    I'll say the same thing here I said where I saw this elsewhere - I only got to the part where he said he thinks it's wrong for people to act like bullies, then I laughed so hard I choked on my own spit and passed out. Now I'm afraid to go back and try to read any further. :p

    His followers are lunatics... I've had the misfortune of meeting several in my area. Absolute crazies.

    A lot of the CTEs are starting to offer agility and competition classes. One in Calgary offers herding too. Despite never competing in it themselves.

    I'd love to see him try to teach something like agility or another sport. I think that would be... interesting.

    Yeah, I would LOVE to see him try to do something competitive... :rolleyes: I imagine any agility dog of his would be painfully slow.

    I've never seen his shows or anything..but he sounds like an idiot.

    I had to laugh at 'As Adults, we are supposed to be setting a president and an example for the younger generation.' Isn't it precedent? :p

    Let's see.... toss the dog on a martingale and drag it over everything, slam it into the contact zones, rip it's head through the weave poles and 'reward' by stopping that to massage the chest. Oh yeah, he'd be good. I'm worried.

    I did find the responses a bit of a change over what he's said in the past. I doubt he has any respect for anyone other than his huge head. I like the 'we have standards but you'd have to come take a course and become a CET to find out what they are'.... ick.

    I wanted to mock that as well, but to be fair, it may have been a phone/live interview and that may be the author's mistake.

    Mostly I just want to whip that guy's head into a tree a few times. Do you think he'll defecate because he's been a pompous donkey for so long?

    I wont read it, (but thanks for sharing it), he has nothing to say or do that I am interested in or want to learn (unless it is how to not doing something). He makes me want to throw things at the t.v when the show comes on, I hear the music for it and turn it off.
    Good thing is, he has recently been dropped from a Ottawa Pet Expo, too many ppl contacted the organizers and stating that they refused to support the Expo if he was there including a lot of vendors and trainers. Ottawa dog people rock!! (no I am not from Ottawa :).

    Haven't read through the entire thing, didn't want to actually, but just for curiosity sake, then I hit this:
    Sofa king WRONG!!!!! Chickens are FLOCK animal, essentially, the same dam thing! Shows how knowledgeable he really is. I don't care if you don't like chickens, I don't much like cows, but if you're going to make an argument on a topic to try an relate it to yours, GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT!

    And I know this, because I'm a chicken owner, the owner of a very substantial flock, too much at times (I'm drowning in eggs!). The chickens prefer to "flock together", not all of them get along sure, and because of that we'll never have Wyandotes again, I didn't name her Meanie for nothing. But chickens prefer to belong to a flock, ever seen a flock of wild Turkeys? Yes, hens separate during chick season, but they all regroup after.

    Well, as for factual accuracy regarding chickens vs dogs, I might start with the fact that dogs are not pack animals, lol.

    lol, I love that one too.

    But oh my, this guy can't even give a good, strait answer when asked about "BSL" :yikes:

    EDIT: Now this is just WRONG!
    Just, wow, I can't believe this wack job is legally allowed to be around dogs! Let alone, "training" them.

    I know, so in summary, Brad Pattinson, you've managed to make ignorant assumptions about two species. :wall:

    I have no idea how ANYONE likes this guy.

    At least with Cesar, he's personable and nice to people, and regardless if some people do not like him or his methods, at least he's not out right.... stupid. He seems to actually respect and LIKE dogs. This Brad guy just doesn't even seem like he likes dogs. Or people. Or anything.

    I'd love to hear what Victoria Stillwell thinks about him liking HER hahah.

    I know, I'm not a fan of his methods at all, but I admit CM's show is a guilty pleasure I watch because I do like his mannerism and how good he is with people, and he does love dogs, and to tell the truth I have not been allowed to watch VS show at all since the, 2nd or 3rd season? because my family HATES the "tone" of it, and really I don't like it either, drama, yelling, family feuds, that music, I really wish she could be contracted to do a show more like Good dog-U was, I think it would be better off and I'd more readily watch it.

    So in other words... no, he can't define them.
