    I have never been a fan of the guy. I work as a vet tech I will tell you if you don't learn to read animals then you get bit a lot. In the video with the food aggressive lab the only real problem I seen was the cameras. He was worried more about Shooting a show than paying attention to the dog. Asserting dominance is nothing new to any of us I don't think. Cameras have no place When working with animals with these issues. Not because you are trying to hide something but they are a distraction and distractions get you bit.

If you don't like to read, save your money; just watch some reruns of his shows practically anytime on Natl. Geographic channel. The gist of his mantra is that most dogs get far too much attention and not enough exercise and discipline and that too many people try to treat their dogs like humans and expect them to behave perfectly just because they are loved (((((eye roll)))).
    I agree. It's no use hating on Cesar - I think he does way more good for dog owners than any bad mistakes. If you watch his shows you get the gist. If you hate reading not sure if there's much more in the books? I haven't read them. He also knows his limits. I've seen a couple shows where he's called in specialists (with wolf hybrids and retrivers) for more specialized training. But for the average dog (as pet) owner I think he's generally a good influence.

    He did a segment with Missy Lemoi where she showed him blind retrieves and how an e-collar worked. He came away impressed.

    Amen to that. Millan reminds me of the television evangelists who suck dollars from "the faithful" while providing nothing but empty rhetoric and a lot of b.s. instead of real solutions and guidance. Stick with what is proven to work, no matter if it's Graham or Lardy or Wolters (especially for young dogs and dogs destined to be primarily "family dogs") or whoever it is who possesses the credentials and experience to support their success...and not some camera-loving, self-centered, money-grubbing, grinning wannabe trainer like The Great CÚsar.

    Edit (addition): The opinions expressed above are meant purely to share my own personal feelings about The Great CÚsar, and are not meant to be libelous or slanderous. This is, after all, the good ol' USA so each of us has the right to express his or her own opinion!

    I think the man's a genius.
    I wish I were smooth enough to earn $250/hr by telling a client to not be so stupid to allow their dog to pee on their leg. Oh, and to take the dog for a walk every now and then. No wonder he's the alpha-male pack leader. Pure genius.
