You're right - this thread - ANY thread about CM - always turns out "annoying" because it ALWAYS turns into the pro-CM people -vs- the anti-CM people. No real basis on either side, just a truckload of opinions that really don't mean squat.
If I haven't already - I'll make it more annoying...
Think I'll start a thread to learn more about the man. Haven't seen his show nor any DVDs. Watched VS the first year we had Ziva. Wasted $$ on ME videos - couldn't even GIVE those away, so they're in the city refuse pile somewhere...
But there ARE sub-forums here that discuss aggression, playing the "alpha" role, etc. Today's-dogs-descending-from-wolves mindset... Which makes as much sense to me as saying we should all be walking around eating bananas & swinging from trees.
There's a lot of "theories" out there - some of them even funnier than others. IMO.
And no shortage of opinions. Gosh - no wonder we had such a hard time finding a decent trainer. And don't get me started on the charlitan "animal behaviorists" in our area.
Think I'll come back as a cat in my next life. No one will tell me what to do. No baths. No silly "sit" "stay" commands. No trainers, famous or otherwise. Just eat, poop & purr.
