Cesar Millan The Dog Whisperer, only knows how to dominate a dog.
I had originally planned never to criticize Cesar, regardless of how often he gets it wrong. Awhile ago I was asked by an advertising company who was handling his latest video release, to write a review about it. I was very generous with that review, even after I was shaking my head in disbelief after watching him chase yet another nervous dog around, this dog being a nervous German Shepherd in the owners back yard. My reason for this is, he has a rather large soap box to stand on and too many people follow his well meaning but inaccurate advice.
In the below National Geographic video link Mr. Millan, talks about how these types of dogs (aggressive dogs) put him on the map and that he loves working with them.
First off the dog in his video is not an aggressive dog, this is just another fear aggressive or nervous dog. And for him to continually describe this type of dog behavior as aggressive, not only shows how little he has learned in his years with animals. But can possibly be doing irreparable harm to the estimated lifespan of that dog, especially if the owners think they have an aggressive dog on their hands. Not to mention the fact that he constantly uses the wrong approach while training these “aggressive” dogs. For a truly aggressive dog, see this video : Aggressive Dog Bite Video
Quite frankly dogs that are truly aggressive are not only reasonably rare, they happen to be rather simple to deal with. Unlike their more nervous brothers and sisters who require a lot of love, patience and confidence building, such as the dog that you will see in his video.
