Musings of the day
Today we take a closer look at a dog behaviourist ( more and more seem to spring up like mushrooms and far from knowing what they are doing are actually killing dogs due to their inadequate knowledge about dog behaviour and training). Most did an online course, simple as that. Ca-ching!!
One in particular is desperately trying to make the news at present, perhaps due to failing TV audiences?
If you have a dog with behavioural problems I suggest you do not contact her. Let’s quote the Terrier Man himself:
** If there is anything more perverse than Victoria Stilwell injecting herself into the last days of Lennox’s life, I do not know what it is. Stilwell, who put herself out there as a dog trainer before she even owned a dog, has proven that she cannot work with a biter, even when that dog is nothing more than a Cocker Spaniel. See the video below for confirmation on that point. **
Quite interesting, don’t you think? And also quite revealing as to the motives behind the support she is professing to give. Support for whom? Her own ends, me thinks.
What I am missing here is an outcry about the thousands of Bull Breeds dying in Pounds across the world, the ruthless breeders, the idiots who buy the dogs as status symbol, the list is endless. Ms Stilwell is silent on those and always has been. But then again, she can’t handle a Cocker so how on Earth could she handle a Bull Breed with behavioural problems?
Simple, she can’t.
Hindsight is always 20/20 but none are so blind as those who will not see.
So if you happen to be an owner of a dog with a problem, do your homework, shop around, ask other dog owners. And often the problem can be solved with a simple solution: common sense.
