Its Me Or The Dog: 2/7/09 episode

Did anyone watch this? I watch the show regularly. I found this episode strange in that I wondered 'why doesn't he just crate the dogs while he's at work' and 'why doesn't he just crate the female in a different room when his friend and her female come over?' This was the man with a female pit and a male pit mix. Victoria Stillwell must not believe in crating.

Re: Its Me Or The Dog: 2/7/09 episode

I saw it. I though the same thing about using crates. Really shouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out!

V.S. doesn't like crates for the most part, though I HAVE seen her recommend one ONCE. (And yet a few episodes before that she berated the owner for using a crate. )

What I thought about the "friend" is "LEAVE YOUR DOG HOME STUPID"! Why on earth would anyone with half a brain take their dog to someone elses house when the home owners dog wants to kill theirs?

I also wonder about her use of the nose collars, as I think their is a large consensus that they are hard on the neck muscles. When the male wouldn't sit on command, I was thinking get a prong on that guy and give him a quick little correction. He absolutely knew what she was asking but just refused. And walk the female on a prong. If the owner worked with rescue so much, you would have thought he knew these things! That poor guy was a wreck and his dogs weren't even THAT bad.

That V.S. doesn't like crates or use prong collars doesn't surprise me at all. I'm an expat Brit, and had dogs in the UK, where dog ownership is very different. I never recollect seeing or hearing of people using crates and as for prong collars...

Re: Its Me Or The Dog: 2/7/09 episode

I've read before that in the UK many people don't agree with crating dogs. As for the headcollar I think it depends on how they are used.

Re: Its Me Or The Dog: 2/7/09 episode

Dog owners in the UK don't crate dogs the way we do here. I think it's just a cultural difference

Re: Its Me Or The Dog: 2/7/09 episode

I think the head collars work very well for many dogs, especially those with aggressive issue. Gives good control of the dogs HEAD and it's mouth. So she'd not using it so much as an obedience training collar (sit or down or heel or whatever) as for use in controlling the pulling or aggression, and it seems ideal for those situations.

I do think she used to not be a fan of the crates but she DOES seem to be coming around a bit on this one. I say good for her for being open minded enough to accept new things.

I'm sorry, but whenever I think of that show, see the commercials or watch it, the ONLY thing I can think of is Stains...

Re: Its Me Or The Dog: 2/7/09 episode

My thoughts were the same why not crate them it seems more logical. I would love to see shows do more follow-ups on these people (and see what really) happens in the end.
