This forum is operated by Victoria Stilwell Enterprises, LLC (“VSE”) and is committed to providing information about positive reinforcement dog training as well as information and activities relating to Victoria Stilwell. As such, any user posting information which is deemed by VSE to promote aversive, dominance-based training ideologies will be warned that such activity does not promote the philosophical ideals of this community and will be asked to refrain or risk being removed. While VSE and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not VSE, moderators or webmaster and hence will not be held liable.
