You're not gonna have any "control" group within five
hundred feet or MOORE of the DDR Machine, cause
everyWON will hear it.

Not if they're all exposed to the SHOWEND.

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
fight, etc.

> > 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.

We can turn those "unsuitable" critters into HOWEskats,
in a few days of just listening to DDR.

Well, this will be a HUGE benefit for their critters.

       Engrossing account, Anthony.  Our best to Angel
and your family.

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

       She reports far fewer panic problems than
she's had before.


> Meanwhile I will plan my approach, and your
> guidance has been very helpful indeed.

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
reported observations.

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.

 Are those MENTAL CASES, or NOT? Here's MOORE:

RPD* Mentally Ill AllStaRz as of 7/4/03

Mental illness is a public issue in these newsgroups.

People are always running around calling other people
mentally ill and diagnosing their illnesses. I think it's only
fair that we have an accurate list of who is and who isn't
mentally ill, so that we can avoid any misunderstandings
and promote group harmony.

You think HURTIN dogs and CRINGING

Means the author is a dog abuser of the worst magnitude.

"When you bring home the Bitter Apple for the first time, spray
one squirt
directly into the dog's mouth and walk away. The dog won't be too
with this but just ignore him and continue your normal behavior."

You think HOWER pal mikey is playin with a full deck?

Yeah. When I preload my dog's mouth with bitter apple,
suppose I don't get used to being stupid and cruel, mikey?

Then HOWE do I train my dog if I can't HURT it?

Sez on our FAQ'S pages at K9 Web you should knee the dog in the
chest, step
on its toes, throw him down by his ears and climb all over it like
a raped
ape growling into his throat and bite IT on his ears, or leash pop
it on a
pronged spiked pinch choke collar or pop him in the snout with the
heel of
your palm.

You failed to mention your pals the dahls are
proven liars and dog abusers, professor "SCRUFF SHAKE:"

           "I Would Never Advise Anyone To Slap A

LUCKY thing CHIN CHUCK absolutely don't
mean slap the goddamned dog, we'd look like
a conspiracy of LIARS and DOG abusers if
CHIN CHUCK DID mean SLAP the dog.

"I don't see why anyone would want to choke or
beat a dog, or how any trainer could possibly get
a good working dog by making them unhapper,
fearful, cowering, etc." sez amy lying frosty dahl.

Or HOWE about HOWER just plain CRUEL
professor SCRUFF SHAKE?

amy lying frosty dahl continues:

           "On the other extreme, the really hard dogs
           we have trained require much more
           frequent and heavy application of pressure
          (PAIN j.h.) to get the job done,

          This is continued resistance to your
          increasing authority, and the job is
          not done until it is  overcome

          Get A 30"- 40" Stick.You can have a helper
          wield the stick, or do it yourself. Tougher,
          less tractable dogs may require you to

         "Try pinching the ear between the metal
         casing and the collar,  even the buckle on
         the collar. Persist! Eventually, the dog will
        give in but will squeal, thrash around, and
        direct their efforts to escaping the ear pinch"


           "You can press the dog's ear with a
           shotshell instead of your thumb even
           get a studded collar and pinch the ear
          against that Make the dog's need to stop
          the pinching so urgent that resisting your
          will fades in importance.

           CHUCK IT Under ITS Chin With That Ever
           Ready Right Hand, As it catches on, try
           using the stick and no ear pinch.

          When the dog is digging out to beat the
          stick and seems totally reliable without
          any ear pinch, you are finished

           This is continued resistance to your
           increasing authority, and the job is
           not done until it is overcome"

          If the dog drops it, chuck it solidly
          under the chin, say "No! Hold!"

           (stay on the ear until it does) (perhaps
           because the ear is getting tender, or the
           dog has decided it isn't worth it)" lying
           frosty dahl.

Here's some quotes and some methods right
outta your koehler book professor "SCRUFF SHAKE and scream "NO!"
into its
face for 5

"The Koehler Method of Dog Training (1962).  New York:
           Howell Book Book House(p. 52-53)."


"First, the trainer makes certain that the collar
and leash are more than adequate for any jerk
or strain that the dog's most frantic actions could cause.  Then
he starts
to work the dog deliberately and fairly to the point where the dog
makes his

Before the teeth have reached their target,
the dog, weight permitting, is jerked from
the ground.

As in coping with some of the afore-mentioned problems the dog is
in mid-air.

           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.

         "With more genuine compassion for the
         biting dog than would ever be demonstrated
         by those who are "too kind" to make a
         correction and certainly with more disregard
         for his safety, the professional trainer
         morally feels obligated to perform a "major

          "Since we are presently concerned with
          the dog that bites in resentment of the
          demands of training, we will set our
          example in that situation.  (In a later
          chapter we will deal with the with the
          much easier problem of the dog that
          bites someone other than his master."

Are we havin FUN yet?
