don’t use prong collars on your short-haired dogs

don’t use prong collars ever

(◕‿◕✿)

there are better and more efficient ways to train your dog and by using them touting their effectiveness because they “make my dog pull less” you are admitting your failure as a dog owner and laziness and you should feel bad

Yo guys sorry for not replying to replies. I’m in a hotel until Saturday and the internet is super spotty so I’m blogging on my phone. I still love you guys.


Oh I forgot to mention—-the new house also has a trail down the street! Pretty sweet if you ask me.

*gasp* It’s a fearful dog with a shock collar and a prong collar with a flexi leash! The horror! such stressed. much anxious.wow
Do you hate me now? do you?

But why

I don’t know if you seen some of the drama from yesterday but I decided to give some people out there all their hated things all together. Because maybe that would finally shock them enough to where some common sense will appear in their brain and they’ll learn to be civil with each other. You know like the whole “Treat others the way you would want to be treated”? Not you, of course. You seem pretty chill from what I’ve seen.Honestly, I would’ve given her a bow too but then she would’ve looked really scared.

I don’t understand how posting this picture and taunting +R trainers remedies your concerns, though.  This appears to be the exact thing you’re upset about.
Personally, I see a stressed out dog in this picture.  Her lip is curled upwards, her ears are pushed back, and her eyes are wide. She also appears to be tensed, but I can’t tell that for sure from a photo. Of course this is just a snippet of the dog’s behavior captured in a photo—but I don’t see a happy dog. 
Maybe it would help if you explained your reasoning a little more.  What use do these tools provide to an anxious dog? How do any of these things help a dog feel LESS anxious?
On another point—why do you think this would help people think more calmly and clearly?   

Putting your dog in stress and using negative training tools is def the way to teach people a lesson. Solid plan.

This is exactly my problem. I agree that the dog training community on tumblr can be argumentive at times, but this was unnecessary and counter productive. Upsetting your dog to prove a point is unsettling and kind of gross.

Dominance Behavior in Canids

I didn’t really even WANT to make a post about this.

The alpha-beta-omega model of wolf packs is dead in scientific literature, hammered into the ground, so to speak, and it’s been dead for over ten years. So why am I still hearing about it on TV and reading about it in articles? Why are popular dog trainers that encourage you to “be the alpha” still taken seriously?

I think the unfortunate truth is that the idea that there are strong and ferocious leaders in wolf packs and that you, too, can take on that role with your dog is just somehow appealing to people. Almost romantic, in the older sense of the word. And because of this, it makes money. It sells werewolf media. It sells dog training classes. Educational science channels that have no business promoting this false ideology keep it on board because it gets people watching.

If you couldn’t tell, I’m pretty fed up with the whole thing.

Okay, let’s talk about dominance, particularly what the word even means, because popular media does a terrible job of explaining it.
