    How come people can accept chicken behavior, cat behavior, and pretty much any other domestic/wild animal, etc and for the most part accept/manage it? BUT when it comes to dog behavior they are somehow supposed to "know what is expected of them" and react as a reasonable human would and if they don't we try and take short cuts to correct this behavior with extreme measures such as shock collars.

    Don't people know that dogs aren't equivalent to TVs and cannot be controlled with a remote??

    Is it the alure of the illusion of the "quick fix?" Have too many people been deluded by watching old Lassie movies and reruns of saving Timmy from the well?? Maybe Rin Tin Tin, as well?

    Someone please enlighten me, because I don't get it.

    kthnx.

    Because people are ignorant, foolish and lazy. The End.

    and I dont think you can blame Lassie, otherwise everyone would think that all Kangaroos tell you when people get stuck in mine shafts.. Good Ol Skippy [​IMG]

    y'know, I kinda thought that, too, but maybe I have the same expectations of people as delusional people have when it comes to dog behavior.

    I think I need to re-evalute human behavior. I want to think they are smart, but they just aren't.

    Every one is entitled to their opinions..
    Neither one is right or wrong...becasue they are just that...opinions. Some people think shock collars work...maybe they do..maybe they dont. I dont know..i've never used one. I dont think we should judge people though.

    well thank you for the moral lecture.

    It's easy to say "don't judge people" ... if I didn't make judgements I would be walking around with my head up my butt. Everybody makes judgements and has observations.

    carry on.
