Ha, I just sent a link to your article to "Whole Dog Jounal." Perhaps you could send them an invitation.



They definitely need education after their "What's Wrong With "No-Kill" Animal Shelters" in their latest issue:

I like and respect Pat Miller as a trainer, but she's definitely "old school" when it comes to the "shelter" industry, in which both she and (currently) her husband have worked.



It's a shame that someone who "got" positive dog-training techniques in a heartbeat doesn't recognize that bashing "bad people" doesn't work any better than bashing "bad dogs." She doesn't appear to get what the no-kill movement is about, and she doesn't seem to understand that it's about communities, not hoarders and closed-admission shelters.



S'OK. Change is hard, especially when it challenges long-held beliefs. But change is already here when it comes to "shelters" that kill for population control and blame "bad" pet-owners for the industry's own lack of vision and leadership.
