Well, I watched my first (maybe last) episode of VS' show today. Such freakin' drama! The same weepy and horrified acting that she exhibited on "Greatest American Dog" was what it was all about. That's after she allowed the dogs to blast out the door past her, risking their lives, for the sake of drama. Didn't someone said she would never put dogs at risk or harm?
Oh well. I don't watch CM (but have seen a handful of episodes) and won't be watching VS (now that I know when it's on, I may turn it on if convenient, to see if she's less of a drama queen on other episodes).

I love observing other people train, but I think I'll stick to real life. Unedited is so much more honest.

I never saw Victoria Stillwell's training programs. I guess not having Cable or sattelite has a lot to do with that.
But after seeing her on Greatest American Dog, I can honestly say I don't care to. She's an utterly disgusting individual. I can see why Paully likes her so much.

Gee, there's a shock, Janet doesn't like a positive trainer, lol.

It has nothing to do with "positive" (which is such a bizarre and bs term anyway). I find her theatrics irritating. Did you think it was a good idea for her to stand and shake her head and look sad instead of trying to grab the dogs racing out the door past her? All for the sake of "drama tv". I don't like the drama on CM's show either. As I said, TV dog training is far too edited to be of much use IMO.

As opposed to your very neutral opinion, eh?

I never saw her train ANY dog. I saw her opinions and theatrics on Greatest American Dog. She irritated the hell out of me. I did not like HER. I did not like her self righteous remarks. And she was very narrow minded. I liked the border collie. Those rubber bands were NOT cruel. They are approved by the humane society for Christ's sake.

She was just full of herself and snotty.
I can't judge on how she trains a dog. I just don't like her.

I agree with you here.
I like VS though, despite the drama (though I've not seen Greatest American Dog!)
She wouldn't be my top choice for a behaviourist/trainer if I needed one but I would trust her with my dogs.
I would rather Brian, the dog from Family Guy train my dog than CM. Alison

Stick to Days of Our Lives ;-D
Seriously, I've never seen anyone who can be so weepy and sullen. She did it a lot on GAD and she did it on this episode. I don't find that very motivational! CM is at least a cheery guy (he kind of reminds me of a hamster). Both of them are playing to the audience but I find his general personality a whole lot more appealing (ok, except for the tssst thing, which mostly gets on my nerves because JQP seems to think it's some magic command). I'm sure they both have successes and failures with the dogs.

Well, the whole reality show premise is to pump up the drama, and I found GAD mostly intolerable (although I really liked the boxer and his owner). Discovery has wrecked "The Alaska Experiment" by changing the premise and larding it up with telegenic youngsters with no outdoor skills
whatsoever. But that kind of thing, and what Stillwell is delivering, seem to be what most people want.
