Internationally renowned dog behaviour expert and star of The Bio Channel’s Dog Whisperer With Cesar Millan is returning to Australia with a new seminar. Cesar will share his secrets on how to transform dogs and their owners in the unique and new live event that has wowed sell out audiences across the UK, Canada and Europe. He reveals that the secret to happier, healthier relationships between humans and their canine companions starts with transforming ourselves.
What are your thoughts on the controversial superstar's methods in dog training? Do you love him or disagree with his practices?
I absolutely detest Cesar Milan and believe he is nothing more than a bully. I just can't understand the need for choke/check chains, prong collars, electric shock collars, putting dogs into submissive positions (alpha rolls) and keeping them in anxiety causing situations with no escape to desensitise it (flooding), among other things!!! Some of his video clips from his Dog Whisperer program are extremely upsetting to me.
I believe in positive reinforcement and rewarding good behaviour and this has worked best for my animals.
