    I've had one like that.

    Maybe it had a screw loose.
    Maybe it was preventable.
    Maybe it could have been rehabilitated.

    Maybe, maybe, maybe.

    It's easy to sit outside and point fingers.

    But, the one thing that I'm certain of, is that once you've had a dog like that, you don't want another one.
    No matter how much the experience taught you about rehabilitating a dog like that.

    Thanks, Pete.

    Even if the owners get the dog to back down, what's gonna happen when it is around other people? That is why most people have dogs, to hang out with them. Pet dogs are always around other people. And the people are clueless. One day someone will not be paying attention, and the baby will walk by the dog holding a hotdog and bam! Dog goes ballistic. Scares the crap out of me.

    Along with the training come maintenance and management. So if you have company over and there is a good chance food will fall to the floor with children around,,just stick the dog in a crate. Sounds easy doesn't it..but a lot of pet owners have a hard time doing that because they think the dog must be out and about. People' emotional myths about dogs end up causing a lot of heart ache. Its easier if people set them selves up so they don't have to pay attention to the dog

    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    The wicked walk on every side when the vilest men are exulted

    Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    In reading these post the thought comes to mind of a comment Danny Farmer made in one of his videos about the 3 phases of dog trainers...When we are so quick to make fun of others that are not in our little circle , like Ceaser,Leerburg and others of different persuasions aren't we in danger of getting hung up in stage 2? ....The know it all group.....Pete, 2nd Tim 3:16 , not ever thing in this world is scripture but a lot sure is profitable for learning and living ,reproof,correction and wise instruction for living.....

    I resisted watching his show for a long time because of the name. Assumed it was just another new age cookie trainer with an angle. Started watching a few years ago and was very impressed. He understands and reads dogs exceptionally well and his timing of corrections is almost perfect. In my opinion, the more you know about dogs, the more you can get from watching him work with dogs.
    I would suggest that those who don't "get" what he's doing don't truly understand dogs or dog behavior. In my experience, many professional retriever trainers fall into this category, unfortunately. One man's opinion.

    Cesar knows it's much easier to train the dog than the owner. It's amazing how ignorant some owners are about dogs & their training.
