Who watches It's Me or the Dog? It's my favorite dog training show for sure, much safer and applicable to the average owner than Cesar. Right now I'm watching an episode that has a couple with an aggressive Jack Russell who is trying to kill their new Black Lab. Despite the extreme aggression, the JRT just goes straight for the jugular, Victoria is using a click-to-calm program and it's working really well. The episode is "The Chief of Jealousy" if anyone is interested.

It's very inspiring for me, because even though I've been reading a book on this method and do believe it's the best way to work on any lingering issues with Sadie, it's tough to embrace that in the moment. When you've been burned, or in my case bitten, so many times, it's hard to step back to the subtle approach. But the show has definitely inspired me to start implementing this in public. The point is not to correct aggression, it's to maintain a level of calm and focus so the aggression doesn't start, which is what we need for agility. Now that the temperature has dropped, I think it's time to go back to class, so let's hope it works!

I watched that last night, too. Great to see the clicker approach sharing the TV spotlight with Cesar, and it sure helped with that JRT. One of the clips was classic - the JRT was hanging off the bigger dog's lip for a second. Ouch!

I can't stand Victoria Stilwell. She has some very ignorant opinions about e-collars and dog breeders.

She ranks pretty high on my list of people I would totally stooge slap I had the chance.

I have watched her do some cool stuff with pets...not sure she would be my pick for dealing with a Lacy Dog or other true working breed that still has prey drive.

But with house pets..she has some great approaches.

Court I have to agree with you about some of her opinions but she is not alone in them..there will always be those who are opposed to the e-collar as well as people who see dog breeders as evil..

I've used e-collars, and have no objection to people choosing to use them. I also believe there are better ways to train a dog, and that positive techniques are every bit as effective with a working breed as they are with other breeds - perhaps more so. A distance recall and similar behaviors are all I can think of that can't be done better using other techniques.
