DO NOT BUY THIS PLEASE!

"PLEASE, do not buy/watch this unless it is for purely entertainment value and not educational. It is painful to watch this show if you have actually worked with wolves or know ANYTHING about them, witch this man clearly does not. His research method must be that he sees something happening one time and then tells the world that this is always the way it is. For example, the alpha eating the liver? In captive packs, unless the wolves are starving, the alpha doesn't even eat first, it's just whoever wants to go first will and can take whatever piece he wants for doing all the work of opening the corpse. And him not showering and only eating meat? I can tell you from personal experience, wolves don't care what you eat or if you use soap, as long as they are properly socialized animals they will be friendly. We have people go in with our wolves after a thorough safety video and get along just fine with our pack and we have never had a serious injury; what he puts Helen through in this show should be defined as abuse. I can't go through everything he spouts as "truth" about wolves, but he is just plain WRONG about so many things about wolves. It angers me that he claims to educate people and then has such terrible facts, and people believe him, because he says he has worked with wolves his entire life! (Which is another lie, he started in 1990).
I will just beg of you: If you must watch this, please do not pay for it and support this awful production, and do not believe anything he says about the way wolves and wolf packs are without really researching it yourself."
Living With The Wolfman ~ Season 1 DVD

"This dvd is a must have for wolf lovers! Shaun is a brilliant researcher and though his methods may seem a bit unorthidox by some, he truly gets to the heart of the wolf. Never before has someone been able to get an inside look at wolves, and pack dynamics... directly from the wolf's point of view.
In this dvd, Shaun's fiance, Helen, is introduced to the pack in hopes of becoming a wolf nanny. Helen brings humor and a bit of innocence that was very endearing. It was wonderful getting to see the wolves through their eyes.
Definitely worth it! The only thing I didn't like, was the fact that it got canceled after the first season!
My recommendation... check out his other DVD documentary from the Discovery Channel, "A Man Among Wolves". You'll never look at wolves the same way again!"
