Adrianne, the reason I finally joined is because they had taken a picture of my friend showing her Borzoi and a few crazies started going off about breeders and how they***8217;re all bad. Thankfully I think the main instigator was banned or dismissed or whatever happens to you on FB, but yeah...

If this is the image positive trainers are forging for themselves I despair
That is, sadly, the exact image they're giving themselves. I shudder when I hear someone is a "positive trainer" for that very reason. Now, I KNOW the people here on Chaz, so that's an exception. But elsewhere...yeah, crazy people.

I have been a member for a long time, but I only occasionally read. When I'm in the mood for a train wreck, or if another of my friends makes a comment somewhere about a particularly heinous thread.

I have no love for CM, but a lot of the people on that group are doing absolutely nothing to benefit their rabidly-held beliefs.

Exactly. It's the same feeling I get when I hear "balanced"

I don't think 'positive' or 'balanced' is wrong, I just find the people that scream them and "defend" them the loudest tend to be some of the cruelest people.

And OwndedByBCs I hope you don't feel that way so much on Chaz! It's mellowed so much in during the years and is pretty much the epitome of what I think most training discussions should be. People having lots of fun with their dogs, training for the enjoyment, helping eachother troubleshoot and interesting discussions without the bash fest.

Honestly there are so many MORE positive trainers who don't do that, I don't understand the idea of a few fringe giving the rest a bad name.

Thought this was a winning quote from that page

"How can anyone use pain and fear and claim to love their dogs? And how can anyone be so one sided? Spineless hypocrites!"

And how can anyone be so one sided?

This. Exactly this. It's not that I have a problem with the methods, because I don't. Not at all. It's all THIS.
