Many thanks to all who’ve taken the time to read my recent post on the irrational treatment of punishment in dog training. For any new visitors to this blog, I’m not always so long winded.

Thanks especially for all the thoughtful comments, which, among other things, have demonstrated once and for all to my husband that I am not the only dog trainer on the planet to consider these questions, though I may suffer a slightly above-average obsession with them. They also set a record for comments to a single post on this blog.

Last, thanks to those who either linked to or blogged on the post (hey, I finally added a share button–who knew?), whether or not you agreed with the ideas expressed. I’d intended the article to be thought provoking, and think it succeeded.
