Default problems with training?

I just found an awesome dog training forum. A dog trainer owns the forum and you can ask him any questions, it can be very helpfull. take a look http://www.leerburg.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/Cat/0

My advice where that guy is concerned is to run as fast as you can the other direction.

I agree with the above. His methods are VERY strong and physical. Granted, from what I understand, many trainers who work with dogs for protection use the same/similar methods. But those are for dogs from working lines! Going by my personal experience, there is HUGE difference from a dog from working lines and a dog from non-working lines, even if they're the same breed! Do not go to this guy for advice on a pet.

that is one of the worst training sites on the net.

they even give out false info about fitting prong collars - in a way you can do some really serious damage.

Well I dont understand why you think he gives out wrong information about prong colars. just because you think they are cruel, does not mean that they are. in fact, choke chains are worse. I have used prong colars and they work great.

I don't think Mordy was criticizing prong collars. Just the way this site in particular advises them to be fitted.

Leerburg?! I don't think so. This guy advocates kicking the sh*t out of your dog as a method to get him to stop jumping up. I've read through the entire Q&A forum before too, so I know what he says. Maybe if you have a super-dominant, super-aggressive dog...but for the normal dog? RUN.

I havent read through much of the Q&A yet, I just read a little and it did give some good advice. but I will go back and read more because you might be right. The advice he gives on how to fit a prong colar is correct though.

I have read thru alot of this site at one point or another.
I can see why some people would run the other way, but I have found him
to be informative, but rude. Terrible "bedside" manner but I do
believe alot of what he says. Especially the information on breaking up severe dog fights.

I never believe everything I read on the web, I just take what I want and leave the rest.
