Re: “The Story of Mac & Jill

Sexual assault of our military women is rampant..last year alone there were over 3,000 assaults. Just as in the cover up with the Catholic Church, there is a cover up taking place with this. First now is truth starting to be known.
In looking at the photos of Mac, the greyhound, the very first photo is the beautiful dog with a "pinch collar" around his throat. Just a pinch! Can you imagine! I spent a year and a half in training with greyhound Buddy with just his martingale collar...and the first thing we were taught is "loose leash"...no jerking to correct. Maybe Operation Wolfhound should get with the times, especially with greyhounds, they respond to positive training. There were six dogs in Buddy's class, one of them a Rottweiler and he wore a regular collar. When have you ever seen a therapy or assistance dog wearing a metal pinch collar. Like never!!! These trainers might want to contact Handi-Dogs and ask them about positive methods of training versus a pinch collars. Jill might want to look into the training her dog is getting...as she has suffered abuse the gentle greyhound with a pinch collar that acts as a bite on the neck is also abuse. This is not necessary.
Jill would not be having a problem with either her work place or her landlord if this was a certified licensed assistance dog...then it would fall under the Disability Act. Apparently the trainers have not prepared the dog for certification.
I would hope now that Arizona Greyhound Rescue has seen these photos, they will take time to educate Operation Wolfhound on the characteristics of the Greyhound Breed. Very sad indeed.
