I really dislike it when it is all or none ... black or white ... good or bad. It bothers me. Why? Probably because it is misleading and it's not real life. Correct me if I'm wrong, but in my experiece, real life is not yes/no, black/white, good/bad answers ... it is full of grey matter. When trainers start preaching their way or the highway and push that the only way is their way, it really irks me.
On the flip side, it really bugs me when I am talking to a client and they want a definite answer. I can't always give that.
Sometimes the answer really IS "maybe".
Next time you're talking with a trainer or veterinarian about your dog, please don't get mad if their answer is maybe. It could be that "maybe" is the best answer they can give.
Have you ever had an experience with this? When? What was it about? Was there any grey matter?
