Apparently I skipped that section because I don't remember that at all. I certainly don't buy into dragging ones dog around, I guess I'd have to reread the books (it's been years) and see what the context of that was.No, I wouldn't say that. Alpha rolls, skruffing, etc. That stuff I consider very old school. Prongs and "ehhhhs" not so much.
When there are photo illustrations of how to drag your dog around by the neck...yes, that is a big old school.
