No no no, I don't "like" him at all! But I "liked" his page to check on his goings on with these babies. On the down low since it sounds like if we comment we get banned! It's just beyond me how someone could send a little maltese to this guy.

Ok I admit that I stalk his page now and then. I guess I do it just to piss myself off. I don't see where he talks about manolo coming back for retraining. Where did you see that? Also I don't think the op wants a real dog. She should get a stuffed dog for a pet.

It's the caption for the snow pic. Does this count as animal abuse?-imageuploadedbypg-free1357659636.639478.jpg

I came back to look at this pic again... it breaks my heart. NO he does not need to get used to basic obedience training on different surfaces such as snow. It's unnecessary and cruel.... and whomever said its better not use treats as a learning method I ask why ??? It makes no sense. Dogs are food driven and there is no harm in giving treats for good behaviour. So is it better for the dog to learn in fear??? This man is psycho. His teaching ways are horrendous !

I don't understand the necessity of a small dog needing to practice a down/stay in the snow for any period of time.

I took Sadie for a walk last night (her first time out when there is snow on the ground) and I was beyond worried that she would be too cold with her little paws touching the cold ground. I would NEVER make her sit or lay down on the ground in these temps, never mind do that in the snow!!! The poor thing would turn into a pupsicle!

This makes me sick

That poor dog is not even in a full coat. Im guessing the hair at his belly must be short, since in the rest of the body it is, hence he's not getting much protection from the hair. He's even putring his little legs in a certain position to cover his belly. That guy is nuts! And I agree with most of you, to me it is abuse. That guy should be put to do the lay down command naked and barefeet on the snow... See if he will like that...

This makes me sick. Zoe doesn't even like walking on cold tile, I can't imagine what the poor baby must be going through with snow!

Something has to be done about him and his "training" methods.
