Wanted: Dog Trainning in Oakville, ON area

HOWEDY stupid,

I was just reviewing some article from "applied ethology" from the
university of Skatchwan where the veterinarian endorsing the mcain method
refers us to for further information about behavior. I've just CRUCIFIED
them last week, no need for me to repeat that experience.

Your pals at the 'training' center rely on the GL which is neither gentle
nor a leader, it's a vicious neck twister device...

Now get the heel outta here. Jerry.

Hey Jerry,

Thanks for your concern, but it's McCann, not Mcain.  And the course
does not use leads.  Leads are alowed the first couple class only so
that owners can keep their dogs at their sides, but pretty soon they
are off leads and stay beside you because they are happy and trained
to do so.  The only time a colar of any kind is allowed after that is
if the dog is being trained as a guide dog.

I asked then what type of collar he should have for the course, here
is there response.

"Training or Woodhouse collars ARE NOT allowed in our classes.  What
you put on your pup at home is your business but those types of
collars are not allowed in our training rooms.  I would instead
suggest you get a soft nylon or buckle back collar."

<<Insert derogatory comment here, but I'm too tired to bother with JH
today>>

Craig.
