INTRO TO WITS' END DOG TRAINING MANUAL
George von Hilsheimer, Ph.D. F.R.S.H.

Several years ago one of my old students telephoned
to me and asked me what I knew about Doggie Do
Right, a device to cause your neighbor's dog to stop
barking.

I had not heard of the device, nor its inventor, Jerry
Howe, but I telephoned, read his website, and told
my graduate that I thought the device was worth a
trial - indeed I shut up the dogs in my neighborhood
by turning on Jerry's supersonic device.

After all we all know that dogs respond to whistles
humans cannot hear, so why not respond to "attaboy"
sounds which humans cannot hear.

My student lived far from my Florida homestead, so
he tried it on the three incredibly savage, hyperactive
and noisy dogs who lived behind a tall fence just 3 feet
back of his bedroom.

Hot rats! The device worked,

Andy got his sleep and I didn't think much of the
matter again.

A few months ago I had new neighbors on each
side of my house, four of them, all with noisy
unshuttupable dogs. Argh!

So I foned Andrew in Virgina, received the intelligence
that his neighbors dogs were still quiet, and then I foned
Jerry Howe, the inventor of Doggie Do Right, who came
to visit me.

Merlin walked into my office.

Jerry is a slender fellow with a belly button lenghth grey
beard tapering down his chest. I liked him immediately,
and I applied his instrument to the neighborhood again
which again became silent.

It occured to me that if this ultrasonic field worked with
dogs that we ought at least to ask the question, what
happens to humans in range of the device???

I asked Jerry to give me a list of customers and began
inquiring among them. One thing became immediately
evident. The Doggie Do Right not only shuts up your
neighbors' dogs, it calms and modifies your husband's behavior.

Holey Moley, Captain Marvel, this device has major potential.

In the meantime Jerry gave me a copy of his Wits End
Dog Training Manual. I was delighted. He also introduced
me to the world of professional dog trainers some of whom
even have Ph.D.s in psychology.

This was not such a delight as it appeared that none
of these luminaries had actually read Skinner, Lazarus
or other fountains of wisdom in psychology. Indeed, it
seemed as though they knew very little about the laws
of behavior at all!

Punishment and confrontation seemed to be their
major stock in trade.

Well, if you go to my website, www.drbiofeedback.com
you can read of the career of Sam Corson, I.P. Pavlov's
last student.

Sam demonstrated that rehabilitation of hyperactive
dogs can easily and readily be done using TLC, tender
loving care is at the root of the scientific management
of doggies.

Pavlov told us so 100 years ago.

So what are these degreed morons doing punishing
dogs, and shouting "NO" into their doggie faces? If
you pick up B.F.Skinner's last book, CUMULATIVE
RECORD, included in it is an essay by Keller Breland
and Maryann Breland entitled THE MISBEHAVIOR OF ORGANISMS.

Skinner deliberately included his students' chapter
to emphasize that you cannot manage the behavior
of animals unless you take into consideration 1. the
animal's evolutionary niche (who is the animal?);
2. the animal's personal history (who is the animal?)
and 3, the instinctive repetoire of the animal (who is
the animal?) and 4. the personality of the animal (who
is the animal?).

The Brelands moved far from the white rat. "Thirty-eight species,
totaling over 6,000 individual animals, have been conditioned, and
we have dared to tackle such unlikely
subjects as reindeer, cockatoos, raccoons, porpoises,
and whales. "

Jerry Howe spends most of his times with dogs, but
he has learned Pavlov's lesson well. Dogs are individuals,
they are individual DOGS, and they respond most directly
and immediately to love and tender loving care.

Read with pleasure, and then go love your dog.

Subject: DOGGIE DO RIGHT, wanna join the party?

Andrew, Jerry Howe is here as I type and we have decided to
create a human mellowing branch and to sell the marvel mystery
device. Here is my first draft. What do you think?

George

Friends and colleagues:

A couple of years ago I became interested in Doggy Do Right
(DDR) a sonic device which inhibits barking in your neighbors'
yappy dogs. I tested the instrument and became pleased at the
silence in our neighborhood.

I perused the manual for the DDR which has significant
guidance for loving your own dog so that the wee beast no
longer leaps up on you, howls, whines, tears up your shoes,
escapes, digs holes, spins around, throws up in the car, eats
paper, self-mutilates, fears thunder, suffers when you go to
the store and don't take him, and all the other ills and
behavior problems to which the domesticated dog is prone.

Jerry Howe, the inventor of the DDR, understands doggy
behavior so well he might well have been a student of Sam
Corson (Pavlov's last student who fixed hyperactive dogs, and
started our profession, as well as the profession of "Pet
Facilitated Therapy").

It occured to me that we might put ourselves out of work. If
a sonic device can mellow hyperactive dogs, why wouldn't it do
so for hyperactive kids and neurotic adults?

So, I am inviting a few friends and colleagues to join me in
forming a company, which will lease BABY BE GOOD; HAPPY
BOY; SWEET LITTLE GIRL; MAMA BE MELLOW; PAPA BE
STRONG - these are just first pass names for the device in its
several adjustments. Jerry Howe, genius inventor says you
have to refine the adjustment for .

More than a thousand owners agree that DOGGY DO RIGHT
happifies the dogs next door so they don't bark. DOGGY DO
RIGHT also happifies the dog in your home so that she doesn't
do all the unwanted, unpleasant things that dogs often do.

AND!!! DOGGY DO RIGHT happifies the humans in your
house so that they are more mellow, happy, quiet and not
so dratted obsessive and angry.

Problem here. Is this therapy? If so the poor little silently
singing device needs $4,000,000 to do an FDA study.

THANK GOD! IT ISN'T THERAPY!

It is the same effect that Baroque music has on emotion, learning,
behavior and memory. Baroque music mellows and enhances and
so does DOGGY DO RIGHT.

Of course, these wonderful results have to be proved, by
acceptable means.

=======================

Jerry, don't think I sent this to you. A remarkable success
for DDR - I keep wanting to call it, Doggie Be Good, DBG.

Maybe we ought to try it as an alternate name! Set up your
own competition.

Fondly, George

I have to agree with George. I found out about this and asked
George to look into it. Got good results, so I bought one. I
have 6 LOUD dogs outside my back window, chained up all the
time, less than 50 feet behind the house. They used to keep me
up nights until I bought the DDR machine. Now, quiet.

Yes, they bark when someone gets too close at odd hours, but
then they stop. Used to be they would bark for hours. (Their
owner must wonder what happened, I called the cops a couple of
times, but didn't want to drag him into court.)

The inventor is visiting with me. I am severely impressed.

So, I wanna know, do you wish to explore with me the marketing
of this device.

Greg tried the machine out; Andy has one; I can't recall if I
told John about it or not. You'd love the guy, he looks like
Johnie Appleseed before his hair went white, long black
beard, but no bs.

Not defensive at all when I asked the hard questions; a bit of
an idealist when it came to making money, but he's sold a
thousand of the damned things, and has some very solid
references.

I ran his EEG when the instrument was broadcasting and
damn it changed the brainwaves. Hot rats.

I think we could do good, and do well, too.

The point of it is that my evidence is that it will calm down
kids, stop seizures, and mellow out their parents. We have to
prove this, but he already has a psychiatrist with excellent
comments; and me; and sampling his sales will build a lovely
package. 1000 sold already.

I made another trial with new dogs just up the street and the
damned things shut up. The dogs next door have remained
silent since I first tried it a year ago.

What ya think? George

A non dog owner, Dr. Von, a child psychogist and

at the request of one of his friends who wanted his
opinion as to the efficacy of my machine. He loves
the concept, as it mirrors his approach to educating
difficult children:

I just had a nice talk with the man who invented
the "doggydoright" device.

If you know someone working at a shelter etc
who wants to quieten the dogs in the neighborhood
then this is an ideal present for them - and he will
sell it at a discount. He sounds like someone we
all know who has no sense at all about money.

Nice, nice man.

"doggydoright" may be obtained from
T*d@EarthLink.Net

I now have four locations at which the thing has worked,
so I recommend it.

Yap yap yap no more! I have zero financial interest in this.

Shucks, I mentioned how Jerry Howe, the Puppy
Wizard, teaches how to eliminate the need for
punishment, including time out, and forgot to give
Jerry's website http://www.doggydoright.com

Jerry is a perfect example of teaching using fun,
humor, and effective methods. Pedantic, Jerry
is not.

If your neighbors' animals are driving you crazy,
his ultrasonic device is amazingly effective.

BIOSOUND Scientific
Doggy Do Right (And Kitty Will And A
Rooster Did And A Cockatoo Or Two Did Too)
The Little Black Box That Cures Animal's Annoying Habits

Thank you for your recent inquiry regarding my Doggy Do
Right (And Kitty Will And A Rooster Did And A Cockatoo Or
Two Did Too) device. We are now shipping immediately.

There are special rebates available for humane societies,
rescue organizations, and anyone working with rescue or
having special needs, regardless of affiliation with a
bona-fide shelter organization.

INDEED, I DO make EXTRAORDINARY claims regarding my
Doggy Do Right (And Kitty Will And A Rooster Did And A
Cockatoo Or Two Did Too) machine, and I BACK IT UP with
my UNCONDITIONAL 100% money back SATISFACTION
GUARANTEE FOREVER, including paid return shipping and
two year full, free repair/replace warranty.

Doggy Do Right (And Kitty Will And A Rooster Did And A
Cockatoo Or Two Did Too) costs $150.00 plus $10.00 S&H
total $160.00 domestic (other countries shipping varies).
Shipping overseas is an additional $25.00, total price
$185.00 US, and is refundable should my DDR not meet
your satisfaction.

Your animal's happiness and your satisfaction are
paramount to me. I've specialized in temperament and
behavior problems for forty years and share my knowledge
freely. Just ask me if you have ANY animal behavior
questions or would like the latest edition of my FREE
Wits' End Dog Training Method manual.

Do not confuse the DDR machine with my FREE Wits'
End Dog Training Method manual, they are two separate
entities. Their only commonality is they each validate the
other.

They both employ non force scientific and psychological
techniques I've developed and relied on over my forty
years specializing in animal temperament and behavior
problems in mostly giant breed and protection trained
dogs. The DDR requires NO study or special knowledge
or ability to use.

If your veterinarian or behaviorist have questions about
my BIOSOUND Scientific technology or any of my training
advice I'll be happy to talk to them.

Pick up the phone and call me right now to speak to the
inventor and trainer.

My BIOSOUND Scientific Integrator T. M. Doggy Do Right,
is a high-frequency psycho acoustic behavior modification
device, a copyright sound program, in some regards like a
Zen meditation or Gregorian Chant.

BIOSOUND Scientific's technology is based on proven
scientific and psychological principles (state conditioned
learning, the Frequency Following Response to facilitate
brain wave entrainment, Pavlovian conditioning and de-
conditioning, Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques
like matching, pacing, anchoring, and flooding, the
Relaxation Response (Dr. Benson), and accelerated
learning techniques similar to those of Dr. Lozanov and
the Tomatis effect.

Doggy Do Right employs complex waveforms that dogs
cannot resist listening to, and people cannot hear. Doggy
Do Rights' soothing signals match and pace and are soon
matched and paced by the parasympathetic nervous system,
entraining the brain to follow the waveforms.

Within three minutes, most dogs will begin to yawn,
perhaps take some water and come to a sit, due to the
stimulation of endorphins.

BIOSOUND Scientific's technology changes behavior by
stimulating information brain waveforms on the cerebral
cortex, holographically. Relaxation, entrainment, and the
release of brain hormones override a situation or
stimulus previously producing anxiety. In other words
we condition new, good information brain wave patterns in
association with stressors. Subsequent introduction of
such a conditioned stimulus causes the memory of those
stressors to be flooded out with new, good information
about a given stimulus.

Since single brain neurons cannot be inhibited and
excited at the same time, by flooding the brain with a
calming agent, be it narcotic, electric, or as in the
case of BIOSOUND, sonic, causes the inhibiting neuro
transmitters such as endorphins to be locked into
receptor sites.

This prevents or blocks out the effects of excitatory
transmitters which the limbic system is producing in
reaction to anxiety producing external stimuli, such as
thunder, car sickness, separation anxiety, aggression,
etc.

Given the correlation between personality patterns and
functional brain wave states, it would reason that to
alter brain wave patterns would facilitate the ability to
allow more variations and changes in cognitive states and
behavioral responses at the neuronal level.

To simplify; we persuade our subject to listen to Doggy
Do Right (flip the switch), and fall into an extremely
relaxed state (wait 2-5 min.). Present the stimulus,
such as thunder, doorbell, etc. BIOSOUND Scientific's
technology constantly reassures the subject that every
thing is O.K., and through conditioning, the stimulus is
associated with calm acceptance.

Because the brain wants to reflex to its most successful
state, further simulation will consequently stimulate
thoughts of calm and well being, thus overriding or
flooding the stimulus, which would normally institute a
fight or flight reaction.

Here are a few publicly posted, verifiable, unsolicited
testimonials:

Elaine McClung, President of Pet Rescue, Animal Commissioner
Brevard Co FL, writes: Sep 9, 2000

"I ordered from Jerry a long time ago.. He was helpful
and the order was filled promptly. Yes, Doggie Do Right
does indeed exist.

I "had" a very aggressive female Pit.. She was showing
aggression not only towards Dok, Rhodesian Ridgeback,
but our cats and even us.

She now plays with Dok, even to the point of allowing him
to take a toy or bone from her. She no longer shows any
aggression towards us. She is showing some aggression
towards the cats but that is down to a warning growl.

It is not just my opinion that all this aggression
existed before Doggie Do Right as we were advised by
three vets to euthanize her.

I do very much believe that DDR will help JR as I know it
has helped my dogs and cats. I do think your product is a
valuable tool in helping with aggression and other
behavior problems.

I am in Feral CatNetwork (we spay and neuter
approximately 100 feral cats a month), I am also a member
of a local AKC dog obedience club, member of a local AKC
agility club, president of Pet Rescue, board member of
the Alliance for Care and Welfare of Animals (on the
board are: county commissioner, vet. rep., rep. from AKC
dog club, CFA cat club, assistant County manager, head of
animal control, director of two different shelters, etc.)
and Space Coast Feline Network

Thanks, Elaine,

===================

Hi Jerry,

I wrote to you a week or so ago about the unit. I have
since borrowed one from Elaine Mc Clung. She speaks very
highly of it.

So, I brought it home and plugged it in. Of course, I
wanted it to come on, all the barking stop, and have
every one immediately fall to the floor in little comas
for a few hours. Well, after I got all 27 of them to be
quiet, still no comas. But, it had only been 36 seconds
at that point. So, I gave it a little longer. Still no
comas. Was this really going to work? I mean, I do have
an unusual situation.

So, by bedtime, a few hours later. I started to notice
just how many were asleep already - with their feet in
the air! I started to have hope. During the night, all
was calm. In the morning when I got up, only a few of
them WALKED quietly to the door to go out. Not the usual
evacuation.

I had the unit from Sunday afternoon until Tuesday
Morning. I was certainly pleased with the night effect. I
wasn't so sure about the amount of the day time effect.
Until I took it back. Within half an hour, the monsters
had resurfaced. I wondered if I could break into Elaine's
house and if she would notice :)

I know another person who does dog rescue. She rescues
Beagles. She has 23 in an 1100 square foot house. God
bless her. She is interested to see if it will work for
her. I also spoke to someone else who does cat rescue,
and she is interested. The cat rescue people have monthly
meetings. Maybe Elaine could give a word or two about it.

So, if there are any words of advice you can send my way
about the best way to use it in my case, I would
appreciate it. I of course wanted to keep it on the
highest setting, but don't know if that is advised, even
with my situation of so many new ones coming and (too
few) going.

Also, how I and others can go about getting one, etc. I
think the vets should have the info in their offices. It
must help dogs with separation anxiety. My vet practices
homeopathic as well as traditional medicine, so I would
think it would be right up her alley.

Thank you. Desiree M Webber A New Leash On Life

jerry first i want to thank you for the BIOSOUND
Scientific Integrator and also for your training manual i
first got the Biosound when maggie was a puppy and it was
great help in getting to relieve stress or to relieve
stress in her when we added riley to our family we had
some tense times as you know rily was 15 months old and
had had extensive training ,but was very set in his ways

biosound relieved his stress from the change that took
place in his life mixing with maggie has been a wonderful
experience for us watching them play and react together
is a real pleasure they are both very good therapy dogs
and Biosound helped us get them started and to stay on
the right track thanks for everything

Subj: Fear of Thunder Date: 6/29/02 6:07:13 PM Eastern
Daylight Time From: Jraltman To: Witsenddog

Dear Jerry,

I hope you'll be able to post this message so more people who
are at their wit's end will be able to help their dogs.

To review:

Our puppy was uncomfortable during thunder storms. At the
beginning of the problem, she paced restlessly from room to
room. She couldn't settle and sleep.

>From there the problem grew. She would run to the far
>southeast corner of
the house (which makes sense because most storms here come
from the northwest) and she'd cower in the corner of the couch
and shake.

!st attempt to help her:

I'd pick her up, brush and massage her (call me a nut - I've
sung to her when I've done her daily brushing since she was
tiny so of course I sang too) and when she relaxed, I'd put
her in her crate. She then slept and I thought the problem was
solved.

Traumatic event:

We were out in the park playing with one of her doggy friends
when it began to rain. On the way home, there was the loudest,
longest, thunder clap I've ever heard. From that day on, the
problem got worse and worse. I couldn't calm her with singing
and massage. The fear spread. She wouldn't go out if it was
raining. No thunder, just gently summer rain, and she wouldn't
go out.

The solution:

I surfed the net and came across a free manual Wit's End Dog
Training Method and a product called Doggy Do Right that
seemed better than anything else I came across.

A phone call to Jerry Howe, author of the manual and Director
of Research, Biosound Scientific, convince me to try both the
manual and the product.

Problem solved:

I followed Jerry's suggestions (more phone calls - he is most
generous with

his time and advice). The first two thunder storms my puppy
was restless but not running around in a blind panic. The
third storm, she barked her deep, stranger danger bark after
each clap of thunder. The fourth storm, she seemed uneasy at
first. Soon she was asleep at my feet and she napped through
the rest of the storm. A miracle. I am endlessly grateful to
Jerry for his manual and his machine.

A word about Doggy Do Right. It is odd to buy a machine that
emits a sound I cannot hear. I took the chance because Jerry
offered a full refund including shipping. Though I heard
nothing, my puppy clearly did. When I first turned on the
machine, she got the cutest, most quizzical look on her face.
She looked at me as if to say: "What's that? I never heard
that before." She looks at the machine when it is on. She
rests on the floor beneath it. It is obvious from her behavior
that she is aware of its cycles.

Amazing.

Thank you Jerry.

Engrossing account, Anthony. Our best to Angel

A friend, who socializes the kittens I've taken
from a feral cat colony, is using the DDR.

She reports far fewer panic problems than

Hi There Jerry

Its Nevyn. Sorry Ive not been posting, but I've been working
weekend work at the tracks with the greyhounds (thanks to
you!).

Well my dogs are the envy of all on my street. I can have them
out in the yard with me, take them walking without a leash,
they will do any command with no hesitation. And they don't
bark anymore! Thanks to your machine!

Oh yeah, I loaned your machine to several friends and family
-- Here are some reports:

"I would say my dogs are well trained, but they suffer severe
anxiety when no body is home. This machine quietened them
almost instantly - still they barked, in the beginning, but
just one or two barks. Then slowly they just stopped...
beginning to bark, then instantly stopping.

It took only 2 weeks, and we did nothing.

Truly amazing;

I have recommomeded it to my family, and perhaps they will buy
one. Its a shame you don't sell them publicly". -- Kylie, 30,
on dogs Lili (11 yr mutt bitch) and Sheeba (4 yr Rotty X)

"My two dogs barked insanely when someone would go
past. With this little machine they quietened right down,
and even became partly obedient, and we did nothing!

Great stuff.

We ran it only on the lowest setting, too!" - Ed, 65, on his
two male Dobermans, 5 yrs old.


Well I have some more, and am collecting more, but I only have
one machine so its a slow process. Once again I say thankyou
Jerry! My family was on the verge of giving them up! :(

But no longer :)

Dear Jerry-

I just wanted to let you know how wonderful your Doggy Do
Right product is. I was skeptical at first, but have been
tremendously pleased.

As you know, we had a neighbor's dog that was extremely
bothersome, at times barking loudly for 3 hours straight.
Within a few days, the barking decreased, and now it is
just the occasional bark. this dog lives approximately
500 feet away, and even at that distance, the machine has
done wonders.

You were always available and patient to answer my
questions, and now I can be in my own home without going
nuts from the barking. As an added pleasure, all the
other minor barking nuisances in the neighborhood have
stopped as well.

Quiet is wonderful! Thank you.

If you know someone working at a shelter etc who wants to

Ahhh yes, the hallmark of a dog abusing coward.

Here, geniuses, try this:

Here's an alternative from one of our more intelligent posters:

HOW TO FILTER POSTS ON NEWSGROUPS
WITHOUT KILLFILES

A SUPERDOG STATION EXCLUSIVE

I've found this incredible way to filter posts which I want
to share with you all, actually, I've been using it for a
few years now and you won't believe it when I tell you how
powerful it is...I know this sounds complicated, but all you
have to do is look at posts/threads, decide which you think
you might want to read, and then read them. The ones you
don't want to read, (listen carefully now...you don't
read).

You see, you actually use something called your "BraIN" and
believe it or not, your eyes cooperate and if your "BraIN"
tells them not to read something, they won't. Of course,
your hand has to cooperate with your brain by not clicking
unless it is told to.

Sexual predators, Heads of State, mimes, and people with
Parkinson's Disease often have trouble controlling their
hands, but most everyone else should be okay.

Scientists have proven the filtering ability of the brain
with double blind experiments in Rhesus Monkeys. Of course,
many critics argue that doubly blinded monkeys are rendered
poor subjects for experiments involving sight and/or
perception, but what do these yahyahhing critics know
anyway?

Anyway, this "BraIN" thing is really cool. Many of you
people should try it sometime. It's good for other things
besides newsgroups too! You can impress all your friends
and neighbors with it, and you can even use it to seduce
older teenagers like Britney Spears, middle-aged teenagers
like Christina Aguilera or even brand spankin new teenagers
like Mandy Moore, if they live close by.

DISCLAIMER:
(please do not trespass on private property to seduce
teenagers, regardless of age, unless you get written
permission from their parents or guardians).

HOW TO USE YOUR BRAIN IN NETSCAPE
Instead of filtering people, I filter threads and posts. I
typically read about 10-20% of the posts here, because I
don't have time to read them all....in Netscape, I just read
the ones I want to read, then I hit SHIFT-C (which marks all
messages read)

Or...the long way by clicking up top

Messages--->
Mark---->
all read

Then I just close the window and I'm done. Then next time I
open it, only new messages appear. If I find an interesting
thread, where I want to go back and read the whole thing, I
can go back and mark the whole thread unread and read it.

I assume that I and my wife are those two naive childs since
I freely admit to having read and, I hope, understood enough

putting up with a constant barrage of really infantile crap at
the hands of supposedly adult dog lovers.

The other naive child (LSW) has to put up with the nagging
idea that if people like them had been posting earlier, maybe
we would not have had to hold the head of a really
magnificent animal in our arms while he was given the
needle and having to hug him and wait until he gasped
his last gasp.

To my mind, "naive" is believing you can terrorize a dog into
good behavior. Naive is believing that people that hide
behind fake names are more honest than people that use
their real names. Naive is thinking that dilettante dog
breeders and amateur "trainers" like Joey (lyingdogDUMMY,
j.h.) are the equal or better than those that have studied and
lived by their craft for decades.

"Stupid" is believing that people do not see kindergarten

people like Jerry Howe and Marilyn Rammell are going to
just go away because you people act like fools. Why do you
act like fools? I really have no idea, and I don't really care.

I don't now whether Peach is dead or alive. I do know she's
not here with us. I really can't blame anyone here for her
loss. I'm the one who ignored your advice.

I did it because of how you write/wrote. I was unwilling to
accept the idea that my using a shock collar could have any
bearing on Peach not wanting to stay home.

Up until I started using it my main concern had been keeping
my dogs in their own yard. Once I started using the
e-fence...well, then my concern became how to keep them from
running off for days on end.

I lost valuable training time becoming embroiled in the
anti-shock debate and the "Jerry sux" tirades.

I lost one dog but I have the bestest dog in the world now <g>
A Wits End Trained dog, one who is completely housetrained,
doesn't chew up stuff, stays in the yard, and doesn't bark all
the time.

IOW a great companion and friend.

We just installed a PetSafe brand fence this Spring. Two dogs,
two collars We now have one dog and no collars.

Peach and Zelda would run thru the fence, not want to come
back in the yard and would run for days. The last time, Peach
didn't come back home.

I used the Wit's End Training Manual to learn how to train my
dog. She is now border trained. A few minutes each day
reinforces her desire to stay in the yard.

She no longer runs out into the road, I can stop her from
chasing cats and she no longer cringes when we walk around the
yard.

I can not say loud or long enough how much I hate the e-fence
and its collars. If you can't get a regular fence then you
need to train your dog. I will never rely on an electronic
collar to keep my dog in our yard again.

The price was too high:-(

Jerry has taken the time to help me out off the NG. I have a
very loud cockatoo who has been having problems adjusting to
my 8 month old son.

Joey is learning to walk. He likes to use Buddy's cage as a
hold on for dear life object.

Buddy wasn't exposed to toddlers prior to Joey.. my older two
boys went through this stage in a different house where Buddy
had his own room and the boys had only visits, not daily
contact 24/7.

Buddy has always been spooked by "tiny" humans. Joey has been
driving him nuts! He showed his disapproval by non-stop
screaming. A cockatoo scream can be heard a block away with
all the widows shut <g> being in the house it makes your ears
pop and your nerves crawl.

Jerry sent me Free his DDR. He sent instructions on how to use
it. He answered my questions quite politely.

I have been using the DDR in my kitchen ( where Buddy is
located~ teensy 4 room house) for 3 weeks.

At first I noticed no difference in Buddy's behavior. Then I
realized after a week that he no longer screamed for hours on
end. This isn't to say he stopped completely <bg> he still
demands his share of all meals. But he doesn't start screaming
at 10 pm when he wants _everyone_ to go to bed.

Last week he had a day where he screamed all day. My nerves
were frazzled. I went to turn the DDR up a notch per Jerry's
instructions. I discovered the DDR was shut off!

I turned it back on and left it on the lowest setting. Buddy
calmed back down and quit screaming.

In the time that I've had the DDR on I've had a lot of c*ts
come to my house. One I adopted and he's quite the sweetie.
He's a yellow tiger named Gatomon ( means c*t monster) who is
very friendly with my kids and Zelda.

I may not like how Jerry treats other posters but I do like
the methods he shares. Being on a limited budget I like things
that are free. I also like the fact that I can e-mail him and
get advice whenever I need it.

Even my DH who is a technical minded kind of guy thinks the
DDR is working. ( He went to Devry and has a degree in
electronics, knows alot about radios and anything
mechanical... he's a jack of all trades around the house <g>).
He does NDT for a living.

We don't expect to need the DDR forever.. As soon as Joey is
walking, Buddy will realize that he's not a strange animal..
some kind of furless dog or c*t <bg>.

Your dog's lives obviously aren't as important as your

She's got to work harder than you or me ever thought of, to
keep whatever little is left of her mobility, poor dear little
crippled thing she is with that awful out of control GSD of
hers. That dog should be put to sleep, he's bitten her
repeatedly and is dangerous to one and all.

The good people, lee? What good people, lee? The good people

There's no good people here, except me and a couple of my

natural trainer, a fatherly guy, who understands dogs and

Thank you, but no thank you, lee. Sorry lee, we don't

Your collective word is worthless. In fact, you could
RUIN my reputation by endorsing my methods.

That's what I told your pal booby maida when HE offered
to endorse my methods if I'd lay off him, "I'm only trying to
make a living" he cried to me... I told him if he didn't post
anything I couldn't criticize, I wouldn't criticize him.

Next post from booby was talking of my mumzie bein a

Do you think that's a wise idea, lee? The dog may try to

Thanks for writing--I would be happy to do almost anything to
get your approach out to dog owners as I know it would save so
many lives. I know at times I was so frustrated I thought of
giving up on Sunshine but of course I never would have but
many people would have. The world just does not know you can
train a dog in just a few sessions and actually solve
problems.

We will be here until late April and we really have no plans-
-just to enjoy the warmth and sun of Florida, so any time you
could meet us would be great. I drive so I would be happy to
come to you anytime anywhere!

We went to Celebration today and two little poodles got right
into his face and he just sat there--I GOT a little scared but
he handled it just fine.--a couple of times people would ask
his name and want to pet him and he just went to them tail
wagging and rolled over for them rub his tummy.

He really just is not concerned about people passing, even
those on rollerblades! I have always used a gentle leader in
public but he spent most of time rubbing his face on the
grass--today I used his collar and he was so much happier!!

Only problem is he will stop to smell and I can not get
stopped soon enough to keep the leash loose. He never pulled
ahead of me but when he gets into smelling I have a hard time
getting him going--at times I think he could smell a blade of
grass for 10 minutes.

I can never thank you enough for giving Sunshine back!!!!!

I wrote to Purdue and told them about him being able to walk
in a crowd with out the /gentle leader and not having a
problem with other people and dogs.

I told them their advice did not work. Their advice was to use
the gentle leader at all times and when he was around people
or dogs to have him sit and reward with treats--one really
good suggestions was to have people coming toward us stop when
he got stressed or aroused and not move until we backed away-

- can you just see me yelling at people to stop on the street
until I get his attention with treats.

They also suggested the possibility of using drugs-prozac- but
thought he was too dangerous as the drug would make him less
fearful and then he might attack or become more sure of
himself and become dominate aggressive. Just had to share
their great advice with you but I am sure you have heard it
all--even I am becoming an expert on bad advice.

aggression - Today Seemed Like A Miracle - WELCOME TO WITS'
END DOG TRAINING!

Will try it today and post how well this system works. We went
to a dog class that I had enrolled in for
resocialization--getting him to not lunge and try to attack
every dog he sees, we were at the third class and I forgot the
Halti but he was relaxed and had no problem with any of the
seven dogs-

-in the past he would shake and after a little while turn away
from the dogs and look at the wall. Saturday he wanted to
play with the dogs--he actually pulled toward the dogs- kinda
jumped around like he use to do before he became aggressive-
when he got close to another dog.

Teacher was impressed with him but thought it was from her
class--I didn't tell her anything different-she had tried but
it sure was not working.

Today on our walk a dog went by and he alerted but did not
move toward the dog and when I called him he actually came
with his tail wagging and forget about the dog.

I have told everyone I see about your dog training- -all my
friends and neighbors know I have been so worried and
frustrated with Sunshine's behavior-infact some would turn
around and go the other way so as not to get close to us.

If people knew how easy it could be to get a dog to come and
listen to you there would be a lot less dogs in shelters.

I know I didn't know what to do and was afraid I would have to
kill him if he bite someone even though I loved him so much.

Sunshine is still acting like a new dog!

Saw a dog today and "good boy-" worked along with calling him-
came the first time every time. Not even a sound out of him.

Think it is hard for him but he never even seemed to think
about going off-reacting.

The word come has no affect on him just the phrase--Sunshine
come goodboy.

Yup. You've got to generalize the come command to make it 100%
reliable. MISTAKES ARE GOOD. You want him to make a few
mistakes so we can get the sound associated with the command.

> I have not tried to call him off leash outside as that is
> the time he is does not come.

O.K. You know to do the HOT & Cold and Family Leadership
Exercises and you'll have a perfect come command in a couple
fifteen minute sessions.

> was starting to explore the leaves etc.

Excellent. We discussed his penchant for eating leaves and
dirt off the ground.

> He walked past several people today with hardly a second
> glance-

We also discussed that he was rather aggressive, and you were
becoming very concerned about being able to keep him.

PERFECT. Next time you'll probably not need the sound. Just
remember to vary the origin of the sound each time, day in to
day out, the sequence never breaks.

> Now what do I do when he sees another dog?

You'll tell him GOOD BOY and prepare to make the sound and
praise if he continues looking, and if that fails, you'll ask
him to come, keeping in mind the sequence of the commands with
sound and the distract/praise techniques.

You'll get used to thinking that fast in a couple more days,
no problem.

> Although the calling him the four times seems easy it was
> very hard-

Yes, it takes a bit of a knack to get it just right, but if
you fail, not to worry, you'll be able to get it right the
next time. We don't lose points for "do overs" as long as we
get the pup under control fast and EZ. That's HOWE COME that
dependable come command is so necessary.

> -I had a friend which was good since I had a lot of trouble
> calling the right way and using the can at the same time.

Yes, I recommended you may want a friend to help because of
your disability.

> I found out I had been calling him many times each time I
> called him to come.

Right. Should be about a second between requests and the
sounds on the second and fourth commands and move off into the
FPLX if that fails, and continue the technique.

EZ, huh???

> I am still working on the leash it is really hard when you
> are not standing upright as the leash can not be as loose
> since it drags on the ground-

Yeah, I don't know if you're able, but do try to handle the
lead exactly as instructed. It'll feel uncomfortable for a few
days, but we don't want that lead tangling and accidentally
pullin on him.

>-I am so worried without the leash around my hand

Psst! If you've got fair strength in your hands, let me do the
worrying for you... O.K.?

> but I am not sure if it was the leash,

Well, you know I told you it was the overcontrol of the lead
that triggers positive thigmotaxis, the opposition reflex.

> telling him good boy everytime he looked at me

That ALWAYS works. All my Mrs. got to do is tell me good boy
and I'll do anything she asks. Hey? I think I just figgered
out HOWE COME she always gets her way with me...

Any sound will suffice, even an extraneous and coincidentally
but well timed sound will work, maybe even BETTER.

Naaah. There's nobody that has such fast EZ safe gentle
methods. I'll be on TV soon enough with my Doggy Do Right (And
Kitty Will And A Rooster Did And A Cockatoo Or Two Did Too)
machine.

But that's just gonna give me the floor to discuss the state
of the art of the animal behavior industry.

Would you do me a favor? If you're on the internet, I'd sure
appreciate it if you'd repost this to the groups, a lot of

Excellent.

Me too, but not with your problem. This one's EZ!

He's gonna be EZ. He's not even thinking about you when he
bites. He's just overexcited trying to PROTECT you. That'll
diminish immediately through simply handling the lead
properly, gettin the control and attention through the praise
conditioning, and distract/praising his aggressive thoughts
before he gets out of control.

EZ stuff.

Sound/praise and repeat as necessary. Just remember to always
vary the direction the sound comes from. You might need a
helper to produce the alternate sounds in time.

He'll straighten out in a couple days of EZ work.

Yes, but he wasn't conscious of YOU, he's in a fury protecting
you.

That would complicate and slow things down.

At least he's consistent. That's GOOD!

Not to worry, that'll be past history in a couple days.

It is. Just follow the techniques and ask me if you need any

Everything you've tried has relied on bribes force and
confrontation.

And instead of trying to force him to stay in control, you'll
PRAISE his first aggressive thought and he'll move in close to
YOU to protect you, not charge at others. He'll learn FAST
that you want the aggression and he'll want to use it BEST for
YOU, so he'll do EVERY THING you ask the first time.

I'd LOVE to have a hundred dogs just like him today.

> I use a Halti so he does not pull me over-usually!

Right, but here again, you're relying on some degree of force
to control him. That will ALWAYS trigger the OPPOSITE of what
we want, telling him to be aggressive, not to pay attention to
you and your safety.

Once he sees THAT, you're gonna need a shoe horn to PRY him
AWAY from you.

In fact, when you WANT him to attack someone all you'll have
to do is let him see someone and gently pull back on his
collar without sayin nuthin, and that'll set him off...

Good, that'll make it REAL EZ to teach him my methods.

Fine. We'll forget the treats and use the click differently
for our puporses.

No need to. It's already DONE.

Do me a favor? If you could keep a record of our discussions

I participate in, it'd be a great benefit and inspiration for
others in the same or similar situations.

Robert Crim writes:

I assume that I and my wife are those two naive childs since I
freely admit to having read and, I hope, understood enough of
the manual and it's counterparts by John Fisher and the posts
of Marilyn Rammell to believe and use it.

This naive child would like to say thank you to both Jerry and
Marilyn for putting up with a constant barrage of really
infantile crap at the hands of supposedly adult dog lovers.

The other naive child (LSW) has to put up with the nagging
idea that if people like them had been posting earlier, maybe
we would not have had to hold the head of a really magnificent
animal in our arms while he was given the needle and having to
hug him and wait until he gasped his last gasp.

To my mind, "naive" is believing you can terrorize a dog into
good behavior. Naive is believing that people that hide
behind fake names are more honest than people that use their
real names. Naive is thinking that dilettante dog breeders
and amateur "trainers" like Joey (lyingdogDUMMY, j.h.) are the
equal or better than those that have studied and lived by
their craft for decades.

"Stupid" is believing that people do not see kindergarten
level insults for what they are. Really stupid is believing

Seems they FEAR DDR cause it SCIENTIFICALLY
PROVES all behavior problems are CAUSED BY
MISHANDLING, stress from punishment confrontation
and withholding bribes affection attention and confinement
to avoid the cunning behaviors of the domestic puppy dog
they don't have the INTELLECT to HOWEtwit OR THEY
WOULDN'T NEED to HURT and KILL THEM. Would they.
Like THIS:

the crate - leave the leash on and pass it through the crate
door. Attach a line to it. When he barks, use the line for
a correction.

- if necessary, go to a citronella bark collar.

Jerry!

You helped me with my pal Dundee about a year ago
regarding submissive peeing. Just wanted to let you
know he's doing great- he was "cured" in about 2 days
using your techniques!

He has since become the "smartest dog in the world"!
Once I stopped thinking like a human and got inside his
head, I can teach him ANYTHING, usually in a matter
of minutes. Makes me look like an expert dog-trainer.

I rescued two strays last week, cleaned 'em up, wormed
'em, and am getting them their shots. Time to get inside
their heads and teach them to teach themselves how to
be good dogs!

Instead of feeling like "training" is a chore, I look forward
to working with these guys a couple times a day...

Although I don't follow your instructions "to a T", I learned
from you to "think like a dog" and stimulate their brain
rather than beating ass or pinching, or any of that nonsense.

I know damn well I would NOT be loyal to someone
who beat MY ass lol!

Well, just wanted to thank you for rattling the bushes
out there and teaching folks the RIGHT way to "train" dogs.

A horseman friend of mine uses very similar techniques in
training his horses- he calls it "natural horsemanship". He
is hated by nearly all the local "trainers" yet somehow he
repeatedly wins at every show he attends. He rarely shows
any more, but goes now and then to rub their noses in it
(pun intended)... Too cool....

Have a great holiday season and keep up the good work!

This naive child would like to say thank you to both
Jerry and Marilyn for putting up with a constant barrage

adult dog lovers.

The other naive child (LSW) has to put up with the
nagging idea that if people like them had been posting
earlier, maybe we would not have had to hold the head
of a really magnificent animal in our arms while he was
given the needle and having to hug him and wait until he
gasped his last gasp.

To my mind, "naive" is believing you can terrorize a dog
into good behavior. Naive is believing that people that
hide behind fake names are more honest than people that
use their real names. Naive is thinking that dilettante
dog breeders and amateur "trainers" like Joey
(lyingdogDUMMY, j.h.) are the equal or better than
those that have studied and lived by their craft for
decades.

"Stupid" is believing that people do not see kindergarten
level insults for what they are. Really stupid is believing
that people like Jerry Howe and Marilyn Rammell are
going to just go away because you people act like fools.

Why do you act like fools? I really have no idea, and I
don't really care.

That's the standard fare when force and abuse as
you train, cause the loss of a dog's life. I've seen
dozens of cases exactly like Robert's,and there will
be more coming in the next few months, right here
in this ng.

These are not unusual, weird dogs, or incompetent,
lazy, inconsistent handlers.

These are people that started off doing the very best
they could, and were given toxic information.

The kind of information you and your ilk here like to
recommend, the kind of information that ruins dogs.

That's just an observation over thirty-six years of working with
people that have been in the same spot. I'm sick of seeing that
happen, but I'm wild that you and your ilk continue doing the same
to others.

> Similarly, I think you are also assuming too much

I think your assuming everybody is as thick as you.

That's because you weren't reading to learn, you

That's easy for you to say. Robert is no different than
the dozens of other victims of the kind of training methods
you "experts" recommend.

Toxic information, bad handling, poor reasoning, and
reactionary abuse.

Have you had to kill a dog because he had a bad
temperament? If you have, then you should realize
now, that you could have done things differently,
and would have had a decent outcome.

Maybe the guilt won't allow you to be honest with yourself.
Maybe for you to admit that the methods you are using are
wrong, will someHOWE in your mind negate any good that
you've experienced during your career with dogs.

Maybe admitting that you've been doing things ass
backwards all these years is just too much for your
ego to take. I can imagine Howe difficult it would be
to contact everybody you've trained, to say, "forget
everything I told you about training your dog, I just
found out that it was all wrong."

Maybe you should just face facts, and start over, before
the guilt that you will accrue from now on, will not be
expiated by reason of not knowing any better, because
by now you should know. If you don't, stick around, I'll
help you figure it out.

of the manual and it's counterparts by John Fisher and the
posts of Marylyn Rammell to believe and use it. This naive
child would like to say thank you to both Jerry and Marilyn for
putting up with a constant barrage of really infantile crap at
the hands of supposedly adult dog lovers.

The other naive child (LSW) has to put up with the nagging
idea that if people like them had been posting earlier, maybe
we would not have had to hold the head of a really
magnificent animal in our arms while he was given the
needle and having to hug him and wait until he gasped
his last gasp.

To my mind, "naive" is believing you can terrorize a dog into
good behavior. Naive is believing that people that hide
behind fake names are more honest than people that use
their real names. Naive is thinking that dilettante dog
breeders and amateur "trainers" like Joey (lyingdogDUMMY,
j.h.) are the equal or better than those that have studied and
lived by their craft for decades.

"Stupid" is believing that people do not see kindergarten
level insults for what they are. Really stupid is believing that
people like Jerry Howe and Marilyn Rammell are going to
just go away because you people act like fools. Why do you
act like fools? I really have no idea, and I don't really care.

Only cowards abuse animals:

Here's some quotes and some methods right
outta your koehler book:

"Housebreaking Problems:
"The Koehler Method of Dog Training"
Howell Book House, 1996"

Koehler On Correcting The Housebreaking Backslider.

"If the punishment is not severe enough, some of these
"backsliders" will think they're winning and will continue to
mess in the house. An indelible impression can sometimes be
made by giving the dog a hard spanking of long duration, then
leaving him tied by the mess he's made so you can come back at
twenty minute intervals and punish him again for the same
thing. (Dogs are REALLY stupid. J.H.)

In most cases, the dog that deliberately does this
disagreeable thing cannot be made reliable by the light
spanking that some owners seem to think is adequate
punishment. It will be better for your dog, as well as the
house, if you really pour it on him."



Occasionally, there is a pup who seems determined to relieve
himself inside the house, regardless of how often he has the
opportunity to go outside. This dog may require punishment.
Make certain he is equipped with a collar and piece of line so
he can't avoid correction.

When you discover a mess, move in fast, take him to the place
of his error, and hold his head close enough so that he
associates his error with the punishment. Punish him by
spanking him with a light strap or switch. Either one is
better than a folded newspaper.

It is important to your future relationship that you do not
rush at him and start swinging before you get hold of him.

When he's been spanked, take him outside. Chances are, if you
are careful in your feeding and close observation, you will
not have to do much punishing. Be consistent in your handling.
To have a pup almost house-broken and then force him to commit
an error by not providing an opportunity to go outside is very
unfair. Careful planning will make your job easier.

The same general techniques of housebreaking apply to grown
dogs that are inexperienced in the house.

For the grown dog who was reliable in the house and then
backslides, the method of correction differs somewhat. In this
group of "backsliders" we have the "revenge piddler." This dog
protests being alone by messing on the floor and often in the
middle of a bed.

The first step of correction is to confine the dog closely in
a part of the house when you go away, so that he is constantly
reminded of his obligation. The fact that he once was reliable
in the house is proof that the dog knows right from wrong, and
it leaves you no other course than to punish him sufficiently
to convince him that the satisfaction of his wrongdoing is not
worth the consequences. If the punishment is not severe
enough, some of these "backsliders" will think they're winning
and will continue to mess in the house. An indelible
impression can sometimes be made by giving the dog a hard
spanking of long duration, then leaving him tied by the mess
he's made so you can come back at twenty minute intervals and
punish him again for the same thing. In most cases, the dog
that deliberately does this disagreeable thing cannot be made
reliable by the light spanking that some owners seem to think
is adequate punishment. It will be better for your dog, as
well as the house, if you really pour it on him.


"The Koehler Method of Dog Training (1962). New York:
Howell Book Book House(p. 52-53)."

Hanging

"First, the trainer makes certain that the collar
and leash are more than adequate for any jerk
or strain that the dog's most frantic actions could cause.
Then he starts to work the dog deliberately and fairly to
the point where the dog makes his grab.

Before the teeth have reached their target,
the dog, weight permitting, is jerked from
the ground.

As in coping with some of the afore-mentioned problems the dog is
suspended
in mid-air.

However, to let the biting dog recover
his footing while he still had the strength
to renew the attack would be cruelty.

The only justifiable course is to hold him
suspended until he has neither the strength
nor inclination to renew the fight.

When finally it is obvious that he is
physically incapable of expressing his
resentment and is lowered to the ground,
he will probably stagger loop-legged for a
few steps, vomit once or twice, and roll
over on his side.

The sight of a dog lying, thick-tongued,
on his side, is not pleasant, but do not
let it alarm you

THE REAL "HOOD"

"If your dog is a real "hood" who would
regard the foregoing types of protest as
"kid stuff" and would express his
resentment of your efforts by biting,
your problem is difficult -- and pressing.

"Professional trainers often get these
extreme problems. Nearly always the
"protest biter" is the handiwork of a
person who, by avoiding situations that
the dog might resent, has nurtured the
seeds of rebellion and then cultivated
the resultant growth with under correction.

When these people reap their inevitable
and oftentimes painful harvest, they are
ready to avail themselves of "the cruel
trainer" whose advice they may have
once rejected because it was incompatible
with the sugary droolings of mealy-
mouthed columnists, breed-ring biddies,
and dog psychologists who, by the
broken skins and broken hearts their
misinformation causes, can be proven guilty
of the greatest act of cruelty to animals
since the dawn of time.

"With more genuine compassion for the
biting dog than would ever be demonstrated
by those who are "too kind" to make a
correction and certainly with more disregard
for his safety, the professional trainer
morally feels obligated to perform a "major
operation."

"Since we are presently concerned with
the dog that bites in resentment of the
demands of training, we will set our
example in that situation. (In a later
chapter we will deal with the with the
much easier problem of the dog that
bites someone other than his master."

Jerry!

You helped me with my pal Dundee about a year ago
regarding submissive peeing. Just wanted to let you
know he's doing great- he was "cured" in about 2 days
using your techniques!

He has since become the "smartest dog in the world"!
Once I stopped thinking like a human and got inside his
head, I can teach him ANYTHING, usually in a matter
of minutes. Makes me look like an expert dog-trainer.

I rescued two strays last week, cleaned 'em up, wormed
'em, and am getting them their shots. Time to get inside
their heads and teach them to teach themselves how to
be good dogs!

Instead of feeling like "training" is a chore, I look forward
to working with these guys a couple times a day...

Although I don't follow your instructions "to a T", I learned
from you to "think like a dog" and stimulate their brain rather
than beating ass or pinching, or any of that nonsense.

I know damn well I would NOT be loyal to someone
who beat MY ass lol!

Well, just wanted to thank you for rattling the bushes
out there and teaching folks the RIGHT way to "train" dogs.

A horseman friend of mine uses very similar techniques in
training his horses- he calls it "natural horsemanship". He
is hated by nearly all the local "trainers" yet somehow he
repeatedly wins at every show he attends. He rarely shows
any more, but goes now and then to rub their noses in it
(pun intended)... Too cool....

Have a great holiday season and keep up the good work!

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
nippy).

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.)

Anytime.

Review the Hot & Cold Exercise and the Family
Leadership Exercise and the come command.
That'll give you absolute control.

>She wants to play and greet the other dogs.

That's good. Ask her to heel when you're walkin
her. Do the heeling pattern exercise when she
breaks to get involved with the other dogs.

> She'll forget all her training.

That's O.K. Work on the heel till you can pass
them withHOWET her breaking heel.

> She won't sit or stay.

Right. That's probably from bribing her to sit
before you started my method. The request
to sit increases anxiety if they've been bribed
to sit. It'll work when there's no other excitement.
That's the PROBLEM with treat or click treat or
any PHYSICAL REWARD methods.

> She just rears up on her hind legs and paws the air!

Good. Handle the lead pupperly and reverse
and instantly praise when she breaks the heel.
When she fails to reverse, ask her to come,
that's the default in part 2 of the manual under
Four Step Heeling Pattern Exercise. (Work on
that till you're proficient).

> When would be the best time to use
> the can with coins to get her attention?

We'd ONLY want to do that after the above fails.
You'd make the sound soon as she alerts on the
other dogs and continue working the heel command.

> I don't want to mess anything up by doing it wrong.

As long as you're not using the sound as an aversive
and instantly following it with praise and NEVER pullin
on the lead, you can't mess her up.

With the way she lunges you've got PLENTY of time
to effect a sound distraction.... but you gotta still be
workin the heel. Try to rely on the heel command to
get her through passin other dogs or greeting them.

If you got to use sound in front of other dogs they
got to be praised as well.

> When it's just the two of us and no distractions,
> there are no problems.

Seek HOWET some distractions soon as you've
reviewed the basics.

> What's the best way to handle this?

Just did.

> I really like your ideas:

LikeWIZE. It's a PERFECT method but it's
unforgiving of mistakes. But at worst it can't
make the dogs aggressive or shy so long
as you're praising pupperly.

> the way to hold the leash was a godsend!

INDEED. That's likey to be the first mistake
we make that triggers the dog to pull or bolt.

> I messed up a finger before I read your manual!

Yeah. That's the other reason it's so crucial to
handle the lead EXACTLY as instructed.

> Not using any type of treat is great,

Ain't it! We can NEVER have a bad day workin
with HOWER dogs cause even if they're not
cooperating we just follow the technique and
they got not choice but to be happy in their work.

As you work with her she'll calm down and eat less.

Subject: House training and such...
Date: 2003-10-08 16:18:56 PST

I've been having a problem with my dog, Axel,
relieving himself in the house while I'm away
from home.

I've used TPW method's, and yesterday I was out
for 12 hours, and Axel didn't have one single "accident".

Today, I had hoped that the results would be just as
good - and they were (I was out for 11 hours).

The problem began when, as a puppy, Axel would
relieve himself in the house and I would point at the
mess and tell him "NO" or "Bad Dog".

That made him afraid to relieve himself in the house
or infront of me.

After I got TPW's training manual, I corrected my
mishandling of these instances.

When I came home to an "accident", I would simply
drop a can near the area and ask Axel "What's that?"
Then I would clean it up - with out showing him I was
the least bit upset about the mess, and when he looked
at the spot I would tell him "Good boy, you're a good dog".

This has been an ongoing problem, and thanks to the
Puppy Wizard, we've finally got it taken care of...

Also, Axel LOVES the cat's litter box...He enjoys the
"snacks" he can find in there...I followed TPW's methods
by alternating sounds and praising him while or before
he sticks his nose in it, and today, he's been going into
the room with the cat box and barking. That's because
he's thinking about getting into the box, but he knows he
shouldn't.

Thank you, Jerry, for all you help. You've been a
blessing to all of us.

AIMEE

===================

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
around.

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
better.

Hey J,

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.

See ya,

Paul

INTRO TO WITS' END DOG TRAINING MANUAL
George von Hilsheimer, Ph.D. F.R.S.H.

Several years ago one of my old students telephoned
to me and asked me what I knew about Doggie Do
Right, a device to cause your neighbor's dog to stop
barking.

I had not heard of the device, nor its inventor, Jerry
Howe, but I telephoned, read his website, and told
my graduate that I thought the device was worth a
trial - indeed I shut up the dogs in my neighborhood
by turning on Jerry's supersonic device.

After all we all know that dogs respond to whistles
humans cannot hear, so why not respond to "attaboy"
sounds which humans cannot hear.

My student lived far from my Florida homestead, so
he tried it on the three incredibly savage, hyperactive
and noisy dogs who lived behind a tall fence just 3 feet
back of his bedroom.

Hot rats! The device worked,

Andy got his sleep and I didn't think much of the
matter again.

A few months ago I had new neighbors on each
side of my house, four of them, all with noisy
unshuttupable dogs. Argh!

So I foned Andrew in Virgina, received the intelligence
that his neighbors dogs were still quiet, and then I foned
Jerry Howe, the inventor of Doggie Do Right, who came
to visit me.

Merlin walked into my office.

Jerry is a slender fellow with a belly button lenghth grey
beard tapering down his chest. I liked him immediately,
and I applied his instrument to the neighborhood again
which again became silent.

It occured to me that if this ultrasonic field worked with
dogs that we ought at least to ask the question, what
happens to humans in range of the device???

I asked Jerry to give me a list of customers and began
inquiring among them. One thing became immediately
evident. The Doggie Do Right not only shuts up your
neighbors' dogs, it calms and modifies your husband's behavior.

Holey Moley, Captain Marvel, this device has major potential.

In the meantime Jerry gave me a copy of his Wits End
Dog Training Manual. I was delighted. He also introduced
me to the world of professional dog trainers some of whom
even have Ph.D.s in psychology.

This was not such a delight as it appeared that none
of these luminaries had actually read Skinner, Lazarus
or other fountains of wisdom in psychology. Indeed, it
seemed as though they knew very little about the laws
of behavior at all!

Punishment and confrontation seemed to be their
major stock in trade.

Well, if you go to my website, www.drbiofeedback.com
you can read of the career of Sam Corson, I.P. Pavlov's
last student.

Sam demonstrated that rehabilitation of hyperactive
dogs can easily and readily be done using TLC, tender
loving care is at the root of the scientific management
of doggies.

Pavlov told us so 100 years ago.

So what are these degreed morons doing punishing
dogs, and shouting "NO" into their doggie faces? If
you pick up B.F.Skinner's last book, CUMULATIVE
RECORD, included in it is an essay by Keller Breland
and Maryann Breland entitled THE MISBEHAVIOR OF ORGANISMS.

Skinner deliberately included his students' chapter
to emphasize that you cannot manage the behavior
of animals unless you take into consideration 1. the
animal's evolutionary niche (who is the animal?);
2. the animal's personal history (who is the animal?)
and 3, the instinctive repetoire of the animal (who is
the animal?) and 4. the personality of the animal (who
is the animal?).

The Brelands moved far from the white rat. "Thirty-eight species,
totaling over 6,000 individual animals, have been conditioned, and
we have dared to tackle such unlikely
subjects as reindeer, cockatoos, raccoons, porpoises,
and whales. "

Jerry Howe spends most of his times with dogs, but
he has learned Pavlov's lesson well. Dogs are individuals,
they are individual DOGS, and they respond most directly
and immediately to love and tender loving care.

Read with pleasure, and then go love your dog.

Subject: DOGGIE DO RIGHT, wanna join the party?

Andrew, Jerry Howe is here as I type and we have decided to
create a human mellowing branch and to sell the marvel mystery
device. Here is my first draft. What do you think?

George

Friends and colleagues:

A couple of years ago I became interested in Doggy Do Right
(DDR) a sonic device which inhibits barking in your neighbors'
yappy dogs. I tested the instrument and became pleased at the
silence in our neighborhood.

I perused the manual for the DDR which has significant
guidance for loving your own dog so that the wee beast no
longer leaps up on you, howls, whines, tears up your shoes,
escapes, digs holes, spins around, throws up in the car, eats
paper, self-mutilates, fears thunder, suffers when you go to
the store and don't take him, and all the other ills and
behavior problems to which the domesticated dog is prone.

Jerry Howe, the inventor of the DDR, understands doggy
behavior so well he might well have been a student of Sam
Corson (Pavlov's last student who fixed hyperactive dogs, and
started our profession, as well as the profession of "Pet
Facilitated Therapy").

It occured to me that we might put ourselves out of work. If
a sonic device can mellow hyperactive dogs, why wouldn't it do
so for hyperactive kids and neurotic adults?

So, I am inviting a few friends and colleagues to join me in
forming a company, which will lease BABY BE GOOD; HAPPY
BOY; SWEET LITTLE GIRL; MAMA BE MELLOW; PAPA BE
STRONG - these are just first pass names for the device in its
several adjustments. Jerry Howe, genius inventor says you
have to refine the adjustment for .

More than a thousand owners agree that DOGGY DO RIGHT
happifies the dogs next door so they don't bark. DOGGY DO
RIGHT also happifies the dog in your home so that she doesn't
do all the unwanted, unpleasant things that dogs often do.

AND!!! DOGGY DO RIGHT happifies the humans in your
house so that they are more mellow, happy, quiet and not
so dratted obsessive and angry.

Problem here. Is this therapy? If so the poor little silently
singing device needs $4,000,000 to do an FDA study.

THANK GOD! IT ISN'T THERAPY!

It is the same effect that Baroque music has on emotion, learning,
behavior and memory. Baroque music mellows and enhances and
so does DOGGY DO RIGHT.

Of course, these wonderful results have to be proved, by
acceptable means.

=======================

Jerry, don't think I sent this to you. A remarkable success
for DDR - I keep wanting to call it, Doggie Be Good, DBG.

Maybe we ought to try it as an alternate name! Set up your
own competition.

Fondly, George

I have to agree with George. I found out about this and asked
George to look into it. Got good results, so I bought one. I
have 6 LOUD dogs outside my back window, chained up all the
time, less than 50 feet behind the house. They used to keep me
up nights until I bought the DDR machine. Now, quiet.

Yes, they bark when someone gets too close at odd hours, but
then they stop. Used to be they would bark for hours. (Their
owner must wonder what happened, I called the cops a couple of
times, but didn't want to drag him into court.)

The inventor is visiting with me. I am severely impressed.

So, I wanna know, do you wish to explore with me the marketing
of this device.

Greg tried the machine out; Andy has one; I can't recall if I
told John about it or not. You'd love the guy, he looks like
Johnie Appleseed before his hair went white, long black
beard, but no bs.

Not defensive at all when I asked the hard questions; a bit of
an idealist when it came to making money, but he's sold a
thousand of the damned things, and has some very solid
references.

I ran his EEG when the instrument was broadcasting and
damn it changed the brainwaves. Hot rats.

I think we could do good, and do well, too.

The point of it is that my evidence is that it will calm down
kids, stop seizures, and mellow out their parents. We have to
prove this, but he already has a psychiatrist with excellent
comments; and me; and sampling his sales will build a lovely
package. 1000 sold already.

I made another trial with new dogs just up the street and the
damned things shut up. The dogs next door have remained
silent since I first tried it a year ago.

What ya think? George

=============================

A non dog owner, Dr. Von, a child psychogist and
biofeedback training specialist, tested my machine
at the request of one of his friends who wanted his
opinion as to the efficacy of my machine. He loves
the concept, as it mirrors his approach to educating
difficult children:

I just had a nice talk with the man who invented
the "doggydoright" device.

If you know someone working at a shelter etc
who wants to quieten the dogs in the neighborhood
then this is an ideal present for them - and he will
sell it at a discount. He sounds like someone we
all know who has no sense at all about money.

Nice, nice man.

"doggydoright" may be obtained from
T*d@EarthLink.Net

I now have four locations at which the thing has worked,
so I recommend it.

Yap yap yap no more! I have zero financial interest in this.

Shucks, I mentioned how Jerry Howe, the Puppy
Wizard, teaches how to eliminate the need for
punishment, including time out, and forgot to give
Jerry's website http://www.doggydoright.com

Jerry is a perfect example of teaching using fun,
humor, and effective methods. Pedantic, Jerry
is not.

If your neighbors' animals are driving you crazy,
his ultrasonic device is amazingly effective.
