Title: We Reject the Endorsement of Brad Pattison’s Training Methods by the Mae Bachur Animal Shelter - Yukon Humane Society

413 Signatures Goal: 300

We, the undersigned, affirm that we reject the Yukon Humane Society’s association with the dog training methods of Brad Pattison as published in his books Synergy (2009), Brad Pattison Unleashed (2010) and Brad Pattison's Puppy Book: A Step-by-Step Guide to the First Year of Training (2012). We are opposed to the methods described in his published works of how to pin a dog (a minimum of 20 times in a one hour period), of how to pinch a puppy’s ear until it yelps, and of how to strike a dog with a closed fist. We believe these methods are in direct conflict with the humane treatment of animals and are in direct conflict with the mandate of the Humane Society. Studies have shown that these types of training methods may have detrimental outcomes, especially on shelter dogs with predisposed anxiety and issues. We would ask the Mae Bachur Animal Shelter - Yukon Humane Society to speak out for the humane treatment of animals in their care, as well as territory wide, by advocating for training strategies that do not cause pain or fear to their animals, and by canceling Brad Pattison’s upcoming seminar/appearance in Whitehorse on September 15th and 16th and to end any and all further affiliation with Brad Pattison, his trainees (CTEs) and their methods.
