Wait, if I read it on the Internet, there's a possibility that it's NOT true?

If you have an issue with him pm him, but seriously, relax... You have opinions like everyone else, threads are moderated as they are seen; moderators aren't paid and have a thankless job (thank you moderators! ) and take abuse they don't deserve. You obviously have an issue with another member, but this isn't the thread (nor is there a thread for that purpose), you just end up getting yourself moderated...

I would add a thought on advice... Text is very cold, there I no emotion until the reader inflicts it upon themselves, depending upon their mood this can be good or bad. If you think something was offensive, leave it, come back to it later and reread, often it will be viewed in a different light and perhaps good gleamed.... Finding advice or things that work for you does not always mean that everything that doesn't conform to your ideas is wrong or obsolete. Keeping an open mind (looking for perspective) can often help in other ways, even if primary opinions differ (like ideas of things done differently but implemented in another situation) Keeping things civil and conversations moving in a friendly way benefits everyone

"Ideally, someone giving advice (as opposed to someone sharing their own personal experiences and opinions) should have a real name and verifiable credentials and not stand as an anonymous person".

Excellent post, thank you. It seems that sometimes, the more experienced but un-credentialed folks (although well meaning) forget that that there is usually more than one way to achieve a goal. They have their ways of caring for and training their GSD's, but their way is only one of many.

I too have been alarmed at some of the "diagnosis" posts. For many GSD owners, vet bills are a consideration and they may be prone to taking advise here and not consulting a Vet as soon as they should. I have also seen posts questioning a Vet's diagnosis, causing un-necessary additional testing and expense to the poster with the problem.

All said, this site is the best resource for basic information on the GSD that I have found. Thanks moderators - for moderating!

I'm a guy, so my ability to take advice rivals my ability to pick up a map and read it when I'm lost
