Positive reinforcement (aka clicker training) is the way to go. That man makes me mad just thinking of him.

I think the guy is amazing on what he does for troublesome dogs

Heck, anyone can "cure" a dog of something if you choke them long enough. Fear is not the way to train a dog, at least in a way that makes it last. The "alpha" theory in dogs has been long debunked but he keeps making money off of it.

I'm sure you hate to see Pat Summitt retire. She's a living legend and hopefully she'll live in comfort the rest of her life and deal as successfully as possible with her condition. I went to UCLA and my freshman year was John Wooden's final year coaching the Bruins and he was fortunate enough to win his final NCAA championship that year. Although UCLA did win one more national title since then, all of the coaches that have succeeded him have had a hard time trying to live up to the reputation he established.

Yeah, it's a sad thing for women's basketball. but she has one heckuva set of coaches who, hopefully, will have learned something!

All those people cant be wrong. I think what he does for dogs is amazing, as for choking ?????? Ive never ever seen him being cruel to any animal. Are you watching the same program?


#77
I'm with DC. I haven't watched the Dog Whisperer in several months but I never remember Cesar choking or being cruel to a dog in any way. I forget exactly how his saying goes in the introduction to the show, but he usually is training the dog's master(s) how to handle their dog as it's usually something they're doing wrong that is causing the dog's behavior issue. He teaches them how to be the leader of the pack.

I knew Stanley.
Stanley was a friend of mine.
