Dunno. Just caught sight of it and watched it, probably is a repeat I suppose. This one had an Jack Russell that peed everywhere, a cat murdering bull terrier and a hyper-active (and very beautiful) Weimaraner.
Just wondered what people thought about it.

The Jack Russell did very well so there was no question of giving it away, must have been a different one.

I think there are some good bits but whats with all the press-ups and the attitude?

All the press ups and stuff is just Mick Martins way of instilling discipline and I must say some of the owners really need it to.

The one where he gave his JR away was on last week, that guy needed some sort of order in his life, he kept full poo bags in his car errrrgh

I really like the programe though and as you say some great tips....didnt like the one with the Amercan bull dog though....wont say any more

loved that one and also loved the one when Mic had the two yorkies - pmsl !!

I like this show because it shows that its generally the owners that need training - mind you that newfie had his own mind !

didn't see last nights episode tho' - had a virtual night out !

Hmmmm.
I thought there would be fans, which why I didn't want to dis' it. I can definately see the point about correcting the owner rather than the dog. I just think the press-ups and karate black-belts and 'DOG IN!' is pure TV. Dogs are not intimidated by black-belts, they don't go in for that sort of thing! :twisted:
I thought the distraction techniques, heel training and other stuff was useful. I think I just have a problem with the military sterotype as a military person myself, I think it puts us in a bad light! :|

:roll: I quite like that Mick! he doesn't beat about the bush, and forces the owners to realise that 9/10 it's them and not the dog.

I really like it when he falls for a dog, and his mutterings to the camera make me laugh :lol:

To be honest i want to take most of the owners aside and give them a good kick up the bum and tell them to get a bit of oompf. Last one i watched was the brown collie X who was very aggressive. I'm not sure how that would turn out in the end. The guys were really trying but the dog was soooooo wanting its own way. :shock:

that's why I like Mic - he may not be tactful, he may not always get results but he makes the owners try hard (not saying that the other guys don't !)

it can seem a bit theatrical at times and I have to agree with Wet Dog about the dogs not caring about black belts or uniforms or whatever ....

I do like the way that Mic stands up for his team tho' - I saw one programme with a bloke who had a white alsation - quite agressive (the dog) - and this bloke was taking the p*** out of the kennel manager - Mic stepped in and calming diffused it and sent the bloke on his way.

It's not going to be to everyone's taste - I don't like Eastenders (too gloomy for me !!)

Fair enough! And to be fair the problem usually is with the owner. And I guess you've got to make TV interesting too :D
