haha. I love that guy. I have yet to see an ep where he uses violence or abuse to get the animal to do what he wants it to. He may use a bit of force, but not enough to hurt the dog.
Caesar was on one of those morning shows on Wednesday or something. It might have been 9AM with David and Kim. I only caught the end
Education not Legislation
How cruel, that poor dog! Imagine being bullied like that for hours on end.
And holding his tail out is going to help his mental state HOW???? WTF?!
*The videos didn't want to work for me
There is NO SUCH THING as alpha dog, at least not among those who live with us and have been tame for centuries. Anyone who has ever bothered to scratch under the surface and to read a bit about the way dogs live, function etc. would know it. There are however breeds and individual dogs who are more strongheaded than others, more stubborn and harder to train and we like to call them "dominant", which is also quite wrong.
I don't really feel like bragging about it again, as I already have several times on this forum, but there are some great books about the way dogs function, about the way they evolved from wolves (not yet 100 % proven ). I think everyone should read them including this "#%&' Cesar Millan who is nothing but pathetic show off. Those 3 video clips are perhaps a bit exaggarated, but there is abuse on every corner by people who listen to his crap.
I suggest everyone reading Coppinger's "Dogs" and see wher dogs are coming from, the ethology, what they are and how they function. We live with dogs, and dogs aren't wolves.
It's really sad that we humans have a face to call dogs our best friends, and behave towards them like thei're c*ap.
