Well in that case, he is uninformed. And if the apex of his argument is "U R A IDIOT DERPA DERP", well that says a lot.
I didn't get it not too long ago either. Trust me. But talking to BG over PM, and actually training a 90lbs dog that people FEAR, and damn it if suddenly all the arm chair experts start too look like fools.
And if you people think I mean I'm kicking and punching my pup when I say use my hand and feet, it says more about your mentality than mine. I've never kicked or punched this dog one time, and can sit him in any situation.
A mutt, that not 16 months ago would show teeth around food, now will sit, and calmly watch a chunk of cheese on the other side of the room, until I release him and allow him to eat it. I know what I've done with this animal works, he is happier and healthier for it. While he is my companion, and I love him third to my wife and son, he is an animal, and prefers to be treated like one. He wants a strong leader, so we give it to him.
That Dog whisperer guy uses his hands, his feet, physically sits and lays dogs down all the time. He uses a chocking tie on his leash almost exclusively... I suppose he is an idiot too?
