    They will believe what their guru tells them to I expect but it's always refreshing when someone reads up on different methods and re-evaluates their knowledge instead of blindly following without having learned anything else. I expect many trainers and experienced owners have altered their ways after finding out that there is more than one 'expert' to follow. ;) I always believed in learning from a variety of sources though and making use of the best bits without slavishly following one persons teachings, least of all a celebrity!

    She did use to be into pack theory not in a pin your dog to the floor and kick in the side way but eat before your dog etc. Even then she used positive training. She was the trainer that made me see CM wasn't a god incarnate when it came to dog training. A friend told me to watch his show and then VS's both training aggressive dogs. The difference just completely shocked me
