Product Description

Cesar Millan has been called the Dr. Phil for Dogs. With an uncanny ability to rehabilitate problem dogs of all shapes and sizes, Cesar has captured the national spotlight with his hit TV show on the National Geographic Channel. Each episode of the Dog Whisperer documents the remarkable transformations that take place under Cesar's guidance and teaching, helping dogs and their owners live happier lives together.

Amazon.com

If you think your dog has behavioral problems, you'll feel better after watching 10 minutes of Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan's hard-luck cases. The smashing success of Millan's National Geographic Channel series is due partly to that feeling of relief--that no matter how bad your own dog's behavior, by and large, it's not nearly as bad as Millan's clients'; it's kind of like Nanny 911, but with dogs. Millan is also a telegenic, confident animal handler, whose basic message is reinforced in virtually every case: Don't treat your dog like a human; treat him like a dog, and be the alpha dog of your own household/pack. This canine golden rule applies to all kinds of doggie nut jobs: crazy little Chihuahua NuNu, who bites everyone but his owner; big sweetie-pie Great Dane Kane, whose puppy mishap sliding on a slick floor has made him terrified to walk on tile or linoleum; Brooks, who spins in circles trying to re-create a game involving looking for a laser light; and Maya the pitbull mix, who's sweet-tempered enough to let a kitten "nurse" on her nightly, but who tears apart her household a dozen times a day. One of Millan's most amazing success stories in this 26-episode series involves Churchill, a Rottweiler-shepherd mix who's docile and loving at home, but literally tries to attack all other dogs and even bites a neighbor, thus ending up on the brink of doggie death row. But within 15 minutes, Millan's calm confidence, and gentle but firm application of tugs on a well-angled leash have Churchill passing and sitting near a strange dog placidly.

Extras include some outtakes, footage of Millan's beloved wife and kids, and a hilarious "audition" tape, in which owners with their unhinged dogs are telling an off-camera producer why their pet should be considered for the show. All the while, the dogs are pacing, whining, refusing to budge and otherwise providing a lot of unintended amusement. --A.T. Hurley

I am a veterinarian and I see many behavioral problems. I have euthanized many animals that have taken control of their owners. I am also a college biology instructor and I can assure you that Cesar's methods are right on. Dogs are pack animals, all of them, from pekinese to border collie. They can never escape their genetic background as pack dominated social animals. Cesar uses that pack energy to establish order. The person who talks about pain and intimidation never watched the show. His methods are far more humane than prong collars and crates. I have used his techniques with my clients and have had great success. I thank him daily. Be the pack leader, watch this DVD

I have three stubborn, larger, loving dogs. For the past six years I used love, affection, and the reward system. Although the relationship I had with my dogs was great, nobody else could see that wonderful relationship. I could not invite friends over because my dogs would jump on them. We could not go to the dog park because me dogs would chase other dogs - not to hurt them, but it scared the other owners. We had to walk before 5am or after midnight just to make sure we did not run into other dogs on our walk. I was becoming so frustrated I was beginning to think I might need to get rid of my bulldog.

But then I found Cesar....I immediately began using his techniques because it made sense to me. My dogs did like and enjoy the pack-ness of our home - they just did not see me as the leader. I am happy to say that by following Cesar's rule of exercise, disipline, affection (in that order) we have a much happier household. Not only do my dogs respect me, but everyone else they encounter, especially while we are on our daily 45 minute pack-walk.

As hard as it was for me to admit, THEY ARE DOGS, not people - they do not have ability to reason like we wish they could...and at least for me and my pack a clicker was just something else to chew up.

Cesar saved my dogs from my insanity and uneducated approach.

Buy this DVD and book if you want a simple, dog appropriate, proven system.

I've seen the negative reviewers describe Cesar's work as "so out of date as to be archaic..." "Cesar's methods work. But they use force, fear, and pain" (CelticRaven7). "I think his methods are very old fashioned" (P. Smulders). "Cesar Millan's methods are old fashioned and psychologically violent." (Barbara Tosto "dog lover").

Old-fashioned techniques? Have dogs somehow evolved to a higher level in the past 20 years, and are no longer hard-wired pack animals w/an alpha leader?

Force, fear, and pain? While I've just recently discovered the "Dog Whisperer" TV show, I've watched every episode NGC puts on, taping the ones that air at odd hours and watching them later. I don't see how a quick jerk on the leash is "force", the standing foot-tap "pain", nor do I see him coming in and making the dogs "fear" him. I'm no expert, but I imagine a fearful dog would either try to attack Cesar, or run away w/tail between legs. I've seen neither occur.

As far as "psychologically violent"... well, I guess you'll have to hire a pet psychic to verify that one. [/sarcasm] What I see are dogs that have gotten out of control in one way or another, some quite violently, and Cesar coming in and adapting his methods to the dog's problem. The little Shih Tzu that wouldn't walk on its leash? He just took it out of sight of its house, put the leash on, and stood for a few minutes till the dog acclimated to the sensation, then started walking, calm and assertive.

At the other end of the scale, the episode with the snarling Korean Jindo, "JonBee", brought me to tears, as did the one w/the aggressive boxer that was a day away from being put down--Cesar's so-called "red zone" dogs. Psychologically violent?

The poster who stated that Cesar's methods are archaic and use pain to correct the dogs obviously hasn't spent time watching the show.

Cesar never causes the dogs any pain or injury. In fact, several of the dogs on his show have bitten holes in his hands but he never, never reacts in a way that is painful to the dog. He maintains his calm assertive self.

Cesar's corrections consist of a noise "shhhh" and a brief tug on the leash. Cesar works with the type of collar the owner has on the dog. That may be buckle, choke, martingale, or pinch/prong. None of Cesar's corrections are physically damaging to the dog. Incidentally, the prong/pinch collar is not a cruel device when used correctly. It is meant as a TRAINING AID, to be used for no more than 2 weeks to help gain control of larger dogs that need help mastering leash etiquette. A person should ALWAYS consult a professional trainer for information on the proper use of pinch/prong collars. Shock collars should never be used unless they are set on a "beep" only setting and under the supervision of a professional.

Please, if you own a dog, watch this show! This DVD set is filled with valuable information about canines and our relationship with them. Cesar gives good information in a no nonsense way that anyone can follow. The first season was wonderful, and you can bet I'm going to tune in for season two! Our canines need an advocate like Cesar.

I'd give this two thumbs up!
