I don't have foxtel.
I watched it and the living conditions those poor dogs exist in is absolutely disgusting.
I think it's fantastic some dogs were able to be rescued, I do feel sorry for the dogs who take their place in the cages though. Unfortunately I don't think taking the unwanted dogs really addresses the main issue which is the living conditions and over breeding of dogs. The people running these farms simply treat the dogs like crap, palm them off to rescue when they stop being able to breed, no consequences for ill treatment of animals of course, and then refill the cages with the next generation of breeding stock. And so begins the cycle again!!!
I don't mind at all, it'll be very interesting to read!
Yeah C&B, I'd like that. Thank you very much. See what this dude has to offer and why everyone is talking about him.
No worries You may need to remind me though!
At least then you can watch and form your own opinion! I reckon though to get a better take on him (after all, tv is so edited), go to the library and get out a couple of his books.
My opinion is not a nice one though! I also have links to videos to show what I'm talking about with him too.
ETA: Nicest way I can think of putting it is the following: He is a brilliant businessman, great marketing ability BUT IMO he should NEVER be allowed to assess or treat ANYONE's dogs' behavioural problems ever. Yes he runs a large pack himself, but they are his dogs, that he works with daily. Very different to other peoples dogs. And there are far too many people who have no knowledge or ability who subscribe to his methods and follow the written stuff to a T and call themselves Dog Whisperers...
IMO if he really cared about the dogs he wouldn't have the tv show, it doesn't show the full picture and cannot be replicated in peoples homes.
