Lech, stolen and held for ransom…

2

 

Today I bring sad news… It has come to my attention that my very good friends, Ted Summers and Alesha Brandt, have fallen prey to the vile and scheming actions of Richard Starks and Meredith Thompson of DogPatch Downs Daycare and Boarding in Ocala Florida.

I can write up a whole article about what has went down, and why, but Instead I will share the original posting with you all since it will explain what happened. I will also add pictures of proof of theft and shady dealings by Richard Starks.

I will say this tho…. I am disgusted! This man, Richard Starks, is the lowest of the lowest scum that can be found on the planet. Apart from his lies and shady dealings, his boasting and misleading ways and blatant disregard for law and justice has now added theft to his already impressive record of faux pas. To take a dog and use it for ransom? Truly despicable! I would ask of you all to stay far away from this person since he will not hesitate to scam you out of your hard earned cash with his trickery.

I would ask all that have read this article, and that have seen the pictures and proof posted to please share this post far and wide! Let’s make sure that Lech becomes too hot to handle so that he can safely be returned home into the loving arms of his owners, where he belongs!

Regards, Alice MacKenzie.

This is what actually goes on at DogPatch Downs Daycare and Boarding in Ocala Florida

Our dog AIK CHIEN POLICIER aka Lech our 5 year old intact microchipped male Belgian Malinois has been stolen by this facility under the guise of doing business with “his facility.” After finding out about his habitual lies, drug use, fake 501c3 organizations and that he doesn’t even own the facility or have rights to sublet it at all- we stepped back- he decided stealing our dog and making threats to try and strong arm us into paying was his best option.

Now Richard is GREAT at playing the victim- saying we “owe” him something including filing false police reports which he’s done both to his own daughter and us. Neither went anywhere because he has a long history of it.

TRUTH- Richard Starks is a long time dog thief and con artist.

Richard Starks- does not own the property, never has- owes his grandparents who both call him a “crook and liar” $36000. Richard keeps a large amount of illegal narcotics in the kennel itself (pictures below) he has claimed he has been a part of the French Foreign Legion and Blackwater BOTH LIES he claims he’s titled in French Ring and is a French Ring decoy- BOTH LIES he’s claimed he has MULTIPLE CHARITY ORGANIZATIONS all lies- he’s not filed taxes in years- business, personal or otherwise. In FACT the ONLY way he can even afford to eat is his grandparents and Eugene Monroe (his buddy) constantly loan him money. He brags (pictured below) about it- he claims Eugene is his personal ATM lol.

GIVE US OUR DOG BACK RICHARD AND MEREDITH- if anyone sees these two crooks- RUN- if they attempt to sell or have our dog transported from Florida call authorities and us at 918-636-1767 #ocala #florida #doggrooming #boarding#petsitting

10Richard sending threatening texts about destroying our dog that he claims we abandoned- in truth Richard asked us to leave our male there because he wanted us to rent kennel space in "his" kennel- we agreed only to find out Richard Starks does not own the property, owes the property owners $36,000, keeps large amounts of illegal narcotics on the and has kidnapped other people's dogs and done the exact same thing to them.

Work your dog, not your mouth…

20160306_130029

 

I am irritated… and annoyed… and just downright fed up with people constantly telling other people what they can or cannot do with their dogs in terms of training, over how wrong they are in their way of training, over how they are misguided, stuck in the old ways, abusive and mean and even stupid or idiots when these people are yet to accomplish a single thing in terms of dog training to begin with.

It is the new fad out there. To get on your computer or mobile and to assume the keyboard warrior position as a means of sharing your knowledge, or lack thereof…. What is this incessant need to go out there and chastise people for the way they train or do things, or have done things in the past? Why should they now suddenly adjust their way of training a dog to suit you? What makes you so special that your word is law?

I am old school when it comes to dogs. I stick to what I know, I do not fix what isn’t broken and I do not follow the latest rave of doing things one way or the other. I look at the dog in front of me and adjust my training to that particular dog. One training style does NOT fit all! But the new generation of trainers, and I use the term trainers very loosely since everyone is a trainer these days, the new generation know exactly how to tell you what you are doing wrong, and why, because they went to school! And they got a certificate! They had a dog once! They simply know it all these days and boy do they get upset when you disagree with them… They start throwing out things like abuse and bully in hopes of getting a response, or to get heard… The problem is tho that the more they speak the less they are listened too since the same old babble gets old after a time and explaining why you do something a certain way gets old after doing it over and over…

Then the anger starts to really shine through when you ask how they would do it differently but still get the same desired response of effect at the end… they fall silent then. Answers are not something that can be given because they lack of knowledge and experience suddenly shows and they go back to saying one is old school, or lazy, or mean, or not willing to change their views…

Here is the thing tho? Those views have changed over the decades and more than once. Most of us “old school” trainers have already seen it happen before and have done it before and guess what? It didn’t work then! And it will not work now! So yes, we get irritated and annoyed when someone comes up to us on the internet or in real life for that matter, and starts telling us how we are all doing it wrong because science says so! Dogs have changed according to them! Nope, dogs have not changed…. People have changed! Dogs are still dogs with the same clock making them tick inside…. People however have changed and are forever changing as time moves along. They keep trying to fix what isn’t broken, thinking they are making steps forward when in fact they are moving backwards. Society has changed as a whole, putting HUMAN ideas and thoughts on everything they can under the guise of HUMANE treatment. Everything has to be nice and sweet, kisses and cuddles and politically correct for the sake of appearance. It doesn’t matter that this HUMANE fad is damaging the dogs… as long as it looks good. Shelters are filling up due to this state of mind. Dogs are being put to sleep due to this state of mind. Why? Because a dog is no longer allowed to be what it is to begin with! It has to respond to human thought and interaction with human knowledge. It has to think in human terms and read their owners or trainers and give them back a human like reaction because the dog reaction is not appreciated one bit. If it nips it gets labeled a danger and its life is now at risk… Never mind trying to raise a dog like a dog, it has no place being a dog in today’s society, it has to think and feel and react the same way we do or it will pay the hefty price of losing its life for not doing so… Here is the kicker tho? All those dogs in shelters? New generation trainer dogs….. Dogs that didn’t conform to the views of the rigid mindset of the new age trainer or owner. Because dogs should now be treated with human respect and human dignity they are no longer getting what they need which is dog worthy respect and dignity. And the trainers that are old school like me? The ones that still treat a dog like a dog, and give him his dues and respect in a dog worthy and respecting way… we get blamed for it, and told we are antique and mean and evil…

Let me tell you tho? It isn’t our dogs that are filling up shelters! It isn’t our dogs that are going around biting kids and random folks in the street! It isn’t our dogs that are getting labeled as unmanageable or dangerous! Our dogs are just fine! They live a happy life, and fit into society without to much issue. We do not feel the need to push our training style or ways on others…. That is something that the new generation of trainers is into…. Us old school trainers? We don’t give a rats ass on how you train your dog… Just don’t tell us how to train ours because our track record when it comes to dogs is a hell of a lot cleaner and fairer than the track records of the new generation trainer and we do not give up as easily on a dog simply because it presents us with problems. We just adjust our training to deal with those problems and do not try to push our dogs into boxes that they will not fit into to begin with…

So yes… Work your DOGS and not your MOUTH! Listen, ask questions, try to understand and most of all try to learn something before you throw your new generation weight around and point fingers at people… You might just pick up some valuable knowledge that way and your dogs will surely thank you for it!

Disclaimer: By new generation trainer I am of course making a generalization of sorts which is unfair of me and I realize this. Not every new generation trainer is as I have described. But I will say this… If this article is a sore spot for you? Or hits home in any sort of way? Lace up that shoe and wear it!
