In the coming weeks I will be completing numerous videos exposing the trash science of dog training and those promoting it. I will be showing the facts and connecting the dots to help others gain insight into this very serious issue involving this ideology which more often than not does not promote the level of relational change needed between dogs and owners. Those who promote learning ideology as the second coming to the dog training world are playing a shell game when it comes to learning theory and the dominance issue. What I clearly show is that response does not always represent relational change is taking place as dogs go through the motions of the learning script via motivating agents such as treats. Those who are overselling this ideology are not qualifying the type of influence taking hold between dogs and owners via response. Further they are not putting the dog's decision making process to the test to see if unwanted behavior is diminishing. The standard is if it looks good and feels good it must be good. Many who accept this ideology at face value are failing within this script and don't even know it until they return home with their dogs where the real test takes place. What I show is that dogs are relational beings and their decision making process is influenced at this level. Those who promote this ideology as a type of end run around bringing a dog under leadership are not going any deeper than what is seen from the surface. Many people are being deceived. I would encourage those interested in knowing the facts to check out my videos where I will be breaking this ideology apart and revealing the truth.
