Well...I see what you mean. But I have a feeling that the people who are that easily put off about something like that are (probably a small set of people).... aren't going to have the staying power to raise and train a puppy well in the first place. Most who pick up a dog behavior book are probably going to tend to be receptive, at least enough to perk up their ears and listen. If they let something like that get to them in place of taking in the truth about dogs, then they are probably not going to be very wise dog handlers anyhow. It takes patience to raise a dog. But yeah...I know what you mean about the delivery. It isn't so good to chase anyone off. I'm having trouble writing my book so it doesn't come across that way. I have the exact same tendancy, maybe a little milder, but still....It's hard to keep the emotion out of it when you see so many dogs abused and mistreated for one simple and collective reason....that they're dogs and they behave like dogs.
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776
