It probably is a good thing I don't have any kids.

Contacting Amazon, directly, would be more efficient.
I contacted Amazon directly and received a very nice email back saying that the my message was sent to the proper department and that Amazon values customer feedback.

I was satisfied with the response from Amazon. I am a regular customer and felt that contacting directly was the best method for me.

So rather than using some aversion training, she would rather kill a critter.

If I am totally in left field on that, someone can please correct me.

lalachka I don't know about that story and there are idiots everywhere. And they def help the ar agenda

selzer I have to say though, when the Boston-looking mix showed up to class wearing a tiny prong collar, I guess I can see their point. The pup is 11 weeks old, and weighs about 3 pounds. The collar is too big for it, and draped all around its neck. The guy with the dog is over six feet tall, big guy. Why he needs a prong collar on a baby puppy is beyond me, and he isn't doing any prong collar people any favors.

lalachka Lol my cat has been peeing on the stove for years. It's amazing to smell boiled cat piss once we start to cook thankfully we don't do it often lol

I see. I was talking about this in another thread. I met this really good positive trainer. She dubbed anyone who used force as lazy and said there's no excuse for it. She was very knowledgeable, very passionate. I had a friend with a problem dog so I figured she can help him.
I was stunned when she said not only she couldn't take him on and he should be euthanized but she recommended euthanasia more than she cares to think about.

If your methods don't work on all dogs then you have no right to knock those that do.
My not so humble opinion lol
