What do you think of this "training"?

Training an aggressive pitbull

I personally think the dog it TOTALLY stressed out by the end of the (so-called) training.

I think the dog could have been taught to be nice around people WITHOUT using the e-collar and a prong ... but not in "10 minutes". But since we are a quick-fix society it's what we want - regardless of the effect on the dog.

I would of liked to have seen a follow up of the dog a week or month later, they kicked the dog's ass and the dog learned he couldn't win this fight.

Didn't watch the video yet, but in 10 minutes, they just buried all his rage. One day, he will snap, and it will be a lovely shade of red splattered all over.

Quick fixes may work when you have to patch a hole in your wall, but they never work when it comes to behavior. We really are a "I want it NOW" society.

Now compare that "training" with the training used in this story:
