The Greatest Atrocity ever Committed (and still is) against Mankind and ÂMans Best FriendÂ originated in the United States. C.W Meisterfeld
Big Mistake California Trainer - Author says Alpha Dominant Training Fails
The Seattle Times/ Seattle Post Oct 18 1992
C.W Meisterfeld noted Petaluma California canine Psychoanalyst Expert Witness Certified by the US Judicial System and Dr Ernest Pecci a Bay Area Psychiatrist pointed to the famed Alpha forceful dominance dog training method as the origin of what ails thousands of our dogs in their book ÂCrazy dogs & Crazy peopleÂ - now retitled ÂDog & Human Behavior: Amazing Parallels Â· SimilaritiesÂ.
In a article entitled ÂNeurosis in DogsÂ in the Oct 28 1972 issue of Saturday Review Dr Michael Fox a US veterinarian began touting the Alpha Method ÂPerhaps the best thing we can do is to imitate Nature to a certain extent. We have heard a great deal about raising dogs by watching how a wolf raised itÂs cubsÂ
Fox cautions owners ÂMore Animated and independent breeds, especially terriers required - and at times seem to demand a firmer hand and even violence in order to establish dominanceÂ
ÂThe owner like the parent wolf must be ÂTop DogÂÂ
Dr Pecci emphasizes ÂObedience from dogs and from children is dependant upon establishing a devotional bond based upon Mutual Respect and Trust.Â
ÂDominance based upon intimidation may obtain momentary servitude compliance, but eventually anger will over come fear and then rebellion or violence may be the resultsÂ
ÂDominance training, viciously shaking the dogs head, back and forth (SCRUFF SHAKE) can result in permanent injury to the brain and the spinal cord at its juncture with the neckÂ (DEATH)
Meisterfeld estimates that since 1963 he has reprogrammed 3,000 uncontrollable dogs previous trained by others.
The heart and soul of reprogramming Meisterfeld emphasizes Âis the recognition that dogs have feeling and emotionsÂ
Why The Friendly Puppy Suddenly Becomes a Wild and Vicious Animal?
For the past 32 years, dog owners were instructed to mimic the wolf's behavior and become the dogs "Alpha Leader of the Pack " if their dog didn't submit they were instructed to use Koehler's Method: "Hang "em" until they pass out and /or whack them across the muzzle with a rubber hose inserted with a wooden dowel to curb aggression. Ironically if you tried to use any of these methods on any other animal including your house cat, you will trigger a very primitive survival instinct and you will more than likely be bitten.
Both of these abusive and brutal training methods originated by America's top dog Trainers and their books have been promoted and marketed throughout the world.
These various abusive and even violent methods have changed our dogs' natural friendliness of being Man's Best Friend to becoming man's most dangerous enemy especially to children that in earlier years they were their protectors.
New Behavior Imprint
Meisterfeld believes within two or three generations of dogs being trained with abusive and violent methods their once original friendly nature is transformed into becoming vicious.
This new behavior imprint could be compared to:
The research discovered by Anthropologist/Psychologist Karl Ortiz "isolated island population of totally passive and peaceful tribal people who were attacked by other warring tribes were transformed into becoming a vicious and war like population inside of a very short time period of one to two generations" As their environment changed their behavior changed.
This similarity could explain why inside of less than 25 years the once recognized friendly breed's, (Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, and New Foundlands) have become vicious, and even caused human fatalities, mainly children including babies in there cribs.

Treatment of Behavioral Problems Associates With Canine Aggression
ÂAlmost without exception, physical punishment, including the use of prong collars and electric shock collars alpha rolls, and dominance down can make an already aggressive dog worse. Owners should be discouraged from using these training techniquesÂ

ÂBanning and terrorizing ÂMans Best FriendÂ has not remotely solved the Global dog problems. They have only created FEAR Â·PREJUDICE Â·HATE On a Global LevelÂ
