And then he gets a call from a Border Collie breeder with a two-year-old emotionally damaged BC who needs to be rehomed. The breeder had read one of his books and knew that Mr. Katz was the perfect person for this dog. She actually pesters him until he agrees to take the dog. Then the terrorized dog is put on a plane as opposed to being quietly driven to it's new home. When it arrives at the airport it is spinning crazily in it's crate and yet Mr Katz opens the crate door and surprise, the dog escapes. Then ensues a chase of seemingly immense, and to the dog, terrorizing proportion. It is eventually captured and taken to Mr. Katz home where it begins it's training with Mr Katz yelling commands that the dog is incapable of following, and then having "throwing" chains and pooper scoopers thrown at it along with corporal punishment. Mr Katz finds that the best way to exercise this needy dog is put a fence between it and the road and encourage the dog to chase large vehicles.Read more ›
