I never said I advocated his methods, but that he made me see the apbt
in a different light. I see now, the way he thinks all dogs are the same is incorrect. I am a firm believer in positive reinforcement. I did say I didn't like the way he handled the food aggression case. I don't think punishment works for any type of dog.
I like the way he explains human energy and how it can be transferred down the leash to dogs. I have heard other trainers mention this as well. I learned to be calm now, instead of nervous and fearful, around other dogs and it really helps. I was attacked by a bull dog at the age of 5 and had night terrors until 13. It's taken me another 10 years to finally be able to be around dogs. I'm still pretty young and have a lot to learn.
I probably shouldn't have posted all that I did on this forum and I'm sorry I was so dull. I think I should read all I can here and keep my thoughts to myself.
I am definitely not a CM groupie, just like the way he talks about energy as I stated above.
