What does everyone think of this?(leerburg.com)
So I was browsing dog training on agression and ended up on leesburg.com I wasn't surprised the many stories I found on german shepherd and pit bull attack stories so I was curious to read them thouroughly as my dog now shows signs of agression. Anyway I came to realize that Ed Frawley believes in negative reinforcement as part of his training..? I can't imagine anyone practicing that type of training techniques on their GSD on this forum? Tomorrow I am meeting with professional dog trainer and I made sure that she doesn't practice negative reinfocement. What do yall think of this famous dog trainer?! This is what Ed had to say about his dog.
"I have owned some nasty dogs in my life. I own a male right now that is as bad as anything I have ever seen - probably worse than anything most people will ever see in their life (I bought him when he was 5 years old). This dog will viscously try and attack another dog through a fence when I let him out of the kennel. This is going to blow the minds of the Goody-two-shoes and the phooo phooo Halty and Clicker people that read my web site - but I have stopped this dog’s fence fighting. It took three 30 second training sessions. I simply told him “NO” and hit him over the head with a kennel shovel. The reason it took three sessions was because I did not know how thick this dog’s head was - I really had to whack him hard on the third session to get his attention. Now he knows that there are consequences to fence fighting"
