The first piece of advice you NEED is ALL behavior problems
are CAUSED BY MISHANDLING and can be rehabilitated NEARLY
INSTANTLY, if you know HOWE.
HOWER dog lovers are predominantely liars, dog abusers, and
active, untreated, mental patients who are themselves largely,
VICTIMS of thesame same same same kinda ABUSE they dish HOWET on
their own dogs and children and everyWON they contact.
It's a CANCER in HOWER society: "The son of a slave, is a
slave," a Creole Expression. They've gathered here like lepors
in a colony, and their disease has spread thru their helpful
advice to visitors seeking help, and their active involvement
in breed, shelter and rescue organizations who are MAKIN MONEY off
of HURTIN and KILLIN dogs to train them to perpetuate their LOVE
of HURTING and KILLING dogs to compensate for their fragile
defective ego's, weak fear riddend minds, and inferiority

Spaying / neutering can cause aggression and temperament,
behavior, and health problems in 15% or MOORE of HOWER dogs.
S / N is largely UNNECESSARY and INAPUPRIATE risky surgical
mutilation done HOWETA FEAR of "intact" animals and their
natural instincts and to compensate for inapupriate,
incompetent "management" as practiced by paranoid psycopaths
who will do and say anything to defend their alleged RIGHT to
HURT and KILL dogs as they see fit, and to defend their
miserable careers and reputations.

Breeding and S / N has NUTHIN to do with the problem.

Tough break. That's not uncommon as dogs mature. Dogs FIGHT
because they're INSECURE and do not have a close family pack
bond, or they'd NEVER fight.
Aggression is TRAINED by MISHANDING, taught by abusive mom dogs
and incompetent human handlers.

That's on accHOWENT of they're both AFRAID. That's on

The POINT is HOWER DOG LOVERS got NO METHOD of dealing with these

resort to drugs avoidance and DEATH. That's ALL THEY KNOW HOWE to
That's all they know HOWE to TEACH. And THAT'S HOWE they're gonna

A muzzle will not stop the FEAR, and may increase it. HOWEver,
you could rely on it temporarily while training to compensate
for YOUR FEARS, which will help you overcome the PROBLEMS
which you've got to learn to address through EFFECTIVE, NON
PHYSICAL, SCIENTIFIC and PSYCHOLOGICAL conditioning and
desensitization techniques as taught in your FREE copy of The

ASK The Puppy Wizard if you have any difficulty applying or
understanding the Method or Techniques.
> I'm looking for a viable alternative to putting the older
> dog down
KILLIN dogs is not an effective method of dealing with
MISHANDLING, in fact, it's PART of the SYNDROME of ABUSE
passed from generation to generation and dog lover to dog
A DOG IS A DOG. ALL BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS ARE
CAUSED BY MISHANDLING.

The Puppy Wizard doesn't KILL dogs to give them a BETTER

Welcome to rpdb.

Right. Gettin rid of dogs is likeWIZE, not an option to
compensate for MISHANDLING.
> Please help...
The Puppy Wizard has carefully read all the replies to your
question in this thread. CuriHOWESLY enough the liars mental
cases and dog abusers who've replied have had the same same
same same problems and have soved their dog / dog / human
aggression by KILLING or DUMPIN their critters.
When we get involved in aggression questions the fear mongers
reflex to the paranoid thinking which has brought us the
pronged spiked pinch choke and shock and aversive spray
devices they rely on to train their own dogs, and of curse,
youth in asia and dumpin dogs to solve the problems they
themselves have caused.

It's Kay here. I don't know who these people are that
maligning you and your training manual but tell them
from me that it does work.
Hunter is just doing so well even the people who
advocated putting him down are impressed with him.
I even started using it with the neighbor's dog. I went over
there to help her cut his nails. She started yelling at him
for growling at me. I told her to tell him what a good boy he
is instead. Lo and behold he stopped growling and I could do
his nails. All 4 feet.
My dog Hunter was trained with the old jerk and pull method
and my other dog was trained with treats. Hunter has gotten
his enthusiasm back for his training and I couldn't be more
He even tried to kiss a child the other day.
Major break through.
This is the dog that a few months ago tried to eat the kids
through the fence. I can now take him in the car with me again
without him trying to chase cars through the windshield.
So Jerry tell these people that the first rule of dog training is:
Do No Harm.
The 2nd rule is whatever works without breaking the first rule.
Aggressive dogs don't need to be put down. Hunter was
diagnosed aggressive and he is going to stay alive and by my
side where he belongs.
Thank you so much. Kay

5) ABUSED DOGS AT THE SHELTER I WORK AT - HAD TO BE FED WITH A
BUCKET ON A STICK - ONE WEEK ON JERRYS MANUAL, THE SUPERVISOR
TOLD ME TO PUT THEM IN THE PUBLIC KENNELS FOR SALE !
Quite amazing to - I thought they were just dull coloured
dogs, but after I had removed the fear and anxiety their hairs
coloured up amazingly.
6) STAFFY FEMALE who would NOT DROP HER BALL! She carried it
around all day and night - 3 DAYS on jerrys MANUAL and she now

Date: 2002-03-01 03:15:50 PST
I have two mungrel females; the breeds exactly are Blue Heeler
(spots) x Kelpi (dominant genes) x American Pitbull
(behavioural) x Pug (don't laugh!).
They are gentle loving dogs when I'm at home with them, and
they are friendly with unknown people. They are sisters. One
is obviously dominant over the other, and I don't have a
problem with that, however;
Their behaviour is very odd. Some days they are very good
whilst I'm walking them, some days they are not. They are 3
years old and have only been walking for about 12 months
because my mom didn't walk them and now I'm home so I walk
them for about an hour and half every afternoon. I take them
to the park where they chase birds and swim in the lake.
This is my problem :
The less-dominant dog viscously barks at every other dog we
walk past; I have tried using a stick and giving her a tap
when she does it, and treating her with treats when she
doesn't, using a choke chain, a muzzle and a thing that sprays
stuff in her mouth when she barks.
She won't stop! Does anyone know how I can stop her? ]
Also, the more-dominant dog seems to know this is WRONG, when
the other dog barks, she doesn't bark, but she nips at the
other dog as if telling her to cut it out, and then the
barking one attacks the more-dominant one and they fight on
the leash... it is quite disturbing to the people walking
And also the more-dominant one is okay around other dogs...
SOMETIMES... sometimes she completely ignores them, and yet
other times she will attack them, like yesterday. The less
dominant one I must keep on a leash if a person brings there
dog to the park.
How do I stop them attacking other dogs? I have tried all the
methods I have used above for 10 months every afternoon. Is it
just a pac k-behaviour thing?
It can really be quite embarrassing when your dogs attack some
old lady's or little girl's dog.
They are good dogs, when at home or when there are no other
dogs around. Today there were hundreds of sparrows flying
around the park and they were chasing them and jumping up
trying to catch them for more than 90 minutes (They went
straight to bed when I bought them home!).
Can anyone help me? Email me at my emails address,
ali...@wasp.net.au coz this list is tooo crowded.
Here's two Pauls:
Well, let me tell you, your Wits' End Dog Training Method
My dog, Dasie, Loves to chase chameleons around the barbecue
on the patio. I used this system on four different occasions.
When she went out today, she looked everywhere else but the
barbecue. Amazing, just amazing.
I will write to Amanda about the video.
I am really excited to learn more, and understand. Maybe just
a little reassurance that I am going about it the right way.

Wizard Sent: Thursday, August 07, 2003 8:00 AM Subject: Geday.
I see nothings changed on the NG. Still the same old crappy
advice and misunderstanding of the only advice worth reading.
The problem with your method J is that I can't answer the
questions on the NG no more, people are after a quick fix,
they don't want to understand that dog training requires a
disiplined method, I'm now really understanding that they are
all result orientated, they want the dog to sit, to down, to
stay, to come, to stop it's "bad" behaviours, they want to
stamp out each anxiety one at a time not realising they create
a new one as they deal with the last.
I feel sorry for them, they don't understand, they don't even
realise the errors of thier ways and they arn't self thinkers,
they follow the majority, after all if everyone says thats the
way then it must be. I've finally realised people don't want
to learn to train dogs they want a trained dog, they want a
little puppet that sits and stays and downs and does all the
nice doggy stuff or so they think, then when the dog acts like
a dog they come squealing to the NG asking how to stop the dog
being a dog.
I have a nice little visulisation of a dogs mind that I think
demonstrates the way we approach dog training. Imagine lots of
little circles all in a cluster, each one representing a dog
anxiety or behaviour ( desied or not), each circle represents
something about the dog, all of them create what a dog is.
The traditional way to train a dog is to stamp out the "bad"
circles, try to eliminate as many as you can, problem is each
one you stamp out another takes it's place (anxiety circles
can't be destroyed they just change), obviously it's a futile
exercise, but thats the traditional way.
Now imagine a big circle that completely surrounds all the
small circles, this big circle is the whole dog, that's what
we get hold of with all the little circles inside, we don't
see the little circles we see the BIG circle the macro as you
put it and use that to train.
I laugh now when I see posts critisising you, they are
critising something they don't even understand or even have
the capacity to understand.

It's possible to teach a dog not to eat out of a cat bowl
without too much difficulty.
My dogs don't touch the food in the cat bowls although Roz
licks up any bits that have been dropped around the bowls :-)
I used a can with stones in it to create a distraction anytime
the dogs tried to eat the cats food, followed with immediate
praise. It worked a treat.
The cats bowls are down all the time, usually there is food
left over but the dogs don't eat it, even if we go out and
leave the dogs with access inside through a dog door.

everyone would have obedient dogs.

Paul B (NOSPAMpa...@clear.net.nz) Subject: Good dogs!!!
bad dogs.?? Date: 2000/10/21
Something occurred this morning that made me think how we
treat our dogs and what expectations we have of them.
Because it was a Saturday we slept in and the dogs eventually
jumped up on the bed on my wife's side. After a brief greeting
she very abruptly demanded they get down, "OFF THE BED" she
insisted, Sam looked at her perplexed, so she repeated the
"order", so Sam tried to lick her face, "GET OFF" she said
Sam got down but was unsure what he had done wrong. After a
bit they both came over and jumped up on my side, I patted
them etc and eventually asked them to get down, "off the bed,
good dogs" and they hopped off immediately with no prob's.
Eileen asked me why they obey me and not her so easily. I told
her they got down for me because I asked them to, they know
the command "off the bed" or "off anything" so there is no
need to demand it of them, ask them and they will comply,
demand it and they get confused because they think you are
annoyed with them but they don't know why so they try to "make
amends" which is why Sam licked her.
I have found giving dogs "payment" in advance i.e. "Sam sit
goodboy" makes the dogs want to respond, after all, all dogs
want to be "good dogs" and if you tell them they are good then
they feel an obligation to obey your request.
Telling Sam he's a good dog after he sit's apart from been too
late is also a gamble because if he doesn't sit then there's
no positive interaction.
Trust your dog, ask it to do your request and say "good dog"
sincerely at the end of the request and I bet you'll find your
dog thinking then responding everytime.

That's why I support Jerry Howe and his FREE Wits' End Dog

The core takeaway I got from Jerry's manual is this: make
yourself the center of your puppy's world - - his personal
Lord Jesus. Never give him a reason to fear you or think
you're angry. Love the heck out of him, and you'll end up with
a great dog.

MENTAL ILLNESS IN RPD*
Mental illness is a public issue in these newsgroups. People are
always running around calling other people mentally ill and
their illnesses. I think it's only fair that we have an accurate
list of who
is and who isn't mentally ill, so that we can avoid any
and promote group harmony.

Sorry Puppy Wizard, but urine marking is DEFINITELY NOT a behavior
caused by anxiety. The dogs (Male & Female) who mark their territory
are generally supremely self-assured, confident dogs.
Urine marking is a hormone linked behavior. It generally begins about
when the puppy begins to hit puberty (some a little later) & is
exhibited by both sexes, but predominantly by male dogs. A male puppy
neutered before he starts exhibiting this behavior will not generally
hike his leg much (if at all).
However, once that testosterone rush hits a puppy & he starts marking,
the behavior becomes a learned behavior & he will continue to hike his
leg, even if neutered. He won't be quite so driven to mark every
single vertical surface he coems across, but marking will not entirely
If you're having problems with an intact male marking indoors,
neutering is usually recommended & generally helps reduce the behavior
occurrence inside the house, but may not completely eliminate marking
Anyway... back to female dogs marking. They most definitely do, not
all of them, but some. Some of them mark their territory like male
dogs, on vertical surfaces, (think bossy female Alaskan Malamute or
Akita) but others will just go around hiking a leg while squatting. I
initially thought my female Basenji-mix puppy didn't want to get her
feet wet until an animal behaviorist I know well & trust started
laughing at how my dog was "marking" every few yards or so along the
way as we were walking our dogs one day. This was when my puppy was
maybe 6 months old & she had been doing it for a couple of months
Submissive peeing, on the other hand, IS related to anxiety. But
submissive peeing is not marking. A submissive peer is generally a
very submissive dog, & punishing this kind of behavior will only make
it worse. The best way to eliminate submissive peeing is to ignore it
& work on boosting the dog's confidence.

HOWEsbreaking is INSTINCTIVE. Dogs DO NOT mark
their "dens." If you got a dog MARKIN in the HOWES it's
PROBABLY NOT sexual, but rather, ANXIHOWESNESS.

Okay, I gotta speak up here... We've been using Jerry's
methods with our dog. We had the same problem as the
original poster has with Buzz. One day working with the
family pack exercise and practicing the recall command
with the family and she'll now go out with hubby and
daughter instead of needing me to reassure her or even
refusing to go with anyone but me.
I really urge you, regardless of the negative things you
might hear about Jerry & Wits' End here, to try the method
and *judge the results for yourself*.
Let's see what other areas she's improved in... always
comes when called, not chewing stuff even if we leave
it laying around, "re"housebroken after long shelter stay,
walks perfectly on leash, doesn't try to steal food from
our plates or beg... probably a few more things I'm
forgetting to mention. *(Yeah, the kats lay off the koi
and don't wander. jh).
That's in about a week's time.
Her overall demeanor has changed. When we brought
her home she was very untrusting and ultra-submissive
(except with her area/toys where she was possessive and
She had been abused and beaten by previous owners,
then she was in a shelter for months. They (most of them)
wanted to give up and kill her Now she's gained confidence
and trust with us. Last night was another big breakthrough
(in my eyes). She barked! Big deal, she barked just once
when she heard the front door. Great!
Anyway, you'll be told lots of nasty stuff about Jerry or that
the Wits' End manual is culled from other sources. In my
opinion, even if it is, it takes only the good stuff and leaves
out the bad. Works for me.
(And I suppose I gotta say this... I don't know Jerry personally.
I've emailed him and instant messaged him. I have not bought a
"Doggy Do Right". He's offered help for free.)

Your reply doesn't even pertain to the subject...
Why don't we discuss why you feel you need hurt
animals to "train" them?
I've actually met TPW. I called him a few times with questions
about the training method, and he realized that there were some
Axel (my dog) had a special situation.
So, TPW met with us in our home.
The first thing he noticed was that Axel's collar was too tight.
Weloosened it, and immediately Axel calmed down quite a bit.
We went outside and worked on the HOT AND COLD
HANDLING EXERCISE and THE FAMILY PACK LEADERSHIP EXERCIZE. That
seemed to get us headed in the right direction, but we were still
having a few problems with Axel's anxiety.
The main reason TPW visited our home - I found this our
recently during one of our conversations- was to see how
my husband and I interacted with one another. I had been
following the methods precisely, but Axel was still having
TPW's assumptions were correct - we were causing alot
of Axel's anxiety with our arguments and tension. TPW
told me that Axel has been one of his most difficult dogs
to work with.
Axel had his anxieties from mishandling and from my
husband and myself.
We had a few problems because I was unwilling to
accept the fact that I needed to be "nice" eventhough
I wasn't being treated "nicely", but once I realized that
was the only way I could really get Axel past his anxiety,
I worked on being a loving wife (even though I didn't really
want to be).
AND GUESS WHAT? My husband saw the difference,
and he followed suit.
Now, we have a stress free dog, and a good marriage.
Can you tell me how forcing someone (dog, person, cat)
to do what YOU want them to do, is going to improve a
situation? I tried that with my husband and with my dog,
and it didn't work with either of them.
Your methods have an 85% success rate - and my dog
was one of the 15% that doesn't accept your methods.
TPW has 100% success rate. You do the math.
If TPW hadn't helped us, Axel wouldn't be where he is today.
Subject: Ask The Puppy Wizard
> my husband believes that this product is like ecstasy.
Well, for ME it IS... it's a dream come true. I got to ask
the Mrs. to keep pinchin me to believe it myself. My
DDR works like an AUTOMAGICK bio feeback trainer.
It uses a gentle sound, a beat, to entrain the brain,
like as if you was humming your favorite song. When
the critter is faced with a stressor, he AUTOMAGICKALLY
reflexes to that comfortable state of mind, to "hide"
from his fears. With repetition, the fears are "collapsed"
or over ridden, by the pleasant "tune."
There's a child psychologist currently testin DDR on
his hyperactive and learning disabled patients.
> Will this product in any way harm my dog?
Absolutely not. I've tested it on HUNDREDS of dogs
and kats whom I've known well and closely observed
over many years before offering my DDR for sale. It's
giving me better reports from users than I'd ever
imagined possible. It even stops cows from "bellowing."
> He has a severe anxiety disorder and cannot be left
> alone in our apartment -whether in his crate or left
> to roam free.
O.K., that's the problem! The crate in itself causes fear in
a twofold manner. Many dogs fear the crate because they
can't go to relieve themselves or have water, or become
anxious because it's a safe haven, a refuge he can run to
in order to hide from THINGS that scare him, like loud
noises, guests, whatever. Every minute he spends hiding
in there, increases his fears about what's goin on.
With repetition, just entering the crate even willingly,
restimulates ALL his fears, even when he goes in of
his on volition for no particular reason.
> We have tried just about everything...
Well, you just got LUCKY. I've got a comprehensive manual
available for free on my website. STUDY IT. Do the exercises,
and ask me for help if you've got questions or have difficulty.
Follow the method EXACTLY, don't vary, and ask me for help
FAST, if you don't get 100% success, nearly instantly.
There's absolutely NO reason your dog should have to
suffer separation anxiety for more than two days.
> This is our last resort.
First thing you've got to do is teach him your HOWES is his
HOWES, and that no matter what, you'll never be cross with
That'll give him the confidence to stay alone withHOWET
supervision. Separation anxiety has nothing to do with
your absences, it's got to do with not having his controller
in charge of his behavior.
> Until we find some way to train him,

Good. Take a couple of days to study and practice the techniques
withHOWET your pup, then go pick him up and DO the exercises
in a couple of locations on your way back to your HOWES.
> Will this product help me get my Axel back?
The method and the machine both rely on constant praise.
The machine does a much more thorough job of convincing
the dog everything is O.K. It'll usually calm any anxious
outbursts in maybe as little as five seconds, for a dog that's
been conditioned to it for a few days. After a few months of
use, you'll not need to use it except on occasion.
I'd give you more info about the machine, but you got
enough reading ahead of you in my manual. Just rest
assured that if you desire the very best for you dog my
DDR machine will do just that. It's money back satisfaction
guaranteed forever cause there ain't nuthin better than it
in the Whole Wild World. You and your pets will LOVE it!
But start the manual first, cause that's gonna break the
cause of his anxiety.

It's a smallish box with ac adapter. It emits a "song". A sound
unheard by the tympanic membrane. It regulates brain waves
and calms the subject down. I got mine yesterday.
I have two pitties, my neighbor on one side has an infant pitty
and the other neighbor on my left has a pitty mix, greyhound
and pig. Her dogs bark CONSTANTLY!
All hours of the night.. she lets em out for last call around 1am.
We put ours on our kicthen window sill so the animals outside
and inside can hear it. Anyway.. for the first time my dogs slept
I also did some training with jerry and hise wife yesterday,
between that and the machine my dogs ignored the dogs barking.
A mere quiet growl from my oldest dog, a good girl good job! and
she went back to sleep.. an abolsolute first in this house.
My nieghbors dogs continued barking.. the machine was
not set to play.. so i reset it.. and they shut right up.
The whole nieghborhood was quiet for the first time.
Neighbors dogs are still behaving today.
I will be loaning it to my father in two weeks, once my dogs
remember the "song" and can learn to replay it to themselves
to calm themselves down, for his cockatiel who is home alone
alot.. and very bitchy.
I will also be buying one for my mom for her feuding kitty cats.
And finally I will be buying one for my friend who has two dogs
and a child with major seizure problems. I think this device will
help her daughters seizures since it controls and regulates brain
Since i'm not rich.. and these machines are $135 with shipping ...
when i say I am planning on buying three of them for friends.. you
know it works. I could always let them borrow it for free.. but
this machine is so kickass.. they need their own so their
neighbors dogs can be happy too.
Here's Aimee's original post and her first post to
The Puppy Wizard:
I own a black an tan coonhound. We got him as a puppy, and
due to constant mishandling (pulling on his lead, negative
corrections, and the occasional use of a bark collar) I ended
up with a very anxious dog.
I couldn't leave him home alone, I couldn't crate him, I couldn't
even take my dog for walks because he feared EVERYTHING.
I was going to have to get rid of him if things didn't turn
My husband and I searched the internet for answers - AND
WE FOUND THE PUPPY WIZARD.
For all of you disbeliveers out there HIS METHODS WORK!
I've followed his manual, and we now have a dog that can be
left home alone, that heels on command, that can go outside
and NOT be afraid of everything he sees.
Not only have his methods help our dog, but our marriage
has gotten better. We had fallen into a rut - constant bickering
and tension, we never laughed or had FUN together - but now, with
the same mindset used in THE PUPPY WIZARDS dog training, our
communications channels have opened, and we
now work together instead of against one another.
For all the "Literalists" out there, NO WE DID NOT
TEACH EACH OTHER TO SIT, STAY, OR HEEL.
We simply eliminated the nagging and the acting out to get
NEGATIVE attention from one another since we weren't getting the
POSITIVE attention we wanted.
So, it's been proven - THE PUPPY WIZARDS METHODS
WORK. It's up to you to accept them. Yes, there's alot of
blame that we have to accept, but once we realize that we've
caused these problems to arise, we can strive to make things

Absolutely. Murphy always pees over the top of other dogs' pees. She lifts
one leg up off the ground (but doesn't 'cock' it like a male would).
She used to hump her sister too.
I'm a little concerned in fact that, when we (hopefully) get a puppy later
this year Murphy will end up dehydrated from peeing over the top all the
time! Hopefully the novelty will wear off (also slightly concerned that
if/when puppy has an accident in the house Murphy will also go over the top
