The recent incident involving LCK getting booted off Psychology today represents the type of divisiveness which has split the dog training community down the middle. While I have never met Mr Kelly in person I understand he is a nice guy who cares deeply for helping dogs and their owners. His mistake however was attempting to free think with a publication that as a whole is a mouthpiece for the trash science agenda while being overrun with academics who are elevating their careers and reputations on the back of this bridge to nowhere ideology. The clock was ticking on LCK the moment he decided to question the very tenants of this Pharisee belief system.
The subsequent high fiving by the loyal followers of this ideological nightmare merely demonstrates the self serving arrogance which is clearly getting in the way of seeing dogs as they really are. While it is disappointing what happened to LCK my biggest disappointment us that Psychology Today is not in the form from which I can start my evening fire.
