You're not gonna have any "control" group within five

everyWON will hear it.

Although DDR will calm instances of excitement or
aggression, the way DDR works is rather generalized.
You'll probably not be seeing immediate results, because
this is a LEARNING process. The cats fighting over territory
or evacuating HOWET of their litter boxes will probably
need a couple of days to rehabilitate the ANXIETY that
causes them to indiscriminately fHOWEL their territory
> > This is not a big problem if new cats arrive regularly.
You'd have to have a history of their behaviors before
turning on the SHOWEND, and take a history over the
forthcoming week or two after the SHOWEND therapy
has been instituted.

Probably the best way to determine if DDR is having
any effect would be to ask the caretakers to make
notes of anxiety behaviors, aggression, fHOWELING
HOWEtside of litter boxes, self mutilation, seizures,
etc., and compare that with those behaviors after the
DDR is introduced.

You'll not have to supervise the proceedure very closely,
so long as the DDR is run appupriately by the staff.
> Such is my fate for the next two weeks,
I'd suggest having the staff at the shelter observe
and make notes on the comfort levels of their
critters. New arivals would be introduced to the
SHOWEND, and their progress monitored and
compared to PAST observations and expectations
of their adjustments to the facility.
> so I will have to postpone my experiment at least that long.
If you want to be there yourself, that'll probably not help.
The nature of the process will not show you any immediate
results. You'll do better with casual observation over a period
of a few days or weeks.

That too, may be difficult to quantify, as those critters
may be difficult at first, and will likely make natural
adjustments to their environment and caretakers,
regardless of the SHOWEND.

THAT'S THE PUPULATION TO STUDY!!!
We can turn those "unsuitable" critters into HOWEskats,
in a few days of just listening to DDR.

Engrossing account, Anthony. Our best to Angel

A friend, who socializes the kittens I've taken
from a feral cat colony, is using the DDR.

Indeed. But the prospect of a "blind" study will
be impossible, in this setting. The only way to
do a "blind" study would be to have several
shelters operating "live" and "placebo" DDR
Machines, and then comparing the staff's

The Puppy Wizard would not deny any critters of
benefit, on the basis of compiling data. The data
will be REVOLUTIONARY to say the least, just
by turning DDR on in their environment and asking
the staff for their observations over a week or two.

"The Koehler Method of Dog Training (1962). New York:
Howell Book Book House(p. 52-53)."
"First, the trainer makes certain that the collar

or strain that the dog's most frantic actions could cause. Then

However, to let the biting dog recover
his footing while he still had the strength
to renew the attack would be cruelty.
The only justifiable course is to hold him
suspended until he has neither the strength
nor inclination to renew the fight.
When finally it is obvious that he is
physically incapable of expressing his
resentment and is lowered to the ground,
he will probably stagger loop-legged for a
few steps, vomit once or twice, and roll
over on his side.
The sight of a dog lying, thick-tongued,
on his side, is not pleasant, but do not
let it alarm you
THE REAL "HOOD"
"If your dog is a real "hood" who would
regard the foregoing types of protest as
"kid stuff" and would express his
resentment of your efforts by biting,
your problem is difficult -- and pressing.
"Professional trainers often get these
extreme problems. Nearly always the
"protest biter" is the handiwork of a
person who, by avoiding situations that
the dog might resent, has nurtured the
seeds of rebellion and then cultivated
the resultant growth with under correction.
When these people reap their inevitable
and oftentimes painful harvest, they are
ready to avail themselves of "the cruel
trainer" whose advice they may have
once rejected because it was incompatible
with the sugary droolings of mealy-
mouthed columnists, breed-ring biddies,
and dog psychologists who, by the
broken skins and broken hearts their
misinformation causes, can be proven guilty
of the greatest act of cruelty to animals
since the dawn of time.
