? These situations can be more than a little tricky for folks to follow – especially for those interested folks on the periphery of the dog world that are less technically oriented.
? This is my attempt to give a plain language explanation these folks would find easy to follow – assuming they’re willing to sit through the duration of the video.
? I made this video** yesterday morning (09.02.2023) to try and help folk that have an interest in the dog training world more easily understand the current social media hullabaloo surrounding a statement made @zakgeorge
? In the mean time this situation has evolved.
? At the time of recording I had not watched the responses put forward by @robertcabral or @ivanbalabanov . I am certain that they will be reasonable, thoughtful resources for folks wanting to know more. Ivan is well known for providing such responses.
✅ Late yesterday Zak posted a video in response to the two trainers listed above calling out the flaws in his statement, and whilst editing this video this morning I saw that Ivan had put out a short and final video in response to that.
? My advice to those wanting somewhere to start is to check out Ivan’s response on YouTube entitled “The Real Facts About Science Based Dog Training“
**I did this video in a solitary take. I’m sure I could do a better job with prior planning and more time to invest, but I’ve done what I could with the time that I have.
