    LOL! I'm soooo allergic to tech-jargon. I've a strong belief that it's become a way to EXCLUDE rather than describe. It keeps us mere mortals in awe of those who use it - and don't always understand it themselves. Like a secret password to the clubhouse. It has its uses in highly technical professions, like engineering, physics, and dealing with computers, but it has absolutely no honest place in anything that involves dealing with people - especially people and their dogs!

    Beware trainers who use buzz phrases! :p
