One more thing came to kind of makes you wonder how he "TRAINS" his own children. Also, I sure would NOT being leaving my baby on the floor with all those dogs around.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

This is sooo upsetting to me. How can this be allowed in this country. We have so many laws, but not enought to protect children and animals. People like him make me worry about our country.

Exactly, what's the point? Why would you get a dog if all you want from them is to obey their place command for 4 hours? What's the point?!

Eiksaa there is no point in having a dog of its going to sight for lengthy hours on end!!! It's awful everytime I see something happen to that little fluff I give daiy extra cuddles. I don't think that poor fluff is going to get any cuddles by the sounds of it.

Is it not considered animal abuse to Force a dog to lie and stay on the cold snow? If the dog is wearing a shock collar, than he has a choice of being shocked or laying like that on the snow. What kind of choice is that. I think it would not only be uncomfortable to lie on the snow but it would hurt too. When its cold and I walk on my patio without shoes my feet really hurt.

Hard for me to get on SM much because of my injury and very uncomfotable to sit at my computer but I just saw this and was incensed. Poor baby! And the owner is just stupid leaving her there...she heard all the warnings but didn't care.
Is there are way to get the aspca involved in this in RI by aiming them to the website and pointing some of this out. And what about the local tv stations in Providence for an investigative piece? You might want to try. I wish this guy would get run out of town on a rail.

That is SICK! Please report it!!! I can't even hold an ice cube for too long without it burning my skin. Just imagine that poor baby's sensitive skin being forced to stay on the ice cold snow!!!! That is just so messed up

I guess I will be the only person to say that this is not necessarily animal abuse. A Maltese is capable of laying down in the snow for a moment without injury.

I absolutely do not agree with the methods this guy uses to train dogs, but putting a dog (even a Maltese) in a down-stay in the snow isn't going to hurt them. Now, if he were asking for a several minute long down-stay, I would be concerned about that. I would also be concerned if the dog were out in the snow for a prolonged period of time even walking around because of the paw pads (and cold temps).
