, and YOU call
ME sleazy?

Me? I don't HURT DOGS and LIE.

YOU do. You ABUSE DOGS. And you LIE. Here's PROOF.

> I would never advise anyone to slap a dog.

YOU DO. You LIE. Here's PROOF.

"Get a stick 30- or 40-inches long. You can have a helper
wield the stick, or do it yourself."

"No! Hold!" use a chuck under the chin or pinch its ear chuck
the dog under the chin

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.

they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their

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?:

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 who tells you to jerk your dog
around, ***him, pinch his ears, or twist his toes, shock,
shake, slap, scold, hit, chin cuff, scruff shake or punish
your dog 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.

Nature, to be mastered, must be obeyed.

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.

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 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
