Re: “Dog Eat Dog

In response to the previous trainers comments on utilizing a slip collar (choke chain) as a method of training. I have attended an obedience class conducted by Mr. Yanez, who in fact utilizes the slip collar technique which prior to Richard, I too was opposed to. The first lesson taught was how to become the "alpha" dog in the relationship between you and your dog. The first step was facing your dog, looking it in the eyes, and performing what seemed to be a mezmorizing massage that the dog thoroughly enjoyed! The second step was how to use a slip collar CORRECTLY, otherwise you could seriously injure your animal!! Mr. Yanez taught us all a catching phrase to remember each time you put the collar on to ensure safety of your pet. The third step taught that unless your dog is out of control, the corrections made are small and quick, which allows the dog to hear the noise of the chain vs. actually choking the dog, which would be inhumane! Mr. Yanez is, by nature as well as by trade, a more aggressive, domineering personality. Mr. Yanez is not however a person capable of "abusing" any animal. I am a frequent customer of The Dog House and will continue to support both Linda & Richard and hope that this unfortunate mis-reporting of facts does not damage their business that they have worked so hard to build!! Linda, please keep baking fresh cookies for our dogs...your customers know and love you. As for IHS and BW, you are both in a position to really make a difference in the lives of Animals in the treasure valley. I too have called upon you (IHS) regarding animal cruelty issues in the valley and i got the one and only meridian officer that gave me some song and dance story of why they were unable to help the 1 pound yorkie chained up in the back yard on a 3 foot chain in the middle of below freezing temperatures with no relief from the elements, no water, and no food!?!?!? How about if BW & IHS team up to focus on getting a law passed making animal cruelty a felony in the State of Idaho rather than reporting a story based on very little merit, yet enough to potentially ruin a small Idaho business owner!
