    What do you base that comment on?

    I personally think Victoria is ridiculous. I saw this episode where when the family were eating their big dog would snatch food off the table. She used the theory 'how would you like it if you were being eated in front of and wern't allowed any'. Last time I checked, they were dogs, I am boss and they shouldn't be treated like humans.

    I don't like her either! I think she comes across a bit smug actually!

    I have watched both of them in action.

    Victoria - in the style of the SuperNanny (another annoying but interesting character), always watches the whole household, then works on the owners first. Sometimes she assesses the dog for "listening" skills but essentially - she starts and ends with the owners.

    Cesar - in the programs I have watched - spends a lot more time with dog, dealing with what ever problem the owners tell him it has - or he sees it having with the owners. So for example he will desensitize the dog to whatever it is freaking out about, but doesn't necessarily show the owners what he is doing, or show the owners how they contribute to their dog's problems and how to correct that.

    Victoria's car and leather and whip are all ideas of her TV producers. She's not particularily into all of that but it helps with marketing. Same as Jamie Oliver and sliding down banisters in jeans...

    I've never seen Cesar sit down and explain to the owners how they contribute to or re-inforce the dog's problem behaviours. I suspect (excuse my personal prejudice) it might lose him customers/audience in the USA.

    But am I wrong - does he do this and I've just missed those particular shows?

    He's a know-all wanker with no knowledge about dog psychology whatsoever. I'd skip his "education" and go for someone more serious and pleasant such as Turid Rugaas, Suzanne Clothier etc...

    He will spend time telling them where they are going wrong like...they are humanising the dog and not letting it be a dog. He probably doesn't spend as much time as Victoria (don't know how much is edited out though).

    I believe in some of the things he says and not other things. I don't believe that prong collar and E-collars are necessary.

    Me neither. My American dog forum swear by them.

    Oh that's sad, Aussiemyf.

    That is cruelty IMO, and has no place in our world, or our pet's world.
