How to abuse your dog like a Pro

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro
I refuse to watch your station because you promote this infomercial dog abuser. Behavioral science has shown us how dogs learn and how to shape their behavior, keep their stress levels down and actually teach them rather than abuse them into listening. This ignorant man prides himself on having no education in canine behavior or training, and yet sells his little kit on how to abuse your dog to make it listen on a public station that purports to promote education. Shame on Channel 12, and I won't watch you until you get rid of this terrible program.

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro
Hi! I have three big dogs I have been training for three months using Don Sullivan's training methods. His program works! It makes sense. Dogs are not people, their animals and they need proper leadership and guidance to become the best friends they can be to humans, and Don has found a way to have our dogs not only love us, but also respect us as well. I love this program and my dogs are obeying me when they never did before. People are impressed with my dogs training, esp. when I take my six month old and 70lb German Shepherd puppy to the vet, behaving very nicely. I even had an opportunity to guide another person with this program because she didn't know how to train her German Shepherd to obey and respect her. It's just a wonderful training program that makes our dogs love and respect us even more than before. Thank you Don Sullivan for making a way for dogs to live happier, calmer lives! Sarah

Don Sullivan's tv show

Just wanted to thank you for saving our home by airing this show. we lost 3 of our long time furry family members last year and it was devastating. We recently add two American Bulldog puppies and boy I forgot what it was like to have wild and crazy little balls of energy tearing up my home. As much as I tried, it fell on deaf ears. I bought Don's system one night after losing my 5th pair of expensive shoes! It was such an easy and fast training program. required very little correction (that did not hurt or injure my pups)and in 10 minutes I had them walking beside me on walks. He makes so much sense and the collars are so much easier than a pinch collar or jerking them down the street with regular collar. There is no pulling at all. They play with their toys only and stay in their yard. Thank you and Don for bringing this show into our homes! God Bless you and Happy Holidays!
